Guardians of the Galaxy

(2014)

An action-packed, epic space adventure, 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 Quill 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.

Danny DeVito Almost Played This ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Character

Danny DeVito Almost Played This ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Character

The director was responding to a fan who asked that he replace Bradley Cooper with Danny DeVito. It isn't known what other actors actually read for the Rocket Raccoon role before James Gunn decided on Bradley Cooper, but the casting choice was later praised by fans after they finally got to hear what Rocket would sound like. Rocket, along with the rest of the Guardians, Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista) and Groot (Vin Diesel) will be back for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which is currently in pre-production in Atlanta.

If someone would have walked in to Guardians of the Galaxy not knowing any of the cast members involved, that person most likely would not have guessed that Bradley Cooper was the voice of Rocket. The actor eliminated all traces of his Philadelphia accent to portray the snarky raccoon, and his gravelly voice is unlike anything we've ever heard from the actor, before or since then. The casting worked out for the best, as Guardians of the Galaxy went on to become the surprise box office hit of 2014, taking in $333.1 million domestic and $774.1 million worldwide.

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Director James Gunn Thanks Fans

What meant more to me is that in our tenth week we were out-performing any comic book film in recent history - not because of the money, but because people were going back to see the film a second, third, fourth, fifth time, or more, because they loved it. What mattered to me is that after a lifetime of telling stories and half a lifetime making movies, I felt like you and I, filmmaker and audience, were at the same place at the same time. It mattered to me mostly because I told a story fully with my heart, and you took it into yours. I don't think I can ever explain how much that means to me. It makes every failure I've ever had well worth it.

I get a lot of messages from people saying, 'You made me believe in movies again.' Well, you guys made me believe that what I spent my life doing was worth doing. And you strengthened my belief that nothing's worth doing, if it's not done honestly, and it's not done with love. On this, the one year anniversary of the cinematic Guardians entering our solar system: thank you, thank you, thank you. We really are, truly, honestly Groot.
