Early concept art of Jason Momoa as Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy

1 hour ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Before Dave Bautista took on the role of Drax the Destroyer in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, former Game of Thrones star – and potential future Aquaman – Jason Momoa was in talks for the part, although negotiations ultimately broke down. Still, thanks to concept artist Andy Park, we now have an idea of how Momoa could have looked as the Destroyer…

Guardians of the Galaxy overtakes Captain America: The Winter Soldier to become the highest-grossing domestic movie of 2014

30 August 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having crossed the $500 million mark earlier in the week, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has now overtaken Captain America: The Winter Soldier to become the highest-grossing release of 2014 in North America. Guardians is projected to finish the Labor Day weekend with around $277 million in total, and is expected to fend off competition from The November Man and As Above, So Below to retain top spot over the four-day weekend.

It is also pretty much assured that the space opera will become the first movie to hit $300 million domestically, providing a shot in the arm to the North American box office, which has suffered its worst summer since 2006, with ticket sales down 15% from last year.

‘Seventh Son’ Trailer #2 & Poster: Fight the Darkness

28 August 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Remember Seventh Son? The next big-budget genre movie from Legendary Pictures (Pacific Rim, Godzilla) was, at one point, scheduled to open in theaters in February 2013; it’s now slated to arrive on the scene two years later than that. Admittedly, that not all the fault of the filmmakers behind the fantasy/adventure, as it got caught up in the divorce between Legendary and Warner Bros. back in 2013 – resulting in the movie eventually being scooted away to an early 2015 launch.

A second theatrical trailer for Seventh Son has dropped at last (see above); it contains a healthy amount of new footage that’s heavy on CGI supernatural beasts, but doesn’t exactly do much to distinguish this movie’s hero’s journey storyline from countless ones that’ve come before. The film’s script was penned by Charles Leavitt (Blood Diamond) and Steve Knight (Locke, Click to continue reading ‘Seventh Son »

This dramatic war thriller follows soldier Jack Farmer (Luke Moran) from small town America to Iraq’s most infamous prison, Abu Ghraib, where he’s tasked with guarding the Army’s highest priority detainees.

War. What is it good for? Well seemingly it’s good for churning out war film after war film. Some bad. Some good. Thankfully Prisoner of War falls into the latter camp. Produced by the same people behind Traffic and Blood Diamond, the films is loosely based »

James Gunn on Peter Quill’s father and using Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy 2

13 August 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Guardians of the Galaxy currently tearing up the global box office, director James Gunn is already hard at work developing the sequel to the space opera, which has been confirmed as hitting cinemas as part of Marvel’s Phase Three on July 28th 2017. Speaking to Empire, Gunn has offered up a few thoughts on where Guardians of the Galaxy 2 may go, beginning with Peter Quill’s (Chris Pratt) parentage:

“There have been a lot of documents passed around about who Peter Quill’s father is between a select two or three of us. That’s been part of the plan since the beginning, that’s something I had to work out before we shot the screenplay. We wanted to make sure Yondu’s place in everything made sense and it does, so it’s all very specific stuff… It’s definitely not the character who it is in the comics, »

Check out James Gunn’s birthday present from Marvel

11 August 2014 2:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Better watch out Avengers, it looks like Thanos isn’t the only guy in the Universe with an Infinity Gem!

It was James Gunn’s 44th birthday last week and the Guardians of the Galaxy director posted an image on his Instagram of the present that Marvel got him- the Infinity Gem that Thanos wanted in the movie, complete with Peter Quill’s line of, “that was a pretty good plan”.

See the present below:

Marvel have been dropping the Infinity Gems into their movies since Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which also played a large role in 2012′s The Avengers. Since then we had The Aether appear in Thor: The Dark World and The Orb in Guardians of the Galaxy. At San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced that Josh Brolin would appear as Thanos in Avengers: Age of Ultron and it was teased he would be the main villain »

Guardians of the Galaxy blasts past $300 million at the box office

10 August 2014 12:43 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Those who expected that audiences wouldn’t respond well to James Gunn’s wacky space opera Guardians of the Galaxy were very, very wrong, as the film not only broke August box office records on opening weekend, but continues to have legs in week two. It may have come second to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles this weekend, taking a 56% drop in ticket sales, but it still managed to bring in $81.6 million worldwide, blasting right past $300 million.

In just ten days, Guardians has nearly surpassed the lifetime grosses of its Marvel brethren Thor ($175 million) and Captain America: The First Avenger ($176 million) domestically. It will likely pass their worldwide grosses before too long, as The First Avenger grossed $370 million in its run, while Thor finished with $449 million. The movie hasn’t even come out yet in some moneymaking foreign markets; it hits China on October 10th and Japan on September 13th.
