Gag reel: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ dance competition

Nov 19 • by Ursa • No CommentsGuardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-ray edition will be out December 6, but BuzzFeed has an exclusive outtake from the movie. We probably all agree that one of the funniest scenes in film was when Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) distracts villain Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) from destroying an entire planet by singing from and dancing to The Five Stairsteps’ “O-o-h Child.” What we didn’t know when watching is that while trying to film that, the cast pulled off a dance competition of their own.

James Gunn, the director of the film, commented on his official facebook page: “To be clear, this wasn’t improv that was meant to be part of the film – it was actually a joke on Dave Bautista (Batista), where I got Chris, Lee Pace, and Zoe together and decided to turn the tables on the script. Dave was as surprised as the crowd when Ronan suddenly took up Quill on his offer of a dance off. When Dave is dancing he’s just being a good sport. In the outtakes, you can see the whole crowd all dancing along. It was one of my favorite moments on set.”

Pratt didn’t work with a choreographer on the scene, nor did the script really specify how exactly he was supposed to be dancing. “But I did have a pretty good sense of the era from which I would be drawing dance moves, given that Quill draws all of his pop-culture references from a certain time frame of basically 1985 and earlier,” he told BuzzFeed.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Close shot of Ronan the Accuser

Jun 26 • by Ursa • No CommentsGuardians of the Galaxy

New Guardians of the Galaxy image has landed. Earlier this week we could see Lee’s costume to details on Empire magazine cover. In the newest movie still, you can take a closer look at his make up. Very dark and badass, if you ask me. What do you think?

The magazine’s set to hit newsstands this week.

Lee Pace: I did learn about myself playing Joe MacMillian

Lee talked to HitFix his Halt and Catch Fire character Joe MacMillian and his other recent work.

HitFix: Now, I guess my first question is one of sorta logistics. Where were you able to fit all of this in with “Guardians,” with “Hobbit,” you’ve just been rather busy for the past year…

Lee Pace: Man, I can’t even tell you how. I mean it’s been this past year living out of a suitcase. We shot the pilot in April, went from Atlanta to London, did the first tests for Ronan, the kind of costume and make up and all that stuff. Went from there to New Zealand, shot my pick-ups for the “Hobbit.” Went from there back to London, did that whole crazy, f***ing movie. I mean the craziest thing I think I’ve ever been a part of was that movie. And then basically went from that right into this. Wait. No! No, no, I went from that into Stephen Frears’ movie about Lance Armstrong. Why I thought I needed another movie in there, I don’t know. And then I just finished this about a month ago so I’m like home and finally get a chance to have a life.

HitFix: How much of it is sort of a compulsion to work? How much of it is projects that you just couldn’t turn down, et cetera?

Lee Pace: One hundred percent both. I mean I’m a big believer of when jobs are coming, grind it out. Do it! Because they don’t always come for actors, you depend on getting cast. I mean, God, just this incredibly cool stuff kind of fell into my lap. This has been just an incredible experience and “Guardians of the Galaxy” was just… I mean… did you see the trailer?

HitFix: I did!

Lee Pace: It’s pretty wicked isn’t it?

HitFix: Have you gone around and sort of looked at the people who have been screen grabbing Ronan and just sort of like, “Okay here’s our first look and let’s pick it to pieces!”

Lee Pace: Oh no. I haven’t. I try not to do that because I don’t want to…

HitFix: People are intrigued because I mean it’s only like two frames and some people have taken those frames and they’re like, “Okay can you see this? Can you see that??”

Lee Pace: Yeah, yeah. I’m really excited about this character. I mean he’s nuts. I mean I’ve never played anything like it and I’ve had such a good, it’s one of those things where you don’t know how to approach something like this. This is not Joe MacMillan. You can’t think, “Well, you know, this is my relationship with my father…” It’s not that. There’s none of that, you now, kind of “This is how I would go about dealing with these problems.” It’s a complete kind of act of imagination. But in the hands of James Gunn, I’m such a fan of his movies. So it’s very much a creation of his and I found my self being like, “Alright, let’s do it. You tell me what you’re into here.

HitFix: Is that an immediate feeling that you have where you can sort of turn yourself over to a director or do you have to sort of see other things and go, “Okay, I know you know what you doing?”

Lee Pace: I mean you sit down with him for 10 minutes and you know he knows what he’s doing. I mean he’s just making the movie that he wants to see. I mean that’s a filmmaker. And it’s just a privilege to work with someone like that. You know, Peter Jackson is the same way. He’s going to make the movie that he wants to see. And to be a small part in one of those is so cool. Because they have thousands of people work on these movies, thousands and there’s so many different layers. So my performance is just a small, small part of that puzzle. Creative and fun, working on these massive movies has just been so much more fun than I’ve ever dreamed it could be.

HitFix: Well, just in terms of sort of imagination and foreigness and in terms of out there in outlandishness… You know… “Hexadecimal code” and whatever the heck these motherboard things are doing, is that a language you speak?

Lee Pace: No, but it’s hardly a language Joe speaks either. Joe doesn’t know a lot. He knows, he understands the basics of this, but he doesn’t understand the cutting edge technology that he needs Gordon to create. It’s Gordon’s business, he just needs to push Gordon to do it, to make it. What Joe has in mind is an awesome computer, the computer that no one else has the balls to build. He doesn’t even know quite what that is. He knows it needs to be cheaper, it needs to be faster and it needs to be smaller. That’s what he knows. And that’s going to be tough to do. And he knows it’s going to be tough to do and he knows it is going to be even tougher to get people to buy it.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ second official trailer

May 20 • by Ursa • No CommentsGuardians of the Galaxy

If this doesn’t get you excited, I’m not sure anything will.

The second full trailer finally here. It includes better looks at Rocket the Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), as well as Lee Pace’s intimidating, villainous Ronan the Accuser and a number of other characters and environments.

Coming to theaters August 1.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ first official trailer

Feb 19 • by Ursa • No CommentsGuardians of the Galaxy

In case you are searching for Lee – he IS in the trailer. Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) can be seen around 01:58, grabbing Drax the Destroyer (Dave Batista). We can’t see his face, though.

Update: James Gunn, the director of GOTG, discussed the first trailer with Gunn says he’s “saving” some things for the next trailer. “Glenn Close is in the movie. I’m saving some people for the second trailer, which I like better than the first trailer, frankly. The main people, I think, we’re saving are Ronan, played by Lee Pace; Yondu…” He also confirms Pace’s brief appearance in the first trailer. “That is Ronan holding Drax. Yondu played by Rooker, and Nova Prime played by Glenn Close.”

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ trailer to debut tonight

Feb 18 • by Ursa • 1 Comment »Guardians of the Galaxy

Well, well, well! We have been patiently waiting for this kind of news for months now. The first trailer for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be in theaters Friday and premieres on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!  tonight (Tuesday) at 11:35 ET/PT, with a special intro by star Chris Pratt, USA Today reports.

The movie teams five disparate personalities: Peter Quill (Pratt), aka Star-Lord, was taken from Earth as a 9-year-old, possesses a mysterious orb artifact and pilots the Milano, a muscle car of a spaceship. Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is connected to Thanos, arguably the cosmos’ biggest baddie. Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) is a muscular dude you don’t want to upset. And then there are the aliens Rocket Raccoon and Groot (computer-generated characters voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, respectively), who are best pals and potentially the biggest things to happen to pop culture since Chewbacca.

Their stories converge in the space prison Kyln. After the characters break out, they venture to Knowhere (the severed head of a celestial being that serves as a hangout for aliens) and visit the weird menagerie of the Collector (Benicio Del Toro). They also have to avoid two villains, Ronan (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), who are in hot pursuit of Quill’s orb, which has the power to destroy the galaxy.

Hopefully we’ll finally see Lee’s character tonight. Marvel introduced GOTG action figures few days ago, so now we are no longer clueless about Ronan’s look. His skin is blue (just like we were told in Summer) and his eyes are completely black. No eyebrows in action this time.

Get ready!


Update: 15 seconds trailer teaser is out!

Be sure to tune into ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight to see the full one.
