Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Teases Yondu + Some New Posters
For those who seemingly can't wait another month to see Guardians of the Galaxy in its entirety, last week we learned about a 17-minute preview of the Marvel film where an exclusive IMAX poster will be handed out to attendees. In the meantime, the hype continues by way of director James Gunn showing off some cool new pieces of promotion for the film. First up, he teased former "The Walking Dead" star Michael Rooker as Yondu, a small alien role in the film, though it looks like we'll have to wait for the film to see the full reveal. Second, Gunn also showed off a few posters where Rocket Raccoon and Groot each get their own poster as opposed to being doubled up on a single one, and Gamora gets a new one too. Look!
Here's the image of Michael Rooker as Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy (via James Gunn):
And here's separate character posters for Rocket Raccoon and Groot (and a bonus of Gamora):
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 rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand. The Marvel Studios film arrives in theaters August 1st, 2014.

"Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid..." Saw the trailer for this recently. Having a familiar earth animal, that talks and is fully CGI, immediately reminded me of every talking CGI animal movie ever. Except this one is set in space.

Can you tell me what CGI animal movie you have seen where the animals swear, smoke & shoot full automatic weapons. I would like to see that.

Was hoping Marvel would do some awesome designs for this, considering the possibilities with space as a theme, but these are a little dull...
