Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 hits theaters this Friday! And to celebrate the release of one of the biggest movies of the year, we at The Nerds of Color were invited to attend the press conference for the final installment in James Gunn’s space opera trilogy! Keep reading to see what Gunn, as well as the cast, and producer Kevin Feige, had to say about the final chapter in perhaps the best superhero trilogy of all time!
You’ll have to forgive me for geeking out just a bit here. But I’ve had the pleasure of seeing this insane movie twice now, and I still want more. I cannot begin to describe to you all how much I enjoyed this movie the first time, and even how much more I enjoyed it the second time around. The Suicide Squad is James Gunn off the leash! And I think comic book movies will be better for it!
It’s not every day you’re afforded the opportunity to chat with one of your favorite filmmakers. And this past week, I got that chance! The Nerds of Color, along with other media outlets, was invited to participate in a roundtable discussion with the one and only James Gunn — Director of Guardians of the Galaxy and the upcoming The Suicide Squad!
We got a new trailer for The Suicide Squad coming in hot, people! Apparently there was some confusion and the entire thing “leaked” today, causing mass chaos on Twitter. But now director James Gunn, himself, has just tweeted it out, so it’s now out in the open, you can now see everything Laura Sirikul described in her article for yourselves. It’s definitely your mission to watch it all and enjoy with a big-ass smile on your face, like I did! 😀
Fans of the upcoming Suicide Squad film — myself included — may have noticed some footage going around on the internet this morning. It looks to be a new trailer for the James Gunn-directed reboot The Suicide Squad.
Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. premieres on May 21 and Hulu’s WonderCon@Home panel for the adult animated series revealed some big news, including that Jon Hamm, Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Fillion, and Bill Hader will all be guest stars!
Last month, we brought you the trailer and poster for the upcoming fantasy film Yamasong: March of the Hollows. The film, which is a follow-up to a 2010 short, seeks to bring puppetry back to mainstream genre audiences with an all-star cast and backing from a couple of dynastic names in the world of cinematic puppetry.
On the latest edition of Hard NOC Life, Keith sits down with the two men who launched the world of Yamasong half a decade ago: writer-director Sam Koji Hale and composer Shoji Kameda.
In 2010, Los Angeles-based filmmaker Sam Koji Hale released an award-winning and critically acclaimed short film called Yamasong that featured Japanese-style puppetry set to the pulsating rhythm of the contemporary taiko group On Ensemble. Now, five years later, Hale has returned to the world of Nani and her tortoise compatriot Shojun in the full-length feature Yamasong: March of the Hollows. Only this time, he’s backed by an all-star voice cast and the scions of two legendary puppeteering families: Heather Henson and Toby Froud.
My good friend Adam WarRock (whom I will be performing with at Otakon this year) is coming towards the end of his annual donation drive. A lot of you, I’m sure, have already seen him posting about it and have donated or at least thought about donating already.
I just want to throw in my two cents (not literally, although he did tell me that there were a couple of people who literally donated a penny) as to why I think you should consider it.
Vitals: Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox is an 81-minute feature-length animated movie based on the major DCU crossover event called Flashpoint, which happened two years ago and was helmed by writer Geoff Johns that resulted in a universe-wide reboot called “The New 52.” It can serve as either a stand-alone movie, or a primer for those who want a quick recap of how “The New 52” came to be without having to read all of Flashpoint in collected trades.
