Guardians of the Galaxy is already a guaranteed hit after its massive $94 million opening weekend, but if you're pondering another trip to the multiplexes this weekend, you may want to consider seeing this Marvel Phase Two adventure in IMAX. Stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and director James Gunn explain why this movie was crafted specifically for IMAX theaters in a new featurette, which also includes plenty of footage, in case you were one of the few who didn't see it last weekend.
On top of all that, we also have a new TV spot which boasts that Guardians of the Galaxy "saved the summer," a declaration that may be quite accurate if this sci-fi adventure continues to take the top spot for the next few weeks.
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team-the Guardians of the Galaxy. 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.
