The Empire Strikes Back is one of the gold standards filmmakers aspire to when making a sequel. And though both Chris Pratt and Kevin Feige swear it was never mentioned during the making of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, the films share a lot of similarities. A lot of similarities.
Nostalgia is a huge part of the charm in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. There’s the classic pop music, of course, but also the reverence Chris Pratt’s character Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, has for the pop culture of his childhood, things the character loved before he was snatched off Earth. This posed a problem…
As the star of one of Marvel’s biggest franchises, no one would fault Chris Pratt for crapping all over DC. In fact, from the famously brazen and charismatic star, you might expect it. But when asked about the rival franchise, Pratt was objective but honest.
The biggest problem with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Vol. 1, if you will, was such a huge, surprise hit that most of the massive audiences who will flock to see Vol. 2 will all want to relive watching the first film. They’ll get their wish, sometimes, but other times Vol.…
It’s hard to believe it’s been over three years since audiences were graced with The Lego Movie. The film was so smart, funny, and successful that of course a sequel almost immediately went into the works. We’re still about two years from its release, but star Chris Pratt told us the latest on the project.
Before Mark Millar’s Chrononauts was even released in 2015, the comic had already been tapped for a movie adaptation. However, as is so often the case these days, the updates stopped there. Fast-forward to today and there is finally some movement on the project.
In Avengers: Infinity War, the Avengers are going to meet the Guardians of the Galaxy. We all more or less knew that, but to hear Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige come out and say it in this brand new teaser video will make the hairs on your arm stand up straight.
The excitement for the second Guardians of the Galaxy movie has been palpable. But when the sequel begins, that enthusiasm is strictly in the audience. As we learned on the set of the movie, things are not going smoothly for Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot.
Now that Passengers is out, there’s been a lot of talk of how the trailers and commercials hid what the film is about. It’s not just a film about two extremely attractive people stuck together on a spaceship—it’s about something much more sinister and uncomfortable.
You might expect a big budget science fiction movie, starring two of the most famous people on the planet, and due out on Christmas, to play it safe. But Passengers is more than just a movie about Jennifer Lawerence and Chris Pratt getting sexy in space. It actually tries to challenge you... for a little bit. Then it…
All movies go through a lot of changes before they hit the screen. There are rewrites, recastings, edits, studio notes—but one of the biggest changes that the upcoming scifi film Passengers went through is when the most famous and recognizable actress on the planet, Jennifer Lawrence, decided to join the project.
Passengers is basically a two-person disaster movie IN SPACE and every single moment of it looks designed to keep humans afraid of space travel forever.
Passengers tells the story of two people who mysteriously wake up from hibernation on a spaceship that still has 90 years left on its journey. From there, things go from bad to worse.
Chris Pratt thinks Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 is going to be the biggest movie ever made. The hype is in danger of getting excessive.
Summer is over. Fall is here. Winter is fast approaching. And still, we have yet to see a trailer for Sony’s Christmas scifi movie Passengers. This isn’t some small movie either. It stars Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt, plus the footage that was shown to exhibitors back in April looked amazing. The first poster has…
Given that Star-Lord spent the entire first Guardians of the Galaxy searching for his father, it seems appropriate that, for the sequel, he would pick his own daddy out of a line-up.
Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence fall in love in space aboard a maybe-doomed spacecraft in Passengers, written by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Doctor Strange) and directed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game). Look, you had us at Chris Pratt. All that other stuff is just gravy. Advance word on the film is fantastic—and…
Just because we’re patiently waiting for its sequel, doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the wonder that is James Gunn’s first Guardians of the Galaxy. And if you’re looking for a striking new way to do just that, check out this poster.
This weekend, one of the producers of Ghostbusters declared the franchise would be “endless.” But there’s a long way to go before Sony decides to make an official Ghostbusters Cinematic Universe.
When a studio decides to release a scifi movie during Christmas, they think it has both commercial and awards potential. Both certainly seem possible for Passengers, starring Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence. Sony Pictures debuted the first footage from the film at CinemaCon, and it looks amazing.
