The first Guardians of the Galaxy poster (above) took a classic (some might say clichéd) layout and made it fresh by virtue of a combination of attitude (‘You’re welcome’) and having two of the main characters be a raccoon and a tree. Now they’ve done it again – taking a rather standard action pose and infusing it with the same nonchalant irreverence. Check it out after the jump.
Guardians of the Galaxy opens on August 1st.
