Guardians of the Galaxy

Marvel Studios has unveiled a new poster for their new sci-fi film, Guardians of the Galaxy, which is set to open on August 1, 2014. The film, which sees the Marvel Cinematic Universe expanding into the cosmos, follows a ragtag group of heroes who are forced to come together to stop a force that could destroy the entire universe. The film is a bit Star Wars in nature, and is one that is going to set the stage for bigger events in the Marvel Universe moving into the studio’s Phase 3 films. Mainly, a force that may be going toe-to-toe with The Avengers in The Avengers 3. A new trailer for the film is set to be released on Monday morning, on Facebook, at 1pm EST/10am PST, and will be proceeded by a live Q&A by stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, and director James Gunn.

Guardians of the Galaxy has long been one of my favorite comics of the Marvel Universe, so to say the film is my most anticipated of the year is an understatement. I’m waiting on pins and needles to see this film, and the new poster above just shows me exactly why I love these characters: They’re just fun. There’s a larger than life, space opera feel to the team and their place in the MCU, and I can’t wait to watch the film unfold.

The film stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillian, Benecio del Toro, Michael Rooker, and Lee Pace, with the voice talents of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel. The film, directed by James Gunn, is set to be released on August 1, 2014.

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
