Find out who's guarding the galaxy

Our red carpet night

On the night of the world premiere, Skype and Marvel recognized real-life guardians of New York City, the Police Athletic League NYC, with an unforgettable party: our virtual red carpet night.

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 gave one lucky fan a spot on a group video call with the cast of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Find out how the team fared in this footage.
