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.

Five of our favourite unlikely heroes re-assemble in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. The second instalment of the movie takes place only months after the first ended.
Having defeated Ronan and saved the universe from impending doom, Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Rocket and Groot are travelling through space together but keeping the small crew of rebels isn't going to be easy.
At the end of the first film, everybody thought that Groot was a gonner but thankfully is old buddies Groot made new roots and was saved.
The first publicity shots of the 2017 follow-up to 'Jumanji' showed Gillan dressed in what she called "child sized clothes" - but said that all would become clear.
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.

Filming has just begun on the upcoming sequel.
Kevin Hart has given fans their first look at the new Jumanji sequel which is scheduled to hit cinemas next year. Last month star Dwayne Johnson made it clear that the film would be a sequel to the 1995 children’s classic, which starred Robin Williams, rather than a reboot as some had originally thought.
Gillan has been cast in the upcoming film after a long search to fill the female role.
Dwayne Johnson has announced that he’s cast former ‘Doctor Who’ star Karen Gillan in the upcoming Jumanji movie. Gillan joins the cast alongside Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Nick Jonas, in what’s been described as a ‘continuation’ of the original 1995 film.

When Dr. Michael Burry discovered that the housing market in the US relied upon a series of bad loans in 2005, he knew there was profit to be had. He even went as far as moving on from his multi-million dollar Scion Capital LLC hedge fund in a bid to short the market and take advantage of the vulnerable housing deals. But he wasn't the only one with plans to accrue wealth off the back of financial disaster; Steve Eisman was a hedge fund manager who had a lot to say against the greedy banks, as did Cornwall Capital partner Ben Hockett and Deutsche Bank trader Greg Lippmann. These are financial outsiders that are about to show the banks a serious lesson when they use their economic skills to bring them down with a brave move in the credit default swap market.

McCoy, who played the Doctor from 1987-1989, reckons it would upset the on-screen chemistry between the Time Lord and his assistant.
Former ‘Doctor Who’ actor Sylvester McCoy has dismissed the idea that the time-travelling hero could be played by a woman, and that he’s “not convinced by the cultural need” for the role to be re-cast in such a way.
The 71 year old actor, who played the seventh incarnation of the Time Lord between 1987 and 1989, finished his stint in the role in the 1996 movie in which he was replaced by Paul McGann, believes that giving the lead role to a female would upset the chemistry in the scripts.

Ahead of the release of their latest album 'Seeds', TV On The Radio hit the UK for a one-off show.
TV On The Radio return with their fifth studio album this Autumn entitled 'Seeds', and will be hitting London for a one-off, intimate show over at the restaurant/bar Oslo in Hackney next week.
TV On The Radio will release Seeds November 17

Hopeful attendees can risk it, of course, with tickets still set to be made available in the full sale, but given the exclusivity of the tickets, it's definitely worth ordering 'Seeds' for a better chance.

By refusing to follow the usual formula, filmmaker James Gunn has made Marvel's best-yet movie, a summer action-adventure that provides more cinematic fun than the rest of the year's blockbusters rolled into one. It's shamelessly entertaining, keeping the focus on sparky characters even as the action spirals into exhilarating set-pieces around them. And the best thing is that the film isn't actually about the big plot: it's about a group of people who should hate each other but instead come together as a team.
In a pre-logo sequence set in 1988 America, a young boy is kidnapped by aliens. Some 25 years later, Peter (Chris Pratt) has become an ace thief who roams the galaxy in search of cash. Curious and charming, he can get himself out of most scrapes, but when he collects a mysterious orb for a client he ends up as the target of two bounty hunters, the raccoon-like Rocket and tree-like Groot (voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel). And the villainously destructive Ronan (Lee Pace) sends his best fighter Gamora (Zoe Saldana) to get the orb for his own nefarious plan. Rounded up and thrown into prison, Peter, Gamora, Rocket and Groot stage a daring escape with the help of literal-minded muscleman Drax (Dave Bautista), then must work together to deal with this troublesome orb. So they contact Peter's mentor/nemesis Yondu (Michael Rooker) before taking on Ronan and his second-best fighter, Gamora's half-cyborg sister Nebula (Karen Gillan).
Gunn gives the film a look and tone unlike anything in the Marvel universe, with colourful ships, sassy humour and freewheeling action that propels the story and deepens the character at the same time. It also makes the most of the well-worn 1980s mixtape Peter uses as his own personal soundtrack. It's the kind of riotously thrill ride that makes us hold on for dear life, loving every twist and turn. And since it's so tightly focused on the characters, the action plot involving the orb merely adds texture around the edges. As do terrific actors like Glenn Close and John C. Reilly in small but pivotal roles.

The Scottish actress explains what happened with the Star Wars wig stories
Speaking at last night’s UK premiere of Guardians of The Galaxy, Karen Gillan was quizzed by the BBC’s entertainment correspondent, Lizo, about the confusion surrounding her hair and the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII.

For some reason, the Internet went into overdrive surrounding the idea that Gillan – who stars in Marvel’s new movie, Guardians – had donated her hair to J.J Abram’s Star Wars: Episode VII. She dispelled those rumours, though, calling the whole thing a “miscommunication”.
