Rocket Raccoon and Groot star in new Guardians Of The Galaxy poster

Guardians Of The Galaxy has released a new poster online, giving the spotlight to two of its more colourful characters, Groot and Rocket Raccoon.

The new poster shows Rocket perched upon Groot's shoulders, unleashing hell from some sort of firearm that looks as least as big as he is!

The two characters will come as something of a double-act in the new film, with Groot serving as a kind of minder to Rocket… not that he needs much protecting, from the looks of this latest image.

Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel will be voicing Rocket and Groot respectively, with both looking set to make off with their fair share of scenes. You will believe that a tree can fight!

Directed by James Gunn and co-starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Benicio del Toro, Guardians Of The Galaxy opens in the UK on 1 August 2014.
