The film will be Gunn's third with the series.
Right now, 'Guardians of the Galaxy' fans are making their way to movie theatres in droves to pack out viewings of the newly-released Marvel Cinematic Universe film, 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'. James Gunn was back on board for the movie, bringing the fan base he helped establish back on board for another mind-blowing adventure in space.
The third instalment in James Gunn's trilogy could be complete within three years
Leading the cast is Chris Pratt as Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, whilst Dave Bautista is Drax, Bradley Cooper is Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel is Groot and Zoe Saldana is Gamora. The space-traveling superheroes names are ones that would have baffled anybody but the most loyal of Marvel comic book readers at one point, but they've now gone on to become household names and firm fan favourites amongst the masses.
Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 hit cinemas this week!
When he first thought about taking on Marvel's little-known Guardians of the Galaxy, writer-director James Gunn's only plan was to breathe life back into the sci-fi genre, which he thought had become drab and grey since the days of Star Wars and Flash Gordon. "I saw it as an opportunity," he says. "I could truly fill a hole of what was missing."

Indeed, the original 2014 film was a huge hit with fans, who have returned for the Vol. 2 in record numbers. Of course, most sequels are daunting for filmmakers who are trying to equal the success of the original, but Gunn saw it as an opportunity. "The only restrictions this time were things that we set up in the last movie," he says. "Other than that, it could go anywhere we wanted it to. I got to start from scratch with the story this time. The emotional and action plots were completely intertwined, and all organic and one thing."

Director James Gunn explains why 'Guardians of the Galaxy' is so successful.
All filmmakers have different ways of shooting a movie, and none are wrong. Some like to keep things basic and let the story flesh itself out on set, while others plan everything down to the last intake of breath. The latter happens to be 'Guardians of the Galaxy' director James Gunn.

James Gunn has opened up about the secrets to the success of 'Guardians of the Galaxy', ahead of the release of the eagerly anticipated sequel. It seems the main thing that he believes is important when writing a script and shooting a film is as much preparation as possible.

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.
'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.
James Gunn at the 'Doctor Strange' premiere
'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.

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.
But who will Russell play in the comic book sequel?
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has confirmed that Kurt Russell will be joining the cast for the upcoming sequel. Writing on Facebook, Gunn also confirmed that official photography on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had started, but he was careful not to give anything away about Russell’s role.
Kurt Russell has been cast in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2.
“My favourite movie as a small child was The Strongest Man in the World, so I'm glad to announce that, yes, Kurt Russell has joined our cast and, yes, he is more awesome a dude than I ever could have imagined,” Gunn wrote.

Next weekend will see The Guardians of The Galaxy depart for earth
‘Guardians of The Galaxy’ hits cinemas next weekend with Marvel bracing itself for what could be a winning few days at the box office. Based on one of the more obscure comics, GotG has accumulated a lot of hype because of the oddball characters, not to mention its 70s inspired soundtrack.
Chris Pratt was a gamble to lead this latest Marvel movie, but it's a gamble that has paid off
“I can’t believe they let me do all this stuff,” Gunn admitted of his upcoming movie. “It’s really sinking in for the first time. For the past two years, all I’ve been doing is driving forward, making this movie. Now I’m done and I’m standing outside of it, and I’m going, ‘How did you guys let me get away with all that?’”

The brand new, full length international trailer has been released for the upcoming summer blockbuster.
Prepare to check out the new trailer for the upcoming summer blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy, which is due to open from the end of July. James Gunn's visualisation of Marvel's lesser-known comic book series recruits a stellar cast in an outer space setting with jaw-dropping special effects and rib-tickling one-liners.
Chris Pratt takes the lead alongside Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Josh Brolin, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close Benicio Del Toro and Dave Bautista in what looks to be one of the action highlights of summer 2014.
In a nutshell, Pratt's adventurer, Peter Quill, gets stranded in space and unites a team of unlikely ex-con aliens in order to mount a defence against the cosmic threat of Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe.

Peter Quill runs into some trouble when he discovers an unusual looking orb that happens to be hunted by the merciless admiral Ronan and his army of miscreants. He is an Earthling; an unusual race within his neighbourhood in which he grew up after being removed for his home planet as a child. Naming himself the Star-Lord, he likes to think he's one heck of a superhero - but he's about to meet his match (or should we say 'matches'?). After being arrested by Ronan's people, he is greeted by four other alien outlaws. First there is the enormous Drax the Destroyer who is determined to use his supernatural strength to avenge his murdered family; then there's cyborg Gamora, the daughter of Thanos (an even bigger villain in this story); Rocket, a psychotic gun-toting raccoon; and half-man half-tree Groot. They may be distrustful of each other, but they've got to stick together if they want to save the universe from certain annihilation.
Since when did superhero films have to be serious? Marvel apply comedy to comics with 'Guardians Of The Galaxy', which is based on the original comics by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. The movie has been directed by James Gunn ('Super', 'Slither', 'PG Porn') and co-written by Nicole Perlman and is due for UK release on July 31st 2014.
Peter Quill is a fearless Earthling pilot who rather proudly proclaims himself to be an outlaw, going by the nickname Star-Lord. As a child, he was taken from his home planet and forced to live around various alien races, but even he is in for a surprise when he is captured by merciless hunters led by the evil admiral Ronan after he tries to make off with an extraordinary orb. It is during his imprisonment that he meets four other intrepid outlaws. There’s Drax the Destroyer, a man of muscle hellbent on avenging the tragic murders of his family; Gamora, a green-skinned cyborg who is the rebellious daughter of Ronan’s boss Thanos; Rocket, a genetically modified raccoon with incredible firearm dexterity; and Groot, a half-man half-tree creature who knows little about the technological world. Despite their reluctance, the five must join together to save the universe from Thanos’ dastardly plans.

In a special Q&A session on Monday (19th May), Diesel and director James Gunn spoke affectionately about Groot with Diesel claiming the role helped him overcome the death of Paul Walker.

In case you needed a closer look at the smallest Guardian, Marvel have you covered
The Guardians of the Galaxy trailer has been out for a week now – plenty of time to get acquainted with the rag tag band of misfits, who call themselves the Guardians. These aren’t your regular superheroes we’re talking about here. And despite the fact that the team includes a green alien assassin and a treelike humanoid, the Guardian getting the most flack has to be Rocket. You know, the raccoon?
Rocket, looking cooler than any racoon ever could.
Rocket Racoon didn’t get a lot of screentime in the trailer – presumably the visual gag of him being, you know, a raccoon, was enough to make people remember him.
Peter Quill is a tenacious pilot who was taken away from his home planet Earth as a child to grow up around alien races. Arrogantly nicknaming himself Star-Lord, he finds himself captured by the evil admiral Ronan's ruthless hunters during the attempted theft of a powerful orb. On his arrest, he meets four other criminal eccentrics: muscle man Drax the Destroyer, who is searching for vengeance after the brutal death of his family; the rebellious cyborg Gamora, whose father is Ronan's boss Thanos; a weapon toting, genetically modified racoon named Rocket with better gun skills than most humans; and, the latter's accomplice, tree man Groot. Soon, the group decide to band together in order to protect their galaxy after discovering what the orb is really about to be used for.

As Guardians of The Galaxy, Marvel’s superhero team have a pretty big catchment area, which includes London. Cast frm th movie were seen filming scenes on the Millennium Bridge over the River Thames over the weekend.
Cast film Guardians of The Galaxy in London
The highly anticipated film actually has its base in the English capital, with Shepperton Studios housing the production. Filming started yesterday with the cast sprinting over the Millennium Bridge.
The Guardians of the Galaxy stars were on-hand to promote the movie - still a year off - at Comic Con 2013.
Though it was Thor 2, Breaking Bad and The Hunger Games that made headlines at Comic-Con, the Guardians of the Galaxy gang were about to promote James Gunn's movie, which is still a way off - set for release on August 1, 2014.
A newly bald Karen Gillan - who shaved her head for the film - discussed getting in shape for the high-octane movie, telling us on the red-carpet, "I feel like I'm in an action movie bootcamp right now where I am on set everyday learning how to fight and I'm training like crazy and it's a really cool way to get into the character I think."
Her co-star Lee Pace praised the movie's director, saying: "James Gunn has got a great vision for the movie. He just showed us a little clip of what he's been working on for the past 10 days and it's excellent."
Chris Pratt is bulking up for his role in the Guardians of the Galaxy.
Chris Pratt, the 34-year-old actor who has bagged himself some pretty tasty roles in recent years, is bulking up for his role in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Pratt is the latest movie star to undergo a dramatic physical transformation and posted his progress in an Instragram photo this week.
It's not the first time the Parks and Recreation actor has changed weight for a movie role - he sported a hugely toned physique for his role as a member of Seal Team Six in Kathyn Bigelow's Osama Bin Laden movie 'Zero Dark Thirty' last year.

Glenn Close will play a role similar to Samuel L Jackson's in The Avengers.
Well this is a surprising casting, though one that sort of makes a ton of sense. According to the Deadline.com, Marvel Studios has landed Oscar winning actress Glenn Close to play a major new role in its latest franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy. The actress will reportedly play a leadership role in Nova Corp, the intergalactic space control.
The new James Gunn-directed movie goes into production next month, so Marvel have left it late to cast what is essentially a major role. The movie already boasts a pretty decent looking cast including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker and John C. Reilly. Pratt landed the lead role following a search that included Marvel looking at Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Jim Sturgess and Eddie Redmayne.
Sources tell Deadline that Close's role will be the closest thing to the one that Samuel L. Jackson plays in The Avengers, though perhaps with more of an edge. Close has proven she can play the hardnosed character in the likes of Damages, Fatal Attraction and, err, 101 Dalmatians and we see her being a real hit in Guardians.

If you were hoping for a romantic comedy with a harmless storyline, romance and inoffensive jokes, the here's a warning: read no further. 'Movie 43' is one of the most cringe-worthy and uncensored taboo-filled flicks to be released in the history of comedy. Here you will see several interlinked stories with characters' lives surrounding unusual proposals, interrupting blind kids' parties, bad parenting, teenage menstruation, a confused and slightly racist basketball coach, innovative business ideas and the kidnapping of a violent leprechaun. Once you see this movie it is unlikely you will find a subject that offends you ever again.
With twelve different comedy genius directors including Peter Farrelly ('Dumb & Dumber', 'There's Something About Mary', 'Shallow Hal'), Steve Carr ('Daddy Day Care', 'Dr Dolittle 2'), Steven Brill ('Little Nicky') and Brett Ratner ('Rush Hour') to name but a few and eight different writers, this jaw-droppingly crude and often obscene movie features a diverse star-studded cast, both British and American, who have banded together to shock you in the most hilarious ways you can think of. Whatever kind of comedy you're into, 'Movie 43' probably has something in it for everyone and it is set to hit the big screen on February 1st 2012.

The film is a goofy, but intelligent, combination of David Cronenberg's seminal slimy freak-out Shivers, the underrated teen zombie slugfest, Night of the Creeps, The Hidden, and one of the countless ribald, hicksploitation flicks that clogged the drive-ins in the '70s (I don't think I've seen such a cast of less-than-attractive performers outside of Quest for Fire.)
