In addition to three new images from James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, we’ve got the details for how you can check out the first trailer for Marvel’s upcoming superhero film.  In addition to all that goodness, Gunn and star Chris Pratt recently shared some insights into the movie and teased how it will be different than any comic book film adaptation that’s come before it.  A tall order, but this cast and crew appear to be up to the task.

Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Michael Rooker, Djimon Hounsou, Peter Serafinowicz, and Benicio Del Toro also star.  Guardians of the Galaxy opens in 3D on August 1st.  Hit the jump to check out the new images and to see what Gunn and Pratt had to say.

guardians-of-the-galaxy-zoe-saldana-chris-prattFirst up, you should know that the new trailer for GotG makes its debut on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday night (11:35 ET/PT), with a special intro by Pratt.  You’ll be able to catch it here shortly after it premieres.  Here’s what Gunn had to say about Guardians of the Galaxy, comparing it to a favorite indie band that hits it big (via USA Today):

“All of a sudden, Arcade Fire becomes incredibly popular: ‘I don’t know if I like them that much anymore.’ I’ll happily deal with the cool people not thinking I’m cool anymore and making bigger movies! … He adds that the movie’s really about “these characters, their emotions and their relationships.”

For more insight on one of those characters – the lead role of Star-Lord/Peter Quill – here’s what Pratt shared:

“Being stuck in space with no accountability makes for a strange combination of youthful vibrancy and cluelessness in a childlike man. He does some things that most people wouldn’t get away with. But part of his arc is being willing to essentially sacrifice himself for the greater good of other people.”

As for the movie itself, Pratt says:

“There’s a whole lot to this movie — it’s not a stage play. You couldn’t make Guardians of the Galaxy the play and put it on Broadway. It really wouldn’t work. [Audiences] know what to expect at every turn. So that’s why it’s important now to do a comic-book movie that no one’s ever seen before.”

Check out the images below:

    With this and Jurassic World, Pratt is about to become an even bigger name than he already is. I own every GOTG issue from the first run to the current, so you can definitely say I’m really excited for this one.

        Hah, it doesn’t look like he needs much encouragement. The guy literally has thousands of posts already. I think we’ve reached the point where we all just smile in amusement at the poor little dude.

      • Leo Spaceman

        The dumbass has maybe been trolling here for two months and that’s frocking stretching it. He would have to comment 18 times a day just to reach his first thousand.

        He may be a tool but he does not literally have thousands of posts. He eventually will though because he is successfully trolling people here and he isn’t going to stop while people still acknowledge him.

      • PANTS

        Seriously, click on his username. He’s almost to 5000 comments on discus. Granted, some of those are on other sites, but he trolls here on roughly a quarter of the articles posted by collider, so it’s reasonable to assume a good portion of his 5000 is from this site alone.

      Let me save you the trouble. Feel free to copy/paste:

      “Marvel is really banking on guardians of the galaxy to be a hit. It must
      be a hit. GOTG will be the most expensive superhero film ever made with a price tag of 250 million dollars without marketing cost. A quick look to the marvel franchise tells you why it’s a big risk sure to backfire The first marvel made more 150 million domestically which adjusted for inflation it’s almost 190 million dollars. Iron man 2 made a little more than 200 million dollar and the third Iron Man was the peak of the franchise at more than 230 million dollar. After this turd, box office for the Marvel superheros shows that audience was tired of the avenger crap. One can argue that many circumstances made Avengers a disappointment. The movie leaked beforehand, it was badly written, it features characters from the bottom of the well of the avengers comic book universe and it was directed by someone who doesn’t know how to direct commercial flare.
      Fair enough, then comes Thor 2 while an improvement from thor wasn’t an hit with the public. Sure it made more than 140 million domestically, but it posted lackluster dvd sales. Outside of the theaters, the movie didnt have a life. Its DVDs are sitting on shelves collecting dust waiting to be rented or bought. Foreign box office receip was a little more than 200 million dollars which itself was a massive disappointment even if it was better than wolverine and the first xmen movie. Maybe it was the cast as none was a box office star. Whatever Then past year came the forgettable the Iron man 3 movie. In a summer full of gem, the movie came and went. It wasn’t a flop but it wasn’t a hit either. The movie had no audience outside of the neckbearded fanboys. For iron man 3 Marvel thankfully didnt spend much money on it compared to other avenger movies. While the movie wasn’t talked about in America, it was a big hit in select fireign markets.
      As you can see, since Iron man 3 (which should have been the franchise last stand), the box office has gradually dwindled. Gaurdians of the galaxy is not an hot franchise among the superhero landscape. The franchise hasn’t even hit 300 million dollars aboard!!! And the last 3 movies had little life outside of theaters. But somehow that didnt stop marvel to spend more than 250 million dollars in this lone movie. The movie will flop, because no way it makes more than 600 million dollars worldwide to break even.”

        Its like you’re channeling him :D

      • William Muniz

        How can Thor 2 post lackluster dvd sales when the movie comes out on DVD on Feb. 25? Iron Man 3 was not a hit in America?

      • Random Bystander

        Im pretty sure he just copied Mixed Race’s Xmen rant and changed the names and box office numbers

      • Lovecraftlives

        Iron Man 3 was huge and so was Thor 2.

        Thor the Dark World hasn’t even hit video yet, you dickhead! Get the hell out of here. Guardians all the way the baby!!!!!!!

    WHAT IS THIS??!!

  • Repus

    “Promoted Content” – does this mean that Collider was paid to specifically post these images by the PR company, rather than just let nature take its course?

    Is this why an “editor” would say something like “A tall order, but this cast and crew appear to be up to the task.” …?

    Cannae wait.

    Been dying for a trailer since I first heard about the full cast!

  • Person

    This movie somehow looks even more epic than before. That second new image is insanely awesome.

  • Django9000

    From the toy fair clips of the Peter Quill toy’s “action sounds” and the character bio here, it’s looking like this Star Lord has elements of the kid from “Flight of the Navigator” & the protagonist from “the Last Starfighter” ( two iconic ’80s space adventurer flicks ) . That’s not a bad thing. That just means – this movie’s gonna be off the wall HI-Larious ~ Can’t wait.

    • Django9000

      (Not that those films are funny, but the fact that he’s got a Walkman that blasts his favorite 80′s music means, he’s not just a grownup kid from the ’80s – he’s like an alternate “What If?” version of what happened if either of those characters just wound up Staying in Space & not coming back. Commence tongue-in-cheek antics galore ~ )

    The fact that James Gunn directed Super does not inspire confidence in this film. That was one of the worst films I have ever seen.

    • Bob

      Slither was fun though.

      And besides, this cast inspires more than enough confidence. Such a great cast.

      • http://nasirjones.com NaS

        True, but Super had a great cast as well and they were all let down by the direction/screenplay.

  • Doug_101

    I’ve read the first collected hardback of the new Marvel Now series, but that’s it. I liked what I read so I’m definitely going to check out more. One question for those who are more familiar with the property: Is the ship called “Milano” for the cookies? God, I hope so – that would be brilliant. Not sure if that’s in the comics, though. I read about a sentient ship that they used to have, but I heard that wasn’t making it into the movie.

  • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

    Unfortunately James Gunn has me worried as he’s only directed two films and neither of which were great. Super was one of the most depressing and underwhelming films I’ve seen in a long time. It could have been so much more fun but was just a total miss for me (an awesome cast totally wasted). Hopefully Marvel will help provide him some talent to shape the film.

    • The Flobbit

      With the Marvel formula, it just shows that the director doesn’t really matter, so long as they have charming actors, a decent villain, light humor, etc. I am sure Guardians will be a hit.

      • http://www.collider.com/ DNAsplitter

        True. The new Captain movie has the guys who directed Parks & Rec and You, Me and Dupree as their credentials and it looks awesome. I think Phase I had more control from their directors and that’s why Marvel hired Johnston and Branagh as their backgrounds were in the areas that the films were set in. I feel that Phase II is now set on autopolit w Joss Whedon controlling most of the creative choices.

      • The Flobbit

        Phase 1 was Marvel finding it’s feet, which is why we got both the awesome Iron Man, and the abysmal Hulk film. Phase 1 was extremely inconsistent – films were either brilliant or mediocre.

        Finally, round about Thor, Marvel hired Kenneth Branagh. Branagh showed Marvel how ballsy you can be and get away with it. From then on, Feige had Branagh, Johnston, and then Whedon (with Favreau in the background) perfect their formula. We owe it to these directors for their casting. Casting is Marvel’s strong suit.

        The casting these guys set in, combined with the formula of humor, action, light tone, extra genre, and chemistry means that in Phase 2, Marvel’s basically on cruise control. Whedon and Feige, as you said, are in the background, planning until 2021, it appears.

        I just can’t wait for DC to find something that works for them. The untapped potential of Sandman, Constantine, and all those dark Batman and Superman stories will be epic.
