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.

Usually I love their stuff, but this one I could only make through the first five minutes. Probably mostly personal bias since I loved this movie. Stopped watching about where he's complaining about Drax not understanding the hand across the throat. Obviously a culturally ignorant comment if you just think about the differences in offensive hand signals across different groups of people. Also though the "police line up cliche" comment was reaching. I can't remember a movie I've seen like that since the 80's or 90's.

Yeah, It was worth the extra.

First movie I've seen twice in theaters since TDK.

A lot of people are complaining about CinemaSins. Their videos are getting longer and longer and less and less funny. I think it means they get more ad revenue with longer videos. Seriously, their Transformers 4 video was like 40 minutes long. That channel is more "here is a plot summary of the movie" than a real critique. Seeing how terrible its sister channels are, you can see they have completely lost their way. I am close to unsubscribing.

At least with the HISHE video about Guardians, they openly admitted at the beginning that they were mostly reaching because they loved the movie. That made their video much more enjoyable.

I haven't watched a Cinema Sins video in a while, but when I saw this one was 15 minutes I did a double take. I can't imagine I'll be watching these too often in the future. They used to be awesome.

HISHE and Honest Trailers both made fun of the movie and both were hilarious. After watching them again, I feel better knowing it's not just my love of GotG coloring my judgement of Cinema Sins.

"Because **** you, we're Marvel. That's Why. Whadda you gonna do, watch DC?!"
