The second Guardians of the Galaxy film will start filming this year and when it does, director James Gunn will be the first person to shoot on a brand new camera. He’ll be using the 8K Red Weapon.
We’re a little over a year and a half away from seeing the continuing adventures of Star Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2—and now, casting has begun on the sequel.
Isn’t it crazy to think Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is only a year old? Released August 1st last year, the film became such a cultural phenomenon that Rocket and Groot are now almost as recognizable as Captain America and Iron Man.
In a recent interview with Collider, director James Gunn noted that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 will be a more emotional, and that it will be a bigger, yet smaller movie.
It's Guardians of the Galaxy's most beloved scene. But have you ever wondered why Baby Groot froze in place whenever Drax the Destroyer turned to look at him? Director James Gunn actually has an answer.
Guardians of the Galaxy's James Gunn is claiming that Marvel isn't going to Comic-Con this year. This news could make a lot of other studios very happy, but sadden a ton of fans.
So now the question is this: Who is it?
James Gunn took to his Facebook page to respond to a number of disses superhero movies took during the awards season. He was mostly very unconcerned with it all, but he did end with the admonition that their characters were every bit as loved as those from "serious" films.
Director James Gunn allowed Facebook users to ask him anything - and he gave plenty of answers. Nestled amongst bits about favorite scenes or most difficult moments is confirmation of something (potentially) major: Adam Warlock was not in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Not only is he one of the awesome minds behind Robot Chicken (and also occasionally the galaxy's snarkiest pilot), but it turns out Seth Green is also pretty good at making custom action figures, looking at this set of toys based on the Ravagers he gave James Gunn for Christmas.
We're living in the age of the Shared Universe - more and more studios want a snifter of Marvel's money, and we're due for even more Cinematic Universes in our moviegoing future. But over the weekend James Gunn raised an excellent point on Facebook that really highlights the potentially ruinous flaw in this new boom.
The How It Should Have Ended guys have gotten their hands on Guardians of the Galaxy to the delight of everyone, including director James Gunn, who wrote: "Haha! I love these. Having a 'How It Should Have Ended' is better than winning an Oscar." Doesn't this mean they should direct GotG2? Or at least the last bit?
Long have we waited for an official Guardians of the Galaxy dancing Groot toy, which is surprising as most movie toys launch right after the feature's premiere. But the real reason James Gunn waited so long to start baby Groot toy production makes a lot of sense.
While the ending of Guardians of the Galaxy, with its use of "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" is very nearly perfect, James Gunn says there are scenes that got cut from the montage. They include a melancholy look at Peter Quill's grandfather, back on Earth.
As usual, James Gunn is making sure we're apprised of what's going on for Guardians in Asia. And, according to one translation, China's gotten to the heart of the matter with "Interplanetary Unusual Attacking Team."
Guardians of the Galaxy is premiering in Japan this week and director James Gunn has been kind enough to inform the world of the beauty that are their trailers.
Who's your daddy, Star-Lord? No, seriously, who is he? Because as director James Gunn has confirmed in an Empire Online interview, the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Peter Quill will not be the son of J'Son, alien Emperor of Spartax, his dad in the original comics.
Did you wonder why it was so wondrously easy to open your heart to the lovely sort-of-talking tree creature Groot? Because he's an amalgam of everything that is adorable in this world, including director James Gunn's dog, Dr. Von Spears.
Guardians of the Galaxy isn't just one of the year's best movies. It's also a really interesting experiment with form — it blends hilarious comedy, utterly sincere classic-rock corniness, and massive hold-onto-yourself cosmic adventure. The result might make you look at classic adventures a new way. NO SPOILERS…
Tomorrow, James Gunn ventures into wild space-opera territory with Guardians of the Galaxy. But just like Peter Jackson, Gunn started out directing gonzo horror — and we're going to take a look at the strange and miraculous journey behind the making of Slither.
