Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" is so hooked on that feeling it's going back for more. James Gunn's "Guardians" sequel wrapped back in June for its May 5, 2017 opening, but the cast and crew have returned for reshoots.
Actress Karen Gillan (Nebula) tweeted about it Monday:
A fan asked director James Gunn if it was true that GotG2 was in reshoots. Gunn is always open with information, and he confirmed it's true, and explained why it's pretty much true for everyone:
Absolutely. I've picked up shots in every movie I've ever directed, as Marvel has in every movie they've ever made, as we go thru editing. https://t.co/NpU2z8Tt5W— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) November 15, 2016
It's called additional shooting and it ALWAYS happens on big budget movies, unless the movie is 100% perfect, or people are lazy. https://t.co/lmg42eUDSH— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) November 15, 2016
A fan joked, "but the internet told me reshoots mean that a movies awful?!" Gunn replied:
Sometimes they are if they're reshooting huge sections of a movie that's not working and not puttying the cracks of a movie already great. https://t.co/xHFl89MtT8— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) November 15, 2016
Gunn was asked how far in advance they schedule reshoots. Here's his reply:
We schedule all the actors for reshoots before we ever shoot the movie. https://t.co/HHqTKyG4yK— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) November 15, 2016
Another commenter added, "sometimes based on the direction of an edit a few things need to be added to smooth the flow." Gunn replied:
My biggest problem is I keep thinking of more funny stuff for Drax to say. https://t.co/uk3mNyCfjn— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) November 15, 2016
Just add more Baby Groot! "Reshoots" get a bad rap, but they are not indicative of much. On a scale of 1 to 10 our worry for "Guardians" is at -5. They could seriously just show two hours of dancing Baby Groot and we'd pay to see it twice, but the rest of the movie sounds great too.
