Things We Saw Today: “Gandalf Doesn’t Do Weddings,” Ian McKellen Turned Down $1.5 Million Officiation Request


Heads up to those of you in the middle of wedding planning: Gandalf will not go to your wedding, and he most certainly won’t bust a move. In a Daily Mail interview, Ian McKellen reveals he was offered $1.5 million to officiate Silicon Valley tycoon Sean Parker’s LOTR-themed wedding as Gandalf, but refused because “Gandalf doesn’t do weddings.” Anyway, here’s a throwback to the beautiful wedding between Patrick Stewart and Sunny Odell which McKellen did officiate. (via Jezebel)

James Gunn shared some concept art from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Gunn says in the comments that it’s “evocative of the hundred of pulp magazine covers within that style” and “Baby Groot can be a little oblivious.”

That’s what we saw today, what did you see?
