Guardians Of The Galaxy is a big movie and as it’s based on a property few people outside comic fans know, it’s probably gonna need a lot of promotion. That’s started to kick into gear with the release of three new images from the Marvel movie, via USA Today, ahead a trailer that’s promised late Tuesday night US time.
It certainly looks pretty cool, although rather different to what we’ve seen from Marvel so (and certainly with a lot more CG characters). It also gives us a decent view of Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), Peter Quill a.k.a. Star Lord (Chris Pratt), Groot (Vin Diesel) and Drax The Destroyer (Dave Bautista).
The USA Today article tells us a bit about the movie, saying ‘[The Guardians’] 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.’
The movie’s due out in August.
