SPOTLIGHT AND NEW CHARACTER POSTERS FOR 'GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY' WITH CHRIS PRATT, LEE PACE, ZOE SALDANA, BRADLEY COOPER, VIN DIESEL, GLENN CLOSE

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
MARVEL'S SUPER TEAM
New character posters have been released for one of this summer's most anticipated science fiction movies GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. Scheduled for cinematic release in August 2014, the movie will be set in space following an American pilot and a group of futuristic ex-cons who go on the run with a highly coveted object. Their common goal will turn them from the unlikely band of cons into superheroes and guardians of the galaxy.

  STAR LORD
THE LEADER OF THE GUARDIANS 
 Peter Quill aka Star-Lord is played by Chris Pratt. The leader of the Guardians who left Earth in the mid-1980's. He had a hard time as a kid, And now he goes around space, making out with hot alien girls and only through teaming up with the rest of the outcasts, he finds a higher purpose for himself! After stealing a mysterious orb in the far reaches of outer space, Peter Quill, a half human half alien is now the main target of a manhunt lead by the villain known as Ronan the Accuser. To help fight Ronan and his team and save the galaxy from his power, Quill creates a team known as the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY to save the world.

GAMORA
DEADLIEST WOMAN IN GALAXY
Gamora is played by Zoe Saldana, she is the adopted daughter of Thanos (she's an orphan from an alien world who was trained by Thanos to be his personal assassin and she now seeks redemption from her past crimes.) and an associate of Ronan (two of the film's villains) who tries to find a new path for herself. But she has such a reputation as the deadliest woman in the galaxy that people aren't greeting her with open arms.

  DRAX THE DESTROYER
VENGE- FUL WARRIOR
Drax the Destroyer is played by wrestling champion and actor Dave Bautista. He is a warrior in search of vengeance against Ronan and his only goal is to find him and kill him because he destroyed his family. Bautista's makeup took approximately four hours to be applied, but they were able to remove it in 90 minutes.


ROCKET RACCOON
DON'T MESS WITH THE COON!

Rocket Raccoon, one of the most unique animal characters in comic book world, will get his voice from Bradley Cooper!  A genetically engineered fast talking weapon loving raccoon who is an expert marksman and master tactician. He's an experiment from one part of the galaxy! The director of the film worked with real raccoons to get the feel for the character.

GROOT
SWEET AND DEADLY
Groot will be voiced by Vin Diesel. Groot is a species that happens to look like trees look, and is quite communicative if you can understand the different inflections in the way he says, 'I am Groot'. The tree-like humanoid is actually Rocket's accomplice. He is described as an innocent fella who is a hundred percent deadly, a hundred percent sweet.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
THE INTERGALACTIC CAST 
Other characters include Ronan the Accuser played by Lee Pace, who originally auditioned for Star-Lord.  He is Thanos' admiral who hunts down the Guardians. He has a help in Nebula, played by Karen  Gillan, who has a complex relationship with Gamora especially; in Korath played by Djimon Hounsou, and The Collector played by Benicio del Toro. Michael Rooker from THE WALKING DEAD  plays Yondu a blue mystic hunter, member of the Guardians team. Glenn Close and John C. Reilly play leaders of Nova Corps, intergalactic military/police force. Other cast members include   Tyler Bates, the composer of the music in 300 epic, who will be scoring music for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY too! James Gunn is directing the movie.

GALACTIC TIDBITS

    2. she does look like a drag a bit..... guess it ain't easy finding a good make up artist when you're travelling the universe.... unless you're Ming the Padishah.... he had such fantabulous eye shadows....

  5. they already made cameos in the Avengers cartoon and Ultimate Spiderman cartoon. They look kinda stupid at first but it could be a cool movie.

  11. I am so excited about this movie. Thank you for the inside look Dez. Groot and Gillan interest me especially. But my fave is Rocket. Come on, he's a raccoon!

  12. I get the feeling you iz not fond of the cussing Rocket Raccoon dahlink :)

    I think this should do well at the box office this summer. Not really my cuppa but it does look like there is some humour hidden amongst the violence.

    1. it might do well and it might not, you never know, the August usually isn't the biggest of months in cinema. This Fourth of July was also bad in cinemas

  13. The posters do look neat, though I don't think I am going to be catching this one. Like you, superhero flicks just aren't my thing. Until Wonder Woman comes out, I'll just pass them all by :)

    1. yep, I watched a few, but never fell in love with them.... The only one I vaguely enjoyed was Green Lantern but that was because it wasn't a grim one and the greeness in it was gorgeous

  14. I'll catch this if it's for free at home, but not
    to go pay all that money for, at the movie house.
