Working with a pair of helicopters, a crew of U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) staff and contractors captured 45 horses in the Blawn Wash area near Minersville, about 220 miles southwest of Salt Lake City, agency spokeswoman Lisa Reid said.  Over the next eight days they hope to gather a total of 140 Mustangs in Blawn Wash, one of four designated management areas in the region.

  • Marvel cranks up sarcasm and 70s sound for 'Guardians of Galaxy'

    Cast member Pratt poses at the premiere of "Guardians of the Galaxy" in HollywoodBy Mary Milliken BURBANK Calif. (Reuters) - A lead actor known for playing the slovenly sidekick, a director who only made small films, a talking raccoon and a 1970s pop music soundtrack - together they form an unlikely tableau for a mega-budget space adventure movie. If it delivers on that promise, "Guardians" will show that the Walt Disney Co studio can score with its more obscure comics like it has with the popular "Iron Man" and "Captain America." The film could also be a big validation for those who dare to veer from standard superhero fare with offbeat characters and quirky storytelling. "It is a new kind of tone that I think a lot of people are going to attempt to do," said lead actor Chris Pratt, who plays the reluctant hero Peter Quill. Director and writer James Gunn, who previously worked on films with modest $3 million budgets, said he found studio executives were keen to go off-kilter, and loved, for example, introducing a Walkman and pop music in an outerspace adventure.
