Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Cast Interviews and Panel Video from Comic-Con

19 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In the opening moments of Marvel Studios' massive Hall H panel at Comic-Con, Kevin Feige was asked by moderator Chris Hardwick why the studio famously skipped the convention last year. The studio president and producer stated that, "We only want to come when we have a lot of stuff to show you," which set the tone for the panel that featured the first trailer for Doctor Strange, along with sneak peeks at Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok and the confirmation of Brie Larson starring in Captain Marvel. One of the biggest highlights of the panel, however, was the colorful introduction of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 stars, along with the jaw-dropping footage they presented.

Unfortunately, Marvel didn't release the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 footage quite yet, but the studio has provided us with videos featuring highlights from the panel, along with video interviews with director James Gunn »

21 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday during the Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con, the big Guardians of the Galaxy mystery about Star-Lord’s father was answered, with Marvel revealing that Ego, the Living Planet – played by Kurt Russell – is Peter Quill’s dad. The big reveal came during the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 footage screened for those in attendance [read a description here], and while the footage hasn’t been released online, we do now have a glimpse at Ego’s costume (for his humanoid form, not his usual planetary self), which is on display at the Marvel booth in Sdcc…

22 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday director James Gunn and the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 took to the stage in Hall H of the San Diego Comic-Con to showcase some footage from next year’s Marvel sequel [read a description here], as well as revealing some pretty major details about the film – not least the identity of Star-Lord’s father as Ego, the Living Planet, played by Kurt Russell. Following the panel, Gunn took to Facebook to share his thoughts in a rather lengthy post:

Whoa! So we just got off stage at the San Diego Comicon showing not one, but Three Guardians clips: 1) A piece from the film featuring Yondu, Rocket, baby Groot, and the Ravagers, 2) A behind-the-scenes featurette of me and the cast working on the forthcoming Guardians attraction at Disneyland, and 3) A special glimpse at a montage of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Movie Review – Star Trek Beyond (2016)

22 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Trek Beyond, 2016.

Directed by Justin Lin.

Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Idris Elba, Sofia Boutella, John Cho and Anton Yelchin.

Synopsis:

The USS Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a new ruthless enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.

 

To say that I was sceptical going to see the third instalment in the new Star Trek franchise is an understatement. The trailers were dull, the general marketing plan was lacklustre and news of reshoots spelled disaster. So I was happily surprised after finishing this film as I’d just sat through two enjoyable, fun hours of sci-fi action entertainment that completely surpassed my expectations.

Set 2.5 years after Into Darkness, the crew of the Enterprise are 3 years into their 5 year mission. Kirk (Pine) is doubtful of his future, Spock (Quinto) is contemplating »

Sdcc 2016 : Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2… And Why Ravagers Rule!

24 July 2016 4:02 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

James Gunn and Kevin Feige were ready to treat the Hall H audience to some fun as the closing act of the Marvel panel. Gunn came out with an incredible amount of energy… stoked to be back, and with the fans. If there is one thing that you should know about Gunn, is that he is incredibly grateful for his fans. What you see is what you get. That energy and excitement is real. How do I know? I’m lucky enough to call him a friend. This isn’t a humble brag. He deserves the praise of being an honest, kind, and humble creator. (Someone hide this from him though… Shh!)

At the start of his panel, the room was stormed by Ravagers that were there to do nothing more than heckle the crowd… as well as the panel. Sean Gunn, who has done an incredible job of wearing various hats throughout Guardians, »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Trailer and Footage Description from Comic-Con

24 July 2016 12:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier tonight, Marvel Studios held its massive Comic-Con panel in Hall H, where they revealed the first trailer for Doctor Strange and new footage from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Unfortunately, the studio hasn't released this footage online quite yet, but the scenes the cast and crew revealed not only confirmed that Sylvester Stallone is in fact part of the cast, but also revealed who Star-Lord's father is.

Deadline reports that two clips were shown to fans, along with a trailer. At the end of the trailer revealed in Hall H, Kurt Russell's mysterious character is seen coming out of a massive space pod. When Chris Pratt's Star-Lord asks who he is, this mystery character replies, "I thought my good looks would make it obvious. My name is Ego. And I'm your dad."

Kurt Russell Is Star-Lord's Dad in Guardians of the Galaxy 2

23 July 2016 10:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, star Chris Pratt wrapped production on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, announcing in a new video from the set that both he and director James Gunn would be coming to Comic-Con this year. The director went on to confirm through social media that the first footage would be shown during Marvel Studios' Hall H panel that took place tonight, and sure enough, the filmmaker is a man of his word and did indeed showcase footage from this sequel. What fans didn't expect is that this footage confirmed a long-running rumor, that Kurt Russell is in fact portraying Star-Lord's (Chris Pratt) father, Ego.

Entertainment Weekly reveals that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige introduced James Gunn, who called the Hall H crowd, "the petri dish where Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 was born!" His speech was interrupted by The Ravagers, lead by Taserface (Chris Sullivan), who continually mocked »

'Beyond': 'Most Satisfying' Among Rebooted 'Star Trek' Movies, But Gay Sulu a Dramatic Miscalculation

23 July 2016 9:03 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Star Trek Beyond' with Chris Pine as Captain Kirk: Will movie franchise reboot achieve 'escape velocity'? 'Star Trek Beyond' Review: Movie franchise needs to boldly go where J.J. Abrams has never gone before We're never told what “beyond” refers to in Star Trek Beyond, the 13th film in the venerated sci-fi series. But here's a theory: if the franchise is to regain its footing after the tepid returns of Star Trek Into Darkness, it will have to move beyond J.J. Abrams, the writer/director who used his brand of copycat magic to relaunch the series in 2009. In our reboot era, he's got the canny ability to provide older audiences with enough familiarity to keep them under the tent while giving new audiences enough youthful verve so they don't feel the franchise isn't for them. If you think that's not worth something, see Star Wars: The Force Awakens, »

Marvel Studios brings the magic

23 July 2016 10:14 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Kevin Feige presided over a boisterous Marvel Studios panel that brought new trailers from Doctor Strange and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2, as well as footage from the sets of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok.

At San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, Marvel studio president Kevin Feige unveiled a new company logo and introduced Chadwick Boseman and his fellow Black Panther cast members alongside director Ryan Coogler ahead of an early 2017 production start.

While that project is expected to strike a blow for diversity at a point in modern history that could not seem timelier, Marvel referenced another welcome development when Feige brought its Captain Marvel star Brie Larson on to the stage for a group shot.

That was the final act of the presentation and nothing more was revealed about Marvel’s first female-led superhero adaptation, which will open in theatres on March 8, 2019. Warner Bros has stolen a march in the gender wars, however, and will »

Everything You'll Want to Know About the Actress Who Plays Jaylah in Star Trek Beyond

22 July 2016 1:00 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Star Trek Beyond, the latest installment in the classic franchise, features its all-stars Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto back in action as Captain Kirk and Spock in another adventure that's the level of fun you'd expect from the series. The usual gang is back together in the third movie, including Simon Pegg, John Cho, Zoe Saldana, and the late Anton Yelchin, this time facing off with Krall, an intergalactic villain played by Idris Elba. As much as a delight as it is to see Elba on screen, it's another newcomer to the Star Trek universe who really steals the movie. Sofia Boutella plays Jaylah, a badass alien stranded on Krall's planet. Not only does she have the coolest look in the movie, but she's also the film's most dynamic character, who shows extremes of emotional range and tons of charm with what seems like it was supposed to be a sub-supporting role. »

J.J. Abrams says Star Trek 4 is his “favourite Star Trek story that we’ve had”

22 July 2016 12:53 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Trek Beyond may have just opened in cinemas [read our reviews here and here], but producer J.J. Abrams is already talking up the next instalment, which Paramount officially announced last week.

Star Trek 4 will see Chris Pine’s James T. Kirk coming face-to-face with his father George Kirk, with Chris Pine reprising his role from the 2009 reboot, and Abrams has told EW that the plot for the fourth movie is his “favourite Star Trek story that we’ve had.”

“One of the reasons that I’m hoping [Star Trek Beyond] does well is so that we can, without question, get that movie made. It really is an amazing story. It’s really the reason we made the deal with Chris Hemsworth as soon as we could because we really wanted that story to be told, so fingers crossed.”

Second Opinion – Star Trek Beyond (2016)

22 July 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Trek Beyond, 2016.

Directed by Justin Lin.

Starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Anton Yelchin, Idris Elba, and Sofia Boutella

Synopsis:

The USS Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a new ruthless enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.

Star Trek Beyond is one of those movies where all of the marketing and promotional material should just be used to wipe asses. Changing directors from J.J. Abrams to Justin Lin isn’t necessarily a drop in leadership quality, but given that Lin is going from absolutely mindless Fast and Furious vehicular carnage action flicks to the next installment of one of the most popular science fiction franchises of all time, it wouldn’t be wrong to expect a different kind of Star Trek, especially judging from the misleading trailers.

Exclusive Interview: Karl Urban Talks Star Trek Beyond

22 July 2016 9:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The action-packed Star Trek Beyond, the third installment in the new franchise, finally got it right. The 2009 Star Trek rebooted the original series by introducing those iconic sci-fi characters – Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto), Bones (Karl Urban), Scotty (Simon Pegg), Uhura (Zoe Saldana), Chekov (Anton Yelchin) and Sulu (John Cho) – as young upstarts joining Starfleet Command, and then cleverly skewed the timeline to create an alternate universe from the original. The 2013 follow-up, Star Trek Into Darkness, seemed to bite off more than it could chew though, with an overly convoluted plot and unnecessary throwbacks, particularly in the way they brought back Khan.

Now, with Star Trek Beyond, they’ve worked out the kinks and have delivered a solid film that is, to date, most closely attuned to the beloved 1960s series. Under the guidance of director Justin Lin (who takes over the reins from J.J. Abrams), and armed with »
