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. Check out the original Awesome Mix Guardians of the Galaxy songs below. Read More »

It feels like every single week there’s a new story about Baby Groot. Whether it be a new toy version of the character, a piece of art, or discussion of the scene itself, everyone just wants more information about the hilarious ending to Guardians of the Galaxy. If you’ve been on the fence about which version of the character to buy, you’re in luck. Hot Toys has revealed their version of Baby Groot and it’s pretty easy to say this is a close to definitive as we have. Unfortunately, it’s only 1:4 scale (which is so disappointing. Not 1:1?) but comes with interchangeable heads and bendable arms so you can set him in whatever dancing pose you like. Check out the Hot Toys Baby Groot toy below. Read More »

“Legendary Battle” by Sean Sumagaysay
Yesterday we learned that Sony was discussing a possible crossover movie between their successful 21 Jump Street franchise and their evergreen Men in Black series. This is obviously the next evolution of the Marvel-style universe trend that all of Hollywood is chasing.

After the jump I list the best opportunities for big screen movie crossovers.
