The “Guardians Of The Galaxy” Trailer Is Here!

The first trailer for Marvel Studio’s Guardians of the Galaxy debuted on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night, with star Chris Pratt on hand to introduce it.

The movie stars Pratt as Peter Quill, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, and a slew of others as something akin to misfit Avengers meets The Usual Suspects. Here’s the official synopsis:

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team–the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand–with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

Guardians of the Galaxy premiers in theaters on August 1st.

Surprise! Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Perform for Passengers On NYC Bus

Grammy-nominated artist Macklemore (along with partner-in-crime Ryan Lewis) surprised New York City bus passengers with a performance of “Can’t Hold Us” as they rode along Broadway.

A few passengers are visibly confused when the duo began their performance, but it doesn’t take long for them to get into the groove.

The performance was a part of the Grammy’s “Music Unleashes Us” ad campaign. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are nominated for seven awards at the upcoming Grammy Awards.

A Long Time Ago, We Used To Be Friends…

You gotta love Kickstarter.

The theatrical trailer has been released for the upcoming Veronica Mars movie and it looks awesome. If you didn’t watch Veronica Mars, (first off, shame on you – you are the reason they cancelled it!) you should know that the show to this day has a very loyal fan base which famously raised $5.7 million via the crowdfunding site Kickstarter.com to get the film made.

Veronica Mars starred Kristen Bell as a teen detective investigating crimes in her hometown of Neptune, California. The new trailer has her drawn back to her hometown after murder accusations point toward her former boyfriend Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring) as the culprit. Oh and just in time for her ten-year high school reunion.

The Veronica Mars film will premiere in select theaters on March 14th, 2014.

Everybody Loves Jimmy Fallon and Here is Another Reason Why

Jimmy Fallon Baby It's Cold Outside
Jimmy Fallon, hosting this week’s Saturday Night Live, performed a duet with Cecily Strong of “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” that is certain to become an instant holiday classic.

Their version puts a slight twist on the much loved duet, showing what happens when a guy with trouble committing has to pick up where “Well, maybe just half a drink more” leaves off.

Here’s the clip, from the good folks at SNL:

Just When You Thought Justin Timberlake Couldn’t Get Any More Awesome, He Does This.

“Josh and Kim, why don’t ya’ll make your way up here,”

And with that, Justin Timberlake led Josh Clemons and his girlfriend Kim Martin up onstage and into the marriage proposal stratosphere.

“This is Josh and Kim,” Timberlake said. “Josh called me earlier. He’s got something he wants to tell you.”


Not every guy can say that Justin Timberlake helped him land the girl of his dreams. We assume she said yes.
