A lot has changed since I spoke to James Gunn roughly two weeks ago. In that time his new film, Guardians of the Galaxy, has become the one of the hottest topics in popular culture. It’s getting so popular, in fact, that Marvel has already greenlit Gunn’s next film, Guardians of the Galaxy 2. But two weeks ago, that wasn’t a certainty. The writer director was just happy that people, this journalist included, liked the film so much and wanted to talk to him about it.
In our interview, we talked about balancing the films impulses between action, humor and emotion; the fact he’s so active on social media and how Marvel feels about that; the introduction of Thanos (Josh Brolin) and some of his friends; Nathan Fillion‘s cameo; the humor in the movie, and more including the whereabouts of that classic blue Walkman. Read our James Gunn Guardians of the Galaxy interview below. Read More »

UPDATE: We’ve added the new, red band Sin City: A Dame to Kill For trailer to this post, which played at the end of the panel. Full panel coverage remains.
Robert Rodriguez and Comic Con go together like Spielberg and sharks. The two are forever linked because of the memorable panels he’s had on multiple films, primarily the first Sin City. Well Rodriguez was back this year with Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Damn to Kill For and he brought along his co-director and three of the film’s stars: Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson and Jessica Alba.
They showed a huge chunk of the beginning of the film, “Just Another Saturday Night,” and did a very interesting Q&A. Below, read a description of the opening scene and five cool things we learned at the Sin City 2 Comic Con panel. Read More »
Sin City is a place of excess, and the new Sin City: A Dame to Kill For trailer should fit right in.

Then there’s the violence, and the sex, and the splashes of color splattered across the stark black and white imagery. Looks like there’s a lot going on in this new trip to Sin City; watch the trailer below. Read More »

We got our very first glimpse of Thanos during the end credits of 2012’s The Avengers, and we know he’s likely to be the big bad in The Avengers 3. But in between, we’re going to be seeing him (voiced by Josh Brolin) in this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy. So what, exactly, will he be doing there?
A new report offers some big clues about how and how much he’ll figure into Guardians — and where he might go from there. Hit the jump to get the details. (Be aware that potential spoilers lay ahead.)

It’s a big day for Josh Brolin. Not only was he revealed as the actor voicing Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy and future Marvel films, he’s booked a gig in one of the next films from Prisoners and Enemy director Denis Villeneuve. The movie in question is Sicario, a “dark, morally complex thriller about a Tucson cop (Emily Blunt) who teams up with two men to head into Mexico and capture a drug lord” scripted by Taylor Sheridan.

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 »

Nearly a decade has passed since the last time we dropped in on Sin City, but it doesn’t look like a whole lot has changed since then. Life looks as grim and brutal as ever in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, which follows four noirish storylines as they unfold across the city.
Today, we have five new Sin City: A Dame to Kill For character posters to (re)introduce you the town’s gun-toting, knife-wielding residents, including Nancy (Jessica Alba), Marv (Mickey Rourke), Gail (Rosario Dawson), Dwight (Josh Brolin) and Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). Check ‘em out after the jump.

To fans, there are certain aspects of Spike Lee‘s Oldboy that have to be consistent with Chan-wook Park’s original. One of those is the hallway scene. In the original, Oh Dae-su wreaks havoc on a bunch of thugs in a hallway with nothing but a hammer. And it’s breathtaking sequence. Having seen trailers for the new film, you know the fight is in there; having seen the entire movie, I’ll say it takes the idea up a level. Literally.
In fact, Josh Brolin, who stars in the film, said the scene was so crucial and physically demanding, his personal physical preparation for just that scene (which is presented in one long take) informed his entire performance. Lee and crew prepped the scene for five weeks and they got it on the seventh take. Read Brolin’s story about the scene below. Read More »
