Well, that didn’t take long. Following the release of the first Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 teaser poster this morning, the first teaser trailer has made its way online. It takes a cue from the first teaser trailer for the first installment of the cosmic comic franchise and brings back “Hooked on a Feeling” for the soundtrack.
However, the difference this time is that the teaser trailer has the confidence of a franchise that has already proven itself. Watch the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer after the jump. Read More »
Just recently, the first teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was classified with a running time of 1 minute and 29 seconds. With Doctor Strange set to hit international markets next week, we’re likely to get this teaser trailer either later this week or early next week. But in the meantime, the first Guardians of the Galaxy 2 teaser poster has arrived.
Unlike the polished posters we’ve come to expect from Marvel Studios movies, this particular teaser poster looks more like an album cover straight out of the 1980s, and it has a rather cocky tagline as well. Check out the poster after the jump. Read More »

Since violence is so prevalent in today’s movies, you might be surprised to learn that at one time, violence wasn’t so rampant. There was even a time when a movie like the original Scarface from 1932, directed by Howard Hawks and produced by Howard Hughes, was almost withheld from release because of the presence of violence. By today’s standards, the movie is remarkably tame, but at the time, it was almost offensive.
If you need anymore evidence of the rise of casual violence in movies, look no further than a recently complied list of movies with the most on-screen deaths. You might be surprised to learn that Guardians of the Galaxy has the record for most on-screen deaths, and it’s actually way ahead of the closest competition. Check out the data on the most deaths in movies after the jump.
Here’s the list of the top 10 movies with the most on-screen deaths from Go Compare:
The high kill count for Guardians of the Galaxy comes mostly from the 80,000 Nova Corp pilots who are killed when all of their ships are destroyed by Ronan The Accuser’s ship the Dark Aster. They form a makeshift shield to stop the ship from colliding with Xandar, but it ends up breaking and all the ships are destroyed.
As you can see, the second most on-screen deaths come from Dracula Untold at 5,687, which is 78,184 deaths away from Guardians of the Galaxy. You can see how all the other movies compare beyond the top 10 with a roster of 653 movies tabulated for this data collection. To make it slightly easier, they only included movies with a kill count higher than 50.
My question is how they determined what constitutes an on-screen death, because surely there had to be more than 182 people killed in Star Wars: A New Hope. Wouldn’t everyone killed in the Death Star and Alderaan explosions be considered an on-screen death? Sure, it’s hard to determine just how many people were in those places at the time, but then again, how do they know the number of Nova Corp pilots killed? I’m not sure this adds up, but it’s some interesting data to see nonetheless.

A massive transformation is now underway now at Disney California Adventure park, as the Hollywood Tower Hotel (the building that houses Twilight Zone’s Tower Of Terror) is being remodeled into The Collector’s Fortress. The lettering has been removed, and the building is now covered with scaffolding. Tower of Terror will make its final drop later this year, which doesn’t give the Walt Disney Imagineers much time to transform the attraction into Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! opening Summer 2017.
To prepare for The Collector’s arrival in Disney California Adventure, the mouse house has released a new video giving us an extensive look at the new attraction building. Hit the jump to check out The Collector’s Fortress.
