What a finale!! Last night, I attended Marvel’s GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY encore event at Atlanta Film Festival with Director James Gunn & Actor Michael Rooker and we ALL had a BLAST! The highlight of the evening was seeing Michael’s face when a gorgeous birthday cake appeared and he was celebrated by the entire audience. It was CLASSIC! And OMG, he is SOOO funny on & off the screen. It was just as fun to see him and James go back & forth with their hilarious conversation!
The ultimate encore and conversation with the crew took place at the Plaza Theatre in downtown Atlanta. We were treated to a screening of the original Guardians of the Galaxy followed by the Q&A. Check out their grand entrance and shout out to our great City of Atlanta (NO camera’s allowed so I had to use my iPhone):
