Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Music Video

When the news came that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 would be arriving on home video this month, director James Gunn teased one wild special feature the likes of which had never been seen on any Marvel Studios movie before. That special feature has now arrived in its entirety online.

James Gunn created a Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 music video inspired by the original disco song “Guardians Inferno” by a group called The Sneepers, featuring none other than Star-Lord’s fictional father David Hasselhoff. This is a full fledged retro music video created in the same style as real hit disco songs from the 1970s, and it’s so weird and glorious. Watch it below! Read More »

jumanji

How do you go about updating Jumanji for 2017? By transforming that magical (and dangerous) board game of the title into a video game, of course. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a sort-of sequel to Joe Johnston’s 1995 film, with Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan stepping in for Robin Williams. Since that film has its fair share of nostalgic fans, the first trailer for this sequel/reboot is surely going to undergo some scrutiny.

So let’s get the scrutinizing started.

Robin Williams casts a large shadow on Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the upcoming sequel to Jumanji, the 1995 adventure film for which the now-passed comedian was beloved by many a ’90s kid.

While we knew that the sequel starring Dwayne Johnson planned to pay tribute to Williams, we weren’t sure if it would be in a passing reference or line of dialogue. But co-star Jack Black has revealed exactly how Williams’ character Alan Parrish will play into the plot of the Jumanji sequel. Hit the jump to learn about the Jumanji 2 Robin Williams tribute.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 trailer breakdown

If there’s one department where Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 tops its predecessor, it’s the action. The set pieces are more creative, more propulsive, and often more personal in the sequel. James Gunn‘s superhero pic’s most exciting set piece doesn’t involve crowds running in terror or buildings crumbling; it’s just two sisters, Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), going at it and showing little mercy.

Below, hear Gunn provide commentary in a Guardians of the Galaxy 2 scene breakdown.

Not all of the key players in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 were originally going to return for a second round. One character that was originally going to bite the dust? Nebula (Karen Gillan), the sadistic adopted daughter of Thanos (Josh Brolin) and stepsister to Gamora (Zoe Saldana).

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 junket

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend the press junket for Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in West Hollywood. Peter Sciretta and I will be publishing individual interviews with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, writer/director James Gunn, and actors Chris Pratt and Kurt Russell here on the site in the days leading up to the film’s release next week. In the meantime, I collected ten pieces of info we gleaned at the junket’s two press conferences, which featured key members of the creative team and nearly every major member of the movie’s cast.

In addition to the folks mentioned above, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillain, Sean Gunn, and Sylvester Stallone were all in attendance. Read on to discover what we learned from the spirited group interviews.

batgirl actress

Last week, it was revealed that Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and The Avengers director Joss Whedon is going to write and direct a Batgirl movie. It feels like a pitch-perfect match of storyteller and character – Whedon’s voice feels perfectly honed to tell the story of Barbara Gordon, the daughter of the Gotham City police commissioner who decides to take her father’s war on crime to the next level.

Of course, it’s still early days yet. Whedon has not cast his Batgirl. And that’s why we’re here. We have 17 suggestions.

Stan Lee cameo in Avengers Infinity War

A Marvel movie, even one that is produced outside of Marvel Studios, just wouldn’t feel complete without a cameo from comic creator Stan Lee. He’s a good luck charm, and his appearance is expected in pretty much every Marvel movie (though he hasn’t actually appeared in all of them). And it turns out, Stan Lee may have recently filmed a cameo for a Marvel Studios project coming much further down the line.

Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan, who plays Gamora’s troublesome sister Nebula, recently posted a picture to Instagram featuring her standing on a studio backlot with none other than Stan Lee. Furthermore, Karen Gillan just so happens to be wearing her Nebula make-up. Since Avengers: Infinity War is currently shooting in Atlanta (as well as Edinburgh, Scotland), many have assumed that Stan Lee recently shot his Infinity War cameo, but we’re not so sure that’s the case.

Your favorite galaxy-saving a-holes are back… or they’re about to be really soon, in any case. Marvel Studios has just dropped the new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer, which assembles the whole gang: Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel). In typical fashion, they’re flying by the seats of their pants — but if we know them, they’ll manage to get it together just in time to save the MCU from completely imploding.

Check out the latest Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer below, which includes our first look at Kurt Russell as Ego. Read More »

‘The Circle’ Trailer: Emma Watson Is Being Watched

The Circle

As evidenced by the popularity of Black Mirror, feeling uneasy about technology is just part and parcel of life in the developed world in 2017. Who among us hasn’t felt a twinge of anxiety about where our Facebook photos or Twitter posts could end up, or worried that someone could be watching through our built-in laptop cameras? We fret a bit, and then we keep sharing and posting and liking things anyway. Because what else are you going to do? Just not be a part of modern society?

In The Circle, that stress gets taken to a whole other level when a bright young woman named Mae (Emma Watson) is hired by a powerful tech company that looks a bit like Google, Facebook, and Apple all rolled into one. At first, it seems like a warm and welcoming place with a tight-knit corporate culture — but pretty soon, she starts to see the true cost of ultimate transparency. Tom Hanks plays the company’s founder, and John Boyega a mysterious colleague. Watch The Circle trailer below.  Read More »
