Someone Used 'Destiny' to Recreate 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Scene

September 15, 2014

Guardians of the Galaxy

This weekend, Marvel's out of this world adventure Guardians of the Galaxy became an even bigger success as it became the first film this year to cross the $300 million mark in both the domestic and foreign box office charts. That's not an easy feat, and not even Captain America: The Winter Soldier or The LEGO Movie reached that milestone. And as a sort of celebration, we thought it would be cool to highlight an awesome fanmade video paying tribute to the Marvel film. For those who don't know, the video game Destiny was released this week (from the creators of Halo) and it's a pretty big deal. And someone already took the time to recreate one of Chris Pratt's opening scenes as Star-Lord within the video game. Watch!

Here's a Guardians of the Galaxy scene as recreated in the video game Destiny (via SlashFilm):

This is more fun than I thought it was going to be, showing that there's a lot of freedom within the next generation video game to just do silly things like dance. If you don't know anything about the game, we just featured a cool live-action commercial directed by Oblivion and Tron Legacy helmer Joseph Kosinski that shows off the cool sci-fi action you'll encounter. The game is all the rage right now, so if you haven't seen some of your video game savvy friends over the past week, that's why.

Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). Brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to join his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand. Marvel released the film on August 1st. Go see it right now!

    "This is more fun than I thought it was going to be, showing that there's a lot of freedom within the next generation video game" Yeah you clearly haven't played Destiny, just cut out the word "freedom" and put a megacrap ton of invisible walls and a space so small they lead you to believe it was this huge open world title but instead it's some generic rinse and repeat shooter with the most repetive waves of enemies I have seen in video games so far. Stuff like this article and video goes to show his over hyped this crap is. I regret buying it full price, lost the receipt on top of that and probably just going to go back in and throw the game in their faces cause I don't care about a refund.

      Never believe they hype.

      Everytime you comment on an article, it's ALWAYS negative.

        Uh no, am pretty sure I made a positive comment about the new Wonder Woman costume. Stop being such a drama queen.

          Just saying dude, a lot of the articles I read, you're always against the topic or against everyone who likes it, especially when they're in the majority.

      I agree, though not as powerfully haha. Pretty much all of the missions are the same. 1. Have ghost hack door. 2. Defend said door from waves of enemies. 3. Kill boss. Rinse and Repeat. The only mission that was somewhat refreshing was Sword of Crota, easily my favorite mission. Parts of the game are fun but it did not live up to the hype IMO.

    I love the way Guardians of the Galaxy has penetrated the public consciousness.
      Galactic movies are so hot right now. Shame that DC bumbled the Green Lantern Corps.

        Yeah, and WB wanted Zack Snyder for that. He would have, bare minimum, delivered something cool and had a field day with the visuals....but he did Sucker Punch instead...and it was a net loss for everyone involved. Oh, what could have been. But yeah, it will be interesting to see if movies like Interstellar or Jupiter Ascending(if it happens to be any good) will be able to piggy-back on the success of Guardians. Seems like the imminent return of Star Wars might be making space "cool again"
    LOL. Fun. This must have taken a long time to create.
