Like in Star Wars, it might be claimed that the real star of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy are its space ships. The Milano is to Peter Quill as the Millennium Falcon is to Han Solo. It’s his trusty steed and contains precious cargo.

It is versatile enough to operate in a dog fight, yet large enough to carry the team into danger. Director James Gunn wanted it to have a “muscle car” feel. I love its retro-vibe

GOTG_Payoff_1-ShtA few weeks ago those in the know would have told you Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” had a tough road ahead of it. It had unknown characters, an unproven lead actor, a director best known for films that are kind of out there, and was opening in an already dreary summer as far as box office goes. A Marvel film without super heroes? Who would go see it?

Turns out, just about everyone. Early estimates for the weekend show James Gunn’s space opera ringing in $94 million in space credits. That’s a new record for August openings.
