Chris Pratt has talked about shooting upcoming Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy, in an interview with IGN. Pratt plays Star Lord/Peter Quill in the Marvel cosmic team-up movie which is currently filming in England. He says about the shoot:
It's been really great. It's hard to even put into words, especially for someone like me who has the vocabulary of a sixth-grader. It's been a real trip. There's a lot of super talented people working on it - artists. That's what I always loved about comic books as a kid, the drawings. I didn't ever read them that much. I wasn't too big into the stories, but I loved the artwork and the covers. I'd like to draw a lot as a kid myself. So to see that, as they did making these comic books, they've hired the best artists in the world to do the concept artwork and to design these worlds. It's so imaginative and so unreal. We're working really hard and I'm in a bit of a daze, but I just can't wait for people to see what we're doing out there. I think that footage they showed at Comic-Con is very accurate to the movie that we're making. I thought that footage was pretty badass.
Talking about the tone of the movie, Pratt said:
Yeah, I think tone is the major thing we have to accomplish, a consistent tone, going from silly and comedic to high-stakes drama and action, and everything in between. It's really up to James, and I trust everything that he's doing. I think we're getting good stuff. I don't know what to say about it other than it might be...Oh! It's the greatest movie of the 21st century! That's what I'll say. It'll be the Citizen Kane of movies other than Citizen Kane.
The Marvel cinematic universe is known for cross-referencing their films and including characters from one franchise in others. On the possibility of Guardians of the Galaxy appearing in other Marvel features, Pratt said:
Man, that would be really cool. What's nice is that it is all the same universe. Because it falls under the Marvel umbrella, there is the possibility, just like in the comic books, that these stories could intersect.
In a move that Captain Kirk would appreciate, Pratt also mentioned that his character has sex with a couple of aliens! Directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt as Star Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as Groot, Michael Rooker as Yondu, and rumoured to be voicing Rocket Raccoon, Bradley Cooper, the ensemble movie is scheduled for release on 1 August 2014.
