At the Toronto Fan Expo yesterday I was lucky enough to chat with the legendary Michael Rooker; it was only for a minute or two but was still awesome.
He talked about how excited he was that Guardians of the Galaxy is now the highest grossing movie of the year in North America.
I said “the best thing about this news is the fact that the studio actually took a risk with a project which is rare these days”.
“That’s right! They took a big risk with it and it paid off; hopefully more studios will take risks with other projects too” Rooker responded.
I asked how the sequel is coming along and he said “my friend, the director James Gunn is just back from vacation and is working on it as we speak so expect to hear more news soon”.
So far, Guardians has made $547,710,000 at the global box office and I think I’ll give myself a pat on the back as I said in my Hit or Miss blog a few months back that it would make about $600 million internationally. I finally got something right!
So that’s all there is; once again the Toronto Fan Expo was a huge success and I also got to meet Michael Rooker who I have been a fan of for many years.
