Best of 2014: The year's coolest, and funniest, movie sidekicks

When it comes down to it, the hero of a story would be nowhere without the help of a trusty sidekick or two. 2014 has had its fair share of number 2s that both lifted up those heroes—and, arguably, stole their spotlight.

With that in mind, here’s a list of the year’s best sidekicks —the ones who proved that behind every great hero, there’s someone just as great (and often a whole lot funnier).

Glenn Howerton was almost Star-Lord in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

While it’s difficult to imagine anyone else in the role of Star-Lord than Chris Pratt, if the Parks and Recreation star didn’t fill the role, it would have gone to another comic actor and master of the night(man).

Check out this exclusive 'Guardians of the Galaxy' deleted scene featuring the daughters of Thanos

Guardians of the Galaxy hits Blu-ray on Dec. 9. To whet your appetite, EW is excited to share an exclusive deleted scene from this summer’s rock-and-roll space adventure. Originally meant to appear early in the movie, the scene takes a closer look at the sibling rivalry between Zoe Saldana’s eventually heroic Gamora and Karen Gillan’s generally villainous Nebula.

Guardians director James Gunn told EW yesterday that he’d like to see more Nebula in the Guardians sequel, so consider this deleted scene a possible preview of future sister strife. READ FULL STORY

Marvel's Phase Three: A two-part 'Avengers' threequel, Black Panther movie, female Captain Marvel, and more ...

Marvel Studios spends most of its time clamping down on secrets, so when they open up the vault, it’s usually for something big. In this case, it was colossal—and bound to bust loose on its own.

Marvel announced so much news on Tuesday morning at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood, it’s difficult to know where to start: A two-part Avengers 3? Official confirmation that Iron Man and Captain America will do battle in a Civil War saga? More exploration of the cosmic realm in Inhumans?

It was also a major announcement in terms of diversity. Marvel is giving us its first superhero film to star a black actor, with Chadwick Boseman portraying Black Panther, and another that places a female character in the title role, Captain Marvel (although no actress has been chosen yet.)

The only way to approach it is to run through it in chronological order (before the Infinity Gauntlet renders time meaningless)

Box office report: 'Guardians' nears $300 million, 'Identical' flops

Guardians-of-the-Galaxay.jpg

Guardians of the Galaxy claimed the No. 1 spot once more this weekend with an estimated $10.16 million as it makes its way towards the coveted $300 million mark, while the faith-based musical drama The Identical (Cinema Score: B)the only new wide releasefailed to catch on in any significant way, opening in 11th place with a shoddy $1.91 million. The rest of the top five were all holdovers, earning in or around $5 million.

If things seem somewhat unexciting at the box office this weekend, your eyes and untouched movie dollars aren’t deceiving you: It was basically planned to be that way. “This is the no man’s land between the end of the summer season and the start of Oscar season and the big holiday movie season,” Rentrak’s Senior Media Analyst Paul Dergarabedian told EW earlier this week. “This is just one of those weekends that are always expected to be slow. It’s nothing to be alarmed about, the sky is not falling, it’s just post-Labor Day weekend and we have to live through it.”

Box office update: 'Guardians' leads slowest weekend of the year

The weekend after Labor Day has the dubious distinction of being the lowest grossing period of the year. No one in the industry expects anything notable from these three days. The fact that The Identical, a barely on the radar faith-based musical drama about an Elvis-like figure, is the single new wide opener (on pace for a 10th place showing with a $534K Friday) is only further proof that everyoneeven moviegoers it seems—is taking the weekend off.

But, this barren landscape gives way for audiences to catch up with a few familiar titles, and, as expected, Guardians of the Galaxy will claim the top spot on the charts for the third weekend in a row. With an estimated $2.71 million Friday, the Marvel heroes are on their way to an $8 or $9 million weekend, which will bring the domestic total north of $290 million. The rest of Friday’s top five, all holdovers including If I Stay, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Let’s Be Cops, and The November Man, will all net out around or under $5 million this weekend.

Here are the top five:

1. Guardians of the Galaxy  $2.71 million ($287.1 million domestic total)
2. If I Stay $1.61 million ($35.5 million domestic total)
3. Let’s Be Cops $1.55 million ($62.75 million domestic total)
4. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles $1.5 million (169.7 million domestic total)
5. The November Man $1.24 million ($14.9 million domestic total)

Check back in tomorrow for weekend estimates.

Box office preview: 'The Identical' opens, but 'Guardians' will rule

If you thought Labor Day weekend was slow at the box office, the weekend after Labor Day might as well be moving backwards.

“Historically, the post-Labor Day weekend is one of the slowest of the year,” says Rentrak’s Senior Media Analyst Paul Dergarabedian. “The studios really have been stepping up and living up to that idea of the 52-week release calendar, but on this particular weekend it seems all bets are off.”

The Identical, a faith-based musical melodrama movie about a preacher’s son who grows up to be a rock star, is the only new wide release and Guardians of the Galaxy will surely reclaim the No. 1 spot. It’s very possible that The Identical, which stars Ray Liotta and Ashley Judd, won’t even break the top five.

“This is the no man’s land between the end of the summer season and the start of Oscar season and the big holiday movie season. It’s this transitional period,” Dergarabedian says. “Hollywood is unapologetic about it. It’s a time when people can catch up on movies, check out Guardians of the Galaxy or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or some of the other films that are out there. It’s like the day after the big party. It’s kind of slow.”

Even though the just-closed summer season was one of the worst in a decade and the overall year is still down, Dergarabedian notes that this slump is at least one that everyone plans for. “Just like the entire box office year, it ebbs and flows. This is just one of those weekends that are always expected to be slow. It’s nothing to be alarmed about, the sky is not falling, it’s just post-Labor Day weekend and we have to live through it,” he says.

And, with that said, here’s how things might play out.

'Guardians of the Galaxy' defends its box-office roost over Labor Day weekend

Labor Day weekend, 2014: that time when a movie featuring an anthropomorphized raccoon and a talking tree became the highest-grossing release of the year. In its fifth weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy continued to stay in pole position thanks to weak holiday competition, taking in an estimated total of $22.2 million over the four days ($16.5 million for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) and bringing its grand domestic take up to $280.5 million. That number would have only made it the fourth highest-grossing movie at the same time in 2013 (after Iron Man 3, Despicable Me 2, and Man of Steel), but in a relatively slow year for blockbusters, it’s more than enough to grab the current brass ring from Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And now that even Marvel’s long-shots are paying off big-time, we can look forward to movies featuring ever-increasingly recondite and niche comic-book characters and storylines. Oh, you thought that Howard the Duck teaser was just a joke? READ FULL STORY
