Earlier this week we brought you some comments from Karen Gillan, who revealed that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will delve into the past of Nebula, and her complicated relationships with her father Thanos and sister Gamora. Now the actress has been chatting to THR about the hotly-anticipated Marvel sequel, reiterating that the theme of family will be a major element of the film, and how this will help us to see a more human side of the character.
“I’m so excited for people to see it! I just feel like it’s all of the best elements of the first one, just amplified. It’s even better – it’s funnier, the music’s even better … the second album is a blinder. It’s great. And in the first one everyone was being established. Now that that’s out of the way, you really get to delve into »

One of several surprises to come out of 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy was wrestler-turned-actor Dave Bautista’s excellent turn as the vengeful and brutally honest Drax the Destroyer, who garnered the love of fans around the world. Drax will be back in this year’s highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, with Bautista returning to fill his shoes, and if director James Gunn’s latest post on his Facebook page tells us anything, it’s that Drax will be a highlight once again.
To celebrate Bautista’s January 18th birthday, Gunn took to Facebook to share an image of him with a fully-costumed Bautista and a heartfelt message about his friend. Halfway through the post, however, Gunn begins teasing readers with audience reactions to Drax in test screenings and writes the following: “He’s been blowing people’s minds in our early screenings of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 »

Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays here at Lrm, where two real-life best friends put their heads together and pretend to be studio execs as they try to cast and hire other pertinent talent for upcoming geek properties.
This week, we turn our attention towards Green Lantern Corps, since there were recent developments on that front recently. The film recently snagged David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Blade) and Justin Rhodes (Grassroots) to write the script, with DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns producing and overseeing the project. There's also been talk that it'll have a sort of Lethal Weapon vibe to it, and that it'll sort of base itself off of the Sinestro Corps Wars.
Naturally, this news got all of us here at Lrm talking, »

It’s becoming quite the regular occurrence for toy manufacturers to give us our first look at various characters from upcoming blockbusters, even going as far as to spoil the surprise on certain occasions (see Giant-Man in Captain America: Civil War, for example).

Karen Gillan will be reprising her role as Nebula in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and recently took part in an interview with The Wrap to discuss how the sequel (which is arguably the most anticipated comic book movie of the year) will develop the character.
“What I love about the second movie for Nebula in particular is that we get — we know that she’s a pretty angry woman with some daddy issues. [But] in the second movie, we’re going to start to see how much pain her father actually caused her, and we’re going to delve right into the relationship with her sister Gamora.”
Director James Gunn has previously revealed that family will be a big theme in the sequel, stating that: “This movie is about being a family. And what’s harder, becoming a family or being a family? I think it’s being a family. »

He's created a series of performances that have taken advantage of his intensity, his brutish physique and his way around a multi-syllable sentence – and now, Tom Hardy has somehow created a role for himself that feels more Tom Hardy than almost anything else he's done. In Taboo, the new FX series the actor co-created with father Chips Hardy and Peaky Blinders showrunner Steven Knight, he plays gruff protagonist James Delaney, an early 19th-century explorer who returns home to London to find out he's inherited land sought after by the East India Company. »
It's shaping up to be a competitive Martin Luther King Jr. weekend with three new wide releases hitting theaters along with two major expansions and the moderate expansion of Martin Scorsese's Silence. Yet, even with that being the case, after narrowly edging out Rogue One: A Star Wars Story for the #1 spot last weekend, Hidden Figures is looking at a more decisive victory this weekend as the film adds more than 800 theaters. The new releases include STX's PG-13 horror The Bye Bye Man, Paramount is finally delivering Monster Trucks and Open Road will premiere the Jamie Foxx vehicle Sleepless into just over 1,800 theaters. In addition to new releases Lionsgate and CBS Films brings Patriots Day to audiences nationwide and Warner Bros. will do the same for Ben Affleck's Live by Night, but while the former is looking at a solid debut the latter has struggled in limited release. »

Things have changed a lot in Hollywood since the old contract-player days. However, if there’s any talent who’s identified with a particular studio at the moment, it’s Ben Affleck.
The square-jawed, 44-year-old Bostonian produced, directed and starred in Warner Bros.’ last Best Picture Oscar winner, Argo. He’s also made The Town and The Accountant for the company in the past few years. And Affleck not only plays the most important character, Batman/Bruce Wayne, in Warner’s latest round of DC Comics-based movies, »

Despite repeated – and likely speculative – rumours of a potential Netflix show, there’s been no official word from Marvel as to if and when we’ll ever see Moon Knight making his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
That being said, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has revealed on Twitter that he’s pitched an idea for a Moon Knight movie to Marvel Studios, although sadly he’s too busy to think about directing.
““Oh my God I love Moon Knight and I have a great idea for a movie, I just wish I had the time (but, no, he doesn’t belong in Guardians),”Gunn said on Twitter when asked about the possibility of Marc Spector appearing alongside the Guardians. “I told [Marvel]. But, like I said, I just don’t have the time.”
This isn’t the first time that Gunn has expressed an interest in another Marvel property, »
