As we count down to the release of Guardians of the Galaxy, prepare for a full blown media assault: Videos! Posters! Press Junkets! Red Carpets! The whole Hollywood enchilada! Next on the hit parade an extended clip, a trailer promoting the IMAX version of the film, some character posters featuring the film’s myriad of villains, and images from the red carpet of last night’s world premiere.

It’s busy days for the man that manages the Marvel Cinematic Universe, producer Kevin Feige. Not only does he have his studio’s biggest gamble, Guardians of the Galaxy, hitting theaters in a few short weeks, but he’s got to stun the nerdy masses this coming weekend at San Diego Comic Con, which is pretty much his industry’s trade show. As usual, there’s a lot of rumor, speculation, and outright innuendo when it comes to anything from Marvel Studios, so Feige is once again playing rumor control, and setting the record straight on a couple of things, amongst them: fear of Edgar Wright, a future on film for Namor The Sub-Mariner, and the potential for franchise crossovers. Let’s get into it! (more…)
Something like this was bound to happen, the Internet spent a week worrying it self to death over what Nathan Fillion‘s cameo in James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy would be. Now, with the release of the UK Press Kit, we know all the who and what of the cameos, if we don’t know exactly where those will fit into the movie. I didn’t want to click it and find out, but after about 20 seconds of soul-searching, I crumbled so we could bring it to you here.
*SPOILER ALERT*SPOILER ALERT*SPOILER ALERT*SPOILER ALERT
Last chance…. proceed at your own spoilery risk. (more…)
Right off the bat, I’m going to say that this is fantastic. We’ve seen other Guardians of the Galaxy trailers before, and they’ve all been cool enough to make us jump on board. This one in particular has us not only jumping on the ship but also holding guns to the heads of usurpers out to make us stop. Nothing can make us stop. Not the true fans. Pirate this, b*tch! We are in it for the long haul ladies and gentlemen, and for once in our lives let us smell what the Captain is cooking and just ride along like we’re supposed to. Am I saying we should just love what Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is doing here? Yes. Love it immediately. On top of the fact that director James Gunn and Marvel are premiering finished footage in finished screenings to the first-come-first-served group, we have this new piece all set to go. And why? They didn’t need to do it. Call it fan service, plain and simple. Just say Yes Please and relax your hand. (more…)
Halloween is supposed to be scary but a new batch of Guardians of the Galaxy costumes being prepped for October are beyond frightening. They are…disturbing. There’s something about the eyes in these photos. Something human and sad and enslaved. Just look at the picture above. But don’t look too long, otherwise you may lose your soul to that…thing claiming to be Groot.
But there’s more. Oh, there is much more. Over here, in the dark. (more…)
Starting today, if you visit Disney theme parks in Florida and California, you’ll get a chance to see 17-minutes of footage from Marvel Studios’ upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy. A lucky few have already been able to see about 9 minutes of GOTG footage, and the verdict so far is awesome! If you’re looking forward to GOTG and are counting the days until August 1, you are going to be very pleased with that news. And if you’re one of those types that can’t wait to see the movie, there’s plenty of talk online as to what those 9 minutes contain. Spoilers follow, so if you want to stay fresh, I might advise you to overt your eyes now. (more…)
I’m not much for viral movie marketing. Ever since The Dark Knight basically set the standard with its grim demands of search and discover detective work, I’ve snottily scoffed at the paltry efforts of movies trying to entice me through the internet. If you’re not even going to try measuring up to the craziness of that Joker fest, just go back to Mad Men school and learn how it’s done. Another fantastic promo plan that comes to mind was Tropic Thunder’s amazing fake movie trailers. I never wanted a pretend movie to be real like I did with Ben Stiller’s Simple Jack. When you put that kind of effort into your marketing campaign, I tend to think you’re dedicated to making an excellent movie. Today, I got that warm feeling again…with Guardians of the Galaxy.

The Guardians Of The Galaxy has always been an ecclectic comic, and it sure as hell looks like an eccentric movie. Few of us have read through those pages and thought “I bet ‘Addicted To Love‘ would fit in great during this aerial dog-fight.” This is a series that intrinsically begs for Weird Al Yankovich and They Might Be Giants on its soundtrack. Yet neither are anywhere to be found. (more…)
Much of the Internet exploded with joy when they heard that fan favorite Nathan Fillion was going to be doing a little cameo in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Since the announcement, people have been trying to guess at what kind of role he’ll be taking on. At first people thought he was going to be Nova, a hero rumored to be making a brief cameo during the post-credits scene of Guardians. Another rumor even claimed that they knew the absolute truth, that Fillion was going to be voicing Cosmo, an intelligent Earth dog turned space traveler. But now Fillion is saying that we don’t know what the hell we’re talking about. (more…)
