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 Peter 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.

Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael and Benicio del Toro as The Collector. Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, the film opens August 1, 2014.

Very cool covers! Nothing to complain about with the cast appearance.
I know they call GROOT..the muscle,he is very strong but I wonder if he will increase in size/strength in the movie?

Plus,Drax is no slouch in the muscle/power the comics version he's crazy strong. Will he be less strong in the films?..if not,GOTG have some powerhouse muscle on the team.

Yeah, looking forward to this one. We have been very, very light on quality Sci-fi for a long time.

Karen's body though!

I would say the wall decal gave us the best look at him...

I just hope he isn't wasted.

Pace was phenomenal in the Hobbit, i guess he will kick this off pretty convincing as well.
RorMachine - 6/23/2014, 4:40 AM
Yeah but that was concept art, this is the actual actor.
SuperCat - 6/23/2014, 4:41 AM
Whoa, those covers look amazing :)

Doopie - 6/23/2014, 4:42 AM
i didn't think Pace would be imposing or intimidating to begin with - never realised how tall he is - but I'm starting to become convinced
MrReese - 6/23/2014, 4:43 AM
