Guardians Of The Galaxy – Meet The Team

I’m off to the Guardians Of The Galaxy screening this evening, which is set to open in UK cinemas next Thursday (31st). It’s the first of the summer blockbusters I’m really excited about, and these quirky characters are the reason why:



For those who don’t know much about the movie, it’s the latest collaboration between Disney and Marvel Comics. It’s a space adventure following Peter Quill and a group of misfits (the guys above) as they try and keep a powerful orb away from bad guy Ronan.


Here’s the trailer – and we’ll have more news on the movie later this week…

Ben Whishaw IS Paddington

Paddington_New_Poster_1206.2014Following the news that Colin Firth had stepped away from voicing everyone’s favourite bear from Peru, it has been announced that the actor whose dulcet tones will be discussing the merits of marmalade sandwiches is now going to be… Ben Whishaw.


Best known for his role as Q in Bond thriller Skyfall, and as Jean-Baptiste in the thriller Perfume: The Story Of A Murderer, does this mean we’re getting an edgier Paddington Bear?
