James Gunn talks about Guardians of the Galaxy 2

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the recent news that Awesome Mix Vol. 1 would be released on special edition cassette next month and Guardians of the Galaxy becoming the third highest grossing Marvel movie (as well as the highest grossing domestic release of 2014), it must be pretty good to be James Gunn right now.

But how is he celebrating the success? By writing the sequel…

“I spent all day on August 1st, the day the first movie was released, writing Guardians 2,” he told Variety. “I was so excited about it and I was finally able to let go of the last one and begin the second one. I always saw this as a universe, not just as one story.”

He also gave a scoop on what we can expect from Guardians of the Galaxy 2, “It’s going to be a really surprising open. What happens is all the characters are killed in the first 10 minutes, »

Guardians of the Galaxy is now Marvel’s third highest-grossing film

19 October 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel Studios’ space opera Guardians of the Galaxy continues to do well in China, and has now become Marvel’s third highest-grossing film behind The Avengers and Iron Man 3, surpassing this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the worldwide box office.

Guardians has now grossed $733 million worldwide, placing it in fourth place at the 2014 box office, behind X-Men: Days of Future Past, Maleficent and Transformers: Age of Extinction. It definitely stands a chance now of passing both Days of Future Past and Maleficent, which have grossed $746M and $757M domestically.

So much for the titular group of outlaws-turned-heroes being a “risky” bet for the studio, eh?

Guardians of the Galaxy sees Gunn directing a cast that includes Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) as Groot, »

Even More Bad Lip Reading Of The Walking Dead Season 4

17 October 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In the fourth season, we see Rick and the group of survivors fostering a thriving community in the safe haven of the prison only to have it short-lived as the group loses everything, their home, family, and friends to the threat of the walkers, outside threats and the hidden dangers brewing inside the fences. The group of survivors are broken apart and sent on divergent paths, unsure of everyone else's fate as they are exposed to new dangers, new enemies, and heartbreaking choices. They will have their faith thoroughly tested - a faith that breaks some of them and redeems others. The Walking Dead stars: Andrew Lincoln, Jon Bernthal, Laurie Holden, Jeffrey DeMunn, Scott Wilson, Emily Kinney, Sarah Wayne Callies, Steven Yeun, Chandler Riggs, Norman Reedus, Iron E. Singleton, Madison Lintz, Danai Gurira, Melissa Suzanne McBride, Michael Rooker, Lauren Cohan, Vincent M. Ward, Chad L. Coleman, Brighton Sharbino, Kyla Kenedy »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Worldwide Box Office Crosses $700M

16 October 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After salvaging a summer full of box office flops, Marvel's Phase Two adventure Guardians of the Galaxy has passed the $700 million milestone at the global box office to become the true winner of the season.

Guardians of the Galaxy opened with a record debut in China last weekend, taking in an October-best $29.3 million, which helped put the superhero ensemble at $705.1 million worldwide ($326.7 million domestic, $378.4 million international). The opening weekend tally in China was the third biggest ever in the country, following Iron Man 3 and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Guardians of the Galaxy is just the fourth Marvel movie to crack $700 million worldwide, following this year's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Iron Man 3 and Marvel's The Avengers. It is also the first Marvel adventure to crack that milestone as the first movie in a series, which doesn't feature previously-established characters.

Guardians of the Galaxy has earned the most internationally in the U. »

Thanks to its strong performance in China, Marvel’s space opera Guardians of the Galaxy has now passed the $700 million mark at the global box-office, with the Phase Two film currently just shy of The Amazing Spider-Man 2’s haul of $707.9 million with $705.1 million to date. It looks certain now that Guardians will overtake Spider-Man and fellow McU release Captain America: The Winter Soldier ($713.9 million), while X-Men: Days of Future Past’s $747.9 million is still a possibility. Either way it’s a superb result for Marvel and its “risky” little-known property…

Guardians of the Galaxy renamed to “Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team” in China

8 October 2014 2:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s not unusual for China or other Asian countries to change the names of popular movies and, more often than not, they end up being funnier or more apt than the original English titles. It was announced by James Gunn via Twitter that Guardians of the Galaxy is no exception to the rule and has been renamed Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team for its Chinese release.

Here’s the tweet:

星際異攻隊 – that is, Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team -opens Friday in China! pic.twitter.com/9XpSoxqrAU

James Gunn (@JamesGunn) October 6, 2014

However, some have noted over at Reddit that this could actually be the Taiwanese title and the poster in Gunn’s tweet is using traditional Chinese letters rather than simplified ones, which is a big deal when it comes to translation. Should that be the case, the title is actually Interstellar Special Ability Team or Interstellar Different Commandos. Both of which »

Ant-Man Just Added A Home Run-Character Actor

6 October 2014 2:41 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Character actors have become an integral part to the success of any modern-day blockbuster. Would The Dark Knight have truly blossomed without Michael Caine or Morgan Freeman? What about Guardians of the Galaxy without John C. Reilly, Michael Rooker or Benico Del Toro? While each of these actors weren.t integral to their film.s action scenes or special effects, their acting pedigree helped to add more depth to the lead characters, which allowed audiences to resonate with them more. Ant-Man has now added Martin Donovan to its already stellar ensemble to prove that they are clearly trying to emulate the sturdy superhero casting model of recent years. Donovan has been a television stalwart for a number of years, with his most famous portrayal coming on Showtime.s Weeds, where he played Peter Scottson opposite Mary-Louis Parker.s Nancy Botwin. Donovan has also collaborated with director Hal Hartley on a »

Guardians of the Galaxy overtakes Thor: The Dark World to become Marvel’s fourth-highest grossing movie worldwide

4 October 2014 3:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last weekend Guardians of the Galaxy overtook the domestic box office take of 2008’s Iron Man ($318.3 million) – not to mention fellow franchise starters Transformers ($319.1 million) and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone ($317.6 million) and The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring ($314.2 million) – and now the film has climbed above Thor: The Dark World globally to become the fourth-biggest earner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Guardians is currently sitting on $645.4 million worldwide, and with the film due to open in China next weekend, it surely has a good chance of reaching the $714.1 million laid down by Captain America: The Winter Soldier earlier in the year.
