Guardians of the Galaxy fans, the Blu-Ray version of the movie (to be released on December 9th) has an outake of a dance scene between Star-Lord and Ronan the Accuser, with Gamora and Drax joining in:
Buzzfeed interviewed Chris Pratt:
“We were filming what was essentially, you know, the climax of the entire movie … and I was dancing,” he said, still laughing. “I was standing there … in front of 200 extras in full alien makeup. And none of them knew what the hell was happening either. They thought they were on a serious movie because of all the time and the effort that had been put into their makeup. So I just had this energy of, like, What am I doing?!”
Pratt said he didn’t work with a choreographer on the scene, nor did the script really specify how exactly he was supposed to be dancing. “But I did have a pretty good sense of the era from which I would be drawing dance moves, given that Quill draws all of his pop-culture references from a certain time frame of basically 1985 and earlier.”
He ended up doing a kind of Michael Jackson-esque thing (and did a pretty good job of it, too), while Ronan went with running man moves.
Dancing Baby Groot is still my favorite, though:
