2013 was an amazing year for movies. There are still a couple big films from late in the year that I haven’t yet seen (my second cross-country move in the span of a year, left me scrambling to stay current for the year’s final quarter) and yet I’ve still got a list of favorite 2013 films that includes more than fifteen movies. With any luck I can spend the next evenings catching the couple last big ones to get that “best of ’13″ list out the door.
In the meantime, as many are I’m looking forward to 2014. The next year is absolutely packed-out for blockbusters, but there’s a lot of (potentially) good stuff to enjoy in 2014. Below is my own attempt to organize the coming year in movies, based on what we know right now.

The movies of 2013 were great and we’re all anxiously anticipating 2015, but let’s not overlook 2014. While the upcoming calendar isn’t packed as full of blockbusters that make film fans salivate, 2014 has some pretty awesome looking movies from several of the best filmmakers in the world. It has its share of massive franchise films too and while maybe they’re not Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Terminator or Batman fighting Superman, I’ll take Christopher Nolan, Paul Thomas Anderson, Cameron Crowe, Wes Anderson, the Wachowksis and David Fincher any day.

This whole business of Vin Diesel being in Guardians of the Galaxy has been really interesting to watch, because while Diesel talked about playing the tree-alien Groot for a long time, the guy wasn’t actually signed to do anything with Marvel for much of that period. Not that he wasn’t always a pretty ideal choice, even if his one line in the movie is “I am Groot.”
Now Diesel is officially in the picture, and director James Gunn and Marvel have released official stuff confirming so. Gunn posted the photo above this evening, and then Marvel followed up with a press release. Gunn also had a few comments, and you can read those below.

Now that Guardians of the Galaxy has finished shooting, what’s director James Gunn up to? Editing, of course, and hitting the red carpet for the next Marvel film to talk all about it. Gunn was at this week’s Thor: The Dark World premiere and did several red carpet videos where he both showed his incredible passion for the project, and also dropped a few nuggets of information.
Below, watch Gunn talk about the painstaking voice work Bradley Cooper is doing as Rocket Raccoon, evade conversations about Vin Diesel playing Groot, tease when we might see a trailer, and then discuss something that should be treated as a major spoiler for Thor: The Dark World. Read More »
