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.

Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Benicio del Toro, Guardians of the Galaxy is set to be released on August 1st.

KurtWagner1225 - 7/20/2014, 11:28 AM
there have been some reactions that say while the cast is amazing,its Dave Bautista as Drax who steals the show
KurtWagner1225 - 7/20/2014, 11:32 AM

dio-yeah the type of character Bautista is playing fits him well and he seems to be doing well with it,i was unsure when Cooper was cast as Rocket but seeing the 17 min preview, at points, Bradley Coopers voice does come out but most of the time, it doesnt even sound like him

Missing Wednesday and Thursday of this week for dentist appointments. Then, taking August 1st off so I can see it when everyone else is at work and chat about the movie on here.

So I have only have to work Monday, Tuesday and Friday of this week. Then only Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week. Thursday is going I'm going to be on cloud nine thinking about the movie all day anyways. It's going to be a solid two weeks for me.

That is so [frick]ing bad ass.

Drax the [frick]ing Destroyer
DaVinci31 - 7/20/2014, 11:45 AM
Most of @Cakes_Comics other artwork is pretty sweet, too.

Bekss - 7/20/2014, 11:45 AM
Only 10 days and 10 hours more. I can't wait
KurtWagner1225 - 7/20/2014, 11:52 AM
i cant wait to see Chris Pratt as Star Lord.i have a bit of a mancrush on him
Superior - 7/20/2014, 12:02 PM
I know there's some people on here that thought they were talking about The Destroyer from Thor.

Bautista makes this clip for me honestly

AlexanderLykins - 7/20/2014, 12:14 PM
That's awesome!
DeusExSponge - 7/20/2014, 12:35 PM
0mega - I can see a part of his face, but only through squinting. But damn it would be awesome to see Annihilation on the big screen, but Marvel doesn't have some of their big players so it probably wouldn't work out too well.
NateBest - 7/20/2014, 12:40 PM
Dave is great as Drax. All of the characters have scenes that they steal... I've been trying to figure out who my favorite was and I can't name one. ALL of them are funny at times, serious at times and kick @$$ at times... I will say that Bautista has one of the most touching scenes of the entire film...
DrunkenNukem - 7/20/2014, 12:48 PM
Im not going to keep watching those damn tv spots...they are [frick]ing spoiling me part of the movie...
KurtWagner1225 - 7/20/2014, 12:50 PM
NateBest-thats awesome, do u think the film ever feels tonally inconsistent or does it all gel well and work?
JoshWilding - 7/20/2014, 12:51 PM
That's awesome to hear @NateBest! I had my doubts because I really didn't enjoy Dave's recent run in WWE, but everything I've seen of him in the clips and TV spots makes me think he'll steal the show. His line delivery and timing seems spot on when it comes to getting a lot of laughs!
KurtWagner1225 - 7/20/2014, 12:53 PM
DrunkenNukem-i am trying not to but i cant help myself
NateBest - 7/20/2014, 12:57 PM
I thought everything gelled really well (cast, effects, soundtrack, etc.).

I wouldn't worry about being spoiled by the trailers, there is a LOT that happens in the film that hasn't made it into the trailers/videos. There's more to all of the scenes they've released, even the ones that seem complete.
KurtWagner1225 - 7/20/2014, 1:02 PM
NateBest-thats great to hear, last thing, how are ronan, nebula, korath and thanos in the film?
ThePowerCosmic - 7/20/2014, 1:20 PM
If they make one for every character...I WILL FIND THEM (*in general Zod voice)
ThePowerCosmic - 7/20/2014, 1:22 PM

Oh please don't tease! What if this was a precursor to Annihilation! Release the Annihilation Wave!

I think Annihilus is with Fox...but we can dream.
Namor - 7/20/2014, 1:23 PM
So funny in that "I got a plan" scene how groot changes his tone of voice when saying "its better then 11pct" and Quill patting him on the back and saying groots the only one who gets it, and Groot eats vegatation off his
Namor - 7/20/2014, 1:25 PM
God Groot is His little half smile when Quill shows hes happy with him makes me want to hug him. I'd truly be a tree hugger if I hung with
Hellboy6666 - 7/20/2014, 1:29 PM
I've only seen the second trailer. I've tried to avoid all of these spots and clips and extended trailers but it's so damn hard. Can not wait for this [frick]ing movie.
NateBest - 7/20/2014, 1:57 PM
The villains are awesome 😉
GadoTheLion - 7/20/2014, 2:03 PM
Boss artwork
RobertLiefeld - 7/20/2014, 2:04 PM
He really needs a couple of guns on the end of those daggers. A laser machete strapped to his back wouldn't hurt either.
ThePowerCosmic - 7/20/2014, 2:20 PM
I hope this pulls an Avatar and hits over at least over a billion. For the passion James Gunn has for it....he deserves it! Plus it would secure more cosmic stuff from both Marvel and DC.
cld247 - 7/20/2014, 2:54 PM
Guys this movie is not gonna make a billion! No way!Captain America The Winter Soldier didn't even make a billion. come on.... Quit lying to yourself! It will make 500 to 600 million worldwide.
cld247 - 7/20/2014, 2:56 PM
12 days! I can't wait... So [frick]ing excited!
cld247 - 7/20/2014, 2:59 PM
@NateBest Does Josh Brolin sound like a badass as Thanos?
