UPDATED: Con footage! Here's your first look from the set of Guardians of the Galaxy

Aug. 12, 2013by: Niki Stephens

UPDATE: The footage that was shown at Comic Con is in so you might want to get in while it's hot and online. Good shit. There's also a low-res pic of Pratt in the Star Lord helmet.

Unlike several comic book films, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY hasn't been quick with revealing anything. To be fair, the development has taken some time which I think is completely necessary given the material. There was a footage, props., costuming, and an illustration of the main team. They looked great, and what we saw was pretty kick ass especially Karen Gillian's bald head. Amy Pond would be a little freaked out.

Over the weekend, we got some set photos. Nothing too significant but we do get a look at the make-up design on the various extras. We've got some blue, yellow, pink, Nova Corps, and to bring in another DOCTOR WHO reference, what looks like one of the Sisters of Plenitude. See them run across the Millennium Bridge while filming continues in London. There's a video of the action below.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY starring Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillian, Lee Pace, Djimon Hounsou, and Benicio del Toro hits theaters August 1, 2014.

Love that there's location work on a film like this. The Nova Corps uniforms looks pretty cool.

i dont like the nova corps uniforms, though they look better on actors than the did on the stand in at comic con. i hope these are just grunts and the nova characters will look more like the comics. i like the aliens designs though and rocket looks great

So far I'm liking what I've seen from this flick. So far. Overall, I trust Marvel & they trust James Gunn to do their property justice. So I'm looking forward to this.

When they showed the footage at SDCC, they said that they had just started production two weeks prior and that the cast had flown in from London for the con and were immediately flying back to continue shooting, so I think it's in its very early stages.

this looks GREAT

Gun has the perfect sense of how to pull this off. I'm happy with Diesel playing Groot...would be ecstatic with Steve Buschemi as Rocket

I'm here for the raccoon.

Looks like they did a great job with Rocket Raccoon in terms of his animation.

Unfortunately, though, I have to say I'm still not on-board with the rest of the film. I can't stand John C. Reilly for some reason, but maybe that will change with this movie. Who knows? And I kind of echo the thoughts of another person in the comments here when I say that it does look like a made-for-TV sci-fi film. Not knocking on the production values or anything, as those look spectacular. But from

Unfortunately, though, I have to say I'm still not on-board with the rest of the film. I can't stand John C. Reilly for some reason, but maybe that will change with this movie. Who knows? And I kind of echo the thoughts of another person in the comments here when I say that it does look like a made-for-TV sci-fi film. Not knocking on the production values or anything, as those look spectacular. But from those little snippets, and the story I've read of Guardians of the Galaxy, I think this needs quite a bit more time to cook before it's unleashed on cinemas.

It's one of those projects that feels like it won't adapt well to the screen in a live-action way without significant artistic liberties being taken. It is looking too true to the source material, which I think will make it come off as corny and ridiculous when it finally comes out.

Adding on to these worries, despite Joss Whedon's love affair with James Gunn as "the perfect director", I am still not convinced and I will not -be- convinced until I see this movie. I don't like James Gunn's movies at all, and I also can't stand him as a person from the few interviews I've seen. I don't like him :(

All this being said, of course I'll be going to this immediately when it comes out, assuming I'm not exhausted of Marvel properties by that point. But my worries for the film were more stimulated than quelled with those bits of footage and set photos.

Soon, every little boy in the land will want his very own homicidal raccoon.

I think out of all the marvel phase 2 films this is what I want to see most. We've already seen Iron man, Cap, Thor and Avengers. We all have a good idea what we're getting with those films. This is whole new territory and one I'm quite excited for. Rocket Racoon is just so badass, every kid is going to want a pet racoon.

In retrospect...

They should have built some actual sets to bring Oa to life in Green Lantern and they should have used more make up and less CGI. CGI effects work best when it isn't obviously CGI.
