It's all happening! Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' is dropping a trailer ... tomorrow night! That's right, after months of waiting, we'll finally get a full trailer for James Gunn's upcoming adaptation of the Marvel comic, and to tide you over until then, the studio has released some new photos featuring the intergalactic heroes, including one very popular talking raccoon.
"Everything is Awesome!"
Much has been said about our recent cinema kowtowing to nerds. From the massive success of 'The Avengers' to the ill-fated sci-fi odes of 'Paul.' (Anyone remember 'Paul?') The nerds have won. But whither the spaz?
Take a moment to remember the spaz. The hyperactive, highly-excitable enthusiast who can barely stay in one place for longer than sixty seconds and makes a little bit of a mess of things with his chaotic energy. 'The LEGO Movie' is the film for that person. From its opening frame to its surprisingly heartfelt conclusion, 'The LEGO Movie' has a bright and brash, candy-colored go go go dynamism that crackles with a glorious alacrity set to the tempo of the classroom's biggest and most disruptive spaz.
Chris Pratt is a mini-figure living in the not-so-mini world of 'The LEGO Movie,' which brings together some of your favorite LEGO characters to life on the big screen and gives them the voices of Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Liam Neeson and more! Warner Bros. has released a batch of nine new clips from the animated film so you can preview all the silly humor one can expect from a movie starring Andy Dwyer from 'Parks and Recreation.'
To be a heart-on-your-sleeve weepie in 2013, you've got to have some far-fetched gimmick. 'About Time' has time travel, 'Safe Haven' had ghosts and 'Delivery Man' has Vince Vaughn as an anonymous sperm donor hunted down by hundreds of his young-adult offspring. The mechanics of the plot are so ludicrous that audiences should be forgiven for shouting, “No, sorry, it wouldn't work that way!” back at the screen. But one has to give the movie credit for its sheer audacity. It refused to offer an explanation for its instigating illogic. Great character actor Damian Young gets the unenviable task of delivering the hook with the phrase “certain complications arose ...”
The two names that have popped up most as the contenders for the lead roles in 'Jurassic World' have been Bryce Dallas Howard and Josh Brolin. But while Howard recently confirmed her involvement, it appears that Brolin won't be making a trip to Isla Nubar, and his shoes may be filled by Chris Pratt.
With all of LEGO's various movie-themed toy lines, video games and TV series, it seemed like the only thing missing from the brand was a feature-length animated movie -- and now it's on the way. Warner Bros. has released a full 'The LEGO Movie' trailer, featuring practically every one of our favorite figurines come to life.
Part of the allure of seeing Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' brought to life on the big screen are the live-action renderings of Groot, the tree-like alien, and Rocket Raccoon, a glunslinging, talking raccoon. While Vin Diesel, who's voicing the former, has already given us some incite and details on his superhero character, Bradley Cooper has remained quiet on the subject. Fortunately, 'Guardians' leader Chris Pratt (Star-Lord) offered up the details.
Very soon, our long national nightmare will be over as 'Parks and Recreation' returns for season 6 with hour-long September 26 premiere "London," the title of which sells itself. Now, the first photos and promos of the 'Parks' team's trip across the pond have emerged, so any guesses what Ron Swanson thinks of Big Ben?
'Guardians of the Galaxy' is movie that feels like it's built on a foundation of interesting and bizarre creative decisions, but casting Chris Pratt in the lead role of Star Lord feels particularly inspired. Although known mostly for his comedic chops, we have a really good feeling about the 'Parks and Recreation' star heading up a team of science fiction superheroes, especially with director James Gunn at the helm. Pratt recently spoke with IGN about the super-secretive production, sharing details about the film's tone and his role in the cinematic Marvel universe.
