NYCC’14: Baby Groot Officially ‘Grooting’ to a Store Near You!

Screen Shot 2014-10-10 at 7.35.46 PM

By Alexander Jones There has been a lot of hullabaloo on Marvel Studios not capitalizing on the ‘Grooting’ phenomena that has been sweeping the internet. This is in reference to the Guardians of the Galaxy character Groot dancing behind Drax the Destroyer a.k.a. actor Dave Batista’s back during the end credits of the film. In […]

It’s Autumn now, and it’s been a long time since we attempted to ride the coattails of Guardians of the Galaxy, 2014’s breakout stars. But now that the weather is getting colder you may be needing a transitional jacket, for those snappy autumn days (or warming autumn days if you live in the South). Anyway, […]

And finally…here is the dancing Baby Groot you have been clamoring for

Untitled-148.jpg

Disney has released a clip of Dancing Baby Groot even though (spoilers) it spoils the end of the movie. I guess good social media is worth more than spoiling movies in the era of downloads and….social media. Anyway…..it’s sweet.

Howard the Duck Comics Suddenly Available For Some Great Unknown Reason

Howard the Duck

On July 29th, Marvel released a whole bunch of old Howard the Duck comics onto ComiXology for what appears to be no reason. Okay wait, I guess they are fantastic books by the late great Steve Gerber and Gene Colan (among others), but wow, that sure does seem random. Oh, and Marvel VP David Gabriel recently confirmed […]

Wanna listen to the Awesome Mix Vol 1 from Guardians of the Galaxy?

awesomemix.jpg

Perhaps no movie since the last Quentin Tarantino film has used familiar music as effectively to cue emotions as Guardians of The Galaxy. Starting with the trailers, director James Gunn picked out 70s music that has both nostalgic schlock value and hooks as big and irresistible as the universe. The result is music that grounds […]

Analysis: ‘Guardians’ rule the galaxy with biggest ever August opening, and Marvel keeps mining the head

53bb0ae63b26c.jpg

Whoa, Guardians of the Galaxy…where to start. In a summer of unexceptional sequels and remakes, Marvel and Disney triumphed with a new creation that had a fresh take on the space opera genre, while introducing such comics elements as Thanos, Infinity Gems, and Rocket Raccoon. I never thought I would type that sentence outside of a fever dream.

It looks like Marvel has done the utterly impossible by turning Guardians of the Galaxy—a movie based on an obscure SF team of misfits—in a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes, $65 mil at the BO certified feel good movie of the summer. And their also releasing a bunch of comics that will keep the characters as […]

Composing for Heroes: Continuity and Emotions

Composers Tyler Bates, Christophe Beck, Blake Neely, John Ottoman, and Brian Tyler.

By: Nick Eskey There are many pieces that go into creating a successful movie and television series, especially when trying to bring something to life from a printed medium. There has to be a solid script, right choice of actors, a fitting venue, and of course perfect music score. All of these aspects paint a […]

SDCC 2014: Day -1 — a peak at the floor and The Year of Guardians

IMG_8281

I kind of had an inkling that Guardians of the Galaxy would be the big thing at Comic-Con 2014, and after looking on the floor for a few minutes…I was right. If it isn’t the Lego Rocket and Groot, it’s dioramas or the spaceship (Owl ship?) in the Marvel booth. The Marvel booth is very […]

Nice Art: Jeff Smith covers Rocket Raccoon for SDCC Marvel exclusive

smith_rocket-Raccoon.jpg

I’ve wondered in the past if Rocket Raccoon would get overexposed before Guardians of the Galaxy comes out. Well as long as that exposure is swell variant covers by Jeff Smith, I have no worries about that.

17-minute Guardians of the Galaxy preview is hilarious…and here are 25 new stills

53bb08f5aec31

In a perfect movie going world, we would have seen the brilliant “Hooked on a Feeling” Guardians of the Galaxy footage shown at Comic-Con last year and then known nothing more about the film until we sat down to see it on August 1. But this is not that world. Disney/Marvel is confident enough in […]
