It embraces the eclectic. Think of Guardians as the awkward, geeky cousin of The Avengers. A talking raccoon, a tree-like humanoid, a green-skinned assassin, a revenge-driven Destroyer, and a thief who insists on being called "Star-Lord" make up this band of misfits who have "part of a plan" to save the galaxy.

And because it embraces the eclectic, theres something for everyone. Some movies you have to watch with your girls, some with your boy, some with your family. Guardians promises a good time for all.

It stars a bunch of familiar faces: Chris Pratt from The Lego Movie and Parks and Recreation, Zoe Saldana from Star Trek and Avatar, Vin Diesel from the Fast and the Furious series, Bradley Cooper from Silver Linings Playbook and The Hangover, Lee Pace from The Hobbit series and Pushing Daisies, Michael Rooker from The Walking Dead (Merle!), pro wrestler Dave Bautista, and finally, homegirl Karen Gillan from Doctor Who (who shaved her head for the movie!).

Director James Gunn embraced the relative anonymity of the comic book: "There aren't as many rabid fans of Guardians as there are of, say, The Avengers, or as many Guardians comic books, so I have been able to recreate it more for the screen without worrying that the audience will have a different expectation of the characters."
