'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Director Masterfully Trolls Marvel Executive Impersonator
Huffington Post - 10 months
The plan was simple: Open an Instagram account under the name Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios and producer of a gazillion blockbusters, and begin messaging James Gunn, director of the fantastically popular “Guardians of the Galaxy” films, thinking no further about a producer and a director of such caliber using Instagram’s chat feature as a standard medium of communication. And yet whoever hatched it likely underestimated Gunn’s appetite for internet trolling. Both sides appeared locked in a surprisingly lengthy battle of one-upmanship over Marvel secrets in the ensuing conversation.  The director shared screenshots over Facebook Thursday afternoon to document his encounter with the mysterious Feige impersonator, including many attempts to offer false information about current Marvel projects. Gunn announced in April that he will be helming a follow-up to “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2.” Rest assured, Groot will not lose his head, probably.  --...

Chris Pratt Said Filming This Movie ‘Ripped Open Some Wounds’ About His Father’s Death
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Most people go to superhero movies to escape reality, but for Chris Pratt, working on “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” actually helped him deal with the loss of his father.  Dan Pratt, the actor’s late father, died in 2014, while Pratt was filming “Jurassic World,” after years of living with multiple sclerosis.
