guardians of the galaxy

One of the prevailing thoughts amongst movie nerddom this year is that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, with its wild plot and characters, great-looking action, and ironic sense of humor, is going to be a far more satisfying sci-fi action film set in space than the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, which is bogged down with the bad memories of terrible prequels and the fact that it’s directed by J.J. Abrams.

As if almost in response to this, just as the Star Wars camp released two disappointing shots from the first day of production, Guardians of the Galaxy gets an awesome (and awesomely ridiculous) new poster.  It’s all action—check it out:
