I will always have love for the Guardians of the Galaxy. The first movie was my first time doing a Marvel Press interview. I really felt a connection with director James Gunn. His love for his vision of this story is so evident in what he does. In this second movie he has continued to make the universe of the Guardians of the Galaxy more rich and exciting. We get some great emotional moments in the movie that as a fan I can completely connect with. Taking such care to make the music become interwoven into the story is something that few people can do. James Gunn does it masterfully.

Oh Yeeeah! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Begins Shooting!

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2A few years ago I had the distinct pleasure and a once in a lifetime opportunity to go to California to see Guardians of the Galaxy and meet and interview the cast. It was such an amazing experience and to this day is the best ever press trip I was on. Meeting Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, James Gunn, Zoe Saldana, and Vin Diesel was simply amazing. We missed Kevin Feige on this trip but I did get to see him on another trip that I went on for Avengers: Age of Ultron. So, suffice it to say I am bursting with excitement to see this movie. I follow James Gunn on Facebook and he is excellent with his posts. He did an amazing thing with Guardians of the Galaxy and Vol. 2. promises to be even better.

There are some great things happening in this new movie including the addition of Kurt Russell as Star-Lord’s father. I think he is the most perfect casting for this role. I’ve loved him since The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes that I watched on The Wonderful World of Disney. And then his roles as Snake Plissken in Escape from New York and then Jack Burton in Big Trouble in Little China, plus Gabriel Cash in Tango and Cash he was awesome! So he’s gonna crush it as Star-Lord’s dad.I just cannot wait. Below is the press release for the movie. Continue reading Oh Yeeeah! Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Begins Shooting!
