We occasionally see IMAX film presentations in which the film’s aspect ratio changes from scene to scene. Typically this is due to a shift between footage shot on digital or 35mm film and native IMAX footage. So we’ve seen the ratio shift in films like Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and The Dark Knight Rises. Outside the IMAX space, we’ve also seen the aspect ratio shift used for purely artistic purposes, as in recent films The Grand Budapest Hotel and X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Now, Guardians of the Galaxy will fit somewhere in between those practices. Director James Gunn has revealed that IMAX 3D presentations of the film will feature shifting aspect ratios, “in a way that makes the experience even fuller and more encompassing.” Read his note below. Read More »
According to writer/director James Gunn, Thursday night’s NBA Finals game will include both 30- and 60-second commercials for his upcoming Marvel adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy. No need to wait for Lebron James and Tony Parker to suit up, though, as the first spot has already appeared online. It has a few awesome new shots including a few of Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser (he’s the hooded guy at the beginning) and Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) affirming the badassness of the Guardians. It’s super cool.
And if that’s not exciting enough, the Poster Posse – an international group of artists who do art based on the same upcoming movies – have released the first batch of art for Guardians of the Galaxy. There’s some truly beautiful and interesting stuff to be seen, including an already iconic mash-up of the 1977 one sheet for Star Wars by Matt Ferguson. Check out the Guardians of the Galaxy fan art and TV spot below. Read More »
We saw a tease of Marvel’s big bad Thanos at the end of The Avengers, but the purple-skinned alien has been absent from the screen since then. What we do know is he’s in Guardians of the Galaxy, and there is reason to believe he plays a part in the eventual third Avengers film as well. (He is not a big part of Age of Ultron, according to Joss Whedon.) We also know the actor who played Thanos in that Avengers post-credits stinger won’t play him in upcoming movies. So who will?
Latino Review reporst Oscar-nominated actor Josh Brolin, star of The Goonies, W., No Country For Old Men, Oldboy and more is playing the baddest man in the galaxy. Read more about Thanos Guardians of the Galaxy below. Read More »

Last September, I traveled to London to visit the set of Marvel Studios’ upcoming comic book adaptation Guardians of the Galaxy. While Disney is not letting me write about what I saw on my visit to the set of James Gunn‘s latest, they are allowing us to post our roundtable interview with the film’s star Chris Pratt who plays an American pilot named Peter Quill aka Star-Lord who “finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan in the far reaches of space.” You can read the whole Chris Pratt set interview now after the jump. Disney has even provided us with a few new behind the scenes photos from the film as well.
