Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer 2: closer to truth

This week another Guardians of the Galaxy trailer has been released with cuts far closer to what the final film will look like than the first couple of glimpses we got earlier this year. As you’ll see below, these changes are mostly in the background - when Djimon Hounsou (aka Korath the Pursuer) steps forth to dismiss Chris Pratt’s character Star-Lord’s claim to fame, it’s no longer a cloudy day. Instead they’re standing inside a collection of structures, massive and ancient.

DREDD 2: a call to action from Karl Urban

DREDD 2: a call to action from Karl Urban

The first DREDD movie with Karl Urban was a disaster in theaters - it was marketed in a way that pushed the 3D element in the film and ticket sales were dumped.

The creators of the first film are struggling to prove to the powers that be that cash invested in a second film would be worth the time and effort - but there’s a petition, and Karl Urban himself is onboard.
