Originally heralded as a long-shot risk from Marvel Studios, Guardians Of The Galaxy has now become a huge hit in its own right, breaking August box-office records and making thousands of kids reconsider what they believe to be their favourite film.
Talking to the writer-director behind it all, James Gunn, we find out more about how it was made, and in our hour-long discussion afterwards, get into the nitty-gritty of what makes the weird and wonderful space comedy-opera work. Look forward to a surprisingly lengthy chat about the availability of AA batteries in space, as well as a round of applause for that credit sting.
