From Marvel, the studio that launched the epic franchises of “Iron Man,” “Thor,” “Captain America” and “Marvel’s The Avengers,” comes an unlikely new team—the “Guardians of the Galaxy.” The Marvel Cinematic Universe expands into the cosmos when brash space adventurer Peter Quill steals a coveted orb and becomes the object of a relentless bounty hunt. To evade his enemies, Quill forges an uneasy truce with Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly assassin Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb, he must rally his ragtag band of misfits for a desperate battle that will decide the fate of the galaxy. Featuring amazing new characters and exclusive bonus features, this must-own blockbuster will have you hooked on a feeling… of pure adrenaline!
Shooting began in June 2013 in the UK over a long hot summer through autumn. The dedicated cast an crew worked together tirelessly together to embrace and realize director James Gunn’s vision. Product designer Charles Wood was given the task of designing and creating the weird and wonderful environments in which the action takes place. It was important for Gunn to have physical sets to shoot on, which was a rare treat for the cast and crew.
Getting the tone right was of paramount importance to the filmmakers who wanted a balanced mix of humor, emotion and action. This desire informed their search for the right director for the material and let them to James Gunn. They wanted to fine a director with something to say who has already said something on a smaller scale. Gunn had already made some interesting films with “Slither!” and “Super” and has written a few interesting screenplays. The result was a mix of characters who were rougher round the edges who were more real and a lot edgier.
