Guardians of the galaxy deleted scene

Guardians of the Galaxy already involves more dancing to classic rock than all of the other Marvel movies combined. However, it seems there was yet another musical moment that wound up on the cutting room floor.

Director James Gunn spilled the details on a Guardians of the Galaxy deleted scene showing a prison guard (played by Spencer Wilding) giving in to the awesomeness of ’70s Scottish band Pilot. Hit the jump for his behind-the-scenes photo and description.

Chris Pratt Guardians of the Galaxy

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard that Bungie released their latest video game last week: Destiny. Gamers of all ages have been buying the game, tweeting about it, posting images and their praise.

In fact, it sounds a lot like what happened six weeks ago when James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy was released. People went nuts for the wacky, fun, Marvel adventure leading it to become the highest grossing film of the year.

Now, some intrepid souls by the name of Somewhat Awesome Games has recreated the opening of Guardians of the Galaxy in Destiny. And it’s kind of amazing. Check out the Guardians of the Galaxy Destiny mash-up video below. Read More »

Eric Tan Guardians Of The Galaxy Anime

While we might have to wait a little while longer for a proper Guardians Of The Galaxy anime, Marvel is going to bring the galactic superhero group to Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers in Japan. According to IO9, the “ridiculous, Beyblade/Pokémon-esque anime series” is “designed solely to sell Marvel merch to young kids.” And next week our new favorite group of space misfits are set to appear on the anime series.

I should note that the art above is not from the anime episode but actually an amazing piece done by one of our favorite artists, Eric Tan, who created the anime-style art of Big Hero 6 which will be sold in Disney Stores at some point. Also note the piece is flipped sideways to fit our header image guidelines. Which brings us to the question: what will the real Guardians of the Galaxy anime designs look like? Hit the jump to see a photo and video.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 director

The summer movie season is officially over and that means its time to wrap up our 2014 Summer Movie Wager. If you are unclear, every year a group of us attempt to predict which films will be the top ten of the summer season. You get points for being as accurate as possible.

Like most summers, 2014 was filled with surprises and familiarity. The biggest surprise? Guardians of the Galaxy. In just four weeks, it outgrossed every other film of the summer including massive hits like Transformers: Age of Extinction, X-Men: Days of the Future Past and more. What wasn’t a surprise? Almost everything else. Of the three contestants (myself, Peter Sciretta and Jeff Cannata) we all got at least 9 of the 10 films in the top ten right. The order was another story and is what finally declared a winner.

Below, check out the final point totals and watch our wrap-up video podcast.  Read More »

Japanese Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy is the highest-grossing film of 2014 in the US so far, and is doing well overseas. It hasn’t even opened in some markets, which is why there are new Japanese Guardians of the Galaxy TV spots. And these spots are great. They focus on Rocket, Groot, and the bunch of losers as a whole. Each spot opens with some normal images of raccoons or trees, before going to the familiar images of our weird heroes messing up jumpsuited aliens in the prison sequence. The energy is great, and the super-enthusiastic Japanese voiceover doesn’t hurt at all. Read More »

Guardians of the Galaxy concept art

The Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t exactly like our real universe (for one thing, it has superheroes), but it’s close enough that the settings generally look familiar. The Avengers’ New York City is our New York City, give or take a Stark Tower.

But this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy was the first Marvel movie to take place almost entirely off-Earth, and that meant Marvel had to create entirely new worlds from scratch. Naturally, the creative team ran with the opportunity, providing us with some truly stunning settings. Today, we have several new pieces of scenic Guardians of the Galaxy concept art, highlighting the Nova Corps capital planet Xandar.

Hit the jump to take a look. (Warning: Some spoilers ahead. But you probably figured that out already, right?)
