Check out three brand spanking new images from James Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” the very elusive movie that I think everyone expected to see a trailer for during the Super Bowl, but alas, it wasn’t meant to be. No worries, though, because the trailer is having its premiere tomorrow night on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, with star Chris Pratt himself showing up to do the introductions. It’ll then roll out into theaters this Friday, but I’m guessing we’ll see it online before that. Hopefully, anyway.
USAToday has more on the movie:
The movie teams five disparate personalities: Peter Quill (Pratt), aka Star-Lord, was taken from Earth as a 9-year-old, possesses a mysterious orb artifact and pilots the Milano, a muscle car of a spaceship. Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is connected to Thanos, arguably the cosmos’ biggest baddie. Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) is a muscular dude you don’t want to upset. And then there are the aliens Rocket Raccoon and Groot (computer-generated characters voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, respectively), who are best pals and potentially the biggest things to happen to pop culture since Chewbacca.
Their stories converge in the space prison Kyln. After the characters break out, they venture to Knowhere (the severed head of a celestial being that serves as a hangout for aliens) and visit the weird menagerie of the Collector (Benicio Del Toro). They also have to avoid two villains, Ronan (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), who are in hot pursuit of Quill’s orb, which has the power to destroy the galaxy.
Interesting. I thought Quill was an American pilot who ends up in outer space, but no, apparently he grows up in outer space. Hunh.
Anyways, the film co-stars Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, and features the voices of Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper, of all people. It opens this August 1st.
