While we saw a small portion of the Nebula (Karen Gillan) vs. Gamora (Zoe Saldana) fight scene from Guardians of the Galaxy in a brief character featurette last month, actress Karen Gillan shed more light on the "big girlie fight sequence" in a new interview, where she also discusses the level of humor in this Marvel Phase Two adventure and shooting with Zoe Saldana.
During an interview for her new movie Oculus at SXSW 2014, Karen Gillan revealed that this fight sequence isn't very "girlie" at all, while discussing how much training she had to undergo and commenting on the importance of this pivotal moment for her character.
"Yeah, there's a big girlie fight sequence, but it's not that girlie. They made sure there weren't any nice pirouettes or anything like that. She's really experienced in the physical stuff, she was a ballerina. She's (Zoe) really amazing at all of that stuff. »
A pungent reek of testosterone stinks up this high-toned apologetic for vigilantism and revenge. Still: great performances! I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): the trailer looked like the film was treading well-worn ground
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
First scene: Woody Harrelson rape-ily shoves a hot dog down a woman’s throat, and then beats up a guy who points out that, hey, buddy, not cool. Woody (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) is the villain, so this is “okay,” but that’s the sort of movie you’re in for here. The pungent reek of testosterone off screen is deafening. Oh, is that a mixed metaphor? Kinda like the title of the film: out of the furnace… and, what? into the frying pan?

Not only does Marvel Studios' upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy have the distinction of starring a talking raccoon and a sentient tree, but it also features something else none of the other Marvel films have had, a female villain. While there was a female cohort in Iron Man 3 , Guardians of the Galaxy will bring us Nebula as played by "Doctor Who" star Karen Gillan and her character will apparently have a very intense fight sequence with the female hero of the film, Gamora, as played by Zoe Saldana. "Yeah, there's a big girlie fight sequence, but it's not that girlie," Gillan said in an interview with MTV . "They made sure there weren't any nice pirouettes or anything like »
Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto are only adding fuel to the rumors that they are dating. They just posted a set of selfies of themselves hanging out together in Paris with the caption: “Winners in Paris/Paris in winners.” [Eonline] Andi Dorfman is going to be the next Bachelorette. Even though she didn’t find love with Juan Pablo on The Bachelor, she’s hopeful she will on her own show. [People] Critics have pointed out that Mindy Kaling is the only minority on her show, and Mindy Kaling fired back at SXSW by saying, “I’m a f*cking Indian woman who has her own f*cking show.” Kaling is offended that white male showrunners aren’t asked the same questions. »

The Guardians Of The Galaxy are – shockingly – not a household name for a group that seem to have prominence over, well, the entire galaxy. Yet. If Marvel’s plans go as well as they hope, they soon will be. It’ll take a little bit more convincing to lure the uninitiated to the cinema to see Marvel’s summer blockbuster this year, or rather, those that aren’t usually pulled in by the ‘Marvel’ sticker placed before the superheroic space-opera.
However, Marvel’s head honcho Kevin Feige, director James Gunn and the protagonist of the film, Chris Pratt took some time out of their busy schedules this weekend to sit down and have a discussion explaining why you should see Guardians Of The Galaxy in just a few months time (if not for the whole… y’know, following the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity!)

2014 has been an unexpectedly strong year for the work of late author Ira Levin. In addition to NBC’s planned miniseries adaptation of his iconic chiller Rosemary’s Baby, which will star Zoe Saldana and hew much more closely to Levin’s novel than the Roman Polanski film, TWC-Dimension is steadily moving forward with an adaptation of his creepy play Veronica’s Room, which now has The Wolverine writer Mark Bomback on board to pen the script.
In Veronica’s Room, college students Susan and Larry are drawn to a creepy New England mansion, where Susan is told that she bears a striking resemblance to the sole inhabitant’s long-dead sister. When the pair are asked by the caretakers to stay with the inhabitant, an old woman suffering from dementia, until she passes away, they reluctantly agree. However, the seemingly merciful errand takes a dark turn as Susan and Larry »

Out of the Furnace hits on Blu-Ray March 11th, and I’ve got a copy available for you to win. With all the hype surrounding awards season, and Christian Bale’s other film, American Hustle, his earlier release hasn’t received a lot of attention recently. Because it hits so close to the Academy Awards show, I wanted to make sure it doesn’t slip by unnoticed.
We didn’t give it the best rating when we reviewed this one on the podcast, but it has a lot that makes it worth watching. Mainly, Bale’s acting, but the rest of the cast does a solid job as well. You may already know that I’m a big fan of Bale’s, and this is a film that really offers up good reason to be. Even in a film that didn’t blow me away, he is still impressive to watch. »

Bradley Cooper is still dating blonde girlfriend Suki Waterhouse and it may be getting serious, the actor is looking to get Suki to move in with him. Bradley recently admitted that his girlfriend is ''the one'' and he now wants her to consider moving in with him in California, but the 22-year-old British model is reluctant because of how well she's doing in the UK. A source said: ''Suki's career is flying in London. She's one of the hottest people on the London fashion scene and doesn't want to lose momentum. ''But Bradley is keen for them to live closer together, and has his home and production company, 22, in La. He's trying to tempt her to move so they won't have to fly around the world to see each other.'' The 39-year-old actor - who has previously dated actresses Zoe Saldana and Renée Zellweger and was married to Jennifer Esposito »
The film will chronicle the life and career of Kitt, an actress, dancer, and singer whose successful music and acting career began in the 1950s.
According to The Telegram, Saldana is currently a frontrunner in negotiations for the untitled film.
Last year, Saldana took on the role of singer Nina Simone, a project that garnered criticism due to the actress having a lighter complexion than Simone.
Saldana defended her decision to join the film, which was scheduled to debut in 2013 but has yet to be released.
Before Dave Bautista was cast in the role, there were reports that Jason Momoa had emerged as Marvel's pick to play Drax the Destroyer in Guardians of the Galaxy, only for the Game of Thrones and Conan the Barbarian star to allegedly turn down the studio's offer to join the cosmic superhero ensemble. Well, speaking to Zap2It, Momoa - who has since been heavily rumoured for a part in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel sequel Batman vs. Superman - has confirmed that he did audition, and explained his reasons for passing on the movie:
"I think it's perfectly cast. Dave is perfect for that role, for Drax. It didn't really fit in my time because I've done so many things where I don't say much and I'm colored up and I have my shirt off again. I made a conscious choice to turn down some movies that were »
