The trailer is due this week, but until then, here are some new pics from the movie.

“There’s a whole lot to this movie — it’s not a stage play,” Pratt says. “You couldn’t make Guardians of the Galaxy the play and put it on Broadway. It really wouldn’t work.”
Yet even with all that sci-fi mayhem, Gunn adds, the movie is about “these characters, their emotions and their relationships.”
The director is aiming for a mix of drama, romance and humor. Heroic Quill, with his ’80s references and stunted social graces, provides some of the comic relief.
“Being stuck in space with no accountability makes for a strange combination of youthful vibrancy and cluelessness in a childlike man,” says Pratt, whose character has a Han Solo-esque rogue quality in the beginning.
“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.”
If anything, Guardians of the Galaxy is a fresh diversion for fans of superhero movies, Pratt says. “They 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.”
