Sitting down to see Guardians of the Galaxy the first time, the most surprising thing about it was its tone. Director James Gunn created such a fun, energetic feeling with the film, which was cemented in that wonderful opening credits sequence. That showed Star Lord (Chris Pratt) rocking out to Come and Get Your Love by Redbone. Instantly, you knew this movie was different. This movie was going to be fun, yet also grounded.
The actors had that knowledge before the film even began shooting. Gunn gave Pratt in particular his own customized Awesome Mix Vol. 1 to listen to so he’d be in the mindset of his character. Most of the songs made it into the movie but some did not. Now Gunn has revealed the full original list. He also explains why a few of the songs didn’t make it into the final film.
