Chris Pratt Lands GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Lead

Chris Pratt Lands GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Lead

After countless shortlist stories and rumors concerning who would play Star-Lord in Marvelís Guardians of the Galaxy, the search for the lead role is finally over, and fittingly the actor is someone who never appeared on any of the aforementioned lists. Deadline reports that Chris Pratt has been tapped to play Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, a character who was born of a human mother and alien father, and is a master strategist and combat expert who wears an ability-enhancing suit and pilots a psychically-linked ship. As Guardians features a cast of strange and cosmic characters, Quill was an important role to fill because he will likely act as the audienceís introduction to the vast, unfamiliar Guardians world. Hit the jump for more.

There were plenty of actors rumored for the role that made a lot of sense (John Krasinski, Zachary Levi, etc.), and Deadline notes that Marvel made test deals with Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Lee Pace, and Eddie Redmayne, but Chris Pratt actually seems like a perfect fit. His comic timing is excellent as evidenced by his work on NBCís Parks and Recreation, and heís shown his talent on the dramatic side with Moneyball and 2012ís Zero Dark Thirty, for which he also proved that he can beef up for a role if need-be.

Looking back on the previous shortlists and taking Pratt into consideration, itís clear that writer/director James Gunn is planning on injecting a good amount of humor into Guardians of the Galaxy. A rumor surfaced recently that Marvel was looking at possibly tapping Jim Carrey or Adam Sandler to do voice work in the film (one of the guardians is a talking raccoon), so Iím interested to see the tone that Gunn settles on for the finished film.

With the role of Star-Lord secure, Gunn and Marvel now look to filling out the rest of the cast, which includes the powerful Drax the Destroyer, a giant tree named Groot, the aforementioned Rocket Raccoon, and the female lead Gamora. The story is also rumored to involve the villain Thanos. Expect to hear more soon as production gears up to begin later this year. Guardians of the Galaxy will be released in 3D on August 1, 2014.

Yeah, it's not so much a superhero movie as it is a space opera. If she'd enjoy the Star Wars, Star Trek, or Firefly genre, she'll most likely enjoy this.

The only thing I hated is that the stupid leaked post-credits scene was real.

The mid-credits scene was funny, though.

Best. Movie. Soundtrack. Ever. Seriously, better than The Big Chill soundtrack.

(It helps that I listen to those songs all the time with the exception of Cherry Bomb)

Elvin Bishop
The Five Stairsteps
10CC
Redbone

and the forgotten gem.. Eric Carmen's old band The Raspberries!!!

I was very happy to have them explain why a kid in 1988 was listen to 70's soft rock. It was a little thing, but it resonated with me.

I truly enjoyed this movie. Left with a big smile on my face.

I know nothing about these characters so i had no preconceived ideas about how they should act.

Only negatives was maybe a little too much exposition in parts. Characters standing around explaining CGI things and landscapes.

oh, and why does Marvel need to hire "name" actors like Brolin and Lee Pace if they are just going to cover them in a ton of makeup and have them be unrecognizable? Seems like any joblo could do that?

Surprisingly my favorite characters in this movie were Drax, the Racoon and Groot. Hell, they were all good i guess, Pratt was funny and made a nice rogue.

Funny, exciting and alot of heart. I want to spend more time with these characters.

oh....the Collector and Benicio Del Toro performance....what the F?????
