With the success of About Last Night, as well as the June release of Think Like A Man Too and the sequel announcement for Ride Along, Kevin Hart is at an all-time high career wise.
Some actors who reach that level may want to take a year or two off, sit on their accrued wealth and enjoy the spoils of their success. Hart’s stand up comic work ethic, as well as his ambitious path, are two reasons why he won’t be stopping anytime soon.
“My goals are through the roof with what I want to accomplish,” said Hart during the About LastNightinterviews. “When you look at the comedians that have gotten to a certain level of success. They have done so much. From the Pryors, to the Murphys, the Chris Rocks. Literally this list can go on and on. From George Carlin to Seinfeld. Bill Cosby. They’re legends for individual reasons.”

Like such super groups as The Defenders and the Squadron Supreme, the Guardians of the Galaxy has always taken a backseat to Marvel Universe’s super teams of The Avengers and the (uncanny) X-Men. Credit Marvel for hiring filmmaker James Gunn, who proved he can expertly blend tragedy, vigilantism, and kinetic action with his low budget superhero offering Super.
Guardians of the Galaxy, opening August 1, has Chris Pratt (Zero Dark Thirty) playing Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, an unpredictable (and from the looks of the trailer, extremely witty) space traveler whose discovery of a mysterious orb leads to his inevitable conflict with a world beating villain named Ronan (Lee Pace). Helping Star-Lord’s in his battle are fellow outsiders Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Baustista), Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), and Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel).
The trailer is fantastic, and one of the many reasons why I’m pumped for the film is it’s shot by Ben Davis, a cinematographer who previously worked with director Matthew Vaughn on Layer Cake,Stardust, and Kick-Ass.
Check out the trailer, which features one of B.J. Thomas’ most popular tracks. From what I’ve seen from photos as well as this clip, I’m definitely (excuse the pun) “Hooked on a Feeling.”
