The summer movie season is here, but we'll have to wait until August to see this year's strangest, and possibly greatest offering, Guardians of the Galaxy. As part of our extended look at the summer movie season (check out our full guide to the 33 biggest movies here), we've put together five info-graphics for five of the most anticipated movies of the next few months. We'll be publishing one a day until Sunday. So far we've taken a closer look at The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Godzilla, and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Check back tomorrow or follow us on Facebook to see our final summer movie preview info-graphic (especially if you're a fan of giant robots).

Today's graphic breaks down the strange and wonderful characters from Guardians of the Galaxy. Just to be clear, this is a hugely anticipated movie with a blockbuster budget that stars a space raccoon, a sentient tree, a green space lady, and Benicio del Toro in a crazy white wig. But once you get past the initial shock, it all seems pretty great. Chris Pratt slimmed down and packed on some serious muscle for his starring role as Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, but his Parks and Recreation charm appears to be completely in-tact. Check out the graphic below to see how this whole timeline thing will work out in the movie.

I write about movies for, which means I spend way too much time thinking about the geekiest possible ways to approach the cineplex. I'm also hopelessly addicted to audio books. Follow me: Google
