Chris Pratt Reveals How He Got Ripped the Healthy Way This Time

5 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Best known for his role as portly Andy Dwyer on the NBC series Parks and Recreation, Chris Pratt has become adept at looking the part. But as his roles as a ballplayer in Moneyball, a Navy Seal in Zero Dark Thirty and now star of the new Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy prove, the 35-year-old has also learned (sometimes the hard way) what it takes to get in amazing shape. Starting at 250 lbs., Pratt says he first approached weight loss just like he did when he wrestled in high school. "I was like, 'I'm going to cut weight, put on plastics, »

10 Unlikely Action Movie Stars

9 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

A year ago, nobody expected that Marvel Studios would cast lovable Parks and Rec goof Chris Pratt as Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, in Guardians of the Galaxy; at the time, Pratt wasn’t a total stranger to the world of action - courtesy of a supporting role in Zero Dark Thirty - but he’d never attempted anything on the scale of Marvel’s grand space opera, either.

Guardians opens today, and Pratt nails the physicality of the role, which spells good news for his future action endeavors (not only a Guardians sequel, but Jurassic World as well). Whether he’s outwitting foes with guile, blasting down bad guys, or swinging prosthetic legs like baseball bats, Pratt is the real deal in every set piece, both big and small.

He isn’t, however, the first actor to transition ...

19 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Chris Pratt is now a full-fledged action star.

One of the most likable actors today, Pratt found a home on network television from the start with recurring roles on "Everwood," "The O.C.," and, of course, on "Parks and Recreation." Rather than just sticking with the small screen, the actor slowly showed his range and landed in a string of Oscar-nominated films in supporting, but memorable, roles. This summer, Pratt takes the next step in his career when he can be seen starring in Marvel's latest blockbuster "Guardians of the Galaxy."

From his Bubba Gump Shrimp past to his famous wife, here are 17 things you probably don't know about Chris Pratt.

1. Chris Pratt was born June 21, 1979 in Virginia, Minnesota to Kathy Indahl and Dan Pratt.

2. Pratt was raised in Lake Stevens, Washington.

3. Growing up, Pratt wrestled and even finished fifth in a state wrestling tournament in high school.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Review: He Said, She Said

31 July 2014 5:10 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The blockbuster of the year hits theaters on Friday, but before you head out to your local cinema, Wamg has your review of Guardians Of The Galaxy – twice – with a He Said, She Said look at the film.

©Marvel 2014

By Jim Batts

It’s been nearly four months since Captain America and company took down the forces of Hydra (and dismantled Shield along the way), and so, after the new cinematic adventures of the X-Men and Spider-Man from Fox and Sony, film fans are eager for another trip to the Marvel Studios “movie universe”. With this new feature, that arena gets a major expansion. That’s because they’re getting away from their comfort zone. Actually light years away. We’re not trodding the same ground as Cap and Tony Stark (although much of the Thor flicks bounced between Earth and far-off Asgard). We’re probably nearby that “galaxy far, »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Review: 10 Things You Need to Know About Marvel's Newest Franchise

31 July 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

There's never been a question mark, as far as the Marvel Cinematic Universe goes, as large and looming as this week's "Guardians of the Galaxy." It's the story of a bunch of outcasts, losers, killers and thieves, brought together by fate and the long arm of the law, to rescue the galaxy from a nefarious threat. By comparison "Thor," about a Norse God who lives on another planet and comes to earth to romance a comely astrophysicist, seems positively boilerplate.

And yet there seems to be a buzz building to cacophonous levels -- at San Diego Comic Con, the nerd ground zero, it was everywhere and even those who aren't familiar with the relatively obscure comic book characters are jazzed about the movie, possibly because one of the main characters is a talking, gun-toting raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and another is a sentient tree creature who only has three lines of dialogue, »

Variety jumps into the deep end of crafts coverage and it's about time

30 July 2014 3:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As one person put it to me, "It's nice to have a trade covering, you know, the trades, because we haven't really had that in some time." Indeed, it's fantastic to see our colleagues at Variety dig in and represent the industry as they are with the newly branded "Artisans" initiative, and it's a long, long time coming. It is and has been an underreported element of the business, but I've happily seen that slowly shift in the decade we've been diligently, sometimes obsessively, covering below-the-line here at In Contention. From the word go, we made these artists a priority around here. They have an insight into the process that is always preferable to the soundbyte-prone "stars" of the circuit, and as someone who has always come at this work from that perspective, those chats are typically the most fulfilling to me. As we've forged ahead, we've witnessed other outlets »

Paul Greengrass To Direct Al Qaeda Thriller 'Agent Storm'

29 July 2014 7:13 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

The book has not even been released yet, but Agent Storm: My Life Inside Al Qaeda — which is being developed into a film by Sony Pictures — is already on track to be a massive Oscar contender.

Sony has assembled a team of director Paul Greengrass and producer Scott Rudin, who previously collaborated to make the wildly successful 2013 Best Picture nominee, Captain Phillips.

Greengrass — whose previous films include United 93 and the Irish civil rights movie Bloody Sunday — has a wonderful knack for adapting harrowing true stories into tense dramatizations.

Agent Storm seems like it is right up the director’s alley.

The nonfiction book, which comes out in September, follows the unbelievable account of Morten Storm, a red-haired Dane who adopted radical Jihadism. After a decade of militant extremism, Storm realized that his friends and colleagues had pushed his limits, and were becoming far too dangerous. Storm became a double agent for British, »

New Trailer For Al Pacino's Salomé

29 July 2014 5:59 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

If your Tuesday needs a few more severed heads than usual, you’re in luck: the new trailer for Al Pacino’s Oscar Wilde double bill of Salomé and Wilde Salomé is here. The play has long been a passion project for the shouty actor, and there’s plenty of excellent Pacino ranting (“I got four days to shoot a 90-minute play!”) for those who like that sort of thing. In the title role is one Jessica Chastain. Her performance predates Zero Dark Thirty and The Tree Of Life, though it was purportedly this play that brought her to the attention of one Terrence Malick.The original play sees the titular Salomé, daughter of King Herod, cultivate an obsession with John the Baptist, leading to dancing, pining and beheading. As Wilde himself wrote, “One should not look at anything. Neither at things, nor at people should one look. Unless it »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Review: Marvel At Its Very Best

27 July 2014 3:06 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Guardians of the Galaxy is one of those comic book properties that is kind of "out there." Like in way out there. As in way-out-in-outer-space out there. After carefully crafting a compelling cinematic universe, Marvel Studios took a gamble on the property, one that, on paper, could make for an incredible movie experience if done right. I've been a huge fan of the Marvel cosmic universe for decades, and Abnett and Lanning's run on the Guardians of the Galaxy is one of my favorite comic stories ever. But could it truly make for a decent film, or a long-term franchise? I'm ecstatic to report that Marvel has completely delivered. Guardians of the Galaxy is not only a good movie, it's one of the best of all of the Marvel Studios films, and is as good as, if not better than, The Avengers. Seriously.

Halo: Nightfall Gets A Tense First Trailer, Rounds Out Cast

25 July 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In one of its most ambitious undertakings to date, Microsoft is moving forward with the live-action Halo: Nightfall TV series, which will debut for the Xbox One this November. Hailing from Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions and Microsoft’s 343 Industries, the five-part series is set between the fourth and upcoming fifth Halo video games. Now, we have a taut first trailer for the show, which promises lots of brooding actors and an enigmatic storyline – not much of a surprise, seeing as it was written by Prison Break creator Paul Scheuring.

Nightfall centers on a new character named Jameson Locke (Mike Colter), described as “a legendary manhunter and agent with the Office of Naval Intelligence (Oni), Earth’s most powerful and secretive military branch.” Locke is the protagonist of Halo 5: Guardians, so Nightfall will act as an origin story for the character.

When Critics Hurt Instead of Help

23 July 2014 4:22 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Over the course of reviewing hundreds of movies a year, a critic over-hypes at least one movie; it happens more times than one would like, but it happens. The main culprit is often red-carpet festival premieres that lead to a dizzying high that positively impacts a film’s reception. A plethora of four star reviews that may have only been three or three-and-a-half after said critic digests the film for a week or two more. Eager cinephiles read these glowing reviews out of Cannes, Telluride and Toronto and place those movies extremely high on their most anticipated lists.

Months pass and the film is finally available for moviegoers to see for themselves. You pay your admission, watch the film, and, following the end credits, disappointment inevitably hangs in the air walking out of the theatre. It’s not that the film was bad necessarily, but the hype took hold and »
