James Gunn Takes a Shot at Studios Trying to Rush Shared Cinematic Universes One of Hollywood’s favorite buzz phrases at the moment is “shared universe,” which rose to popularity a few years ago when Marvel Studios kicked off its own with The Avengers. The movie, which brought Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and other heroes together is still one of the highest grossing films of all time. In the years since, other studios have pushed to create their own shared universes (that may not necessarily involve superheroes).

Check out the songs on the secret Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack It is pretty clear that everything about GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is awesome. From the movie to the soundtrack, everything just clicks. A lot of that is thanks to director James Gunn who has been refreshingly revealing about the film's production since before it hit theaters this summer.

'The Planet of the Apes' Series Could Be More Than Three Films, According to Andy Serkis We are living in the franchise-heavy film era, which can sometimes feel exhausting (see: ‘Transformers’) or can sometimes be very enjoyable, depending on the product. In television, having a clear endpoint in mind is a good thing (see: ‘Breaking Bad’); meanwhile, studios are now planning their franchises out years in advance.

Watch How ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Should Have Ended Complete with the James Gunn seal of approval, the How It Should Have Ended crew has taken on Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s a good thing Gunn liked it, too, because the video points out several instances in the film where things could have logically gone a very different way.

“Yo Soy Groot.”: Watch the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY’s Groot Limited Vocabulistics in 15 Languages With Guardians of the Galaxy available today in Digital HD, Disney has released a featurette with Groot (Vin Diesel) saying his limited vocabulary of "I am Groot" in fifteen languages.  Rather than just have the same clip play again and again with a different language each time, this bit is really well put together as it has the line at various points of the movie, and then puts up a graphic of the sentence in the respective language.  I don't know this will spur anyone to buy the movie in Digital HD rather than just wait a few weeks for the Blu-ray (I admit it's tempting to buy the film now),
