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!
