Oh Yeeeah! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Begins Shooting!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2A few years ago I had the distinct pleasure and a once in a lifetime opportunity to go to California to see Guardians of the Galaxy and meet and interview the cast. It was such an amazing experience and to this day is the best ever press trip I was on. Meeting Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, James Gunn, Zoe Saldana, and Vin Diesel was simply amazing. We missed Kevin Feige on this trip but I did get to see him on another trip that I went on for Avengers: Age of Ultron. So, suffice it to say I am bursting with excitement to see this movie. I follow James Gunn on Facebook and he is excellent with his posts. He did an amazing thing with Guardians of the Galaxy and Vol. 2. promises to be even better.

There are some great things happening in this new movie including the addition of Kurt Russell as Star-Lord’s father. I think he is the most perfect casting for this role. I’ve loved him since The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes that I watched on The Wonderful World of Disney. And then his roles as Snake Plissken in Escape from New York and then Jack Burton in Big Trouble in Little China, plus Gabriel Cash in Tango and Cash he was awesome! So he’s gonna crush it as Star-Lord’s dad.I just cannot wait. Below is the press release for the movie. Continue reading Oh Yeeeah! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Begins Shooting!

During the #GuardiansOfTheGalaxyEvent that I attended a coupe of weeks ago I had the pleasure to be part of a group interview with Zoe Saldana who plays Gamora in the movie. Zoe has played many strong female roles in sci-fi movies including Lt. Uhura in the Star Trek reboots and Neytiri in the Avatar series. When speaking to Zoe you can’t help but notice the quiet grace of this fiercely intelligent and intense woman. Zoe told us about her motivations for taking the role and her input to make Gamora more than simply eye candy. Plus she likes the Thundercats so that makes her awesome in my book.
