James Gunn says the Thanos scene in Guardians of the Galaxy was the hardest scene to write

15 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During a chat with Vulture, James Gunn has been speaking about the challenges of bringing Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy to the screen, and in particular the scene he found most difficult to write – the one featuring the Mad Titan Thanos…

“There’s pressure with Thanos because you’re setting up this gigantic character that, in one way, isn’t really a part of your movie,” states Gunn. “His presence doesn’t really serve being in Guardians, and having Thanos be in that scene was more helpful to the Marvel Universe than it was to Guardians of the Galaxy. I always wanted to have Thanos in there, but from a structural standpoint, you don’t need him. So that’s part of it, and then part of it is the fact that you’re setting up this incredibly powerful character, but you don’t want to belittle the actual antagonist of the film, »

James Gunn says Nebula is the Boba Fett of Guardians of the Galaxy

24 November 2014 12:11 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is out on DVD and Blu-ray today, and Yahoo! Movies caught up with director James Gunn during the press tour for the home-entertainment release, with Gunn taking a moment to discuss the villainous characters of the space opera – specifically, Karen Gillen’s Nebula, calling her “the Boba Fett of the film” and seemingly implying that we’ll be seeing plenty more of her in 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

“I have so many plans for Nebula, in my personal life, and… I love Nebula. I fell in love with the design of Nebula. I cast the role around that design. I fell in love with Karen [Gillan] as a person, who I love, and I love the character of Nebula…. To me, she’s the Boba Fett of the movie, she’s the one that you really dig, she’s the cool one that we need to get more of, »

James Gunn reveals his second choice for Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy

19 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It was a movie that turned Chris Pratt into a household name and mega star, but there was a chance that he wasn’t going to play Star Lord in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Although the Parks and Recreation star did eventually take the role, Gunn has revealed who his second choice to play the part was.

“Glenn [Howerton] came along a little bit later, but there was a good chance that, if I didn’t cast Chris, that I would’ve cast Glenn Howerton in the role,” Gunn told GQ journalist Drew Magary.

If you’re unaware of that name, Glenn Howerton is one of the stars of TV’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

What do you make of this second choice? Would he have made a better or worse Star Lord than Pratt?

James Gunn explains why it’s taken so long for a Dancing Baby Groot toy

14 November 2014 10:01 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Without a shadow of a doubt, the most popular character to come out from Guardians of the Galaxy was not just Groot, but dancing Baby Groot. Appearing in the closing credits of the movie, Dancing Baby Groot shakes his little tree booty to Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back” and became a sensation over night. So much so that the demand for a toy was immense. Well we’re finally getting one, and director James Gunn has spoke out about why it took so long.

“While we were still shooting the movie, I brought up putting Dancing Baby Groot out as a toy,” Gunn told Vulture. “The reason it didn’t happen is because you have some control in the film industry over secrets getting out there, but the people you don’t have much control over are the toy people, unfortunately. Those toy designs get out, always! And »

James Gunn says Guardians of the Galaxy 2 “is not a movie that’s made to move toward Infinity War”

13 November 2014 11:29 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the upcoming Blu-ray release of Guardians of the Galaxy, it was expected that director James Gunn would give an interview or two talking about the film’s success, and the recently-announced sequel. In a chat with MTV, Gunn was asked about the Phase Three line up and if Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will lead into Avengers: Infinity War.

“I don’t feel beholden to that stuff at all,” said Gunn. “I think it’s really about the Guardians and what they are doing. We’re not subservient to the Avengers. Guardians 2 is not a movie that’s made to move toward Infinity War. It’s something that’s made to move toward future cosmic movies, so I don’t feel that that is something that affects me that much.”

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is set for release May 5th, 2017, while the first movie arrives on DVD and Blu-ray in »

How to Train Your Dragon 2 Digital Release Review

The How to Train Your Dragon franchise put together a fair stock of extended content before it even got to the sequel, and the second film, while not quite as solid as the first, avoids the usual pitfalls of sequels, and delivers all the fun and adventure viewers are after.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 opens with an introduction to the new world Hiccup’s village has become, what with dragons now a part of daily life. Before long, Hiccup gets a surprise he never would have thought possible, he meets an unknown dragon rider. This leads to some wondrous encounters, and some unnerving ones, but ultimately Hiccup learns that the mystery rider is his mother. Of course, this sets the stage for the film to follow in the footsteps of the first, shifting the undercurrent of emotional play from »

James Gunn talks about Guardians of the Galaxy 2

21 October 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the recent news that Awesome Mix Vol. 1 would be released on special edition cassette next month and Guardians of the Galaxy becoming the third highest grossing Marvel movie (as well as the highest grossing domestic release of 2014), it must be pretty good to be James Gunn right now.

But how is he celebrating the success? By writing the sequel…

“I spent all day on August 1st, the day the first movie was released, writing Guardians 2,” he told Variety. “I was so excited about it and I was finally able to let go of the last one and begin the second one. I always saw this as a universe, not just as one story.”

He also gave a scoop on what we can expect from Guardians of the Galaxy 2, “It’s going to be a really surprising open. What happens is all the characters are killed in the first 10 minutes, »

Guardians of the Galaxy is now Marvel’s third highest-grossing film

19 October 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel Studios’ space opera Guardians of the Galaxy continues to do well in China, and has now become Marvel’s third highest-grossing film behind The Avengers and Iron Man 3, surpassing this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier at the worldwide box office.

Guardians has now grossed $733 million worldwide, placing it in fourth place at the 2014 box office, behind X-Men: Days of Future Past, Maleficent and Transformers: Age of Extinction. It definitely stands a chance now of passing both Days of Future Past and Maleficent, which have grossed $746M and $757M domestically.

So much for the titular group of outlaws-turned-heroes being a “risky” bet for the studio, eh?

Guardians of the Galaxy sees Gunn directing a cast that includes Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) as Groot, »

Chris Hemsworth Stars In First Trailer for Ron Howard’s In The Heart Of The Sea

16 October 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Watch the first trailer for Ron Howard’s action adventure In The Heart Of The Sea, based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the dramatic true journey of the Essex. The film is scheduled to open on March 13, 2015 in theatres and IMAX.

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance.

The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story.

In The Heart Of The Sea reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, »
