Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy: Marvel's adventurous new team-up movie Guardians of the Galaxy will debut its first trailer on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight, and ahead of that new images have been released. One features Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket Racoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) and Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), while the other gives us our first peek at their spacecraft, the Milano. The movie opens on August 1. [Collider]

Son of God: Last year, the 10-hour TV miniseries The Bible sparked controversy with scenes depicting the Devil, portrayed by an actor who resembled President Barack Obama. With a two-hour version, Son of God, heading to theaters on February 28, it's no surprise that hours of footage were left on the cutting-room floor, but one of the producers says "they went out of their way" to make sure those controversial scenes were not in the big-screen version.

HBO: Speaking of President Obama, we know he's a fan of the Showtime series Homeland, as well as Netflix's House of Cards, but now we've learned that he's also a big fan of at least two shows on HBO. At a state dinner last week, he asked HBO's CEO for copies of True Detective and Game of Thrones -- the latter doesn't even debut until April 2 -- so he could watch them over the weekend. [New York Times]

Locke Trailer: The new trailer for Locke features nothing more than footage of Tom Hardy driving and talking a bit, but somehow the actor manages to convey a wealth of emotions. It's a tense thriller, evidently composed entirely of scenes showing Hardy alone in his car; it's out in the U.K. on April 18 and in the U.S. on April 25. [Lionsgate UK]
