After the release of the trailer for Marvel’s upcoming Guardians Of The Galaxy, now we get a poster along with a quartet of featurettes introducing us to the movie’s main characters – Vin Diesel’s Groot, Dave Bautista’s Drax, Zoe Saldana’s Gamora, and Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord.
It’s a smart idea as with few people outside comic fans known the Guardians, giving an early introduction to what to many may seem bizarre characters should help sort out any qualms. You can take a look at the character featurettes below.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘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 entire 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 Quill 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.
