Watch: Meet The Star Lord In This New Clip From Marvel’s ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’

Legendary Outlaw
Meet the Star Lord

Back in February we got to check out a bunch of posters and promo videos for the forthcoming Marvel Comics movie Guardians of the Galaxy and today we get to see a just-released new clip of footage from the film. As you can see in the video embedded above, actor Chris Pratt introduces himself to the alien world as Star Lord (whose real name is Peter Quill) … and then the action takes off from there. Guardians of the Galaxy opens in theaters on August 1 so even tho we have some bit of time to wait before we can see the movie in full, I can assure you that it is going to be worth the wait :)

Watch: Filming Has Already Begun On ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’, Casting Is Near Completion

"It's all about the screenplay"
"Screenplay, Screenplay, Screenplay"

Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn sat down for a new interview where he was asked questions about the upcoming new Star Wars film and over the course of his chat, he revealed that filming has already begun and that casting (the toughest part of the process, he says) is almost finished. The video embedded above is just under 2 minutes long but it does provide some new information about Star Wars: Episode VII. As you may recall, we learned previously that the new film will pick up where the last film left off … 35 years later. Set for a December 2015 release, the folks at Disney sure do have their work cut out for them. I just hope they don’t eff it all up.

Watch: ‘You Have No Idea What’s Coming’ In This ‘Extended Look’ Trailer For ‘Godzilla’

Monster Mash
"It was not a natural disaster"

Last month we got to see the first international trailer released for the upcoming remake of Godzilla and today we get to see a newer trailer that gives us an “extended look” at the film. As you can see in the video embedded above, this new trailer gives us a bit of backstory information on Bryan Cranston‘s character in film and we learn how he becomes the main character in the story. Godzilla makes his appearance in the video a few times but, as we’ve come to expect, we don’t get to see him very clearly … save for a few glimpses. We do get to see lots of new footage that gives the story a bit more context. I’m still very interested in seeing this movie when it is released next month on May 23, even moreso from the look of this new trailer. Do you think Godzilla looks good enough to see in theaters?

Wait, What?! The ‘Jem And The Holograms’ Movie Is Filming In Just 3 Weeks!?!

Truly Outrageous ... but NOT in a good way :(

Ugh … so, remember the surprising news that we heard a couple of weeks ago about plans for a live-action movie adaptation of Jem and the Holograms? Well, today we learn more surprising news … and it’s not good news at all. It turns out that filming production for this movie, 29 years in the making, is going to start in about 3 weeks. HELLO?! THREE DAMN WEEKS? Not only does that sound like not a lot of time to begin production of a movie as important as Jem but we also learn that the show’s creator Christy Marx isn’t being included in the film’s production. I knew it sounded like a bad idea to have 3 men make a Jem movie. Now it’s beginning to sound like my fears were spot on. UGH! More »

Is That James Franco/17-Year Old Girl Story A Marketing Ploy For His New Movie ‘Palo Alto’?

HMMMMMMMM
Franco plays an older man who seduces a young girl

Earlier today we learned that 35 year old actor James Franco allegedly tried to hook up with a 17 year old girl in NYC this week … on April 1 (April Fool’s Day), actually. The story came complete with video and screenshots of DMs and text messages between James and a 17 year old girl visiting the US with her mother from Scotland. It occurred to me that a few days ago, we got our first look at the first trailer for Franco‘s new movie Palo Alto (which is based on his book of short stories) and in that movie, James plays a thirtysomething teacher who gets involved romantically with a teenage girl at his school. HMMM. Could it be that the story about Franco trying to seduce a 17 year old is actually an elaborate marketing prank to promote the movie? Let’s discuss below. More »

Watch: Scarlett Johansson Plays A Drug-Fueled Super Hero In Her New Film ‘Lucy’

A new thriller from Luc Besson
She's a Brain

This Friday, Scarlett Johansson will play the comic book super hero Black Widow in Captain America: The Winter Solider (which I loved and think YOU will love, too) and she will play a super human-like/probably alien-esque character in another film due out this year titled Under The Skin. Today we get to see the first trailer for yet another new film that will be released in August that stars ScarJo and as you can see above, she kicks all kinds of ass in this movie as well. The trailer is pretty self-explanatory and it seems interesting enough (tho it does remind me a bit of the 2011 film Limitless which stars Bradley Cooper). Because it was directed by Luc Besson, it’s bound to have lots of great action scenes. Who knew that Scarlett would eventually become a big name action movie star? I think I like this side of her very much, don’t you?
