The Last Sci-fi Blog: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Is the Movie 'Green Lantern' Should Have Been
This column has been watching Guardians of the Galaxy with great interest for the past year or so for a number of reasons, but it ultimately boils down to two succinct points: 1. There needs to be a popular science fiction adventure franchise out there that doesn't have "star" or "wars" in the title. 2. Someone needed to officially wash the taste of Green Lantern out of our mouths and deliver a proper comic book space opera. And yes, the rumors are true: James Gunn's new film delivers on both of those.  The Marvel movie universe has already dabbled in plenty of science fiction ideas, with its high-tech Iron Man armor and it's lab-experiment-gone-wrong hero, the Hulk. Even Thor got in on the sci-fi, transforming the Norse gods...

Poster-Crop Quiz: Can You Guess These Sci-fi Comedies?
For god's sake, readers, strap yourselves in! We're blasting off into another Poster-Crop Quiz! This week, in honor of those incorrigible Guardians of the Galaxy, we thought we'd celebrate our favorite films that similarly managed to blend sci-fi and/or fantasy with comedy. We've gathered posters from 10 of our favorite genre mash-ups and then let Rocket Raccoon test his latest hoverblade gadget on them. It... didn't work so well. See if you can identify the posters from their cropped images. The first person to correctly name all 10 in the comment section below will receive a shout-out in next week's quiz. It's no infinity stone, but it's definitely worth something to the right collector. Guardians of the Galaxy may just be the best...

Need More 'Sharknado'? See the Awesome Poster for Roger Corman's 'Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda'
If you survived last night’s Sharknado sequel, don’t leave your storm room just yet – there are more deadly sea monsters on the horizon. Roger Corman is set to unleash the imaginatively titled Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda: A Love Story onto unsuspecting Syfy audiences this Saturday night – and we’ve got some nifty artwork to share from what promises to be the most romantic movie about genetically modified sea creatures with a taste for human flesh released this year. In the new film, the offspring of Sharktopus goes fin-to-fin with the Pteracuda – which is just what the name describes: a half-barracuda, half-pterodactyl hybrid that’s all business. Robert Carradine and Katie Savoy star in the new film, but both have been upstaged by an...

This Year's Most-Watched Movie Trailer Might Surprise You
  Expect to see infinite headlines about the Sam Taylor-Johnson remake of E. L. James’ best seller Fifty Shades of Grey until its debut on February 13, 2015. What originally started as Twilight fan fiction (yes, really) eventually sold over 100 million copies worldwide in novel form. Centered on the BDSM relationship between a featherbrained college grad, Anastasia Steele, and a brooding entrepreneur, Christian Grey, James’ book has been adapted for the big screen. The first trailer for the erotic drama made headlines a week ago. That clip has racked up over 36.4 million YouTube views since then, according to tech firm Zefr (so states the Hollywood Reporter). The website goes on to report that the Fifty Shades trailer had the best opening week for any...

Watch James Gunn's 2008 Movie About a Superhero and a Talking Raccoon
People are calling Guardians of the Galaxy a "weird" movie, but in many ways it's the least weird movie of James Gunn's career. The director and cowriter of the latest Marvel cinematic universe installment has always had a strange sense of humor, and the fact that he got his start at Troma Entertainment only nurtured that taste. We'd argue that even his scripts for the two live-action Scooby-Doo movies are at times weirder than anything in GOTG. If you want to see Gunn's sensibility at its weirdest, though, look to his short films. His first directorial credits include a couple sketches for Troma's Edge TV program in the U.K. One called Sgt. Kabukiman Public Service Announcement and is just Troma founder Lloyd Kaufman ranting about NYC's homeless...

'Into the Woods' Trailer: Check Out Disney's Next Big Movie Musical
Christmas just got a whole lot merrier now that the first teaser trailer for Disney's Into the Woods has arrived online. Due in theaters on Christmas Day, Into the Woods is an adaptation of the popular Broadway musical that mashes up a bunch of iconic fairytale characters into one fantastical story about a couple (played by Emily Blunt and James Corden) who venture into the woods to see about lifting a family curse. Watch the teaser trailer below. This first look at what's sure to be one of the biggest films of the holiday season does a great job teasing the spectacle--from the music to the incredible ensemble cast, it's impossible to watch this and not immediately want more. Directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago, Nine, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides...

See 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Reviewed in Comic Strip Form
Now that Guardians of the Galaxy is touching down in theaters, we've got a long, cold wait ahead without a Marvel movie in sight until May 2015 (Avengers: Age of Ultron). Does Guardians have enough meat to tide us over till then? Hard to say. It's certainly fun, but we're not convinced "fun" is nutritious enough to see us through to the next year. We might have to supplement our cinematic diets with regular movies starring regular folks. Do they even still make those anymore?   Click image to enlarge     MORE FROM AROUND THE WEB: ZergNet (function() { var zergnet = document.createElement('script'); zergnet.type = 'text/javascript'; zergnet.async = true; zergnet.src...

Watch a Music Video Featuring All the Best Costumes from This Year's Comic-Con
There's a whole lot to do at San Diego Comic-Con, including panels to watch, toys to buy and celebs to get autographs from, but one of our favorite things to do is costume watch. It's sort of like people watching, except all the people you're watching have elaborate costumes on. It really is impressive to see the amount of work that goes into these costumes, and just how much fun these fans have becoming the characters they're wearing. The different poses they come up with are spectacular. Each year SneakyZebra does a great job assembling some of the best cosplayers on camera in order to create a music video that gives you just the tiniest taste of what it's like to walk around Comic-Con and rub shoulders with the country's greatest cosplayers.

Marvel Roundup: 'Guardians' Sequel Details, 'Avengers 3' Buzz and More
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy hasn’t even hit theaters here in America yet, but director James Gunn is already making elaborate plans for the sequel. The filmmaker recently teased what fans can expect from the next installment in a recent interview with Film Divider. The new story will, at the very least, feature more of Peter Quill’s father, Yondu (pictured below), and Nebula, says Gunn. “Kevin Feige has stuff. I wrote up a lot. He knows all the stuff and if I died tomorrow they could go make a movie. They could write the story of Peter Quill’s father and it would all be there. I think Yondu is a very important character, a really important character in this universe, and I think Nebula is really important too and so I think we’ll see...
