The 'Planet Hulk' movie rumors have been going strong since over a year ago, despite almost everyone involved in the Marvel universe - from Joss Whedon to Kevin Feige - categorically denying the existence of such a movie. Well, you can add another denial on the 'Planet Hulk' pile.
We've already seen 17 minutes of Marvel's upcoming space opera, 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' including an extended scene and one badass sizzle reel. However, this new sci-fi world still has more nooks and crannies to explore, and 27 new photos from the film have debuted to help us traverse unknown terrain.
On Monday night, July 7, Marvel teamed with the folks at IMAX to screen 17 minutes of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' for fans ahead of the film's August 1 release. Tickets and seating were first come, first served, so you can imagine the turnout, but we were there to take in all the never-before-seen footage. And boy, was there a lot to take in.
Directed by James Gunn, 'Guardians of the Galaxy' stars Chris Pratt as the thief-turned-hero Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as assassin Gamora, Dave Bautista as the crazed Drax The Destroyer, Bradley Cooper as the trigger-happy Rocket and Vin Diesel as the tree of a few words Groot, as they band together to stop the villains plans of Thanos and Ronan The Accuser. It's one of Marvel's most ambitious films to date, taking the universe established with The Avengers into outer space, and here's everything we learned from the 17-minute 'Guardians of the Galaxy: An IMAX 3D First Look.'
Ever since the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' trailer brilliantly used Blue Swede's "Hooked on a Feeling" to introduce us to Star-Lord, Drax, Gamora, Groot and Rocket, we've been waiting patiently to see what else was included on Peter Quill's "Awesome Mix Vol. 1" (also known as the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' soundtrack). Today, we have confirmation on the track listing and it's pretty amazing all these songs have somehow found their way into a big superhero movie.
'Guardians of the Galaxy' is Marvel's most ambitious effort yet, taking the Cinematic Universe established with 'The Avengers' movies to the farthest reaches of the universe. For cryin' out loud, there's a talking raccoon and a Hulk-like tree! We all know you want to get a taste of what director James Gunn cooked up, and now you can in select IMAX theaters across the country.
Nathan Fillion, who has appeared in director James Gunn's previous films 'Slither' and 'Super,' as well as one of the director's 'PG Porn' shorts, will indeed be making an appearance in 'Guardians of the Galaxy' -- though in a much smaller capacity than you might have assumed.
Hands down, Rocket Raccoon and Groot are the heart and soul of Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' Voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, respectively, the fury gunslinger with an attitude and the Ent on steroids are big selling points for this intergalactic adventure, and they two grace the first of a slew of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' posters to come.
'Guardians of the Galaxy' is being post-converted into 3D for its upcoming August release, and will be shown in the IMAX format as well -- which is standard operating procedure for tentpole titles these days. But director James Gunn is working on both transfers, and is trying to make the IMAX presentation more engrossing by featuring well-placed shifting aspect ratios.
While the Miami Heat and the Spurs face off during the NBA Finals game tonight, a new 'Guardians of the Galaxy' TV spot previewing the upcoming face-off between these outer-space bandits and Thanos' minions will be unleashed. Ahead of the big game, Marvel revealed the new look, so it's time
