We are just 3 weeks away from the premier of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and the promo wheels are spinning. James Gunn and some of the cast are out working the press circuits and it seems we have a new TV spot every few days. Check out the latest after the jump.
Some interesting new snippets of footage in there including a tussle between Drax and Ronan on what appears to be Knowhere. If that's the case, it won't be their last fight in the the film. Everything I've seen from the film (including the 17-minute preview) looks amazing and early tracking suggests the film will open anywhere between $60-80 million. Not bad for a film with a production budget of $170 million. While this film has been labeled a risk for Marvel Studios, it certainly looks more and more like it's one that will pay big dividends.
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 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 and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, Djimon Hounsou with John C. Reilly, Glenn Close as Commander Rael andBenicio del Toro as The Collector. Distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, the film opens August 1, 2014.
