Before Peter Quill wore out Awesome Mix. Vol. 1 and cracked open Awesome Mix. Vol. 2, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn created Awesome Mix Vol. 0.
Groot is dead. Long live Baby Groot!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 might have given us Kurt Russell as a giant daddy planet, but the third volume in the series could (hopefully) give us something even bigger: Mark Hamill.
In the prison scenes in the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie, our gathered heroes unite first as inmates rather than cosmos savers—with matching yellow prison garb. Their trousers, however, don’t just have a cool spacey design on them, they actually fill out a long list of felonies committed by our not-so-good-guys.
You know the first 10 minutes or so of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, where Baby Groot dances while the rest of the team battles a giant space squid? That was pretty great. So great that Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2 recreated it for its Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 DLC, “Mr. Blue Sky” and all.
A decade of movies has brought us to the end of a long road in the form of Avengers: Infinity War, an epic undertaking we finally got our first, glorious look at today. The trailer paints a grim future for our heroes as Thanos makes his long-awaited move, but it’s also jam-packed with hints at the war to come.
The idea of a marching band doing a Guardians of the Galaxy-themed performance is kind of hard to get your head around. That is, until you see how USC’s marching band, the Spirit of Troy, pulled it off.
If you frequent pop culture websites like ours, you see a lot of pop culture art. And at some point, it may all blend together. But one artist does something that’s so different, so out of the box, once you see it, you never forget it. That artist is Andrew DeGraff.
James Gunn is notorious for hiding clever, fantastic Easter eggs in his two Guardians of the Galaxy of the films. Gunn’s always made a point of making the inside jokes incredibly difficult to find, but the director recently revealed the reason some of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2's best gags are impossible to spot:…
Look, there’s spooking people out with your Halloween costume, and then there’s traumatising them for the foreseeable future. This Yondu mask will do the latter.
Greetings and/or salutations, people! Welcome to io9's (occasionally weekly) mail column, where I solve the mysteries of the world of nerd-dom to you, both fictional and otherwise. This week: What was Elektra’s deal in The Defenders? Is an evil BB-8 droid a good thing or a bad thing? And, most importantly, who’s to…
It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 cast and crew had an inordinate amount of fun with one another working on the film. How are you supposed to make a movie in which a talking raccoon helps blow up a living planet if you’re not laughing your ass off between takes?
Do you live near a Cinemark Theater? If so, carve out some time starting Friday to take a big screen trip back through the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2's Kurt Russell wowed audiences when he revealed that the younger look he sported in flashback scenes was largely thanks to make-up, not visual effects. However, it took a lot more than some concealer and a wig to make Ego the Living Planet look 30 years younger.
At the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, James Gunn gave himself a way to keep making soundtracks filled with classic hits without having Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) somehow find a new mix tape over and over. All thanks to... the Zune.
In the MCU, the Ravagers are a band of criminals with a specific code. In the comics, those characters were also the original Guardians of the Galaxy. And while there’s been some speculation that the movies could switch the order around and have the Ravagers pick up the mantle, James Gunn recently talked about the…
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is coming to home video very soon and with it, a whole new perspective on the making of the film. We’ve already seen a behind-the-scenes clip, some cool Easter eggs and now, the always-wonderful gag reel is online. Spoiler: These guys had a lot of fun making this movie.
It’s pretty great being a science fiction fan in general, but it’s especially awesome when you’re directing a multi-million dollar movie and can coax your favorite star into appearing in your film. A luxury clearly afforded to James Gunn.
Versions of Adam Warlock’s cocoon have appeared in both Guardians of the Galaxy films and every time I’ve seen them, my skin has crawled, even though the pods are only on the screen for the briefest of moments. Imagine my horror, then, as I gazed upon the high-definition concept art for the monstrosities.
Every year, I make it a point to stop by the Mondo booth at San Diego Comic-Con as often as possible. No one at the entire convention releases as much exciting, vibrant, and exclusive pop culture art over the course of four days—and 2017 was no exception.
