Karen Gillan Loves Nebula's Dark Side


Karen Gillan

Probably one of the most criminally underrated characters of the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' franchise is Gamora's wayward sister Nebula, played by Karen Gillan. There's very much an 'is she evil or benign?' thing going on with her, which we get to the bottom of in the second film.

'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' dropped over the weekend, and with it we met a host of new characters and learnt a little bit more about some of the minor names of the 2014 movie. Nebula, loyal adopted daughter of the tyrannical Thanos and the rival sibling of Zoe Saldana's heroine character Gamora, is just one such example.

Interviews with Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 Cast and Director

The stars and director of Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 talk about the long awaited sequel to the 2014 movie. The much loved ragtag crew consisting of Peter Quill (Star-Lord), Rocket, Groot, Gamora and Drax have just defeated Ronan and stopped the evil villain from using a powerful orb to destroy Xandar, the capital of the Nova Empire. With their criminal records cleared the crew fly off in Quill's spaceship the Milano after he learns that he's only part human and his father is mystery he's still yet to uncover. Equipped with a new mix tape from his mother, the gang are ready to set off on a new adventure.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 begins with the Guardians being asked by Ayesha, the leader of the Sovereign race, to retrieve a set of incredibly powerful batteries from the grasps of a monster. In return for their work, the crew will be given Gamora's sister, Nebula, who was captured by the Sovereigns when she tried to steal the batteries for herself. Though their mission is successful, the ever naughty Rocket decided to keep a couple of the batteries for himself landing the gang in serious trouble and being chased by Ayesha's army. Luckily for the crew of the Milano, they are saved by Quill's father, Ego, who reveals to Peter that he must've inherited some of his father's immense powers. 

Whilst Ego and Peter bond, Rocket and Baby Groot find themselves getting captured and form an unlikely alliance with a familiar face. However, loyalties might not be as clear cut as the crew might've thought and there is imminent danger afoot from all corners of the Galaxy.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Review

Extraordinary

It was never going to be easy to match the impact of 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy, which jolted the Marvel franchise to life with its fresh comedy and freewheeling adventure. This sequel is still a lot of fun, but it's also far more controlled, a conventional, plot-based step of the Marvel universe. And all of the characters are angry about everything and everyone. Thankfully, there's also an emotionality that sneaks into the final act.

Now working as a team, the bickering Guardians just manage to complete their latest mission when Rocket (Bradley Cooper) makes an enemy of a tenacious high priestess (Elizabeth Debicki). Her fleet chases them into an encounter with Ego (Kurt Russell), a god-like being who claims to be the father of Guardian leader Peter (Chris Pratt). So Peter takes Gamora and Drax (Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista) to check out Ego's planet, while Rocket and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) fend off both the priestess and Peter's old mentor Yondu (Michael Rooker), who arrives with a large posse. And then there's Gamora's perpetually furious sister Nebula (Karen Gillan), who's on the rampage, determined to get revenge against everyone who has slighted her.

There's an underlying rage that drives everyone's actions, and the constant screaming matches become exhausting as the film progresses. The worst offender is Rocket, who expresses his perpetual aggravation in a stream of tetchy tirades. Thankfully, the dialogue is sharply written, with wicked insults to keep the audience smirking along. And there's also a nice sense that all of this fury is masking a deeper affection these misfits have for each other, which boils over in some remarkably strong dramatic scenes. Pratt and Russell are both terrific, seizing every chance to play with the comedic and dramatic notes. There are nice moments for Rooker, Saldana and Gillan, plus some witty cameos. And while Baby Groot is almost painfully adorable, it's Bautista's hilariously open-hearted Drax who steals the show.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 - Extended Trailer & Clips


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.

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).

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Trailer


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.

Former ‘Doctor Who’ star Karen Gillan has replied to criticisms that the first promotional shots from the new Jumanji movie are sexist because of the (extremely) tight clothes she’s wearing.

The new movie, which has been in production for the last four years, is intended as a sequel to the 1995 family favourite movie of the same name. Its release is currently set for July 28th, 2017 and work on the project has accelerated considerably in the last few months.
