'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.

'Blood Ties' poster: Clive Owen and Billy Crudup's not-so-brotherly love -- EXCLUSIVE

The latest poster for French director Guillaume Canet’s upcoming crime thriller Blood Ties plays up the family angle with a scrapbook-style layout featuring cast members Clive Owen, Zoe Saldana, Mila Kunis, Marion Cotillard, James Caan, and Billy Crudup.

Set in 1970s New York, Blood Ties follows 50-year-old Chris (Clive Owen) as he attempts to put his life back together after being released from prison, where he was serving time following a gangland murder. Waiting outside the prison gates for him is his younger brother, Frank (Billy Crudup), a cop with a bright future who’s hoping his brother has changed his ways. Despite setting Frank up with a job and a roof over his head, and reconnecting him with his children and ex-wife (Marion Cotillard), Chris just can’t seem to shake the life of crime he had before. Upon the discovery of Chris’ relapse into crime, Frank banishes his brother from his life only to find that despite not wanting anything to do with Chris, he can’t escape their joint destiny.

Blood Ties, which premiered at Cannes last year, hits theaters and VOD on March 21.

Spock faces peril in new 'Star Trek Into Darkness' clip -- VIDEO

The latest clip from Star Trek Into Darkness doesn’t reveal a whole lot more about the general plot, but it does give us a peek onto the bridge of the USS Enterprise.

From the trailers we’ve already seen, we know there will be a lot of peril, and in this scene it’s Spock whose life is in danger at the mouth of an active volcano. Beaming him back to the ship seems impossible, based on what the engineer and pilot are saying. And Bones, the king of real talk, delivers the most dramatic line of the clip: “He’d let you die.”

Casting Net: Zoe Saldana in talks for 'Guardians of the Galaxy'; Plus, Brad Pitt, Nicholas Hoult, Leighton Meester, more

 It’s looking like Zoe Saldana will join another intergalactic franchise. The Avatar and Star Trek actress is in talks to play the female lead in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. She would join a cast that already features Chris Pratt (Zero Dark Thirty) and mixed martial artist Dave Bautista. Saldana is in negotiations to play Gamora, who, in the comic books, is the sole survivor of her humanoid race, the Zen Whoberi. She’s known as “the deadliest woman in the whole galaxy.” Also of note: Gamora has a stint in the comic books as a minion and adopted daughter of sorts of Thanos — that purple-skinned alien which the closing credits of The Avengers seemed to set up as our heroes’ next arch-rival. Perhaps this is further reason to hope for some more franchise cross-overs in Marvel’s future? [THR] READ FULL STORY
