In the span of a single day, the town of Silverton is ravaged by an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes. The entire town is at the mercy of the erratic and deadly cyclones, even as storm trackers predict the worst is yet to come. Most people seek shelter, while others run towards the vortex, testing how far a storm chaser will go for that once-in-a-lifetime shot. Told through the eyes and lenses of professional storm chasers, thrill-seeking amateurs, and courageous townspeople, “Into the Storm” throws you directly into the eye of the storm to experience Mother Nature at her most extreme.
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 (Chris Pratt) finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan (Lee Pace), 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 (Bradley Cooper), a gun-toting raccoon; Groot (Vin Diesel), a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora (Zoe Saldana); and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista). 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. From writer-director James Gunn, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ opens in the UK and Ireland on July 31st before opening in the US on August 1st. The likes of Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio del Toro, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Josh Brolin, Ophelia Lovibond, Gregg Henry, Marama Corlett, Emmett J. Scanlan and Enzo Cilenti also star.
When we meet Peter Quill, he has a lot of insecurities to overcome as a result of his upbringing. He’s had a rough deal and over the course of the film he realizes he’s worth more than he’s been led to believe…
Chris Pratt: Yeah. When we first meet him he’s a 9 year-old kid, watching his mother die of cancer. He’s a kid who’s kind of been told his whole life that he needs to toughen up, because he’s got a big heart. He never knew his father, and his mother asks him to take her hand as she’s dying – and he doesn’t do it, and immediately after he’s sucked away into space and raised by Yondu, who also tells him that he has to toughen up. He’s been living his whole life pretending to be tougher than he is when in fact he’s sort of stunted in that moment of his mother asking him to take her hand. He’s a kid at heart, you know? And he gets to have a free reign and he gets to do what he wants – he gets his own ship, he gets to eat what he wants, there’s no rules and he enjoys that (laughs).
