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.

They're lucky Disney owns them so they can be allowed to say that.
MrCBM56 - 7/30/2014, 3:36 PM
Seeing this tomorrow at 7:30, the anticipation is high indeed.
MrCBM56 - 7/30/2014, 3:37 PM
@TheAbaryMan369 Huh? Would it have mattered?
EzioKenway1225 - 7/30/2014, 3:39 PM
MrCBM56-I HATE YOU..but enjoy and tell us how it was!!
DrKinsolving - 7/30/2014, 3:39 PM
[frick], I don't think I'll be able to see this until next week

EzioKenway1225 - 7/30/2014, 3:41 PM
this is a pretty cool video

You can't compare Star Wars. Only Star Wars can compare with Star Wars because Star Wars was an original masterpiece and wasn't based off of a comic book that just recently been revamp.

Tomorrow at 8:00 for me. So pumped.

Honestly, I can see this being the situation;
- Those who believe the only 'space' story is Star Wars will get their sequels and spin-offs to keep them entertained
- Those in a new generation or those who are open to the idea of playing around with action sci-fi films will be able to sit back and enjoy Guardians Of The Galaxy.

Granted their will be those that enjoy both, however Guardians Of The Galaxy does seem to fill in the aspects that Star Wars was lacking such as comedy and outlandish aliens. They'll end up both complimenting each other I'm guessing and their will be aspects that work better in one film than the other.

i can see this having the effect that Star Wars had on some kids.. Star lord could be their Han Solo and Groot could be their Chewbacca etc.

FANDANGO UPDATE

New Marvel Studios Blockbuster is Outpacing Franchise Debuts of "Thor" and "Captain America," and Ranks as the Biggest August Pre-Seller in Company History

LOS ANGELES - July 30, 2014 - According to Fandango, the nation's leading moviegoer destination, Marvel Studios' sci-fi action epic "Guardians of the Galaxy" is on track to take off this weekend, scoring 94 out of 100 points on the company's Fanticipation movie buzz indicator.

James Gunn's highly anticipated adventure is capturing 93% of this weekend's ticket sales on Fandango, and outselling previous Marvel franchise debuts, "Thor" and "Captain America," at the same point in the sales cycle. The film is poised to be the biggest August pre-seller in Fandango's history, far outpacing advance sales for the previous record-holder, Matt Damon's 2007 "The Bourne Ultimatum," and pacing to be this year's #1 non-sequel pre-seller, beating the previous record-holder, "The LEGO Movie."

MrCBM56, Perhaps not, however I would imagine a lot of studios threatening to sue if a rival studio mentioned something like that, especially when they have a new movie coming out.

"It's Star Wars for a new generation"

I'm looking forward to this movie, but critics say that EVERY time a new sci fi movie comes out.
JamesMan - 7/30/2014, 3:54 PM
Tomorrow at 7:00! Very excited to see it.

AND THIS !!

By Alex Edghill

Wednesday Morning Update: Guardians Of The Galaxy rose 45% on Tuesday to 29,823 tweets, up from 20,609 tweets on Monday while its Facebook likes increased to 775,721 from 766,750. For the first time in a week it also nabbed the top spot on the day amongst all upcoming films on Twitter, something which has eluded it not because of low numbers but because of a few high profile trailers which grabbed some serious attention (Hobbit, 50 Shades, Hunger Games). By comparison The Avengers which had 51,744 tweets and 1,365,187 likes its Tuesday before release, Green Lantern with 2,909 tweets and 233,977 likes, Thor with 7,675 tweets and 356,954 tweets and Captain America: The First Avenger with 4,909 tweets and 673,322 likes. The level of social media buzz here for a net new superhero entry is pretty staggering and I would say it looks like a sure shot to eclipse the opening marks of all my comparisons save for Avengers which would make $70 million plus be in play.

If it is Stars Wars for the next generation, what does that make the new Star Wars movie?
DoubleD - 7/30/2014, 3:57 PM
125 to 165 million, PLUS WORLD WIDE WILL HIT 1 BILLION PLUS. Watch out Avatar
WhiteSAMURAI22 - 7/30/2014, 3:59 PM
Didn't some say this about Pacific Rim? I mean I like Pacific Rim but that's a laugh.
AlexanderLykins - 7/30/2014, 4:00 PM
So much good.
Sipprelle - 7/30/2014, 4:01 PM
Wait, isn't Star Wars going to be the Star Wars for the new generation?
bropous - 7/30/2014, 4:01 PM

Saw it last night. It's Mass Effect meets Star Wars.
marvel72 - 7/30/2014, 4:02 PM
i "new hope" it is star wars for new generation because the prequel trilogy was a pretty shit star wars for that generation.
r0bl33 - 7/30/2014, 4:03 PM
@MidNightWind Lol wtf are you talking about?? Star Wars was based on like 5 different things (Flash Gordon, John Carter from Mars, The Hidden Fortress,etc.)It wasn't that original. So seat down, old man.
TheAmbassador - 7/30/2014, 4:04 PM
Just realized that about 5 theaters in San Diego start showings tomorrow night as early as 7pm. So clutch. Now I don't have to worry about pushing little children out of the way to get my hands on one of the last midnight screening tickets and can avoid sitting next to various douchers
Omarvls - 7/30/2014, 4:04 PM
@DoubleD

I'm still waiting for MarveMainEvent guy

His predictions are spot on

LOL

He predicted Winter Soldier would do 475 Million World Wide it ended up at 715 Million
He's probably got GotG at 350 Million World Wide
EzioKenway1225 - 7/30/2014, 4:04 PM
TURK-then what u do is that u click out of this article and go somewhere far,far away from here
WhiteSAMURAI22 - 7/30/2014, 4:04 PM
Just 'cause a movie is fun and creative and will make children force their parents to buy them action figures doesn't mean it's the next Star Wars.
marvel72 - 7/30/2014, 4:04 PM
oh yeah,only 12.5 hours to go.
GentlemanlyBatman - 7/30/2014, 4:05 PM
Just saying, four of the star wars films are disappointments (you know which ones). Are you telling me two thirds of this film will disappoint me?
BatManiac - 7/30/2014, 4:05 PM
GOTG looks great, but it's no Star Wars.
Sipprelle - 7/30/2014, 4:07 PM
@2gold
"If it is Stars Wars for the next generation, what does that make the new Star Wars movie?"

I think that means Star Wars is going to be, the Guardians of The Galaxy for a new generation? Wait...

r0bl33 - 7/30/2014, 4:07 PM
As a person who never liked Star Wars, I can honestly say this could easily be true.
EzioKenway1225 - 7/30/2014, 4:07 PM
this will not be the star wars of this generation..this is gonna be Guardians of The Galaxy it is going to be awesome...hopefully
Omarvls - 7/30/2014, 4:07 PM
@ProfessorRick

ProfessorRick - 7/30/2014, 4:11 PM
@Omarvls

Jollem - 7/30/2014, 4:13 PM
