Earlier today, seven new photos debuted from Guardians of the Galaxy, which included our first look at Kraglin, played by director James Gunn's brother Sean Gunn. Marvel has released 13 more photos which offer new looks at the villainous Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), along with Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana), who appear to be sharing another flirtatious moment similar to the earlier photos. We also see Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Groot (Vin Diesel), Rhomann Dey (John C. Reilly) and a Nova Corps Officer (Peter Serafinowicz). Take a look at the latest photos, then read on for the latest update from director James Gunn, and reactions to the sneak preview screenings as production officially wrapped on the movie this week.
Director James Gunn revealed earlier today on his Facebook page that he is officially finished working on Guardians of the Galaxy, except for finalizing the 3D. Take a look at his full statement, as he prepares to start his press tour in Singapore.
"Well, other than finalizing the 3D, I'm officially wrapped on Guardians of the Galaxy and on my way to the airport to fly to Singapore to begin the press wing of this journey. I saw some amazing VFX shots today to wraps things up. I couldn't be feeling more gratitude and love for all the people who have helped create this film. However the audiences take it, there's not a single dishonest or impure bone in Guardians' cinematic body - and that's a hell of a thing for a spectacle film of this size with so many people involved. Best experience of my life. Thank you all."

Guardians is gonna be great. I totally get the Raiders vibe of a propulsive action MacGuffin chase with lovely characters. #GotG— Da7e Gonzales (@Da7e) July 7, 2014
