Guardians Of The Galaxy is the second of two Marvel films to be released later this years and falls under their “Phase Two” banner which leads into The Avengers: Age Of Ultron.
Very little of the film has been seen so far except for an early trailer shown exclusively at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con and one of the “stings” at the end of Thor: The Dark World.
The first trailer is rumoured to hit the internet on February 18th, but today this alleged test footage of Rocket (gun carrying raccoon to be voiced by Bradley Cooper) and Groot (A living tree type creature voiced by Vin Diesel) has surfaced online. It’s very brief but I’m excited for this one and I’ve never read the source material!
Guardians Of The Galaxy opens in the US and UK on 1st August.
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 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. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
