Well, there’s now photographic proof that one of the characters/monsters Peter Capaldi‘s 12th Doctor was rumored to encounter in series eight of DOCTOR WHO is definitely happening!
If you don’t want to know who/what it is, then move along to something else. If you do wish to know, then make the jump — but beware: SPOILER!
Because I’m having a hard time resisting anything to do with James Gunn‘s upcoming adaptation of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, here are three new images from what promises to be a bat-shit crazy movie! (We should be so lucky!)
Here we see Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord wearing his mask and running on the set, plus Peter dealing with Gamora, as played by Zoe Saldana. And then there’s all the self-described Guardians in prison jumpsuits: Quill and Gamora flanking Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and Drax the Destroyer, played by Dave Bautista.
Director Gunn recently doled out a bit of info about Peter Quill’s origin in the movie, as well as Gamora and Nebula:
“He was abducted from Earth (Missouri) at age eight and raised in a group of thieves and smugglers called the Ravagers. He’s good with the ladies and a little bit of a d**k and very lucky. Thanos slaughtered [Gamora’s] family and Nebula’s, then raised them together as siblings. They were bioengineered to become living weapons, so he’s really good at killing people.”
Let the GotG insanity begin on Aug. 1!
Trying something new today: A post consisting of a series of trailers for movies I find interesting — and some I consider execrable. It’s a sort of good, the bad and the ugly of coming attractions.
First the films I am looking forward to seeing…
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson doing Hercules the way it should be done? Yes, please.
This looks like Source Code as told from the other side — what happens to a doomed hero on his personal Groundhog Day in hell. Yeah, Tom Cruise doesn’t have a great batting average with sci-fi, but — Emily Blunt is considerably better at picking material.
