Composers for Marvel’s TV Universe Strike a Different Chord

12 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Traditionally, when comic-book super-heroes are adapted for the screen, they are accompanied by big orchestras playing heroic themes. Think John Williams’ “Superman” theme or Danny Elfman’s “Spider-Man” music.

For its TV series, however, Marvel has thrown out the old rulebook. Like the Marvel Universe itself, not every hero is alike; some of them don’t even wear colorful costumes. No fewer than 13 series based on Marvel Comics are either on the air now or will be by this time next year, and their scores are as diverse as the characters themselves.

“I love what Marvel has done,” says Dawn Soler, senior vice-president for music for ABC Studios, which oversees most of the Marvel series. “They are not locking into a ‘Marvel sound.’ Super-heroes are becoming a different thing than they were way back when. They are worlds apart. Every score is different.”

The approaches vary widely, from the psychedelic colors of “Legion” to the noirish »

“Marilyn Manson would love to be the villain in a Marvel movie…” Tyler Bates ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ interview

22 August 2017 9:07 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 has rocked up on disc this week, taking you back to writer/director James Gunn’s wild dimension of space opera fused with an array of jukebox classics. Music plays a bigger role in this movie than most – composer Tyler Bates had to boldly go above and beyond for Marvel’s unique comic book franchise, as this revealing interview explains…

Thn: As with the first film, the soundtrack for Gotg Vol. 2 was composed before the shoot, which is an approach I’ve never heard of before. Where did the inspiration for this come from?

Tyler Bates: Well there was plenty of music in post production but over the years James Gunn and I have known each other. Our working relationship began on Slither and we’d discussed working in this fashion, more like Sergio Leone and Ennio Morricone. By the time we got »

Now on Blu-ray: Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2's Daddy Issues Light Up Your TV Screen

22 August 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

When it was announced that cult film favorite James Gunn (Super, Dawn of the Dead, Slither) was going to take the reigns of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, a segment of the film underground was taken aback. While the McU had toyed with having directors who were notorious for perhaps being a bit experimental and pulpy - Louis Leterrier, Joss Whedon, Joe Johnston - none were as out of left field as Gunn. A truly subversive filmmaker who cut his teeth in the Troma sweatshops and whose previous features as a director, Slither and Super, were cult hits, but considered a bit too weird for mainstream audiences, Gunn's vision of the Guardians was sure to be spectacular, but what was unclear was whether it would...

Blu-ray Review: Slither Collector’s Edition

26 July 2017 2:05 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

I can still remember going to see James Gunn’s debut feature Slither on opening night in March of 2006. It was to be my birthday movie, so myself and a group of friends all got together at the movie theater, ready to check out what Gunn had in store for us. I was the only one among us with an awareness of his work, having followed his career as a screenwriter during his days at Troma through The Specials, the two live-action Scooby-Doo movies, and, most notably, his 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead. Because I knew what to expect from a James Gunn movie, naturally I loved Slither. My friends did, too. The rest of the nearly empty theater seemed puzzled and disgusted by it, though, and I knew that night that the movie was going to die a quick death.

I was half right. Yes, Slither disappeared from »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Nathan Fillion Cameo Posters Revealed

25 May 2017 9:32 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As you may now, Nathan Fillion was supposed to have a very minuscule role in this May's hit sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. But he was axed, left to die on the cutting room floor. All is not lost, though, as director James Gunn is sharing a look at exactly what this cameo would have consisted of. And it's all spoof posters.

Earlier in the month, Gunn confirmed that his friend Nathan Fillion had a small part to play in Guardians 2. Though his role would have not been an acting one. Instead, Fillion posed for a number of movie posters for a Simon Williams film festival happening at a theater that would have been seen during the Earth attack sequence played out by Ego the Living Planet.

The good news to come from this is that Simon WIlliams is now officially part of the Marvel cinematic canon. Williams »

'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2': Why Marvel's Misfit-Filmmaker Gamble Works

8 May 2017 9:49 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Another weekend, another blockbuster Marvel opening at the box office. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the latest episode in the company's cosmic-mercenaries saga, predictably crushed the competition, grossing an estimated $425 million globally and perpetuating the studio's multiplex dominance. If you're looking for a secret to the company's success, we'll direct you to a 2014 comment from GotG director James Gunn. "I made a decision early on that I wanted it to be a hundred percent a James Gunn movie and a hundred percent a Marvel movie," he said after the first film's release. »

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 | Review

5 May 2017 5:00 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

A surprise hit when it surpassed expectations back in 2014, James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy raked in over 700 million at the box office, surpassing many of the tried and true super hero properties of the vaunted Marvel label. But what goes up must come down, and the element of surprise enlivening the first installment seems glaringly absent from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which more or less functions the same way as the previous film as concerns a ragtag group of superhero misfits, who, like Deadpool, seem more overtly concerned with selfish agendas and in-house squabbling than run-of-the-mill altruistic heroes.

Despite dancing around predictable beats, although this time around the focus shifting (like many franchise properties) into exploring the notion of what makes a cohesive familial unit rather than its characters being charged with explicitly saving the galaxy, Gunn manages to resurrect the same sense of scruffy charm, replete with (mostly) obscure vintage soundtrack references to make this second revolution more palatable than most of its continuously recycled Marvel cousins.

After completing a job for a race of bronzed elitist beings known as the Sovereign, led by the haughty Ayesha (Elizabeth Debicki, reminiscent of a similar race led by Charlotte Rampling in Zardoz), Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) and his crew are now in custody of Gamora’s (Zoe Saldana) rebellious younger sister Nebula (Karen Gillian), a being with a significant axe to grind with her sibling thanks to the abuses she endured growing up with their father. However, since the continuously ornery and disgruntled Rocket (the voice of Bradley Cooper) stole some of the precious batteries they delivered to the Sovereign, this leads to the Guardians being chased across the galaxy by the disgruntled priestess. In their flight, they are forced to crash land their ship in a remote locale, whereupon they are visited by the immortal being Ego (Kurt Russell), who informs Peter he is the long lost father he has always longed to know. Ego’s servant, Mantis (Pom Klementieff), who can read people’s emotions if she touches them, tips the Guardians off to Ego’s less than fatherly plans. Meanwhile, Yondu (Michael Rooker), the violent ravager who Ego had hired to bring Peter to him from Earth (but instead kept him and raised him to be a thief, as touched upon in the previous film), has been contending with being ostracized by the Ravagers, as exemplified by a tiff with Stakar Ogord (Sylvester Stallone). As these storylines converge, Yondu, hired by Ayesha to capture the Guardians until his motley crew of subordinates stage a mutiny, is forced to contend with his own notion of legacy.

With dashes of Elo and Jay and the Americans among the glorious soundtrack highlights, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 plays like the kind of franchise installment assured of its success. Gunn, who this time around went solo on the screenplay, delivers endlessly witty exchanges with characters solely on hand for comedic relief such as Dave Bautista’s Drax, or the cutesy Baby Groot, the extension of the deceased character voice by Vin Diesel in the first film, here returning with a modified lilt.

Unfortunately, new additions to the cast are rather leaden, such as Karen Gillan’s husky voiced Nebula, or Kurt Russell’s amused immortal, neither of whom are handled with the same lightness as other core players, perhaps as a way to exemplify the angsty foundation of both Peter and Gamora. Vintage references abound thanks to Peter’s obsessive nostalgia for his youth, comparing his hampered romance with Gamora to that of Cheers, while a Mary Poppins reference plays for great laughs.

Gunn grants Michael Rooker the best character arc of all this time around (the actor has appeared, usually quite memorably, in Gunn’s previous films Slither and Super), while lead Chris Pratt gets wedged into a father-son dilemma clearly modeled after Luke Skywalker’s patriarchal woes from The Empire Strikes Back. Considering the plot contrivances of the first Guardians weren’t necessarily groundbreaking, the happenings of Vol. 2, by default, seem even less memorable since we’re dealing with epic storyline parameters with characters who are, by design, peripheral.

Plenty of actions sequences abound, including the requisite showdown between opposing forces, but most of these seem too computer generated (particularly Mr. Russell’s confectionary kingdom) to inspire awe (in fact, nothing really measures up to a goofy opening credit sequence where Baby Groot dances to “Mr. Blue Sky” as his colleagues battle a slithery, tentacled monster). Still, those seeking big budget, escapist entertainment should easily be won over by Gunn’s sequel, which is insistently witty (and sometimes, unfortunately, to the point of belaboring itself), even if its storyline doesn’t hold up past the credits.

★★★/☆☆☆☆☆

In 2014, Marvel Studios unleashed the film that seemed like the first real gamble in their freight train of superhero blockbusters, Guardians Of The Galaxy. A space opera that features a talking raccoon and a humanoid tree as lead characters seemed like such an out there concept, it was only fitting that James Gunn (Slither, Super) was picked to direct it.

Hooked on a Feeling: Remembering Guardians of the Galaxy

28 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the sequel on release now [read our review here], Sean Wilson casts his mind back to summer 2014 when the original Marvel adventure became the true underdog champ of blockbuster movies…

A kindly tree-like creature named Groot illuminates a series of spores, imbuing his superhero misfit buddies with a profound sense of wonderment. Tyler Bates’ score soars off the back of a beautifully managed synthetic/choral arrangement. The integration of CGI with physical actors is exquisitely handled. And it’s official: Guardians of the Galaxy has, against all the odds, become one of my favourite Marvel movies of all time.

Like many great movies, it’s tempting to begin midway through the action. But let’s back up a bit.

It’s July 2014. I’m more than midway through what has been an extremely strong year for cinema encompassing, among others 12 Years a Slave, Under the Skin, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Raid 2, »

Guardians of the Galaxy and Its Exploitation Influences

27 April 2017 4:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ben Robins on Guardians of the Galaxy and its exploitation influences…

Exploitation is a bit of a nasty word no matter the context, and in the movie world, it usually means something cheap and in many cases, derivative. It’s never properly been defined, and doing so here without page after page of background would prove tough, but the term, in a nutshell, is usually used to describe low-brow ‘B-movies’ that rip-off or ‘exploit’ mainstream heavy-hitters. After Steven Spielberg’s Jaws there was Michael Anderson’s Orca, and Joe Dante’s Piranha. After The Italian Job there was everything from Death Race 2000 to Vanishing Point (that was in itself, lovingly rejigged for Tarantino’s 2007 exploitation send-up Death Proof). They make just enough from the cult crowd but very rarely breach the dominant markets. Unless, of course, the film’s name is something stupid enough to go viral, like Sharknado. »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 review: Dir. James Gunn (2017)

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 review: Round two for the Guardians and our first Marvel film of the year. Can it match the reception of the first film?

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 review by Paul Heath.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 review // Marvel Studios

James Gunn brings the second instalment of his ‘Guardians’ series to screens with this, another massively budgeted, retro-soundtracked, hugely ambitious, behemoth of a picture that might just out-class the original.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 picks up the story shortly after the Guardians have saved the galaxy from the villainous Ronan the Accuser in the first film. Volume 2 opens to the crew, Chris Pratt‘s Peter Quill, Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), and baby Groot (Vin Diesel) seemingly having a little trouble with a monster called the Abilisk on a faraway planet . The sequence grabs your attention, »

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Reviews: What the Critics Are Saying

24 April 2017 11:17 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star-Lord and the rest of his “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” gang have their work cut out for them when the sequel opens May 5 if they want to match the critical and financial success of the Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, and Dave Bautista original.

According to most of Hollywood’s top critics, director James Gunn’s follow-up to Marvel’s 2014 hit falters a bit when it comes to unadulterated entertainment, but the emphasis on family makes “Vol. 2” a welcome addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Here’s what the critics are saying:

Variety’s Owen Gleiberman

“Shot for shot, line and line, it’s an extravagant and witty follow-up, made with the same friendly virtuosic dazzle. Yet this time you can sense just how hard the series’ wizard of a director, James Gunn (now taking off from a script he wrote solo), is working to entertain you. »

Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. 2 Song List Revealed

19 April 2017 2:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A few weeks ago, Guardians of the Galaxy 2 director James Gunn revealed that the highly-anticipated soundtrack Awesome Mix Vol. 2 will be released in the U.S. on April 28. As it turns out, fans in the U.K. will be able to purchase this soundtrack a full week earlier, and with just two days to the U.K. release, Marvel has finally unveiled the official track list. There will be 14 songs featured on this soundtrack, some of which we've already heard on the previously-released trailers thus far.

The Marvel U.K. & Ireland Twitter account unveiled the track list today through a poster featuring Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) holding up a cassette tape, with the "set list" taped above him. This image confirms that songs from the previous Guardians 2 trailers, "The Chain" by Fleetwood Mac and "Fox on the Run" by Sweet are on the soundtrack, but other songs used in trailers and TV spots, »

James Gunn Should Make as Many ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Movies As He Wants

18 April 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No two words have been as closely associated with the modern comic book movie than “dark” and “gritty,” oft-repeated buzzwords that speak to an attitude and style that have not always panned out for the franchise-leaning features (a lesson that DC continues to learn the hard way). Filmmaker James Gunn doesn’t do gritty — at least when it comes to his “Guardians of the Galaxy” features, though his earlier work, which includes 2006’s clever riff on cheesy sci-fi “Slither” and 2010’s just plain nasty “Super,” reveal wry hints of deviousness to his aesthetic that his Marvel properties happily circumvent.

That has allowed him to craft some of the franchise’s most purely entertaining installments — “Guardians” and its sequel, which opens May 5 — and it’s no surprise that he’s already signed up to direct a third “Guardians” movie, making him the first filmmaker to tackle three Marvel movies in a row. »

Excitement has reached fever pitch amongst many film fans as the eagerly anticipated Marvel sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is now just under two weeks away and the stars, including Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana, have begun their huge promotional tour across the globe (they had to the UK next week!).

The writer/director of the first two films, as well as films like Slither and Super, has announced on his Facebook page that he is to return once again to write and direct Vol.3. and thought that sharing it with the fans before the press junkets begin was the best way to share the news.
