A few pictures from Guardians of the Galaxy showed up in Entertainment Weekly, and while they aren’t as exciting as the trailers and clips we’ve seen, they are new. And they give us a little more info about the movie. The first photo shows the whole gang hanging out in jail, which isn’t a surprise because we’ve already seen their futuristic space mugshots, but who would have thought they wear yellow in space jail? Also, why is Star-Lord holding a prosthetic leg? I’m guessing that’s the end of their space prison riot. The third is just a picture of Chris Pratt in his costume, running toward a camera. So if you see the movie in 3D, it’ll be like he’s running right at you.
The second image is a little more interesting. It shows Pratt and Zoe Saldana as Star-Lord and Gamora, respectively, and Pratt is holding that weird metal space ball he picks up at the beginning of the trailer. I’ve double-checked this clip, and he doesn’t have the ball when he makes his escape. Since he regains it at some point, is that the MacGuffin the plot is built around? And if so, what the hell is it?
