Video: As fascinating as behind the scenes looks at Hollywood blockbusters can be, there are some secrets you probably don't want to know. For example, to make living creatures move as realistically as possible, visual effects artists will create full skeletal and muscle systems under a character's simulated skin, as is horribly revealed in this Guardians of the Galaxy 2 VFX breakdown reel by Framestore.

Star-Lord Peter Quill and the gang are back as Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2, out in cinemas now, in another outing of the galactic blockbuster. It’s one of the most fun films I’ve seen in years, combining hilarity with characters you care about, and spectacular visuals that trump the first instalment, Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014.
The biggest problem with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Vol. 1, if you will, was such a huge, surprise hit that most of the massive audiences who will flock to see Vol. 2 will all want to relive watching the first film. They will get their wish, sometimes, but other times Vol. 2 is trying something different, by looking deeper into its heroes and their relationships. But one thing holds true for both movies: They're both still fun as hell.
Warning: Spoilers within!
Actors on the level of Matthew McConaughey often turn down the biggest roles imaginable for any number of reasons. What we rarely hear, though, is their reasoning, and in a new interview, McConaughey explains why he turned down a role in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, but did choose to appear in The Dark Tower.
The movie is still almost a year away, but we're still learning more about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. We already know who Star-Lord's father is and why writer/director James Gunn picked that particular character. Now, we also know how one of the film's villains, Ayesha, gets mixed up with the team.
Since the end of Guardians of the Galaxy, everyone has been asking one big question: Who is Star-Lord's father? That answer was revealed last week not in a movie theatre, but at San Diego Comic-Con. Director James Gunn told us why he revealed that info now, and why it's so damn important.
