Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Super Bowl Trailer


It's been two months since the Guardians of the Galaxy defeated the evil Ronan, and their prize is freedom and a clean criminal record. Finally. These guys are truly inseparable now; Baby Groot's (Vin Diesel) rebirth has meant that he has a lot of growing up to do and is relying on Rocket (Bradley Cooper) to keep him on the straight and narrow (not that he's great with kids or anything), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) hasn't changed a bit and Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), who is still using the name Star Lord, has started to develop seriously cuddly feelings towards the feisty Gamora (Zoe Saldana). Their latest mission is to track down Quill's alien father, but they are not alone. Joining them on their new galactic journey is Gamora's changeable sister Nebula (Karen Gillan), Quill's (kind of) adoptive father Yondu Udonta (Michael Rooker) and antennaed newcomer Mantis (Pom Klementieff).

Chris Pratt Talks About Weight Loss Battle After Being Called "Too Fat" For 'Moneyball'


Chris Pratt

Blockbuster star Chris Pratt has revealed details about the casting decision that ended up changing his life in a new interview.

The 37 year old actor, the star of Jurassic World, Guardians of the Galaxy and Passengers, told the February issue of Vanity Fair that he was almost turned down for his breakout movie role in Moneyball as because he was “too fat”.

Pratt had previously made his name as the overweight musician Andy Dwyer in acclaimed comedy series ‘Parks and Recreation’, but he auditioned for the part of Oakland A’s first baseman and catcher Scott Hatteberg in 2011’s Moneyball, which went on to receive multiple Oscar nominations.

Passengers Review

Very Good

Anchored by the almost ridiculously engaging Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence, this sci-fi movie travels through drama, comedy, romance and action as it tells a deep-space story with essentially just three characters. Directed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game), the film looks sleek and cool, but it's the charismatic duo at the centre that holds the attention.

The spacecraft Avalon is on a 120-year journey from Earth to a distant homestead planet, where its 5,000 hibernating passengers will wake up to start a new life. But only 30 years into the trip, one pod opens by mistake. And James (Pratt) realises that he's come out of suspended animation 90 years too soon. His only company is a robotic barman (Sheen), so in a moment of weakness he wakes up another passenger, Aurora (Lawrence). As they begin to settle in for their long, lonely life together, the ship begins misbehaving, waking up a crew member (Laurence Fishburne) who works with James and Aurora to figure out why all of this is happening. And they'll need to work quickly if they hope to save the lives of the sleeping passengers.

Basically, the film is like a mash-up of Titanic and Gravity. The Avalon is a super-whizzy cruiseliner, and Tyldum finds all kinds of visually stunning settings in its various areas, from the vast shopping mall at the centre to a windowed swimming pool and a few gasp-inducing spacewalks. There's also a riff on the disparity between poor passengers like mechanic James in steerage and the wealthy ones like writer Aurora. Plus a hint of an idea in the corporate conglomerate that's making a fortune from this ambitious project. But these deeper themes remain well under the surface, as the attention focuses squarely on the journey James and Aurora are taking. This may leave the movie feeling rather thin and superficial, but it's also deeply involving.

The chemistry between these two talented stars has been obvious since promotion of the sci-fi thriller began, she we can only imagine how this will translate to the cinema screen with their forthcoming movie.

Chris Evans Chris Pratt Scarlett Johansson Mila Kunis Vin Diesel

Captain America actor Chris Evans has been named at the top of Forbes’ Best Actor for the Buck list for the second consecutive year, in a list dominated by stars of the Marvel universe.

For every dollar he was paid, he generated a whopping $135.80 at the box office.

This is calculated by Forbes analysing the last three movies an actor has starred in before June 2016, excluding cameos, animated films and movies released on fewer than 2,000 screens.
