Chris Pratt Confirms Filming Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Is Just as Fun as You Thought It Would Be

3 February 2016 9:40 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Although we already had an inkling that the set of Guardians of the Galaxy is pretty much the most hilarious place to be, Zoe Saldana confirmed it once and for all by posting an adorable shot of her laughing alongside director Sean Gunn and costars Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista. Gunn also captured a few great peeks of the cast checking out their scripts during rehearsals for the film's highly anticipated sequel, but it's Pratt who truly hammered home the feelings of deep, burning, incurable jealousy that you too aren't in the movie. He uploaded an Instagram photo of Peter Quill's beloved Walkman with a hysterical, long-winded caption that he's becoming known for. Feels good to be back in action on Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2!!! I can't even tell you how excited I am. Ok I'll try. I'm ecstatic. I'm bursting with joy. I'm overwhelmed by feelings of enthusiasm, »

2 February 2016 3:15 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, we showed you the first photos from the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, shared by writer-director James Gunn himself. The photos feature the director rehearsing with stars Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista and the director's brother Sean Gunn, who plays the on-set version of Rocket Raccoon. Chris Pratt also took to his Instagram page earlier today, to showcase his now-iconic Sony Walkman, which has the cassette tape of Awesome Mix Vol. 2. Here's what the actor had to say to his social media followers, revealing how "ecstatic" he is to be back on set.

"Feels good to be back in action on Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2!!! I can't even tell you how excited I am. Ok I'll try. I'm ecstatic. I'm bursting with joy. I'm overwhelmed by feelings of enthusiasm, joy, gratitude, conviviality, camaraderie, elation, exhilaration. I just used an online thesaurus for these words. »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 adds Steve Agee

2 February 2016 1:34 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Steve Agee has been added to the cast of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, according to a recent episode of Doug Loves Movies.

During the February 1st episode of the podcast, host Doug Benson was talking to guest Scoot McNairy (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), who he originally had gotten in contact with thanks to Agee, a mutual friend of theirs. When explaining why Agee wasn’t able to be on the show, Benson said, “… [Steve] just found out because he’s in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, he has to shoot that bullshit instead of being here with us today.”

Before 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy was released, Agee was rumored to be in the cast of the film, but director James Gunn eventually cleared things up and confirmed that he would not appear. Obviously, the two friends will now be working together on the sequel. »

Though nobody is in costume just yet, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn has posted a couple of behind-the-scenes snaps from the Marvel sequel’s rehearsal room.

Above you can get a look at Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Chris Pratt (Star Lord), Dave Bautista (Drax), Gunn himself and finally, his brother Sean Gunn, who is standing in for Rocket while Bradley Cooper will once again provide the volatile Racoon’s voice in the actual movie.

The advancement and sophistication of computers has made realistic computer generated effects a mainstay in both big-budget and small-budget films. The internet and streaming technologies have given big Hollywood new competition in films produced independently and by non-traditional means. We went from purchasing films on yards of tape to plastic disks, and now we can simply upload them to the cloud. Advertisements for films have reached a higher, more ruthless level where generating hype through trailers and teasers is crucial for a film’s commercial success. Movie attendance has fluctuated along with the economy, but that hasn »
