In its third weekend of release, Avengers: Infinity War leaped to #5 all-time at the global box office, passing the original Avengers film to become the highest grossing super hero movie in history. In the US, the film passed The Dark Knight to climb to #8 on the domestic charts. With Deadpool 2 this week and Solo: A Star Wars Story coming the following week, we’ll have to see what kind of staying power the super hero epic has, but it’s already left an indelible mark on the box office. While I don’t quite want to get into an all-out spoilers discussion (I hate to ruin the film for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, and if you haven’t, GO! See it in the theater in the biggest format you can!), for those of us who have seen it, you may have wondered exactly how much screen time the massive cast got per character.

Zoe Saldana was originally a ballet dancer before her interest in theater drew her into films. She has been part of, perhaps, three of the best action/adventure films of this millennium in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Star Trek, and Guardians of the Galaxy. Between reinventing Uhura in Star Trek, portraying Gamora in the MCU, and Avatar (and its upcoming four sequels), Saldana has taken the torch from Sigourney Weaver in becoming science fiction’s action queen. Her dance background makes her extremely gifted with fight choreography and in motion capture, and her acting skills don’t require make-up. She’s held her own with Tom Hanks in The Terminal, Mark Ruffalo in Infinitely Polar Bear, and Christian Bale in Out of the Furnace. I hope the grind of the Ava-sequel shoot doesn’t prevent her wholly from doing other films, because she’s always an outstanding addition to any ensemble she joins.

Why is Guardians of the Galaxy KT Community’s Movie of 2014? Because it’s freaking awesome! I’m much more verbose than that, but at its core, Guardians is just pure, unbridled fun. Most movies can’t deliver; you’ll get a couple of special ones each year. This is a film that will endure long after most of the Oscar Best Picture nominees have faded past memory. Disney and Marvel trusted their source material, backed it with enough money to make it flawless and delivered a brilliant ensemble, science fiction romp. This scene is a perfect example of why this film worked, the odd mix of balls-out adventure and heartfelt moments that made Guardians great. Personally, I only have seven percent of a plan for tomorrow….
Guardians of the Galaxy, the #1 movie of the year (words I never thought I’d be typing), will hit home theaters on December 9th. There are some cool-sounding special features, but the second in a row Blu Ray release without a Marvel One-Shot. Those were awesome! BRING BACK GROOT IN ONE SHOT! HULK AND GROOT TEACH HUMAN TO ALIENS. It writes itself! Continue reading Guardians of the Galaxy Blu Ray/DVD Date and Details
