Far out in space, Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) – abducted from Earth when he was a young boy – steals a mysterious orb and immediately finds himself the centre of a galactic manhunt. Pursued by the evil and merciless Ronan The Accuser, he is captured by the Nova Corps and forced into an uneasy alliance with a ragtag group of fellow prisoners to escape and fence the orb as quickly as possible. However, when Quill finds out the true power of the orb and the threat it poses, he rallies an unlikely alliance of pirates, mercenaries and law enforcement to stage a last desperate stand against complete annihilation.
Dazzling, irreverent, risky and triumphant, Marvel’s decision to step almost completely away from the building Avengers storyline to introduce a whole new set of characters with little-to-no name recognition outside of comic book fans was the ultimate expression of confidence and strength from the MCU.

Oh, yeah. The Power Stone is the movie’s central macguffin
Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Thanos himself (Josh Brolin)
Stan’s chilling out on Xandar, chatting to the ladies.
No teasers for future instalments, but there’s a shock return to the cinematic fold for Howard The Duck.
Karen Gillan actually shaved her head for the role of Nebula
