It’s a new year, which means it’s time to get hyped for the latest batch of Marvel superhero movies hitting the multiplex in the next few months. In 2017 we’re getting the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, which will introduce us to, among others, Kurt Russell’s Ego the Living Planet, aka Star-Lord’s long-lost dad. You might know him best as a really really big glowing head in the comics, but in the movie he’ll also have a human form. Probably a little easier on the budget.

After transitioning from charming Doctor Who companion to charming movie star with roles in Guardians of the Galaxy and Oculus, Karen Gillan is moving behind the camera for her feature directorial debut.

Hollywood Films’ inaugural five-film slate, which boasts mid-budget indie projects with a focus on female and minority-driven titles.

Co-Sign: James Gunn Wants Nebula to Get Her Own ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Spinoff

James Gunn has some really good ideas, but his latest might just be the best yet. While answering a fan’s question on Twitter, the Guardians of the Galaxy director suggested that there’s one character from the films who deserves their own solo spinoff movie — and no, it’s not Baby Groot (although Baby Groot’s Outer Space Adventures sounds like a pretty dope Pixar short, to be honest).

It’s hard not to get a little bit excited for the new Jumanji movie — with a cast that includes Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan, they could be making a live-action movie about Thomas the Tank Engine and we’d still watch it. So while we wait for the first official trailer, Johnson and Co. have been keeping us up to date with a steady stream of behind-the-scenes photos and videos, the latest of which offers some insight into the difficulties of filming a big budget movie in Hawaii (spoiler: it’s not that difficult).

Up until now, the cast of Dwayne Johnson’s new Jumanji movie (which he says is a sequel, not a reboot) has been dominated entirely by men, so today’s casting update is a fairly refreshing one. If you were concerned that Jumanji might just star a bunch of dudes (charming dudes, but still), you can stop worrying because Karen Gillan is officially the first woman to join the cast.

Karen Gillan Enters ‘The Circle’ With Tom Hanks and Emma Watson

by Britt Hayes September 1, 2015 @ 7:48 PM
The cast of James Ponsoldt’s The Circle is shaping up to be a fairly exciting lineup: Tom Hanks, Emma Watson and John Boyega were previously announced for the adaptation of Dave Eggers’ novel, and now he’s gone and cast your favorite former Doctor Who companion and Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan. Ugh, this movie sounds terrible.

HBO has served a few volleys of upcoming tennis mockumentary 7 Days in Hell, following its SXSW debut last year, but with a July 11 premiere fast on the rise, so too is promotion heating up. Watch Jon Snow and Andy Samberg go at it in the full star-studded trailer for HBO’s 7 Days in Hell!

‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’ Will Begin Filming in 2016, Karen Gillan’s Nebula to Return

by Britt Hayes April 5, 2015 @ 1:18 PM
James Gunn stays pretty active on social media and is as open as he can be with fans about his work on Guardians of the Galaxy, which goes against the typical secrecy of Marvel Studios. Then again, Guardians isn’t your typical Marvel film — the superhero space opera was a bit risky for the studio, but the weird and wonderful film really hit a home run with fans and critics alike. Gunn is currently working on the script for the sequel, and as usual, he has a few updates to offer.
