Read my interview with Michael Rooker / Yondu from Guardians of the Galaxy!

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.

Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which first appeared in comic books in Marvel Super-Heroes, Issue #18 (Jan. 1969), stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, featuring Vin Diesel as Groot, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Nova Prime and Benicio Del Toro as The Collector.

yossarian - 7/30/2014, 12:48 PM
Did Whyso get banned?
Kyos - 7/30/2014, 12:50 PM
Why not "Ich bin Groot" as well? :'( (not that I'd watch the dubbed version anyway, but still...)
Jollem - 7/30/2014, 12:56 PM
@Kyos - i'm not quite sure if this may be the reason, but maybe analyst-type people thought the movie wouldn't do so well over there? maybe actiony/violent kinda movies don't really make a profit so much with them?

"Restricting access to violent films and video games is a hot-button topic in Germany, which has strict restrictions on the media depiction of violence on platforms - such as primetime television - where it can be easily seen by children."
Guerillas - 7/30/2014, 1:10 PM
I love how passionate he seems to be for this role!
Jollem - 7/30/2014, 1:16 PM
