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.
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.Read More
There aren't too many more franchises bigger than the WWE, the Marvel Universe, and James Bond, so it's understandable why the Superstar would want to conquer Star Wars next. Though it is a pretty big goal, it's not beyond the realm of possibility. Star Wars is a universe made up of all types of alien creatures and space heroes. Though with his stocky frame, he might just be too buff to play a Stormtrooper. And a little too short to play a Wookie.
Dave Bautista is 46-years-old, and he grew up as part of the Star Wars generation. Ask anyone his age, and appearing in a Star Wars movie is probably at the top of their bucket list. Lucky for him, he is sitting in a position where this might become a reality. He has the added benefit of being part of the Disney team with his role in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. And he will shoot Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 early next year for release in 2017.Read More
What are we watching here? Marvel and Disney have debuted a very strange TV spot for their new superhero adventure Ant-Man. It features stars Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas scatting about ants.

Ask almost anyone, and they will tell you their favorite scene in Guardians of the Galaxy was at the end, when Baby Groot dances to 'I Want You Back' by the Jackson 5.

Speaking with Doug Loves Movies, director James Gunn finally provided an answer.
