WHO'S INVITED?

You are! You can come as you are, don your best 70s chic, or bring your Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy cosplay...come and play!

Be a winner on the big night

If you join our virtual red carpet night, you could win seats for that night's private movie screening! Choose your contest: a dance-off to Peter Quill's 70s mixtape; sharing your best cosplay pictures; or the chance to ask the cast a question during our live simulcast. Only guests can win a place at the screening – so if you're not an NYC dweller, tell those who are.

PETER QUILL (aka STAR-LORD)
GAMORA
DRAX
ROCKET
GROOT
MEET THE PLAYAS

Equipped with high-tech weaponry, a dependable starship and a mix-tape of music from home, the headstrong Peter Quill must rally an unlikely team of misfits - the Guardians of the Galaxy - for an all-or-nothing attempt to protect the cosmos.

For years Gamora has used her formidable fighting skills and master swordsmanship, earning her the reputation of the “most dangerous woman in the universe."

The heavily-tattooed Drax has long relied on his proficiency in battle and his razor-sharp blades to do his talking for him.

Despite his diminutive stature and raccoon-like appearance, the scrappy mercenary known as Rocket possesses a remarkable mastery of munitions and battle tactics.

The taciturn Groot makes up for his limited vocabulary with his ability to grow and manipulate his giant bark-covered form as needed.

Question the cast

To mark the movie release, Skype and Marvel are giving one lucky fan a spot on a group video call with the cast. We're rummaging through your video entries to find the best – bear with us!
