We'd previously heard that the 'Bond 24' filmmakers wanted the villain for the upcoming sequel to be unlike the modern day villains and instead a throwback to the big hulking henchmen like Jaws or Oddjob. The casting call was looking for "an imposing, extremely physically fit actor" over 6'2" tall. Not a ton of guys like that around, but the director Sam Mendes didn't have to look further than the biggest movie of the year.
We all know what you've been thinking since you saw Rocket Raccoon and dancing Groot steal our hearts on the big screen: when can we take home Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' on Blu-ray and DVD, or even Digital Download?

They come with an exclusive sneak peek at 'Avengers 2'!
Dave Bautista's Drax the Destroyer turned out to be a highlight in a film with many highlights, with the wrestler-turned-thespian selling the character's physicality and dry humor with a grace that you wouldn't suspect from a WWE superstar. So, it's not that surprising that new internet buzz suggests that his Marvel deal is currently being restructured to ensure his involvement in future films, specifically 'The Avengers 3.'
By now, everyone is familiar with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, where people heed the call to throw buckets of ice water on themselves to spread awareness of ALS and raise donations to support The ALS Association.

And while they're superhero superstars now, that wasn't always the case -- it may be hard to believe now, but there was a time when you didn't know their names. Join us as we take a look back at the cast of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' to see what they were up to before they were famous.
If you've already made plans to check out James Gunn's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' as soon as the latest entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe hits theaters on August 1st, you probably don't need any extra nudge to get your butt into a cushy multiplex seat.

There's this movie -- just a space opera in the Marvel Cinematic Universe -- that's coming out next week: 'Guardians of the Galaxy.' Maybe you've heard of it.

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.

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.'
