UPDATE: 5 Guardians of the Galaxy character featurettes and the new poster!

UPDATE: Check out all five character featurettes for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY along with the official poster!

Now that we have seen the trailer for GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, the biggest lingering question is what will Rocket Raccoon and Groot sound like? We have one answer via some new featurettes showcasing Rocket and his houseplant/bodyguard featuring Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel discussing their voice duties in the film.

While we don't see any shots of Groot speaking, we do get a good indication of how Diesel is approaching the role and the uniqueness of the character. But, even in the short video, we hear Cooper voicing a line as Rocket and it immediately put me at ease. He sounds confident, douchey, and just like Bradley Cooper.

The trailer caught me completely off guard because it is so different from any other Marvel film, which is exactly what was needed. Chris Pratt looks hilarious and the ragtag team seems poised to become every kid's favorite set of toys.

Check out the Groot and Rocket featurettes, plus one for Drax. We will add the rest as they become available.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY hits theaters on August 1, 2014.

Plus we're getting Nebula, Ronin the Accuser, the Collector, Yondu, the Nova Corps and, presumably, more Thanos.

My brother says this feels to him like "Hellboy in Space", which sounds nothing short of awesome. Also, given Zoe Saldana and Bradley Cooper's romantic past, will Rocket Raccoon and Gamora get it on?

Cant

Wait! but you can only shake your head at the fact that we have freakin Rocket Racoon in a movie before we have a Wonder Woman or any other DC character that isnt Superman or Batman. smh

I'm a bit disappointed with the lack of cockney accent with RR but I kinda expected that after they castes cooper... Regardless it seems like his voice really does work in the end. Couldn't be more stoked for this movie. TheGreatPrez got it spot on... awesome marketing

So Excited About This Movie!

Guardians Of The Galaxy is quickly becoming my most anticipated movie of 2014. I know nothing at all about these characters or this world, but after watching the fantastic trailer and seeing this great poster I'm totally looking forward to this movie. It looks so much fun.

Hell yes.

This marketing campaign is doing everything right. Kickass trailer that remains kickass despite not telling the whole story and giving away all the money shots? Check. Sweet promotional videos that make me want more while showing the actors loving their respective roles? Yes, indeed.

And THEN they give me the GREATEST poster that's been made for a movie in recent memory? Is it August yet?

Well I just went from six to midnight...

I've watched the trailer for this a good 6 times now in the last 2 days and while these videos weren't really anything special, everything I'm seeing on this flick gets me excited. This looks like it's going to be a lot of fun.

That's hilarious!

The bottom of the poster actually says, "You're welcome." I'm pretty sure that sums up the tone Marvel's going for with Guardians of the Galaxy. This looks like a fun (and extremely weird) time at the theaters.

Looks like they knew exactly what they were doing when they cast all of these actors. This is feeling crazy good.
I think a more distinct, eclectic voice might have been interesting for Raccoon, but he doesn't sound bad at all.

At ConMan...that wasn't me. Cooper is one of my favorite actor and when I heard the news I was thrilled as hell.

Had to block half the screen

I covered half the screen to really feel Rocket there. Liking what I'm hearing but I need more like in a really douchey situation. But I think it's more heartening to hear Bautista say Drax is his cos as of now, I think he OWNS the role. Think he's gonna surprise us all. And Paul, isn't it August 2014??
