Guardians of the Galaxy 2 director

In the U.S., Guardians of the Galaxy was universally well-liked. It got a 91% on the Tomatometer and an A rating from Cinemascore, not to mention over $300 million in domestic box office sales. But that hasn’t been the case in China, where it opened to mixed responses from critics and audiences alike last weekend.

It’s not that the Chinese are immune to Groot’s charms. (Duh, who could be?) Rather, it’s because poorly translated subtitles are ruining the jokes. Hit the jump for more on the bad Guardians of the Galaxy Chinese subtitles.

Allison Williams As Peter Pan

As one live-action fairy tale after another winds its way to the big screen, NBC is doing one better with an actual live production. Following the smash success (well, ratings-wise) of last winter’s The Sound of Music Live!, the network is putting on Peter Pan Live! this winter.

Allison Williams stars as the boy who never grew up (which kinda fits, since Girls is all about girls who can’t quite seem to grow up) and Christopher Walken plays the malicious Captain Hook. The first Peter Pan Live poster has just been revealed and you can see it after the jump.

NBC Trying to Remake ‘The IT Crowd’ Again

The IT Crowd

Before Chris O’Dowd was showing up in Judd Apatow movies and Richard Ayoade was being hailed as a fresh young voice in filmmaking, they were big in British TV as the hapless leads of The IT Crowd. Big enough, in fact, that an American remake of the series was commissioned by NBC in 2007, with Joel McHale playing the O’Dowd role and Ayoade remaining intact.

If you’re a big fan of the original show, you likely know what happened next: A terrible pilot was shot but the series never got off the ground, to the relief of IT Crowd fans everywhere. But because everything old is new again, NBC is now going to try turning The IT Crowd back on again. This time with a little help from Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence. Get the latest on the IT Crowd remake after the jump.
