‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Trailer Promises Lots of Laughs

If you like your Benicio Del Toro white-haired, your Zoe Saldana deadly, and/or your Karen Gillan bald (and also deadly!), then Guardians of the Galaxy may be the move for you.

Disney gave us the first look of Guardians of the Galaxy on New Year's Day, and now they've released the first official full-length trailer for their latest Marvel adaptation, which offers up audiences a closer look at the cast of ecclectic characters.

Glenn Close Wears Her Movie Costumes

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrity Gossip,

Glenn CloseGlenn Close keeps her outfits from her TV and film roles.

The 65-year-old actress "hates" shopping and doesn't buy many clothes for herself, so she likes to wear the costumes donned by her screen alter-egos. "I really hate shopping. Maybe a handbag. I don't spend a lot of money on myself. I'm very lucky I can wear some of the costumes from the Patty Hughes character in the series Damages," she admitted.

Glenn has enjoyed a career which has spanned four decades, but she believes social networking website Twitter has had a huge impact on the film industry. The screen icon thinks micro-blogging site has made it harder to get certain types of movies commissioned, meaning independent films face more "challenges" than ever before.

"Studios make their money with Spider-Man and Transformers. The big movies make the money and they can't afford to make the smaller movies because of things such as marketing costs. There will always be independent films and there are the film festivals that are important venues for those movies but it's never going to be easy. It's challenging and I know there's an audience for independent films - but they're not in the 18 to 25 demographic. There are so many different ways to watch films now. If you don't have a movie that's Tweetable in the first five minutes you're told you've got a problem. People are always fascinated by stories. The challenge is there are a lot of things competing for people's attention against films."

Tom Cruise’s Strangely Missing Accent

Valkyrie cast

After viewing a teaser trailer for Valkyrie, I now see why Tom Cruise’s film may be in need of a few delays.

In this WWII movie, the actor plays Col. Claus von Stauffenberg - a German officer who plots to take down Adolf Hitler.  Granted, I haven’t seen the film yet, but I highly doubt the character ever took voice lessons by watching videos of Mission Impossible.

You can listen to his laughable performance after the jump.

This Week on HD DVD and Blu-ray: January 29, 2008

Life of Brian Blu-rayHappy Tuesday, all!

The big news this week is the release of Monty Python’s Life of Brian on Blu-ray. The classic film, walking the hyper-sensitive line between important social issues and side-splitting comedy, is easily one of the best from the Python team, and should have a place on every movie lover’s shelf. Why not own it in gorgeous 1080p resolution and Dolby 5.1 surround sound? The harmless religious satire is that much better.

On a side note, am I crazy, or has Warner started consistently releasing films on HD DVD weeks later than those released on Blu-ray? For instance, this week’s Blu-ray release, The Invasion, won’t come out on HD DVD until February 19. And it’s not this one time either—the list of upcoming titles from High-Def Digest shows a serious lag in Warner HD DVD releases. I realize that Warner is phasing the format out, but have they officially put HD DVD on the back burner?

Check out the full list of high-def releases after the jump.
