Box office preview: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' aims for a cosmic debut

The motley crew of rebels and mercenaries in Guardians of the Galaxy make their theatrical debut this weekend, and all signs point to a stellar opening. They might not be the most popular or well-known Marvel characters, but strong reviews and an even stronger marketing campaign have helped to drum up interest for these unlikely superheroes, which include an earthling (Chris Pratt), a talking raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and a tree (Vin Diesel). As the widest August release in history with a 4,080 screen launch, Guardians is tracking at $65 million, but many analysts think that it has the potential to earn much more.

The James Brown biopic Get On Up, starring Chadwick Boseman as the Hardest Working Man in Show Business, opens in 2,466 theaters this weekend, providing some much-needed alternative programming in this summer of superheroes and sequels.

Here’s how things might play out.

John C. Reilly shows Letterman a seriously old-school 'Guardians' clip

It looks like Marvel’s going to be quoting some old fashioned sci-fi flicks in its latest release.

John C. Reilly plays Corpsman Dey, a law-enforcement official, in the soon-to-be-released Guardians of the Galaxy. And it’s his arrests of the film’s main characters that leads them to assemble into the titular “Guardians” squad. He stopped by the Late Show Monday night to give David Letterman a glimpse at life on the job.

Which fowl Marvel character resurfaces in 'Guardians of the Galaxy'?

This post contains potential spoilers for the plot of Guardians of the Galaxy.

In Guardians of the Galaxy, Rocket is a wise-cracking, raccoon-like creature voiced by Bradley Cooper. If Rocket is a departure from the typical caped superhero, he’s not the first anthropomorphic Marvel comic-book character to have his moment on the big screen. Back in 1986, Howard the Duck starred in a notorious bomb, produced by George Lucas, that made the once-cool character a pathetic punchline. He’s been missing from the movies ever since.

But according to StitchKingdom.com, Howard is getting a second chance—from the Guardians themselves. The website received the credited cast list for the Aug. 1 Marvel film, and buried near the bottom was Howard the Duck and a nod to his creators, Steve Gerber and Val Mayerik. Disney did not immediately respond to a request for comment, so it remains unclear whether Howard makes a major appearance, lurks in the background at some alien cantina bar, or just exists as heroic inspiration from Peter Quill’s comic-book reading days on Earth. If it’s the latter case, let’s hope young Peter read the comic-books and never saw the movie. READ FULL STORY

Video: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' TV spots showcase character origins

Guardians-of-the-Galaxy.jpg

There are still two more weeks before Guardians of the Galaxy cruises into theaters, but there are two more new TV spots to pad its landing with audiences. For those counting at home, that’s now 22 teasers, trailers, featurettes, extended looks, and TV spots for the big-budgeted Marvel gamble—at least according to the film’s YouTube page.

By now, you must know the renegade characters and what’s at stake—save the galaxy. The new clips explain why members of the self-proclaimed Guardians might have a score to settle with Ronan, the cloaked villain threatening their existence. And Drax the Destroyer proves to be idiom-deficient. READ FULL STORY

Video: Chris Pratt is the man with 12 percent of a plan in 'Guardians' clip

The stakes have been raised. Not only do Marvel’s motley gang of space outlaws have to save the galaxy; they may have to salvage the summer. With the box-office down significantly after a dreadful July 4 weekend, the industry is now counting on Guardians of the Galaxy and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes to rescue its fortunes.

In the latest trailer, courtesy of Fandango, Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill recruits a team of ferocious losers—”I mean, folks who have lost stuff,” he says semi-eloquently—to face a blue-faced villain (Lee Pace) who wants to destroy their world.

Fortunately, he has a plan. Or at least 12 percent of a plan. And 90 percent of that 12-percent plan is to rock out to classic 1970s tunes, in this case, “Cherry Bomb,” by The Runaways.

Watch below, and keep an eye out for a quick first look at Michael Rooker as blue-faced Yondu. READ FULL STORY

'Guardians of the Galaxy' footage in theaters on July 7

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t hit theaters until August, but if you’re excited about the prospect of a movie starring Chris Pratt, Green Zoe Saldana, a raccoon voiced by a sexiest man a live and a tree voiced by Dominic Toretto, then you’ll be excited to learn that Marvel is screening some footage early. 150 IMAX theaters will play a 17-minute sequence from Galaxy on July 7, at 7 PM. Tickets are free and are first-come-first-serve on the Facebook page, which probably means it’s already sold out. READ FULL STORY

'Guardians of the Galaxy's UK trailer turns down the music -- VIDEO

Guardians-of-the-Galaxay.jpg

The first wave of teasers and trailers for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy emphasized the comic book movie’s most eccentric qualities, a wild bunch of universe-saving criminals that include a tree, a raccoon, and a green-skinned Zoë Saldana. If you never read Guardians in print, it didn’t really matter, according to the studio; instead, it chose to play up the “these aren’t you older brother’s superheroes” angle. “Hey, we’re playing Blue Swede’s ‘Hooked on a Feeling’ and Norman Greenbaum’s ‘Spirit in the Sky,'” the clips blared. “That’s how you know this movie is cool!”

Perhaps the Guardians are even less well-known in the U.K. — or perhaps those songs are — because they now have a straightforward, ironic-music-free trailer that gives the best primer yet for what this movie is actually about. Chris Pratt’s scoundrel thief gets to deliver all the rah-rah speeches, but Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) is the wise-ass scene-stealer. Watch the de-stylyzed trailer below: READ FULL STORY

Casting Net: Josh Brolin to voice Marvel's supervillain Thanos; Plus, Anna Camp for 'Pitch Perfect 2', more

• Josh Brolin (No Country for Old Men) is reportedly voicing a CGI Thanos in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. He’ll be joining fellow voice actors Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon) and Vin Diesel (Groot) in the James Gunn-directed pic, which also stars Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt, and Lee Pace. Thanos, a nihilistic purple supervillain, was introduced briefly in the post-credits sequence of The Avengers and is expected to be the main foe in Avengers: The Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015), which will be a more prominent role than his Guardians part. EW’s Darren Franich actually proposed Brolin as an option to voice the part back in 2012 — although folks seemed to prefer Gary Oldman, “anybody from Game of Thrones,” Ian McShane, and Ray Winstone to the W. star.

More gun fights. More spaceship explosions. More Peter Quill swagger. And more Groot.

Since last week, fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of the newest trailer for Marvel’s upcoming intergalactic adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy — and its arrival did not disappoint.

(Still no glimpse of Thanos, though…) Watch the trailer below:
