Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY is one funny intergalactic romp featuring a Han Solo-type lead, a tough, green chick, an angry, talking raccoon, a walking stump and some colorful aliens. So to celebrate the release of Marvel's sci-fi adventure August 1st, here are nine other films featuring some comedic, extraterrestrial creatures trying to save the world or destroy it.
1. Guardians of the Galaxy
The Marvel film is a throwback to the classic sci-fi adventures such as Buck Rogers. Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, David Bautista, and the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, these Guardians of the Galaxy are a hilarious bunch. Movie Review
