Marvel Releases First Full Image Of ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Villain Thanos
BAADASSSSS!   |  

Thanos Header Image

Last night, Guardians of the Galaxy finally premiered on theater screens after years of anticipation and some camera-happy moviegoers were ready to take quick snaps of the action. One person got a shot and quickly uploaded it to Instagram of Thanos, one of the most feared villains in the Marvel Universe who made his movie debut with a brief profile shot in 2012′s The Avengers, but was played in full for a few scenes in Guardians by Josh Brolin.

Thus, Marvel Studios was compelled to release a higher-quality image of the Mad Titan sitting atop his rocket-powered throne during his first full appearance. (A snippet of this scene was also included near the end of the Comic-Con sizzle reel that Marvel also released today.)

If you haven’t seen Guardians yet and would prefer not to have Thanos’ CGI-rendered visage spoiled then you might want to skip the remainder of this article. For the rest of you, here it is….

Theater Shows ‘Rise Of The Guardians’ Instead Of ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’, Hilarity Ensues
Empress Eve   |  

Guardians Of The Galaxy Poster Header

It’s one of the most highly anticipated movies of the Summer – Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy, which opened in theaters today. But it appears that some movie-goers who attended midnight showings for the film last night were shown a different movie – Rise of the Guardians, the 2012 computer-animated DreamWorks feature about Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, the Sandman, and Jack Frost banding together to try to prevent the bogeyman Pitch Black from shrouding the world in darkness.

ABC News reported on the story, embedding various Twitter postings from movie-goers who were subjected to Rise instead of Guardians. My favorite Tweet about the incident has to be the one that says “EVERYONE IN THE THEATRE IS CRYING” when the wrong movie started playing.

Every Marvel Movie Easter Egg Explained (Video)
Empress Eve   |  

The Avengers movie group photo

Marvel Studios has been hiding Easter Eggs, those hidden hat tips for knowing fans, throughout their films since Iron Man, which was the start of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There was Captain America’s shield in Iron Man, Captain America’s blue serum in The Incredible Hulk, and The Infinity Gauntlet in Odin’s trophy room in Thor, among others. But, there’s more than just foreshowing of more Marvel movies to come; there’s also been references to the actors, other Marvel mediums, and much more.

MTV has put together a 13-minute video that includes all the Easter Eggs throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe through Thor: The Dark World. (Guardians of the Galaxy just hit theaters today, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier is no longer in theaters and has not yet been given a home video release, so those two were not included in the video).

There are some real gems in this video, so watch it here below!

Maleficent star Elle Fanning has been cast as Frankenstein author Mary Shelley in the romantic period drama A Storm in the Stars, according to THR.

The 16-year-old actress will play a 17-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft in the film, which centers on the controversial and passionate love affair the young writer had with the 19th century radical English poet Percy Shelley, to whom she later married.

A Storm in the Stars, which is still securing financing and is looking to start filming in 2015, is written by Emma Jensen and directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour (Wadjda), who is the first female director to come out of Saudi Arabia.

Sharknado 2 The Second One poster banner

Sharknado 2: The Second One
Directed by Anthony C Ferrante
Written by Thunder Levin
Starring Ian Ziering, Tara Reid, Vivica A. Fox, and Mark McGrath
SyFy | Asylum Productions
Rated TV 14 | 86 Minutes
Release Date: July 30, 2014

“They’re sharks, they’re scary. No one wants to be eaten. I’ve been eaten, and I’m here to tell ya, it takes more than that to keep a good man down!”

You know a movie is a certain type of special when it begins with a shark attack on an airplane. Welcome back to the world of Sharknado! Capitalizing on the Discovery Channel’s money grab “Shark Week,” SyFy’s Asylum Productions hit gold with 2013’s Sharknado. Since Jaws in 1975, sharks have captivated American audiences and no one in recent years has profited more than SyFy channel, which has produced countless “epic” shark films including Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus, Ghost Shark, and last year’s Sharknado, a film about ferocious storms sweeping up all types of monster sharks and sending them flying into coastal California.

Following the mantra of “go big or go home,” Sharknado 2: The Second One begins with the titular weather event arriving in New York at the same time as Finn Shephard and April Wexler (Ian Ziering and Tara Reid, respectively), our heroes from part 1. He is a Sharknado celebrity and is immediately called upon to save the city from the horrors of flying CGI Great Whites.

Movie Review: Guardians Of The Galaxy
FamousMonster   |  

guardians of the galaxy movie review by Adam Frazier

Guardians of the Galaxy
Director: James Gunn
Screenwriters: James Gunn and Nicole Perlman
Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Benicio del Toro
Marvel Studios | Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG-13 | 121 Minutes
Release Date: August 1, 2014

I’m a space invader, I’ll be a rock ‘n’ rollin’ bitch for you.” – David Bowie

James Gunn just saved an entire generation of children from having shitty, uncool childhoods. Guardians of the Galaxy is an epic, action-packed space adventure – a freewheeling, infinitely charming film destined for cult status.

Directed by Gunn (Super, Slither), Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where Peter Quill aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) is the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by genocidal extremist Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace).

Pratt’s Quill is a mix of Han Solo, Marty McFly, and Peter Venkman. Motivated by fortune and glory, he is a brash scoundrel – a sarcastic, world-weary bandit who is secretly sweet-natured. Abducted as a kid in the ’80s and raised by intergalactic smugglers, Quill is a stranger in a strange land universe. All he has left to remind him of Earth is a Troll® doll, a Sony Walkman, and Awesome Mix Vol. 1 – a cassette of ’70s pop hits handpicked by his mother.

It’ll Be Three Years Before We See ‘Avengers 3′ Says Kevin Feige
eelyajekiM   |  

Avengers Age Of Ultron header image

There will be a long lull of Marvel Studios’ films between Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron. In between that lull we could expect to see trailers and clips for the latter film. So while some of us are waiting for the highly anticipated Avengers sequel to hit theaters next May, others are thinking beyond that date.

In addition to Age of Ultron, we will also see Ant-Man opening in July of next year, which will be followed up by Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016; followed by an untitled film; followed by another untitled film on May 5, 2017; then the release of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 on July 17, 2017, and another mystery release in November 2017.

Marvel has carefully coordinated their plan of attack by releasing up to two to three films a year. But it is 2018 we should all be watching out for. 2012 marked the release of The Avengers, and it’ll be three years since its release when Age of Ultron hits theaters next year. So does that mean we will have to wait another three years before Avengers 3 hits after Age of Ultron? Hit the jump to find out.
