Quote of the Day

"I definitely took a big gamble. But I chose the project I thought I could write best. There were things that you would say the name, and people would say, 'Oh, yeah.' And I thought abut choosing those that, in a mercenary mindset, would be the wisest ones to choose, but I identified more with this property, and I thought it had the most fun. There's just so many things you can do in terms of world-building, and tonally—I thought you could have a lot more fun with it. But it was a pretty big risk."—Nicole Perlman, co-writer (with James Gunn) of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy movie, on why she chose to work on this property "out of a list of a half dozen potential ideas they were thinking of developing."

The film had an $11.2 million opening last night on its advanced showings, which is the biggest Thursday debut of the year.

I've been looking forward to this film for a long time, and I hope to have the chance to see it sometime this weekend. Are you planning on checking it out? Already seen it? Couldn't care less? Discuss!
