VOTD: Why ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Looks So Damn Stunning

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Featurette

One of the most refreshing things about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, even when compared to the first film from 2014, is the vibrant, bright color palette that spans across the entire film. This is such a colorful movie with beautiful practical and digital sets, and some of the best visual effects in a Marvel Studios project. Director James Gunn‘s visual style really shines in his cosmic corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he has the RED Weapon camera to thank for that.

After the jump, watch a Guardians of the Galaxy 2 featurette that explains how the special RED camera helped James Gunn capture the gorgeous large formatfootage you’ll see on the big screen.

As James Gunn and some of the other key behind the scenes crew members talk about shooting the movie, the high-definition footage speaks for itself. Gunn goes against the grain when it comes to the visual style of his movies, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has positively mesmerizing visuals with smooth camera movements made possible by the small size and versatility of the RED Weapon camera.

Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is in theaters everywhere now.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Featurette: The Gang’s All Here and Having a Good Time

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Set Photo

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters in less than two weeks and our third most anticipated movie of the summer has been receiving mostly warm notices so far. James Gunn‘s sequel to his 2014 hit looks to double down on everything that made the first movie such a smash: strange but lovable characters, wild action, colorful science fiction, and heroes who spend as much time bickering as they do guarding the galaxy.

And while promotional featurettes don’t necessarily reflect the arduous process of making a big budget feature film, this particular one does make the process of making Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 look like a whole lot of fun.

Anyone looking for grand insights into the filmmaking process needs to look elsewhere. But anyone looking for snippets of new footage and cool behind-the-scenes shots from this massive production will find a great deal to enjoy in the video embed below. The usual suspects are all on hand to provide talking head interviews, but the real fun here involves watching everyone appear to be having a great time on set. Making movies is hard…but playing a galactic superheroes? That’s got to bring a smile to your face.

This featurette is the latest chapter of Marvel Studio’s current marketing campaign, which kicked off last week with the first screenings of the finished film. Since then, the movie news beat has been all Guardians of the Galaxy, all the time. We learned that that the film would have five post-credits scenes, which feels like Marvel dancing on the edge of self-parody. We watched a clip where Drax the Destroyer embarks on an ill-fated plan to battle a monster and another where Star-Lord and Gamora share a romantic moment. The full soundtrack list, titled “Awesome Mix Vol. 2,” was revealed and it certainly seems like a worthy follow-up to the first film’s bestselling collection of oldies. We even broke some news ourselves, discovering which character was originally going to be in the film before he was removed during the scripting phase (he will now play a role in the sequel).

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is set to open on May 5, 2017. It will make every single dollar on planet earth.

Miley Cyrus makes a cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Miley Cyrus makes a cameo in the upcoming Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, according to reporter Sarah Ruhlman. The news was confirmed to People, by Disney. According to Ruhlman’s tweet, director James Gunn and Marvel President Kevin Feige revealed that Cyrus is the voice of Mainframe.

Ruhlman said, “I was watching The Voice, and I [thought] she’s so likable, and her voice is awesome, she’s got the best voice. And then I asked Kevin [Feige], ‘What do you think about casting Miley Cyrus as the voice of Mainframe?’ He was like, ‘Well, if you think we can get her.’ … and I got her to do it.” You can check out the tweet below.

If you’re not familiar with Mainframe, it’s an alternate version of the Vision (played by Paul Bettany in the Marvel Cinematic Universe) that has evolved to become the operating system of a planet. Before Miley Cyrus, Mainframe was voiced by Jeffrey Combs in Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.

Earlier, during the press conference for the film, Feige asked Gunn, “Have you told anyone who Mainframe is?” Gunn responded, “I haven’t told anyone, yeah. Should we?” Then he said, “Oh, I think I actually did. I blew it. I told one person.” “It’ll get out,” Feige replied.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 cast includes the return of Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, and Sean Gunn as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff, who plays Mantis, Elizabeth Debicki as Ayesha, Chris Sullivan as Taserface and  KurtRussell as Ego, the Living Planet.

Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
