In the U.S., Guardians of the Galaxy was universally well-liked. It got a 91% on the Tomatometer and an A rating from Cinemascore, not to mention over $300 million in domestic box office sales. But that hasn’t been the case in China, where it opened to mixed responses from critics and audiences alike last weekend.
It’s not that the Chinese are immune to Groot’s charms. (Duh, who could be?) Rather, it’s because poorly translated subtitles are ruining the jokes. Hit the jump for more on the bad Guardians of the Galaxy Chinese subtitles.

Guardians of the Galaxy has been in theaters for months now — long enough to have come and gone from most markets. But it is still going strong as a force. Just look at the sales of the soundtrack, which is now hitting vinyl. Avengers: Age of Ultron probably doesn’t need a push from Guardians, but Marvel is going to use interest in the space opera to pitch the Avengers sequel regardless. There will be an Age of Ultron preview on the Guardians of the Galaxy Blu-ray and DVD, which hit in December. In addition to info on that detail, we’ve also got a Guardians VFX breakdown and some great effects images. Read More »

The fact that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy was such a big box office hit was a huge surprise on its own. It was only eclipsed by the success of its soundtrack. The Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack hit #1 on the Billboard charts and is certified Gold, with sales over 500,000. Pretty impressive for an album consisting only of previously released songs. In fact, it’s the first such album to ever hit #1.
Now, the Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack gets taken up a notch. Mondo is releasing it on vinyl with art by the awesome Tyler Stout. The Guardians of the Galaxy vinyl is currently available for pre-order and comes with a randomly inserted handbill.
Below, see the front and back cover art as well as all the handbills. Read More »
