UPDATE: Release Date & Cover Art For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Blu-Ray/DVD Revealed

<span style="color:#FF0000">UPDATE:</span style="color:#FF0000"> Release Date & Cover Art For GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Blu-Ray/DVD Revealed

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy was the biggest domestic hit of the year and now you can bring it home by pre-ordering the film on Amazon. Along with its listing came a potential release date and two potential covers for the Blu-ray/DVD. Come check it out! Confirmed by James Gunn!

Marvel's runaway smash hit, Guardians of the Galaxy, grossed over $314M domestic and $633M worldwide making it the highest grossing domestic film of the year and the 7th highest grossing film worldwide. The film, which was perceived as a risk initially, also managed to win over both critics and fans putting another tick in the win column for Marvel

Even though Marvel has yet to make an official announcement, Amazon has made the film available for pre-order in three editions: a standard one-disc 2D Blu-raya two-disc 3D Blu-ray combo, and a one-disc DVD. The film is also expected to arrive on a Best Buy Exclusive Steelbook, similiar to Captain America: The Winter Soldier & Thor: The Dark World.

Along with the listing came a release date, December 9th, which should make it a hot item during the holiday season. Now, this may just be a placeholder date, but if Marvel's usual 5-6 month wait from the theatrical release to the Blu-ray release is anything to go by, this date fits the bill.

UPDATE: Director James Gunn has confirmed the date:

Stay tuned for news on any special features as the release date approaches. You can check out two potential covers for the film below and feel free to click on either to head over to Amazon and pre-order the film to add to your collection: 

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.

Guardians of the Galaxy features:
Director: James Gunn
Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord
Zoe Saldana as Gamora
Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer

A KingPatel article where he advertises a movie let's see if SimyJo or SimJo or whatever will start hating this article
Niklander - 9/25/2014, 9:29 AM
Goon news though
TheRationalNerd - 9/25/2014, 9:29 AM
My heart skipped a beat when I read the title. lol I wish it was for a November release but I guess I can hold off for the time being.
Omarvls - 9/25/2014, 9:31 AM
GotG should be at 660 Million World Wide by the time it reaches China/Italy
can those two nations bring in 140 Million to reach that magical number of 800 Million
Probably not but it's almost guaranteed to be the top CBM of the year beating out X-Men DOFP
MrYurMomm - 9/25/2014, 9:32 AM
PS4 is finally gonna be able to play 3D movies in a future update.

All I need left is my 3D TV and bam!

Thor, Captain America, Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor TDW, Capitan America TWS, Guardians of the Galaxy, Pacific Rim, Man of Steel, Amazing Spider Man, and Finding Nemo all in 3D on a 55" TV.

I think I will have a VERY merry Christmas this year.

TheRationalNerd - 9/25/2014, 9:32 AM
Loving that slipcover color, should add more color to my MCU collection. *sniffs collection* lol
CaptAmericaSux - 9/25/2014, 9:34 AM
If there is a one-shot, it will most likely be the Collector or the Xandar lieutenant guy.
TheRationalNerd - 9/25/2014, 9:34 AM

You live in the U.S.? If so you should be able to update. I already updated mines for the 3D update about 3-4 weeks ago. Enjoy that 3D tv bro! :D lol
rockerdude22 - 9/25/2014, 9:35 AM
I propose a Howard the Duck one-shot! Or maybe a Cosmo one lol
CapitanAmerika2 - 9/25/2014, 9:40 AM
YAY!!!!! I will definitely be asking for this movie for Christmas or buying it myself to complete my collection until the next movie comes out on DVD.
JoJo1982 - 9/25/2014, 9:40 AM
@ omarvl

I think it will be knocking 700 million by the time it hits China on Oct. 10th. Still has Italy and Switzerland to be released in oct. 22nd, so yeah!!! 800 million is strongly possible now
JoJo1982 - 9/25/2014, 9:45 AM
@ rebelvulcan

A Loki one shot maybe..... great way to plz Thor fans since we won't see a Thor movie in the next 3 or 4 years
captain74 - 9/25/2014, 9:46 AM
I already have the Blu Ray in 3D. Had it for 3 weeks. Boom. Princesses.
California - 9/25/2014, 9:50 AM
Of course it will be released for the Christmas shopping season. I want it.
rockerdude22 - 9/25/2014, 9:51 AM
@RebelVulcan I already mentioned it, but it would personally love a Howard the Duck One-Shot! He's a character I feel gets a lot of undeserved hate (mostly because of that infamous 80's movie), so I would love for him to get some recognition and show how good of a character he actually is!
Gusto - 9/25/2014, 9:52 AM
Ohhh...I know what I'm askin' Nomis Claus for!

ATrueHero1987 - 9/25/2014, 9:52 AM
I will get a copy on my Xbox, the 3D blu ray pack, and the steelbook pack from Best Buy.lol
MrYurMomm - 9/25/2014, 9:53 AM

You have a PS4? Add me bro, same username as here, lol. I have Killzone, Injustice, and I'm gonna be picking up my NFS Rivals, BF4, and Second Son this coming weekend.

I can't wait for November 17. My brothers birthday AND GTA V for 'next gen'.

Tis a glorious time to be alive. Intense games, and awesome CBM's all over the place. Couldn't be happier.
MrYurMomm - 9/25/2014, 9:57 AM
Holy shit. 633 Mil? Not long until these a-holes pass up the granddaddy of superheros.

I'm sure everyone knows how I feel about MOS, but damn, I do t know whether to be happy or sad. Happy that GOTG is so popular for a bunch of unknowns. Sad that MOS 'only made' that much thought out its run.

I'm so torn on how to feel about that. [frick] it. I'm just glad almost all these CBM's are making bank. Means more to come in the future!
Rulk - 9/25/2014, 9:58 AM
Damn... I want some sort of collector's set... like the Dinobot Transformers 3 set we read about...

Maybe make a lit-up Knowhere or Thanos on his throne...

Marvelfreek94 - 9/25/2014, 10:04 AM
Moviestop claimed it would hit shelves on December 2nd. I hope it is true.
Omarvls - 9/25/2014, 10:04 AM
IF GotG can reach 800 Million World Wide it will be the Biggest hit of the year it does not matter what Hunger Games/Hobbit due those movies are expected to reach close to a Billion
But....GotG reaching 800 Million

BlackBolt72 - 9/25/2014, 10:05 AM
Can't wait so tempted to see it again for the fourth time but don't want to spoil the digital download when it comes out on Xbox.
MexicanSexyman - 9/25/2014, 10:07 AM

GliderMan - 9/25/2014, 10:07 AM

FerFogs - 9/25/2014, 10:16 AM

DefcoN - 9/25/2014, 10:16 AM
So I guess the legal dispute between Amazon and Disney is finally over.
yossarian - 9/25/2014, 10:18 AM

MrYurMomm - 9/25/2014, 10:23 AM

FearTheLiving - 9/25/2014, 10:24 AM
One-Shot? I was disappointed Cap didn't have one.
ATrueHero1987 - 9/25/2014, 10:25 AM
