The biggest question to come out of 2014’s blockbuster superhero science fiction film Guardians of the Galaxy has nothing to do with Thanos or Infinity Gems. It has to do with the end credits sequence. No, not the post credits sequence in the Collector’s museum, but the fun sequence at the front of the credits involving potted baby Groot dancing to the Jackson Five’s “I Want You Back”. So the question is: why didn’t baby Groot want Drax to see him dancing? He froze every time Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) looked over. Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn finally gives us an answer.

From August 2014 until January 2015, Guardians of the Galaxy was the highest grossing domestic film of 2014. In November 2014, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 was released and by late January 2015, it overtook the Marvel film. Then, in December 2014, Warner Bros. opened American Sniper. The first few weekends were above average for limited release numbers but then it opened wide and grossed a staggering $93 million over three days.

There are so many complaints about the Golden Globes and the Oscars each year, I’m surprised there isn’t more love for the MTV Movie Awards. Granted, teens rule the day and while the nominees definitely line up more with the moviegoing populous, the winners generally skew younger. So films like Twilight and The Hunger Games regularly beat geek movies and Oscar contenders.
Case in point, the 2015 MTV Movie Awards nominations. Guardians of the Galaxy, Neighbors and The Fault in Our Stars lead all the nominees with seven each. Guess which one I’m betting wins the most? Still, it’s a fun list of nominations including categories like Best Fight, Best WTF Moment and Best On-Screen Transformation.
The 2015 MTV Movie Awards will air on April 12, hosted by Amy Schumer. Below, see the nominations. Read More »
