The Zune, the obsolete Microsoft MP3 player, may finally get a shot at being cool with an appearance in the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' movies
Forget wine or gold bullion – it’s time to sink all your savings into vintage Walkmans. Thanks in no small measure to Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ always having his unit to hand, the original portable Sony cassette player is getting a new lease of life. The TPS-L2 model, the specific player used by Pratt in the movies and the first to be manufactured by Sony in Japan, back in 1979, is of particular value.
Turns out, Chris Pratt is extremely good at making prank phone calls. The “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” star made an appearance on BBC Radio 1, and was ordered to make a call to a random location and start every sentence with the next letter of the alphabet. Pratt called an exotic pet store in the United Kingdom to ask about caring for his stick insect — but as the call went on, it sounded more and more like he was describing “Guardians” fan favorite, Groot.
Sylvester Stallone is going to stick around in the Marvel Cinematic Universe past Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, according to director James Gunn — although it’s not quite clear just where he’s going to show up next. “I’m not sure about him appearing in Vol. 3, we’ll have to see about that, but it’s our plan to see more of Stallone.

Chris Pratt AKA Star Lord, legendary outlaw, is receiving his own corner of Hollywood later this month when he'll be awarded a Walk of Fame star of his own.
Lex Luthor is about to join the MCU. At least, ‘Smallville’ actor Michael Rosenbaum is on board. During an interview with The Adam Corolla Show, the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ director James Gunn revealed that Michael Rosenbaum has snagged a role in the upcoming Marvel movie.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is ramping up its production line this year with three films instead of its usual two: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2’, ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ and ‘Thor: Ragnarok’. It’s a signal of intent from Marvel and one of confidence in the hugely successful cinematic universe model which began with ‘Iron Man’ in 2008.
As if hopes were not already high enough for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,’ audience expectations just went through the roof with the news that the upcoming Marvel sequel got a 100% approval rating from a recent test screening. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news, noting that scores this high are extremely rare from test screenings, and unprecedented for Marvel movies: the previous highest-scorers were ‘Avengers Assemble’ and ‘Iron Man 3,’ which reportedly both scored somewhere over 90%. Naturally, this got fans pretty excited – but returning ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ writer-director James Gunn had a somewhat self-deprecating response to the news.
It’s official: cameras are rolling on ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ the epic comic book movie that the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building up to thus far – and as proof, Marvel have released this short but oh-so sweet featurette from the set of the production.
It’s official – Thanos is sitting this one out. Marvel Studios has spent the best part of a decade introducing all the pieces of the Infinity Gauntlet… and after appearing in ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, the big, bad Thanos was finally given more than just a cameo. During an interview with Collider, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ director, James Gunn revealed that Thanos won’t be in the upcoming sequel… and there’s a good reason for that.
The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ star is never one to shy away from vocalising her opinion, but her latest words will no doubt rile many. Speaking of Donald Trump’s surprising rise to the White House, she claims that Hollywood should be blamed for ganging up on the reality TV host which led people to sympathise with him. While many can maybe agree that those hoping Hillary Clinton would win the election didn’t fight hard enough or get their points across effectively through the copious amounts of rumours and fake news generated by the opposition, it’s perhaps wrong to label liberal Americans as bullies.
Anyone who knew Chris Pratt before he became a proper movie star will remember his, well, ‘cuddly’ alter ego Andy Dwyer from the sitcom ‘Parks and Recreation’. Speaking in an interview with the cover story of the current Vanity Fair, he’s revealed that his heft almost lost him a job.
