Guardians of the Galaxy definitely looks to be this year’s weirdest mainstream superhero movie, which is really saying something when the others have involved time-traveling mutants and dueling 90-year-old supersoldiers. And we mean that as a sincere compliment.
The latest Guardians of the Galaxy TV spot includes new footage showing off even more of these “criminals, misfits, and thugs,” including Bradley Cooper‘s loud, angry Rocket Raccoon. Watch it after the jump.

August 1 is coming very, very quickly. Then, audiences will finally get to see the Marvel Cinematic Universe go fully cosmic in James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy. Thanks to trailers, commercials, posters and more, most of us have already seen pretty much all we need from the film, which stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper as the Guardians. For others, maybe there’s still a desire for a little more. Maybe just a few images that show the scope of the film and offer an up-close and personal look at the bad guy, Ronan the Accuser, played by Lee Pace.
That’s what you have below. Seven new Guardians of the Galaxy photos featuring the planet Knowhere, Ronan and even new shots of heroes Rocket and Groot. Read More »
Guardians of the Galaxy opens in just six weeks, so this is the point where Marvel really has to start the full-court press. The first two trailers, a couple of TV commercials, and those character videos have all started to introduce the strange team of characters. Now a new Guardians of the Galaxy international trailer gives some more detail to that crew: a thief, two thugs, a murderer, and a maniac, as Glenn Close says in this new footage.
(Chris Pratt‘s character ran down the same roster, with one slight difference, in the last trailer. I’ll let you figure out the alteration here.)
This trailer also contains some new Rocket footage, and a good bit of input from Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel). Read More »

We occasionally see IMAX film presentations in which the film’s aspect ratio changes from scene to scene. Typically this is due to a shift between footage shot on digital or 35mm film and native IMAX footage. So we’ve seen the ratio shift in films like Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and The Dark Knight Rises. Outside the IMAX space, we’ve also seen the aspect ratio shift used for purely artistic purposes, as in recent films The Grand Budapest Hotel and X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Now, Guardians of the Galaxy will fit somewhere in between those practices. Director James Gunn has revealed that IMAX 3D presentations of the film will feature shifting aspect ratios, “in a way that makes the experience even fuller and more encompassing.” Read his note below. Read More »
According to writer/director James Gunn, Thursday night’s NBA Finals game will include both 30- and 60-second commercials for his upcoming Marvel adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy. No need to wait for Lebron James and Tony Parker to suit up, though, as the first spot has already appeared online. It has a few awesome new shots including a few of Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser (he’s the hooded guy at the beginning) and Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) affirming the badassness of the Guardians. It’s super cool.
And if that’s not exciting enough, the Poster Posse – an international group of artists who do art based on the same upcoming movies – have released the first batch of art for Guardians of the Galaxy. There’s some truly beautiful and interesting stuff to be seen, including an already iconic mash-up of the 1977 one sheet for Star Wars by Matt Ferguson. Check out the Guardians of the Galaxy fan art and TV spot below. Read More »
