GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY (12A, SOUTH HOLLAND CENTRE, FROM SATURDAY)

Marvel continues to expand its cinematic universe beyond the Avengers and into the cosmos – with this group of relatively unknown second tier comic-book characters – which has become the box-office smash of the summer.

This rag-tag band of space bandits, led by Chris Pratt’s Peter ‘Star-Lord’ Quill – which includes deadly assassin Gamora (Star Trek’s Zoe Saldana), maniacal revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer (former WWE champ Dave Bautista), powerful tree-like humanoid Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) and gun-totting racoon Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) – team up to keep a powerful artefact out of the grasp of the villainous Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace), who has ambitions which threaten the entire universe.
