With insane box office and glowing reviews, Guardians of the Galaxy is shaping up to be the movie of the summer.

So there's really no need for Chris Pratt to continue promoting the film that's made him an A-list Star-Lord. But even so, Chris keeps dropping viral gems all over the Internet. 

Yesterday, Pratt showed off his rap skills with an amazing Eminem impression. Today, he gives us a tour of Peter Quill's awesomely futuristic/retro ship, the Milano.

The ship name and the old school tape deck aren't the only things that might gave you a flashback here.

If you're of a certain age, the impeccable homage to MTV Cribs will bring you back to a time when C-list pop stars showed you "where the magic happens" every week.

Despite (or perhaps because of) the film's bizarre premise and cast of characters, Guardians of the Galaxy reviews have been overwhelmingly positive, and the latest Marvel adaptation is expected to be a major box office hit.

So, naturally spoilers and leaked footage abound on the Internet today, with one surprise tidbit generating global cries of, "WTF?"

If you're not familiar with the 1986 film Howard the Duck, consider yourself lucky. Like Selena Gomez' latest movie, Howard was a notorious box office flop and is still considered to be one of the worst movies ever made.

But, believe it or not, Howard actually shares a few things in common with the much-bigger-budget, much-more-well-received Guardians:

Chris Pratt is buff and often shirtless. Zoe Saldana is green. And Bradley Cooper is a talking raccoon.

If nothing else, Guardians of the Galaxy very much has our attention.

But should it have our money? Should we go see Marvel's latest superhero movie this weekend? A number of critics around the Internet have weighed in and here's a rundown of what they have to say...

The people who made this movie must have had a swell time in the process, and it's nice to see a summer epic that takes itself so unseriously. - Joe Morgenstern

The motley crew's repartee makes for comedy that's surprisingly consistent, yet freewheeling and sharp enough to pinball from Kevin Bacon to Jackson Pollock and back. - Tom Russo

The first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, as fans of this Marvel classic now have their first look at a light-hearted take on a series of comic book characters led by Chris Pratt.

Set to Blue Swede's "Hooked on a Feeling," the footage features Pratt trying to look tough as Star-Lord, along with Bradley Cooper voicing Rocket Raccoon and John C. Reilly evaluating an unusual group of potential heroes.

Guardians of the Galaxy will be released on August 1 and it looks hilariously awesome.

We got a rare glimpse into the filming of the upcoming Marvel film, Guardians of the Galaxy, the other day and today there is even more. 

This time it's Michael Rooker as Yondu along with the film's director, James Gunn.

There's been a flurry of Guardians of the Galaxy news lately, with Gregg Henry announcing his involvement plus Bradley Cooper's talks with the studio regarding Rocket Raccoon.

The film is scheduled to open in theaters on August 1st of next year.

When Gregg Henry announced his involvement in frequent collaborator James Gunn's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, it was speculated that he may be the voice of Rocket Raccoon. 

Now, thanks to Latino Review, it appears as if that speculation might be over and it isn't Henry's name attached to the space dwelling raccoon, rather it is none other than Bradley Cooper!

Fancy Bradley Cooper

The site, that is often the source of movie rumors, is saying that Cooper is at the top of Marvel's list for the voice of Rocket Raccoon.

Vin Diesel is Groot and now it appears as if Gregg Henry is joining the Marvel film as well.

The Scandal star tweeted out earlier, "OK UK hold on, I'm comin'. Joining @James Gunn again - #Slither #Super - this time for @Marvel #GuardiansOfTheGalaxy. Gonnabegreat!"

Outside of his very savvy twitter usage, the tweet doesn't give much information beyond that of Henry's involvement in the upcoming film. Most of the main characters have already been cast, outside of Rocket Raccoon.

Could Gregg Henry be Rocket Raccoon? We'll just have to wait and find out.

After the Vin Diesel as Groot rumor this morning, now it's time for some behind the scenes looks at Guardians of the Galaxy!

In a back and forth to somewhat rival John Barrowman's involvement in the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special, Vin Diesel is hinting once again that he is part of a Marvel project.

Diesel posted the image below on his Facebook page and although it was taken down from the main page, it can still be found in the photo albums.

Vin Diesel Groot

That, of course, would be the Guardians of the Galaxy member, Groot. 

Despite Marvel Studios president, Kevin Feige, saying that Diesel wasn't involved in anything at the studio any time soon, could he be the voice of Groot?

Hopefully we'll know either way very soon!
