Djimon Hounsou talks Guardians Of The Galaxy

Djimon Hounsou was out promoting his new movie Baggage Claim this weekend, which naturally meant that all he talked about was his role in the currently-shooting Guardians Of The Galaxy .

The actor is playing Korath the Pursuer in the sci-fi epic, and stars opposite the likes of Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Karen Gillan.

" Guardians Of The Galaxy is a completely different world," Hounsou told Collider . "It has no place in this world. Even for us, coming to set and looking at it, you go, 'Wow!' Every other day, you feel like you’re in a different part of the galaxy. You don’t feel like you’re on planet earth."

On the topic of the appeal of Marvel movies, the actor added: "We like to make the Marvel comics films because they’re fun. Families can go see them together. They’re entertaining. They aspire to inspire, and that is cool.

"At the same time, not all of us can identify and connect, necessarily. But, Marvel movies are so much fun. Those guys are creating fun stuff."

We couldn't agree more.

Guardians Of The Galaxy opens in cinemas on 1 August 2014.
