Sorry, Star-Lord. Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was just passed by ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ as the highest grossing film of 2014. And, making that feat all the more impressive: ‘Mockingjay’ reached that mark in just 62 days, without the help of 3D or IMAX.

The post-credits scene for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ featured a rather unexpected comic book character, which inspired fan speculation over whether or not this particular character would make another appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While we won’t see him on the big screen again anytime soon, he is getting his very own comic book sequel to help explain how he ended up in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’

James Gunn had a very busy 2014 with the release of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ Marvel’s superhero space opera, which went on to become one of the hugest films of the year. But even though Gunn was preoccupied with Marvel business, that didn’t keep him from seeing a lot of great films besides the one he directed, and the director has finally revealed his favorite films of 2014. Unsurprisingly, ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ is one of them.

Aside from the larger connections in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s one thing that ties every one of their superhero films together, regardless of which studio is behind it: a cameo from comic book creator Stan Lee. Even ‘Big Hero 6’ gave Lee his own cameo in animated form. But James Gunn apparently almost disrupted this long-standing Marvel movie tradition, as the director revealed that he originally planned to kill off Stan Lee for his cameo in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy.’

Things have been pretty intense over the last few weeks, as hackers attacked Sony and threatened terrorist action if the studio released ‘The Interview.’ You may not get to see ‘The Interview’ anytime soon, but we still have plenty of movies to look forward to, like ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2.’ As director James Gunn reveals, Sony isn’t the only studio impacted by all of this hacking business.

The 148 Best (And Worst) Movies Of 2014 (According to Mike Ryan)

I enjoy reading top ten lists, but I don’t particularly like making a top ten list—which does nothing as far as an explanation as to why I decided to do a Top 147 list (or Bottom 147 list, if that’s more your thing). I covered four film festivals in 2014, so I saw more than 147 movies, but these are the 147 movies I saw that came out in a theater this year. (I realize ‘The Interview’ is now not coming out, but, whatever, it’s on here too.) I am only one human being, so I didn’t see every movie that came out this year—Where’s ‘Noah’? I never saw ‘Noah’—but I think I saw quite a few! Anyway, here they all are. (I only wrote about a few of them because I am not a crazy person.)

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Director James Gunn Reveals Original “Awesome Mix Vol. 1”

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was such a fun and original film with director James Gunn’s fingerprints all over it, and one of the best, most exciting films of the year. That’s due in part to the wise music choices featured on the soundtrack and Peter Quill/Star-Lord’s mixtape. Gunn previously released “Awesome Mix Vol. 0,” which featured the music he played for the cast on set, and now the director is back with another mixtape: the original version of “Awesome Mix Vol. 1.”
