IGN recently spoke with Chris Pratt who talked about shooting Guardians of the Galaxy. Below are some highlights.
The film is set for an August 1, 2014 release.
Pratt on shooting Guardians: "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."
Pratt on figuring out the tone of the movie on set: "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."
Pratt on the possibility of teaming up with other Marvel characters like Iron Man or Captain America: "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."
