James Gunn And Chris Pratt Talk GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY; New Plot Details Revealed

"If The Avengers are The Beatles, these guys are The Rolling Stones," director James Gunn says of the Guardians of the Galaxy, while Chris "Star-Lord" Pratt shares his thoughts on the tone of the movie. We also have some details on how exactly the team comes together...


"Maybe it's a risk, I dunno," Chris Pratt tells Empire in their latest issue when asked for his thoughts on where Guardians of the Galaxy fits into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "I think every movie Marvel's made has been a risk and they're risks that pay off really big. So I hope for the movie's sake, and my sake, that this one pays off. The story's really good and Marvel really knows what they're doing." As for the tone of the movie - which brings together a very unique set of characters - Pratt added: "It's not as broad as Galaxy Quest but it's not a straightforward space fantasy like Star Wars. I think it's the sort of the best of both of those films put together...and more!" The brief report then goes on to reveal that the team comes together when Peter Quill is thrown in jail and they then band together to escape and 'go after a treasure that they all want for different reasons.' According to director James Gunn, "Our characters are basically all villains to begin with. They don't believe they're individually good and they don't believe each other is good, and through the course of the movie they discover they're heroes. If The Avengers are The Beatles, these guys are The Rolling Stones."
