Empire's Guardians Of The Galaxy Covers Are Here

Ladies, gentlemen, sentient trees and genetically-altered critters, the new issue of Empire hits newsstands this week, and we can now reveal our fabulous Guardians Of The Galaxy cover and subscribers' cover. Yes, that is the titular "bunch of A-holes" on our main cover. And yes, those are the nefarious evildoers they're up against on the cover we've sent to our most loyal readers. Get a better look below.

Inside the mag we have our complete report from the film's UK set, as well as updates from director James Gunn and his cast, including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillen, Lee Pace and Dave Bautista.

"There's a lot of strange stuff in the movie," says Gunn in our feature. "But that's the thing that makes it different. For cinema to remain relevant, you really need to not make every film seem like it's Transformers 18 and to try to make things that are a little bit different."
