The cast of forthcoming Marvel movie 'Guardians of the Galaxy'; Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper; talk about the new film in a short featurette.

'They're the thieves, the bounty hunters and the neglected', Zoe explains of their characters. 'It's not a typical superhero movie.' Chris adds: 'Peter Quill is the only human in this crazy world. He doesn't have superhuman strength or the abillity to fly but he uses his cunning and his charm to get himself out of situations.' It appears to be the first Marvel film that focuses more on comedy than action, with Bradley explaining, 'There's a lot of humour in this one and a lot of heart. There's nothing like it, that's for sure.'

New 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Trailer: What We Noticed 4247368 News

Prepare to check out the new trailer for the upcoming summer blockbuster, Guardians of the Galaxy, which is due to open from the end of July. James Gunn's visualisation of Marvel's lesser-known comic book series recruits a stellar cast in an outer space setting with jaw-dropping special effects and rib-tickling one-liners.

Chris Pratt takes the lead alongside Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Josh Brolin, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close Benicio Del Toro and Dave Bautista in what looks to be one of the action highlights of summer 2014.

In a nutshell, Pratt's adventurer, Peter Quill, gets stranded in space and unites a team of unlikely ex-con aliens in order to mount a defence against the cosmic threat of Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe.

That rag-tag band of unlikely heroes includes assassin Gamora (Saldana), the bounty hunting, genetically-engineered Rocket Raccoon (Cooper), the tree-like humanoid Groot (Vin Diesel) and warrior Drax the Destroyer (Bautista).

"I was only a kid when I left Earth and I had no idea what the universe had in store for me," Pratt as Quill narrates in the all new trailer. Flash forward a few years and Quill is an adult who we see teaming up with the other Guardians in a quest to save the world from evil and certain doom.

The trailer reveals that Cooper's wise-cracking Raccoon is going to be a big hit, especially with younger viewers. Although Rocket may provide the movie's comic relief, it's also clear from the new scenes that the diminutive mammal will be involved in some of the movies most dramatic action scenes with fur flying as he flings himself about the screen.

The new pictures look crisp and colourful with some truly astounding special effects and CGI work. Whole characters are digitally conjured as the movie takes the viewer for an unforgettable, high stakes adventures in space.

Peter Quill runs into some trouble when he discovers an unusual looking orb that happens to be hunted by the merciless admiral Ronan and his army of miscreants. He is an Earthling; an unusual race within his neighbourhood in which he grew up after being removed for his home planet as a child. Naming himself the Star-Lord, he likes to think he's one heck of a superhero - but he's about to meet his match (or should we say 'matches'?). After being arrested by Ronan's people, he is greeted by four other alien outlaws. First there is the enormous Drax the Destroyer who is determined to use his supernatural strength to avenge his murdered family; then there's cyborg Gamora, the daughter of Thanos (an even bigger villain in this story); Rocket, a psychotic gun-toting raccoon; and half-man half-tree Groot. They may be distrustful of each other, but they've got to stick together if they want to save the universe from certain annihilation.

Since when did superhero films have to be serious? Marvel apply comedy to comics with 'Guardians Of The Galaxy', which is based on the original comics by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. The movie has been directed  by James Gunn ('Super', 'Slither', 'PG Porn') and co-written by Nicole Perlman and is due for UK release on July 31st 2014.

Peter Quill is a fearless Earthling pilot who rather proudly proclaims himself to be an outlaw, going by the nickname Star-Lord. As a child, he was taken from his home planet and forced to live around various alien races, but even he is in for a surprise when he is captured by merciless hunters led by the evil admiral Ronan after he tries to make off with an extraordinary orb. It is during his imprisonment that he meets four other intrepid outlaws. There’s Drax the Destroyer, a man of muscle hellbent on avenging the tragic murders of his family; Gamora, a green-skinned cyborg who is the rebellious daughter of Ronan’s boss Thanos; Rocket, a genetically modified raccoon with incredible firearm dexterity; and Groot, a half-man half-tree creature who knows little about the technological world. Despite their reluctance, the five must join together to save the universe from Thanos’ dastardly plans.

Marvel take an unusually comical turn on the superhero genre with their latest comic book film  ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’. Directed by James Gunn ('Super', 'Slither', 'PG Porn') and co-written by Nicole Perlman, the movie is based on the comics originally designed by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. It is set to hit theatres on August 1st 2014.

Guardians Of The Galaxy's Groot Appears Cast Favourite Following Q&A 4204750 News

Guardians of the Galaxy, the latest film based on Marvel’s comic books, is due to be released in July. With fans already speculating about the film’s plotline and special effects, the cast and crew were happy to chime in with a special Q&A session on Facebook on Monday (19th May). The session followed the release of the film’s second trailer, following the shorter teaser trailer we saw back in January.

Guardians of the Galaxy
Chris Pratt stars as Peter Quill in GoG.

Read more: Guardians Of The Galaxy: Meet The World's Most Dangerous Raccoon (And The Voice Behind Him).

Guardians of the Galaxy follows Peter Quill, an American pilot, as he journeys through space after coming into possession of a desirable orb with immense power. The villainous Ronan, true to superhero lore, longs to possess the orb attempts to hunt Quill down. An all-star cast ensures this film will not simply remain a sci-fi cult hit but is likely to reach vast audiences. Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation) stars as Quill whilst Lee Pace (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) plays Ronan.

They’re supported by a variety of well-known names and faces including: Zoe Saldana (Star Trek), Karen Gillan (Doctor Who), Dave Bautista (The Man with the Iron Fists), Bradley Cooper (The Hangover), Vin Diesel (Fast and Furious), Benicio del Toro (The Wolfman), Glenn Close (Damages) and John C. Reilly (Chicago). The Q&A session featured actors Pratt, Gillan and Diesel whilst writer and director James Gunn also featured.

Guardians of the Galaxy
Vin Diesel voices Groot, a tree like creature in GoG.

Vin Diesel provides the voice of Groot, a feisty Ent like creature, and he spoke candidly about how his character helped him overcome the loss of his close friend and Fast and Furious co-star, Paul Walker. As Yahoo reports, one fan asked Diesel what the most challenging aspect of getting into his character was. Diesel stated the role was a “very personal one” as it was such a short time after the loss of Walker. He wrote “It was the month after the accident happened with my brother Paul Walker and it was the first time I had worked since. Although it was challenging, just to get back to work was therapeutic, especially as Groot."

Groot seems to be a favourite amongst the cast who all commented on the tree-like creature at least once during the Q&A. One fan asked what the most beautiful scene in the film was to which Gunn replied “I don’t want to give it away, but it’s with Groot. Hooray for our visual effects team!” Whilst when asked who they’d rather take into a fight both Bautista and Gunn immediately opted for Groot.

Guardians of the Galaxy is released in cinemas in the UK on 21st July 2014 and in the US on 1st August.

Peter Quill is a tenacious pilot who was taken away from his home planet Earth as a child to grow up around alien races. Arrogantly nicknaming himself Star-Lord, he finds himself captured by the evil admiral Ronan's ruthless hunters during the attempted theft of a powerful orb. On his arrest, he meets four other criminal eccentrics: muscle man Drax the Destroyer, who is searching for vengeance after the brutal death of his family; the rebellious cyborg Gamora, whose father is Ronan's boss Thanos; a weapon toting, genetically modified racoon named Rocket with better gun skills than most humans; and, the latter's accomplice, tree man Groot. Soon, the group decide to band together in order to protect their galaxy after discovering what the orb is really about to be used for. 

'Guardians Of The Galaxy' is a comedy superhero movie adapted from the Marvel Comics series of the same name, originally designed by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Is Chris Pratt The Next Big Hollywood Star? 3749195 News

Chris Pratt, the 34-year-old actor who has bagged himself some pretty tasty roles in recent years, is bulking up for his role in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie. Pratt is the latest movie star to undergo a dramatic physical transformation and posted his progress in an Instragram photo this week.

<iframe src="//instagram.com/p/bdD2lCDHHx/embed/" width="612" height="710" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" allowtransparency="true"></iframe>

It's not the first time the Parks and Recreation actor has changed weight for a movie role - he sported a hugely toned physique for his role as a member of Seal Team Six in Kathyn Bigelow's Osama Bin Laden movie 'Zero Dark Thirty' last year.

Marvel's new superhero movie - based on the comic book team of the same name - follows an American pilot in space and a group of futuristic ex-cons who go on the run with a highly coveted object. Directed by James Gunn, the movie sees Pratt star opposite Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Glenn Close, Karen Gillan, Benicio del Toro and John C. Reilly.

In November, it was announced Joel Edgerton, Jack Huston, Jim Sturgess, Lee Pace and Eddie Redmayne signed deals to test for the role of Peter Quill/Star-Lord, though Pratt eventually snagged the role despite late interest from Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Other actors to undergo dramatic transformations for movie roles include Christian Bale for The Machinist and Matthew McConuaghey for The Dallas Buyers Club.
