Over the last few days, James Gunn has been sharing some photos from the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 cast rehearsals, featuring a very grumpy Michael Rooker and a cast of total screw-ups who have to learn a thing or two from Dave Bautista. We still have a while to wait before we see the cast back in costume as the unlikely group of heroes, but these rehearsal photos make that wait a little easier.
It might be for the best that this scene never made it into the final cut of Guardians of the Galaxy, since it might have inspired a terrible mash-up t-shirt with a drunk Drax in Joker makeup asking, “You wanna know how I got these scars?” Still, if you were curious about Drax’s tattoos in Guardians, this deleted scene has your answer.
You’re probably going to want to get the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase Two Collection Blu-ray box set anyway, what with the six movies and 166 hours of extra material and all, but if you were somehow unconvinced, we offer up this video as a taste of what you get when you make that purchase. The video above is never before seen footage of Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista auditioning for Guardians of the Galaxy back in early 2013.
In accordance with the commandment from god that any and all film properties that enjoyed popularity during the early ‘90s must be exhumed and capitalized upon, a new generation shall soon receive a Kickboxer of their very own, to be titled Kickboxer: Vengeance.
As we prepare for the latest James Bond outing to hit theaters next week, Sony has been saturating fans with new TV spots and clips from Spectre — and while it’s easy to ignore most of them, the latest clip from Bond’s 24th outing is really, really, really good. How good? Well, have you ever wanted to watch James Bond duke it out with Bautista on a train? You have, you just never knew it until now.
Robert De Niro has occasionally dipped his toe in the serene waters of “out of professional f—s to give,” but with the trailer for his latest film it would appear that he’s fully submerged himself for this one. Heist looks like a bland ripoff of Casino and Ocean’s 11, with De Niro once again playing a gangster who runs a casino, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Dave Bautista playing the guys who attempt to rob him.
You probably know Dave Bautista as Drax, the knife-wielding, overly literal member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Or maybe you know Bautista from his days in WWE, where he was a frequent world champion and last left the company with maybe the funniest wave goodbye ever. Perhaps you’re a huge fan of The Man with the Iron Fists (but I kind of doubt it). However you know Bautista, you probably think of him as an intense, brooding badass. But apparently there’s a Dave Bautista we don’t know, Bautista who’s ... a huge Star Wars nerd?
While we very, very patiently await the full trailer for Spectre, the production has been keeping us occupied with photos and video blogs from the set, for which we should all be very, very grateful. The latest video update focuses on the classy, shiny (and very expensive) cars from the film, as well as the exciting chase sequences — because what is a Bond film without a good ol’ fashioned chase?
As Spectre continues filming, we are treated today to another dispatch from the Bond 24 set. The last video blog focused on the snowy shoot on the top of the Austrian mountains and this new installment features new behind the scenes footage of Daniel Craig as James Bond as well as Ralph Fiennes (M), Naomie Harris (Moneypenny), and Ben Whishaw (Q).
There have been plenty of rumors swirling around the upcoming (and long-gestating) Highlander reboot. As you’ll recall, a while back it was rumored that Summit was gunning for Tom Cruise to play the mentor role originated by Sean Connery in the 1986 film. Today’s rumor is a bit more reliable: Guardians of the Galaxy actor and wrestling superstar Dave Bautista has been cast as the villainous Kurgan. And you know, that sounds about right.
