groot final form

Baby Groot may be the star of the show in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but he won’t be a baby forever. And wait ’til you see him at his peak, Vin Diesel — forever his own best hype man — says.

According to Diesel, you haven’t seen nothing yet of Groot. In fact, the giant, hulking Groot we met in the first Guardians of the Galaxy isn’t even the final form of Groot. But we may see a “full-fledged” Groot soon.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Doritos

You know that we love Cool Stuff here at /Film, and every now and then there’s a story that just makes us say WTF. Today, those two things combine for an item that can only be categorized as WTF Stuff.

Whenever a big blockbuster like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 comes out, there are endless cross promotions and merchandise being sold with the film’s title and characters all over the place. Therefore, we’re not surprised seeing soda cans and bags of chips with Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot and Rocket Raccoon on them. But we are surprised by these official and totally real Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Doritos bags that actually play the film’s soundtrack in its entirety.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Review

Next week will bring Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 to theaters. The advanced test screening scores were more than promising (they received the highest audience scores of any Marvel Studios film), and the brief reactions from the first press screenings had plenty of positive things to say. Now we have a Guardians of the Galaxy 2 review round-up that gives us a little more insight into what works in James Gunn‘s cosmic comic book sequel and what doesn’t. In general, it sounds like the movie is still wholly entertaining, but it’s not quite as good as the franchise starter that came before it.

Check out the excerpts in our Guardians of the Galaxy 2 review round-up below. Read More »

guardians of the galaxy trilogy

We knew the third volume of Guardians of the Galaxy may spell the end for the team as we know it, but it looks like it will wrap up the loose ends before dismantling everything.

James Gunn is planning to make his Guardians of the Galaxy trilogy one complete story. The Guardians will make an appearance in Avengers: Infinity War before their third outing as a team, but then that may be the last we see of this iteration of the Guardians of the Galaxy. But don’t worry: though Gunn may be wrapping up his flagship series, this won’t be the last we see of him with the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

deleted guardians of the galaxy 2 scenes

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was already bursting at the seams with new allies, new enemies, Kurt Russell, Sylvester Stallone, and a whopping five post-credits scenes — so director James Gunn can be forgiven for being a little generous with cuts.

Nathan Fillion‘s cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, was sadly one of the scenes that ended up on the cutting room floor alongside a scene with tons of Easter eggs, according to Gunn. But thanks to the whirlwind Guardians press tour, we’re getting more details about these cut scenes every day.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Clips

Now that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is only just over a couple weeks away, Marvel Studios is making a huge push of new footage in the form of TV spots and clips, especially with the cast making the publicity rounds on late night TV shows and whatnot. Two more clips have just surfaced online featuring plenty of Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, that wonderful Baby Groot (Vin Diesel), and some trouble for the rest of the crew on board the Milano.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Soundtrack

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is one of the most anticipated movies of the summer, and while seeing the next chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the biggest draw of the sequel, the film’s soundtrack is also a big deal for fans. We’ve gotten a tease of some of the songs that will be in the movie by way of various trailers and TV spots, but James Gunn has cautioned that not all of those songs will be on the soundtrack or Star-Lord’s Awesome Mix Vol. 2. Now we don’t have to wonder which songs will make the cut any longer.

Marvel has just released the full tracklist for Awesome Mix Vol. 2, and it’s quite the funky assembly of music, with plenty of tracks that are well known and some that are a little more obscure. Check out the full Guardians of the Galaxy 2 soundtrack setlist below. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Clip

In case it wasn’t clear in the first Guardians of the Galaxy, the teaser trailer for this summer’s sequel affirmed that Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) has some romantic feelings for Gamora (Zoe Saldana). The new character Mantis (Pom Klementieff) revealed as much by way of her psychic empathy, allowing her to feel the emotions of others just by touching them. Now it looks like the romance continues to blossom ever-so-slightly as Star-Lord and Gamora share a quick dance to a tune by Sam Cooke.

Rumors of Sylvester Stallone having a role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 first emerged in March of 2016, but we didn’t get confirmation of his participation in the Marvel Studios sequel until their panel at Comic-Con last summer. But here we are, one month away from release, and we still don’t know who Sylvester Stallone is playing in the cosmic comic book flick.

Recently, director James Gunn revealed that Smallville star Michael Rosenbaum also has a small role in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and he added that the characters played by him and Sylvester Stallone “are very important to the Marvel Universe.” Now we may know which character Sylvester Stallone is playing in Guardians of the Galaxy 2.
