Watch the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Sneak Peek!

The first teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is finally here and it looks so bitchin’ and also there is a Baby Groot in it that will melt your heart. Check out the teaser above!

The film follows our hero misfits as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 sees the return of Chris Pratt as Star-Lord; Zoe Saldana as Gamora; Dave Bautista as Drax; Karen Gillan as Nebula; Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket; Michael Rooker as Yondu; and Sean Gunn as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Kurt Russell as Ego.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Adds Nathan Fillion

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is entering phase 3 and that includes Guardians of the Galaxy 2! According to reports the sequel just got a lot more bitchin’ as the cast has added science fiction veteran and hunky hero Nathan Fillion!

According to some on-set photos (not official photos mind you) it appears that Fillion is playing a character familiar to Marvel Comics fans, Simon Williams. The character is a long running character in the comic books and is an actor who has energy-based powers that give him super-strength, flight, and superhuman endurance.

In the photos we see a scene revolving what appears to be a “Simon Williams Film Festival” which takes place on Earth rather than out in the galaxy somewhere. It is also important to note that Williams once appeared as an Avenger in the comics, operating under the code name Wonder Man, so it may be possible that something could come up about it at some point. We won’t know for a while unfortunately.

Kurt Russell Officially Joins Guardians of the Galaxy Sequel

24998

The upcoming and highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy sequel has officially added Kurt Russell to the cast. The news was announced last week from a studio press release announcing the sequel’s start of production.

Unfortunately his role was not announced but we can hope that maybe, possibly, hopefully, Russell was cast as Star-Lord’s father. James Gunn had expressed interest last year in casting someone “prolific” in the role.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 is currently filming in Atlanta and includes other new cast members such as Elizabeth Debicki and The Knick’s Chris Sullivan. The sequel is scheduled for release on May 5, 2017.

Returning cast members include Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker and Karen Gillan, with James Gunn back in the writer and director’s chair.

Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-Animated-Series-Full-Poster

Since almost everyone in the entire world loved the movie Guardians of the Galaxy, it isn’t surprising that most people are also excited about the release of the animated series to accompany the film.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy premieres Sept. 26 on Disney XD and will have to hold us over until the next movie comes out but word is that it will definitely be worth fan’s time. The series will pick up where the film left off and follow the adventures of Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot and Rocket Raccoon. The show is likely to be a hit if it’s anything like its film predecessor, attracting not only a young audience but perhaps an older audience as well

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the sequel film, is set to come out on May 5, 2017. You can watch the trailer for the animated series below!

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Begins Shooting Next February

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is in process! Courtesy of James Gunn, the writer and director behind the first film, we have learned a few details about the upcoming sequel that everyone can’t wait for.

Despite being close-lipped on the plot for the sequel, Gunn revealed that the sequel will begin shooting next February at Pinewood Atlanta Studios. The filming location is a new one for the franchise. The first film filmed in London with several scenes taking place though out locations in the city. Currently, Captain America: Civil War is filming at the same Atlanta studio where Ant-Man also recently wrapped principal photography.

According to Gunn, the script is currently in progress and the film treatment for the sequel has already been sent over to Marvel. Though Gunn did not reveal any plot details for the sequel. However, he did say that Karen Gillan would reprise her role as Nebula, the arch nemesis and adopted sister of Gamora (Zoe Saldana) for an appearance in the film. He was also confident that her appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy 2 would not require her to shave her head like she did for the first film.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 has a premiere date for May 5, 2017.

Glenn Howerton Was Almost The Star-Lord

It is hard to imagine “Guardians of the Galaxy” without Chris Pratt in the starring role but director James Gunn revealed that it almost went to someone else. According to the director, the role almost went to “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” actor Glenn Howerton.

During GQ’s profile on Pratt for their “Men of the Year” segment, Gunn revealed that if Pratt hadn’t accepted the role in the Marvel film, that Howerton was the next in line. He said,

“Glenn came along a little bit later. But there was a good chance that, if I didn’t cast Chris, that I would’ve cast Glenn Howerton in the role.”

Howerton is most known for his role on the FXX series where he plays Dennis Reynolds while Pratt is famous for his portrayal in a comedy series as well, “Parks and Recreation” on NBC.

Pratt will return as Peter “Star-Lord” Quill in “Guardians of the Galaxy 2” in May 5, 2017.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” Soundtrack Hits No. 1 on Billboard 200

8744d26d4f46e56d2353bd2ee6baa763

Guardians of the Galaxy is not just one of the best movies of the year it also has one of the best soundtracks of the year (and that is not just a personal opinion.) The official soundtrack to the film has hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

The soundtrack is named “Awesome Mix Vol. 1.” It was given its name because the tape itself is almost a character within  Guardians of the Galaxy. The songs were put together by the main character’s mother on a cassette tape which he continually listens to on his Walkman from his childhood. All the songs except one are heard within the film.

The mixtape style compilation is made up of all previously released songs from between the 1960’s and 1970’s. Most songs were even on the Billboard Hot 100 at the time of their initial release.

“Awesome Mix Vol. 1” has so far sold nearly 110,000 copies since the week ending August 10. When it first debuted it hit the Billboard 100 at No. 3.

The track listing for “Awesome Mix Vol. 1” include:

Note: All songs—with the exception of “Spirit in the Sky”, which is played in the trailer—are featured in the film.

  • “Hooked on a Feeling” – Blue Swede
  • “Go All the Way” – Raspberries
  • “Spirit in the Sky” – Norman Greenbaum
  • “Moonage Daydream” – David Bowie
  • “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” – Elvin Bishop
  • “I’m Not in Love” – 10cc
  • “I Want You Back” – The Jackson 5
  • “Come and Get Your Love” – Redbone
  • “Cherry Bomb” – The Runaways
