Toronto got a huge surprise last night as six-time World Champion Wrestler Dave Batista came to do a day of Press in support of his latest, the eagerly-awaited GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY from Marvel! The WWE Star has directed his sights to a promising career as an Actor and in the Blockbuster he plays the role of Drax the Destroyer. In addition to being known for his brute strength and resilience, the Character has the ability to blast energy from his hands.
Batista was up and at it early leaving his Hotel in the Entertainment District with his Entourage – not without some Starbucks first – before spending much of his day at the Bell Media Building, taping interviews and also doing a live appearance on CP24 Breakfast. On the Show, he revealed that he had a team of five people whom spent four-and-a-half hours applying makeup each day. “I think this is the best Film Marvel‘s ever done”, he proclaims. Visit CP24 Breakfast’s Site under the “VIDEOS” section for the complete interview here.
Making an appearance at an Advance Screening last night held at Scotiabank Theatre, Batista fielded questions on the Red Carpet before heading on in to introduce the Blockbuster, even posing for a group photo with Fans.

Marvel Canada release GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY opens in theatres tomorrow, August 1, 2014.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and Mr. Will want to give Readers across North America a chance to win THE LEGO® MOVIE on DVD/Blu-Ray Combo Pack! We saw the Film back in February and it holds a special place in our heart and now we want you to experiencing how after seeing it, EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!!! Read our Review here.
The LEGO® Movie, the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller is an original 3D computer animated story that follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO® minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.
Chris Pratt (Moneyball) stars as the voice of Emmet. Will Ferrell (The Campaign) stars as the voice of his primary adversary, President Business, an erudite, anal-retentive CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Liam Neeson (Taken) voices the president’s powerful henchman, known as Bad Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet.
Starring as Emmet’s fellow travelers are Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby), as Vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Emmy nominee for 30 Rock), as tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, 30 Rock), as the mysterious Batman, a LEGO® minifigure with whom Lucy shares a history; Nick Offerman (NBC‘s Parks and Recreation) as a craggy, swaggering pirate, obsessed with revenge on President Business; and Alison Brie (Community) as a sweet, loveable member of the team, with a powerful secret.

Jimmy Kimmel got the exclusive tonight premiering the Trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy. And for only 24 hours on his YouTube Channel, you can watch it first!

You can just sense how bittersweet this is going to be. Spike Jonze writes and directs HER, a Rom-Com starring Joaquin Phoenix, about about a Man who falls in love with an Operating System designed to cater to his every need. Rooney Mara, Amy Adams, Chris Pratt, Portia Doubleday and Scarlett Johansson also star, the latter who voices the Operating System, Samantha. I’ve heard of people loving their Computers, but this is beyond.
Marvel certainly was well-represented at the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con this weekend and in addition to making several exciting announcements about upcoming releases, the Stars were out in full force to ring it all in! Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Benicio del Toro, Chris Evans, Lee Pace, Scarlett Johansson and Tom Hiddleston were among the A-Listers in attendance this weekend at the world-famous Convention.
Sorry, are we allowed to comment how amazing Pratt looks? His Trainer deserves a round of applause! Cannot stop staring.

Chronicling the Mission by a NAVY SEALS Team which led to the killing of Osama bin Laden, Kathryn Bigelow‘s Zero Dark Thirty was just about on everyone’s Wish List to premiere at TIFF 2012. Although it wasn’t to be, we see good reason why this has been kept under wraps as really it looks that good a Film.
