We saw a Guardians of the Galaxy Mondo poster for Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) yesterday [see here], and now it’s the turn of Drax the Destroyer, played by WWE superstar Dave Bautista

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” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter »

James Gunn to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 2

25 July 2014 4:46 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Marvel expected to announce its Phase Three plans at Comic-Con tomorrow, it seems we may be getting to see more of the Guardians of the Galaxy after the release of next week’s superhero space opera, with screenwriter Nicole Perlman telling The Wrap that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is happening, with James Gunn returning to direct.

“[Marvel] started to figure it out pretty quick when they started getting the reactions from the audience; it was a very positive reaction. Of course they would want to make a sequel as long as it does well and people are excited about it, they’ll wanna do a sequel. So it’s going to happen. James will be directing Guardians 2, so he would also be writing Guardians 2.”

So, it looks like Marvel has plenty of faith in Gunn, and we’ll find out if it’s warranted when Guardians of the Galaxy arrives next week. »

Chris Pratt wants Star-Lord to kill Iron Man

25 July 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During a press conference in London promoting Guardians of the Galaxy (read our ★★★★ review here), director James Gunn spoke about Chris Pratt’s ideas of what would happen if and when the Guardians meet Earth’s Mightiest Heroes...

“Chris and I were driving somewhere and we were having one of our ridiculous conversations about Guardians and what we could do with this universe,” the director explained. “And he looked at me and said, ‘dude, I really, really think Star-Lord should kill Iron Man. It would be so awesome if he just came down, and shot Tony Stark in the face. People would be so surprised!’”

“Marvel will never use any of my ideas, so this isn’t a spoiler”, Pratt adds. “But in the comics, Tony Stark and Gamora have a little thing – and how does Peter Quill feel about that? And he’s all like, ‘I don’t like »

James Gunn on the chances of The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy teaming up

25 July 2014 4:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn shot down the rumours about The Incredible Hulk meeting up with the Guardians for the inevitable sequel to the upcoming superhero space opera, stating that “I wouldn’t want the Hulk to team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy.”

However, speaking to Digital Spy, it seems Gunn is more convinced that The Hulk may team up with the Guardians, albeit with the rest of the Avengers by his side, with the director stating that: “I think that there’s certainly a decent chance that in the near future some of the Guardians or some of the the Avengers, or the Guardians and the Avengers, or some permutation of that will meet at some point in time.”

Gunn is presumably referring to The Avengers 3, which is expected to see the superheroes squaring off against the cosmic villain Thanos (and for which »

Finding the Dinosaur: A 'Step Brothers' Appreciation

24 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Once a month, RollingStone.com will shine a spotlight on a forgotten, neglected, overshadowed, underappreciated and/or critically maligned film that we love in a new series we're calling "Be Kind, Rewind."  Our inaugural movie: Step Brothers.

When you're a kid, adults are great at telling you what happens when you grow up. You get a job, you find a partner, you make a home — simple. What no one ever addresses is how much that all sounds like a bunch of bullshit. Compared to, say, doing karate in the garage, »

Will Ferrell Wants to Reboot Bizarre 'Manimal' TV Show

23 July 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

If you were alive and watching TV during an eight-week period in 1983, you may remember the short-lived show ManimalSimon MacCorkindale starred as a rich playboy who solved crimes with his ability to morph into any animal he wanted – a skill bestowed upon him by some African tribe. It was every bit as wonderfully bizarre as it sounds – and naturally Will Ferrell is totally up for rebooting it as a movie. Sony Pictures Animation has teamed up with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay (Anchorman, Step Brothers) to create a hybridized live-action-and-animation update of Manimal. Reports claim the new version will reenvision the show as an action comedy with lots of visual effects and animated elements. Here's an image from the original television show. McKay...

Sony Pictures Animation has announced that Jimmy Miller’s Mosaic, and Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez Productions will produce Manimal, a live-action/animated feature film that takes the concept of the cult television drama of the same title – a crime-fighter who can transform into animals – and reinvents it as an action-comedy.

The project, which will be a live-action hybrid heavy in visual effects and animation, is being overseen by Sony Pictures Animation President of Production Michelle Raimo Kouyate and Svp Michael Lachance.

Adam McKay & Will Ferrell Reteam to Bring 'Manimal' Back to Life

22 July 2014 11:11 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Some of the best comedies of the past decade have come from director Adam McKay and star Will Ferrell. Their collaborations have included Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (and the sequel), Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, The Other Guys and Step Brothers. Now the two are teaming up yet again with an adaptation of the 1980s cult favorite TV show Manimal. However, this time they're mixing things up a bit, because they're working with Sony Pictures Animation on the film following the man who fights crime using his unique ability to morph into animals. The show was canned after eight episodes. But the series found a big cult following, mostly because of the ridiculous nature of the show itself, and now Deadline says Sony Pictures Animation is creating a live-action and animation hybrid that is taking the concept and turning it into an action comedy with "heavy visual effects and animated elements. »

Will Ferrell Planning A "Manimal" Adaptation

22 July 2014 5:16 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Will Ferrell and his regular directing cohort Adam McKay ("Anchorman," "Step Brothers") are teaming yet again, this time to produce a film adaptation of the short-lived 1983 NBC series "Manimal" for Sony Pictures Animation.

Simon MacCorkindale ("Death on the Nile") starred in the original series as Dr. Jonathan Chase, a dashing and wealthy man raised in Africa who mastered the ability to morph into various different animals to fight crime.

The show ran for just eight episodes before being canceled. This new film adaptation will be a combination live-action and CG-animated effort and will re-envision the material as an action comedy.

Both Ferrell and McKay will produce alongside Jimmy Miller and series co-creator Glen A. Larson, but it's unclear if Ferrell will star. McKay won't direct though as they are currently seeking a helmer for the project. Jay Martel and Ian Roberts ("Key and Peele") will write the script.
