Guardians member Rocket is a fast-talking, genetically-engineered raccoon, while his muscle Groot is a tree-like being only capable of speaking the phrase 'I am Groot'.
"Groot is one of the strangest characters that Marvel has ever put on film," Diesel says in the clip.
Cooper adds of his own character: "Rocket has some real anger issues!"
Marvel greenlit a sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy at Comic-Con International last week, and confirmed that an animated series is also in the works. »
Marvel’s latest mega-movie is big, noisy, and fun to watch. Although the comic-book source isn’t familiar to most moviegoers, the template of this elaborate space adventure certainly is: a band of misfits finds strength by joining forces to battle some ruthless interstellar bad guys. The motley group includes a genetically modified raccoon with a wiseguy attitude (voiced by Bradley Cooper), an anthropomorphic tree named Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), a feisty and athletic woman (Zoë Saldana) who may or may not be loyal to her evil father, a hulk of a man bent on revenge (wrestler Dave Bautista), and a cocky, shoot-from-the-hip Earth orphan who becomes their de facto leader....

The blockbuster of the year hits theaters on Friday, but before you head out to your local cinema, Wamg has your review of Guardians Of The Galaxy – twice – with a He Said, She Said look at the film.
By Jim Batts
It’s been nearly four months since Captain America and company took down the forces of Hydra (and dismantled Shield along the way), and so, after the new cinematic adventures of the X-Men and Spider-Man from Fox and Sony, film fans are eager for another trip to the Marvel Studios “movie universe”. With this new feature, that arena gets a major expansion. That’s because they’re getting away from their comfort zone. Actually light years away. We’re not trodding the same ground as Cap and Tony Stark (although much of the Thor flicks bounced between Earth and far-off Asgard). We’re probably nearby that “galaxy far, »

While promoting Guardians of the Galaxy earlier this month, I had the chance to with Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige about this cosmic space adventure, which hits theaters August 1. Naturally, due to the immense nature of the ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe, the talk shifted to future projects such as Doctor Strange, whether or not each Phase will end with an Avengers sequel, and the studio's approach to secrecy.
Take a look at what the producer and the brains behind Marvel's Cinematic Universe had to say in our interview below, and you can clickHere to check out what he had to say about Guardians of the Galaxy.
I want to start by talking about your approach to secrecy, or, perhaps, lack thereof. There have been a lot of filmmakers who have been criticized over the last couple of years, for essentially lying to fans about certain secrets. For instance, »
I've been excited about Guardians of the Galaxy ever since Chris Pratt was cast as the strapping lead, a space outlaw by the name of Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord. I'm happy to report that the movie is just as good as I hoped it would be. Pratt's Star-Lord is just as hot as I anticipated, Zoe Saldana kicks just the right amount of ass as alien warrior Gamora, and even Bradley Cooper is hilarious as the foul-mouthed Rocket Raccoon. Since these guys are the new kids on the block of the Marvel film universe, you might be a bit hesitant to check out Guardians of the Galaxy. I want to assure you that they're every bit as great as The Avengers, and this is why. The Guardians also have a sexy, quick-witted ringleader. While you might argue that there is no real leader of The Avengers, if there was one, »
Guardians Of The Galaxy hit Irish and UK cinemas today and our American readers have only hours to go before they can enjoy a bunch of a-holes attempt to save the galaxy. One of these a-holes is Zoe Saldana, who plays a kick-ass alien assassin called Gamora. We’ve got a pretty indepth Q&A session below! Read on! Q: Were you a fan of the Marvel franchise prior to signing on to Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy”? Were you familiar with the comics? A: No, I was not familiar with them. I didn’t grow up with an affinity for reading comic books. I grew up in an all girls environment. That said though, I’ve always had an affinity for unimaginable stories; simple stories that are told in unimaginable places. That obviously enters the category of science fiction and that’s where Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” comes in. »

Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the most overloaded movies I have ever seen. There are too many characters, too many strange alien locations, too many colors, too many jokes, too many villains. Luckily, director James Gunn does too much really well, and the film is chockfull of everything without being bloated. It is also the most fun I have had in a movie theater since I don’t even know when.
The movie opens with a young single mother dying of cancer. Her son, Peter, runs away from the hospital and is immediately abducted by a spaceship. The next time we see Peter he is on an abandoned alien planet dancing to Redbone’s “Come and Get Your Love” and stealing a powerful artifact. He isn’t sure what it is, but he knows a lot of people want it and he’s quick to pick up on its importance, »

Rocket Fuelled; Gunn Pleasures Summer PG-Spot
It’s the end of the world as we know it. Or so the popcorn films of the summer thus far would have us believe. From the knock ‘em, sock ‘em eyesore that was Transformers: Age of Extinction to the poetic Snowpiercer, this summer’s movies have recurrently reinforced that we are living in a dog-eat-dog, every-man-for-himself society and thankfully this is not the case in Guardians of the Galaxy, the multiplexes’ savior from the otherwise humorless and joyless fare on offer. Writer/director James Gunn (Slither, Super) has not only infused some much needed fun back into the subgenre, but he reminds auds to embrace each other with open arms. Though at times tonally inconsistent, this is the perfect lighthearted antidote to its summer release superhero predecessors.
Initially established in 1969, Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ comic books have seen numerous changes over the years, »

Leading up to Guardians of the Galaxy, there’s been a persistent question among pundits, analysts, and even Marvel fans about whether or not the studio’s new film is “too weird”. Somehow, we’ve come to expect a guy who can invent anything, an alien Norseman with a magic hammer, and a guy who was put into suspended animation instead of dying of hypothermia are all credible protagonists worthy of their own movies. But once you go into outer space and feature a talking raccoon, all bets are off. Writer-director James Gunn has no problem convincing us of his space oddities as he taps into universally beloved qualities like humor, warmth, and a sense of adventure. Although he’s still a little trapped by some familiar plot points and a few underdeveloped main characters, these are minor qualms in a movie that’s a total blast. 25 years after aliens »

By now we’ve seen the incredible photos of Zoe Saldana‘s nude magazine spread for Women’s Health UK, taken right before her pregnancy was announced. Zoe looks fabulous in the photos, but after keeping her pregnancy under wraps, we’re finally seeing her as the adorably pregnant woman she is. We can’t help but wish she’d rock her baby bump in the same confident fashion as she did in this spread. Maybe for baby No. 2? One thing is for sure: She wouldn’t be the first to do so.

After months of buzz, "Guardians of the Galaxy" is finally making its theatrical debut this weekend, and box office prognosticators are predicting a big haul for the Marvel flick.
The Hollywood Reporter writes that "Guardians" is currently on pace to score a $65 million opening weekend total, though some industry analysts say that number could reach as high as $70 million. That would make it the highest-grossing August debut of all time, surpassing reigning champ "The Bourne Ultimatum," which bowed to $69.2 million back in 2007. Number two on the August debuts list is "Rush Hour 2," clocking in at $67.4 million in 2001.
The superhero flick is certainly gunning for the top spot, opening in 4,080 theaters -- the widest August release ever. It's also set to open in a number of international markets this weekend, positioning itself for a big take worldwide over the next few days.
Director James Gunn told The Hollywood Reporter in a recent interview that "Guardians, »
