New Glenn Close Poster & Lee Pace Guardians of the Galaxy Image
Two more images for Guardians of the Galaxy have hit the net featuring Glenn Close as Nova Prime and a behind-the-scenes look at Lee Pace, who plays the film's villain with Ronan, taking Star-Lord's Milano spaceship for a drive.
Gunn included the following on his social networks:
#gotgpicoftheday Ronan takes the Milano for a spin. So many of us on the cast and crew were like kids around the giant toys on set. Lee Pace, who plays Ronan, wanted his photo in Peter Quill's ship and I happily obliged. The Milano, though hardly the biggest set in the film, was possibly production designer Charlie Wood's most impressive. In person it seemed every inch a believable spacecraft. It was two levels high and inspired equally by the Apollo space program, the pulp art of Chris Foss, American muscle cars, and what we imagined was an older cousin Peter Quill idolized who had a 1980's stoner van (some of the walls have shag carpeting). The Milano is a souped-up version of the Ravagers' M-ships. Charlie Wood and I discussed early on that different cultures would have different cultural priorities. On Earth all of our technology is geared towards the priorities of ease and luxury. But other worlds could have other priorities - say, aesthetics or procreation. In the case of the Ravagers, what was most important was a tactile sense of control. Of course they had the technology for more automated crafts, but they wanted to be in control and totally feel the power of the engines and the gears beneath them. Touch is important. So all of their ships were designed around this one concept. #guardiansofthegalaxy #gotg
