Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - Adolescent Groot

People sure did love Baby Groot (Vin Diesel), and for good reasons. Just look at him. There’s something immediately endearing about him. Even his childlike eyes go a long way to make him adorable. Adolescent Groot, not Teen Groot, is a little less adorable and more irritable. In a fun post-credits sequence, Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) gave him a talking to about his messy room, but in a longer version of the scene, he also tries desperately to convince Adolescent Groot of his coolness.

Below, watch the extended Guardians of the Galaxy 2 credits scene.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Gag Reel

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is coming to Digital HD on August 8th and will follow on Blu-ray and DVD on August 22nd. The home video release of the Marvel Studios sequel will be chock full of special features for fans to dig into, and some of those supplementary materials are making their way online in an effort to convince you to add it to your library.

This week, you can watch part of the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 gag reel, showing how hard of a time Sylvester Stallone has saying the word “Ravager” and how elegant Chris Pratt and Kurt Russell look flying on wires for the climactic battle. In addition, some footage of the recording sessions that Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel had to voice Rocket Raccoon and Baby Groot has surfaced online, and it’s pretty entertaining to watch.

The Fate of the Furious director's cut

The director’s cut of The Fate of the Furious is 13 minutes longer. This franchise has a more-is-more attitude, which generally works in its favor, so even more of Dom and the family probably sounds all right for fans of the series. Director F. Gary Gray says his cut has more action and humor, but also punches up some of the characters and provides some breathing room.

Below, the Straight Outta Compton director discusses The Fate of the Furious director’s cut.

guardians of the galaxy 2

Marvel Studios has gone on a near-miraculous run of making perfect choices when it comes to casting their leading roles. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch…the list goes on. But from the very beginning, when they cast Jeff Bridges in the first Iron Man, they’ve also been terrific at luring A-list talent to fill out the supporting roles in their movies. I consider that to be a critical component of their overall success.

The latest example of spot-on casting? Securing Kurt Russell as Ego, the long-lost father of Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

I had the opportunity to sit down with Russell – whose body of work makes him a pitch perfect fit for this character – at the film’s press junket in West Hollywood. We spoke about his approach to playing such a strange being (Ego is a living planet, for those who don’t know), the concept of digital de-aging, the most surprising aspect of making the 1993 western classic Tombstone, and more. Read on for our Kurt Russell interview.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 review

At times, the plot almost feels nonexistent in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Whether during an extended gag, a moment of backstory, or a sincere heart-to-heart, writer-director James Gunn is clearly more invested in character than the sequel’s simple doomsday plot. There’s a looseness, almost a shagginess, to the Marvel sequel that allows the characters to shine brightest in some eye-popping environments.

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.
