Hollywood Records and Marvel are releasing three albums from Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy on Tuesday, July 29.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Deluxe soundtrack features classic 1970s songs from the film, plus score by composer Tyler Bates (“Watchmen,” “Slither,” “Dawn of the Dead”). Music plays a major role in Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy as the great songs featured in the film are part of the storyline in a unique way.
Explaining how the songs come to play in the story, director James Gunn says, “One of the main story points in the movie is that Quill has this compilation tape [Awesome Mix #1] that he got from his mother before she died that she made for him. It was of songs that she loved, all songs from the 1970s, and that’s the only thing he has left of his mother and that’s the only thing he has left of his home on Earth. »

Guardians Of The Galaxy comes to cinemas on Thursday and despite that is yet to be released, a sequel is already in the works. This may have something to do with the brilliant critic reaction; we at Thn have fallen in love with the film over the last few months and weren’t disappointed when we saw the film last week (see our review).
In preparation for the release we were invited to attend the press conference at the rather swish Corinthia Hotel. Having been completely smitten by the film we couldn’t say no, and spent thirty minutes in a room with director James Gunn, Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista) , and Nebula (Karen Gillan), as they answered a whole heap of press questions.

The announcements continue to pour out of Marvel’s Hall H Comic-Con panel, as a Guardians of the Galaxy sequel has just been confirmed for the summer of 2017.
James Gunn and Chris Pratt revealed via video that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 has been greenlit and set for a July 28th, 2017 release. The confirmation comes just one day after strong rumblings surfaced that Marvel Studios had tapped James Gunn to write and direct a sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy, which hits theaters on August 1st. There’s no word yet on whether or not Nicole Perlman, who co-wrote the Guardians of the Galaxy script with Gunn, based on the comic book series by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, will return for the sequel. Gunn is no stranger to horror fans, as he wrote the 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake and was the writer and director of the 2006 cult hit, Slither. »

Guardians of the Galaxy, 2014.
Directed by James Gunn.
Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Glenn Close, John C. Reilly, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Peter Serafinowicz and featuring the voice talents of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.
In the far reaches of space, an American pilot named Peter Quill finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan.
Dubbed as Marvel’s riskiest venture yet in their sprawling, ever-expanding universe, Guardians of the Galaxy are not the household names that messrrs Iron Man, Captain America and Thor are. In fact, there are many who didn’t even know that this band of misfits existed at all, buried deep beneath The Dark World’s, Winter Soldier’s and terrorists named after fruit. Once Guardians has swept you up into its dizzying spell, you’ll »

Though Guardians of the Galaxy hasn’t officially come out yet, Marvel Studios must have really enjoyed what co-writer/director James Gunn did with the project, as they are looking to bring him back to write and direct the recently revealed Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
Variety reports via The Wrap that Marvel Studios has tapped James Gunn to write and direct a sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy, which hits theaters on August 1st. There’s no word yet on whether or not Nicole Perlman, who co-wrote the Guardians of the Galaxy script with Gunn, based on the comic book series by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, will return for the sequel. Gunn is no stranger to horror fans, as he wrote the 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake and was the writer and director of the 2006 cult hit, Slither.
Expect more details to be revealed at Marvel’s Comic-Con panel tomorrow. »

I've had several people ask me now if I think "Guardians Of The Galaxy" is the best of the Marvel movies so far. That's a hard question to answer, because I think there are many different things that I look for in a film, and none of the Marvel movies scratch the exact same itch. What's safe to say is that "Guardians Of The Galaxy" is the most charming Marvel movie so far. The primary ensemble (Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel) is perhaps the most winning group of characters they've introduced in any of these movies so far, and while it's hard to figure out their dynamic when you just read their names together or even in clips, by the end of the film, this is a family that I would happily follow through any number of movies. I'm not sure I've ever seen »

Take the Dirty Dozen, subtract the Magnificent Seven, and you'll roughly get the membership of “Guardians of the Galaxy,” a surprisingly winning space-faring adventure with a group of Marvel Comics characters led by Chris Pratt in a breakout action-lead performance. Taking place in the far-flung outer-space territories of the shared universe created in the Marvel Studios movies (“The Avengers,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” et. al.), “Guardians of the Galaxy” takes a B-team of lesser-known comic-book heroes — no familiar faces like Thor, Wolverine or Iron Man here — and, thanks to director and co-writer James Gunn (“Slither,” “Super”), wrings »

When Marvel announced that "Slither" and "Super" director James Gunn would direct "Guardians Of The Galaxy," it was a surprising choice. Gunn was a filmmaker who preferred to deconstruct genres rather than play into the usual tropes, but it turns out that was exactly the kid of spirit Kevin Feige wants for the space adventure. "There were scenes in his early draft...the scene that closed out the 17-minute [IMAX preview], when Peter Quill says ‘I have a plan…’ That scene was in an early draft. And that scene goes on. Just the five of them, sitting in the circle you see, for eight minutes just talking and bantering back-and-forth. And it’s awesome. It’s great," Feige told IGN. "My recollection is that in one of the early drafts we said ‘This scene is awesome—the whole movie should feel like this scene.’ And he went ‘Oh great, I was nervous about that scene. »

Michael Rooker has been in just about everything in his 28 year career, from Eight Men Out and Mississippi Burning to Slither and The Walking Dead, plus guest roles on basically every TV show to hit the air. Next weekend you can watch him re-team with director James Gunn for Guardians of the Galaxy, in which he plays Yondu, the menacing leader of the Ravagers and hero Peter Quill’s sort of adoptive father. Rooker looks almost as intimidating in person as he does on screen. With his shaved head, manicured facial hair, filigree silver cross, black t-shirt, and jeans, he could easily be a member of a biker gang. But get him talking and he is like an Adhd kid on a sugar high. He is friendly and laughs frequently. I sat down with him to talk about Yondu’s arrow, the strange bodies populating the galaxy, and The Merle and Daryl Show, »

Kevin Feige should be riddled with doubt.
Each time the president of Marvel Studios has greenlit a movie, he’s been barraged by skeptics. “Iron Man” was considered too obscure. “Captain America” too American. And “Thor” too much of a fantasy figure.
With each movie costing in the neighborhood of $200 million to produce, these questions are certainly warranted. But so far Feige has proved his critics wrong, launching some of Hollywood’s biggest franchises: The nine films Marvel Studios has made since 2008’s “Iron Man” have collectively earned more than $6.4 billion at the worldwide box office.
Now comes the 10th, “Guardians of the Galaxy,” debuting Aug. 1 — along with even more raised eyebrows.
The space-set actioner, which will be promoted at this week’s San Diego Comic-Con, revolves around a ragtag group of otherworldly misfits on the run after stealing an orb whose power threatens the cosmos. It stars Chris Pratt, »

That Marvel has put all of its future Cosmic film adaptation eggs into one basket – Guardians of the Galaxy – is a pressure-filled scenario. Never mind the studio, what about the man who’s been handed the proverbial keys to this potential Marvel movie castle? No added stress there, right? Surprisingly enough, Guardians director and writer James Gunn (Slither, Super) doesn’t seem fazed at all about collective high expectations, whether studio or fan-driven. Gunn’s main concerns are character-driven and that’s what we’d hope from a director who “gets it.”
We had the pleasure of sitting down with Gunn to discuss his potential blockbuster and spoke mainly about which Guardians he wants to put in the sequel, his hopes for increasing the number of leading ladies in Marvel movies, if/when he’ll get to make Thunderbolts, and ...

Though director James Gunn is pretty adamant that Guardians of the Galaxy won't team-up with The Incredible Hulk in any future films, that's no reason to not be excited for the cosmic team's debut on the big screen next month. In fact, the buzz from the footage screened for fans earlier this month and some advances screenings has been very positive, and to keep the hype going, Gunn talks about how great it will be to see this Marvel film on an IMAX screen. It's been crafted specifically for the giant screen with shifting aspect ratios, and the director previously promised a unique experience from the traditional theater. Watch! Here's the IMAX featurette for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy from Marvel: Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). Brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, »

When Edgar Wright left Ant-Man, a lot of excitement for the film went out the door with him. His involvement is what made the project so appealing in the first place. Scott Pilgrim vs. the World showed the director isn’t interested in making a run-of-the-mill comic book movie, but doing something fresh, new, and its own thing. Of course, that’s not the kind of comic book movie we see often enough. Since Wright left Ant-Man over creative differences, was it a matter of Marvel balking over taking some risks? That’s what a lot of fans understandably suspect. After seeing James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy, it’s difficult to fathom Marvel getting cold feet over taking another risk. Guardians of the Galaxy is a superhero movie with a talking raccoon, some good old-fashioned dick jokes, and, basically, more of what you’d expect from James Gunn (Slither). Guardians doesn’t feel like a »

Guardians of the Galaxy blasts into theaters in about two weeks, and over the weekend the cast spoke to the press about the superhero space action adventure comedy (is that enough genres for you?). Director James Gunn joined Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, and Benicio Del Toro to answer questions about the way they approached the movie.
Gunn is known for his less conventional movies Slither and Super (maybe he should have renamed this movie Saviors), which aren’t movies that could have come out of the Marvel movie machine. Luckily, the Guardians of the Galaxy don’t really seem like anything that would come out of the Marvel movie machine either. But did he find the unconventional heroes daunting?
“It was, frankly, liberating. I think I would have had a harder time trying to fit into the regular Marvel scheme of things and this »

Since the credits teaser at the end of Thor: The Dark World featured Benicio del Toro as The Collector, it almost seems like we've gone full circle since the character now gets his own poster for next month's release of Guardians of the Galaxy. This should be the final character poster following other supporting characters like John C. Reilly and Glenn Close from Nova Corps and the trio of bad guys led by Ronan (Lee Pace) also got their own character posters, but with Marvel anything is possible. It would take someone like The Collector to round up all the Marvel character posters that get release with every new film. Look below! Here's The Collector character poster for Guardians of the Galaxy from Imp Awards: Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). Brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after »

If you kept watching into the credits of Thor: The Dark World, then this is a face you’re going to recognise. Benicio del Toro is back as The Collector in just a matter of days, and everyone’s looking forward to seeing how big a role he plays in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Marvel has been doing a great job of gearing up ahead of the film’s release, which comes very soon after Comic-Con next week, and following the recent teasers of character posters and the first clip, the studio has finally launched a poster fronted by del Toro’s Taneleer Tivan, a.k.a. The Collector.
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and The Avengers, comes a new team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy »

Just yesterday, Michael Rooker got his own Guardians of the Galaxy character poster as the blue-skinned character Yondu. Shortly after, John C. Reilly and Glenn Close saw their characters from Nova Corps get the same treatment. And today, it's a trio of bad guys who each get their own character poster. There's Lee Pace as the main villain Ronan (who is being puppeted by Thanos), Karen Gillan as Nebula (who is a descendant of Thanos) and Djimon Housou as Korath (who we've seen dealing with Star-Lord in the trailers). That should be it for character posters, unless Thanos ends up getting his own sheet. Look! Here's the three new character posters for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy from IGN: Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). Brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, »

This is my tenth year attending the Fantasia Film Festival, though it is my first with a press pass. Gone are the days where I pay for tickets and try to snatch interview subjects for a blog no one really reads. This year’s line-up will certainly be keeping me busy. Here are five to which I’m particularly looking forward.
Welcome to New York
Directed by Abel Ferrara
Ferrara’s work almost always comes with the pre-requisite of controversy, and here we find him back in his own personal playground: New York City. Granted, it’s been some time since the likes of Bad Lieutenant, and the city itself has changed a great deal from Koch to Giuliani environs. It has also been home to the unspeakable financial crimes of the past decade, which makes New York all the more interesting »

Not too long ago, an image teased the silhouette of Michael Rooker as Yondu, an important character from the comic books on which the forthcoming Marvel Studios film Guardians of the Galaxy is based. Keen eyes might have noticed a quick shot of the blue-skinned character in the extended trailer that debuted last week, but now everyone can get a really good look at the character since director James Gunn has just revealed a new character poster featuring the man himself holding an artifact that we've seen Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) handling in pretty much all the trailers. Does it have something to do with the Infinity Stones? Here's Michael Rooker's character poster for Guardians of the Galaxy (via James Gunn): John C. Reilly and Glenn Close also get their own Nova Corps posters too (via Imp Awards): Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, »

Marvel is definitely showing confidence in Guardians of the Galaxy as I'll be screening it here in Seattle more than a week before its release date. Typically markets outside of New York and Los Angeles have to wait until at least the week of release for their press screenings so this is a good sign. With that out of the way, today we have two new extended TV spots for the upcoming movie along with a new character poster featuring Michael Rooker as Yondu, who apparently is a big deal considering they saved his big reveal for last and have now become rather focused on his character... though that could also have something to do with his history with director James Gunn after the two of them made the entertaining "slugs from space" movie Slither. Either way, check out the trailers and poster below and look for Guardians of the Galaxy »
