It's good, but are too many puns recycled and out-dated?
James Gunn and the all-star cast of the original 'Guardians of the Galaxy' movie return this coming weekend with the sequel to the box office hit. With Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel on board, along with other big names, the film certainly has an incredible amount of pulling power.

The film will mark the big screen introduction for Ego, the Living Planet, whom fans will immediately see in a 1980 meeting with Meredith Quill - Peter's mother. Showing her an alien seedling he planted in the woods of Missouri, a whole new adventure is kickstarted with Star-Lord's parentage clearly a huge part of everything that's to follow.

The kill-or-die scenario that this movie hinges on isn't something new; it's been used in films from Battle Royale to The Hunger Games. What's different here is the utter pointlessness of the exercise. There's no social commentary here whatsoever, nor is there any satirical edge or character-based intrigue. Instead, this is little more than a sadistic exercise in violence and death, more along the lines of the Saw series. And if it didn't have such a terrific cast, it would be unwatchable.
It's set in a suburb of Bogota, Colombia, where the Belko nonprofit agency helps Latin American companies connect with North American employees. One morning, just after the staff arrives for work, there's an announcement: two people must be killed in the next two minutes. And then 30 people must be dead in the next two hours. It doesn't take long until the entire office block collapses into anarchy. The boss Barry (Tony Goldwyn) immediately seizes control of a stash of guns in the security office, while IT guy Mike (John Gallagher Jr.) keeps a level head as he tries to protect his girlfriend Leandra (Adria Arjona). And as chatterbox Wendell (John G. McGinley) goes on a rampage, Dany (Melonie Diaz) manages to keep out of everyone's way on her very first day in the job.
It's hard to believe that this is written and produced by James Gunn, the man behind the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. The script is so simplistic and witless that it can't help but make thinking audience members furious. Convenient elements are added to boost the premise, such as impenetrable shutters closing off the building or tracker chips implanted in the employees that have explosive charges in them that can be triggered with the flick of a switch. In other words, it's clear from the start that it's unlikely anyone will survive. And even if they do, there's no real reason for any of this to be happening.

James Gunn says that we may meet an LGBTQ character in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'.
It is thrilling to see more and more big movie franchises making the effort to represent the LGBTQ community, and it seems that James Gunn could be the latest to do so with the upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy' film according to recent comment he made.

The director, who recently confirmed that he would be at the helm for 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3', confessed that he 'would love to able to' feature a gay superhero of some kind in the Marvel franchise and went on to suggest that he possibly already has for the forthcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' movie.

The Guardians of the Galaxy have returned for another interplanetary adventure, having decided to stick together after forming an unbreakable bond on their last journey. Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord), Drax the Destroyer, Rocket, Gamora and Groot (well... Baby Groot) are back but this time they are not alone. They are joined by Gamora's cynical and formerly evil sister Nebula, initially as a prisoner but then as a fully-fledged member of the team. Ravagers leader Yondu Udonta also join them, though not without trying to kill them first, and a new face in the form of Mantis is also among the new arrivals. Mantis happens to be the adoptive daughter of Ego - a mysterious being who Peter meets on his latest quest, and discovers that he is in fact his father. The team come against plenty of adversaries on their new adventures, but nothing compares to this confusing and unexpected meeting.
The director has teased fans with news of multiple post-credits scenes.
Before the release of the first 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' movie, only hardcore Marvel comic book fans would have known of Star Lord, Gamora and their fellow space-travelling adventurers. Now, they and the actors who have portrayed them on the big screen have become some of the most popular characters from the Marvel Cinematic Universe; you'd be hard pressed to find a cinema-goer who wouldn't recognise them immediately.
Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana make up some of the incredible ensemble cast
With 'Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2' right around the corner, more news and tidbits of information regarding the film continues to rise to the surface, with director James Gunn - who was recently confirmed to also be on board to write and direct the third movie in the 'Guardians' trilogy - whetting the appetites of those anxiously awaiting release.
'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3' will be directed by James Gunn.
It's unusual for a Marvel franchise to repeatedly use the same director, but it's just been announced that 'Guardians of the Galaxy' are doing just that by re-enlisting James Gunn to direct the third film. He made the announcement on social media, just weeks ahead of the second film's release.

'I'm returning to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3', said James this week. It wasn't an easy decision for James to make, but he has ultimately decided to stick with his beloved Guardians for at least one more film after this year's 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' which comes out next month.

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).
The Guardians return two months after their epic battle against Ronan with their criminal records erased and a feeling of peace with the knowledge that the highly destructive Infinity Stone is in the hands of Nova Corps. Groot is doing his best to grow up, but he has a lot to learn now that he has been reborn as Baby Groot and that's something that is a permanent frustration for his partner in crime Rocket. Meanwhile, Drax is still hopeless when it comes to sensitivity or discretion, making things very awkward for Peter Quill most of the time because he just can't keep his mouth shut about Quill's feelings for Gamora. This ragtag team have more serious things to deal with howevever; Quill has learned that he is actually only half-human, and his alien father of unknown origin resides somewhere in the cosmos.

The actress is thought to be playing Mary Jane Watson in the upcoming reboot.
Guardians of The Galaxy director James Gunn has hit out at critics of the upcoming Spider-Man reboot who have complained about the casting of Zendaya as Peter Parker’s love interest Mary Jane Watson. Last week The Wrap reported that the former Disney star had been cast as Mary Jane in Spider-Man: Homecoming, causing backlash from those who believed the character should be played by a white actress.

In a lengthly Facebook post Gunn wrote that he understands when comic book fans get upset when something they consider intrinsic to a character changes when it's adapted for film.
The 44-year-old director has addressed "serious" filmmakers after the superhero genre was slammed several times during this year's movie award season.
Throughout this year's awards season, it seems to be apparent that some individuals in the film industry are growing tired of superhero movies and the genre's dominance over the box office in recent years.
