Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t really look like anything that’s come before it in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That’s a good thing for those of us eager to see Marvel branch out, but a potential WTF for those who take comfort in Marvel’s reliability and consistency.
So a new Guardians of the Galaxy featurette tries to encourage those in the latter camp to join the former. Producer Kevin Feige and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, and Bradley Cooper promise the film will “blow you away with how unique it is,” while still reassuring viewers that it’s part of the same old MCU. Watch it after the jump.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens this weekend, and then all eyes turn to the skies. That’s where James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy takes place: in deep, deep space. There, an Earth-born transplant named Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) will be arrested and meet four other crazy creatures to form a formidable team to fight Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace). Those allies are Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel). And if that plot sounds a little thin, that’s because the film doesn’t open until August 1 and Marvel has been pretty tight lipped about it. We’ll surely learn more soon, though, as it becomes the primary focus in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
A few weeks back, we saw the teaser poster for Guardians of the Galaxy. Now, the character elements from that poster have been uploaded as large, individual images. Each offers a great opportunity to check out the detailed designs of each of the main characters. Check out some Guardians of the Galaxy photos below. Read More »
We’ve seen Bradley Cooper recording a few lines as Rocket Raccon in Guardians of the Galaxy, and heard his voice. Now here’s Vin Diesel‘s turn, as he discusses his character, the tree-man-alien Groot, who acts as “Rocket’s personal houseplant/muscle.” You won’t hear his voice, but there is some new footage to see below.
Update: Dave Bautista and Drax, Zoe Saldana and Gamora, and Chris Pratt and Star-Lord are the next actor/character pairs to get short video spotlights, and you can see their reels, each of which has some good new footage, below.

Riddick had a long, hard road to the big screen. The Chronicles of Riddick‘s poor box office performance left the very idea of a sequel in doubt, leaving Riddick stuck in development hell for a long, long time. Then, even once production got underway, they were hit by troubles.
Still, Vin Diesel and David Twohy refused to give up, and last year they were finally able to release the next chapter of their interplanetary saga. The film performed decently in theaters, but is apparently doing great on DVD. So much so, Diesel says, that Universal is eager to develop a sequel. Hit the jump to watch his announcement, complete with dancing and lip-synching to Katy Perry and Beyoncé. (Really.)
