James Gunn opens up about directing Guardians of the Galaxy

2 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel’s latest blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy is almost upon us and it’s safe to say that it may have become one of the most anticipated movies of the year. Despite Star-Lord and his band of misfits originally being fairly obscure characters in the Marvel Universe, once the first trailer dropped everybody and their grandmother was hyped for this flick, which has since been dubbed the Marvel “pulp space opera”. None of this would’ve been possible without James Gunn. Speaking exclusively to IGN, Gunn opened up about what it was like directing a movie for Marvel.

“When Marvel came to me and pitched the idea…at first I thought, this is kinda a strange idea…and then as I was driving home it just sorta hit me that this was my opportunity to do the movie that I’ve always wanted to do.”

Gunn then went on »

Opening Friday in North America on 4,080 screens — the widest-ever August release — Guardians of the Galaxy" arrives to critical acclaim, with a 93-percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It also premieres this weekend in the United Kingdom, Russia, Mexico and Brazil, and has been “tentatively approved for Chinese distribution (although a date hasn’t been announced). Conservative estimates have "Guardians" grossing $65 million in its first weekend at the North American box office, but some industry watchers predict the film could pull closer to $70 million, which would make it the best August opening of all time. "The Bourne Ultimatum" now holds the record with $69.2 million. »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Review

5 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Infinite thanks to whoever realized James Gunn was one of the only filmmakers certifiably insane enough to make Guardians Of The Galaxy work – and I mean that as the highest compliment. Gunn was raised learning the art of schlock from Troma’s elite, taking those teachings to the next level on his cult classic creature feature Slither, which then lead to Gunn creating one of the most underrated “superhero” movies of the decade in Super. With every film you could tell Gunn’s confidence was snowballing, along with a brazenly psychotic voice blending über-violence with surprisingly dignified storytelling, yet some nonbelievers scoffed at the B-Movie veteran’s overseeing of Marvel’s most zany assembling of heroes. Me? Oh, I rejoiced for days, knowing Marvel picked the perfect creative mind to bring a talking raccoon and lumbering plant creature to life – and Gunn delivered even beyond My wildest dreams.

Guardians of the Galaxy is shaping up to be one of the biggest movies this summer, and with anticipation growing by the day, we have a brand new clip featuring Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana). A child of the 80s, before he was taken from Earth by Yondu (Michael Rooker), Star-Lord makes a number of 80s references throughout the movie, including this scene where he tries to coerce Gamora into dancing with him. When she reveals that she is a warrior and an assassin who does not dance, Star-Lord tells her the legend of Kevin Bacon's Footloose, although this seduction technique does not go as smoothly as planned.

In addition, John C. Reilly brought another "clip" to the Late Show with David Letterman, although it isn't quite what you might expect. We also have two more set photos from director James Gunn's Instagram account, one with »
