Guardians of the Galaxy opens in Japan; James Gunn comments, and watch the trailer


Guardians of the Galaxy current sits at close to $600 million worldwide at the box office, and it still has yet to open in some pretty big markets.

Today sees the film premiere in Japan, and director James Gunn took to his Facebook page to share his thoughts as well as a cool piece of comic book-inspired art from Poster Posse.

You can also check out the Japanese trailer below, which is rather fun, as well as a Japanese Guardians of the Galaxy swag video.

Dear the entire country of Japan -
My film Guardians of the Galaxy is opening inside of you right NOW. I know I have a lot of amazing friends and fans there I've met over the years, so if you could go see Guardians, I would very much appreciate it. And, if you like it, please spread the word. That would be AWESOME. Thank you. 
xo, James
