The Gladiator star met with each guest, gretting them before the crowd became overwelming. Hounsou introduced the film announcing: “Hold onto your seat. You are in for a wild ride!”

He plays Korath, an antagonist in the film which centers on Peter Quill and the formation of a team of anti-heores: Quill as Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer (Dave Baustista), Zoe Saldana as Gamora and Rocket the Raccoon, Groot – voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.

The unlikely team battle to recover the dangerous Infinity Stone from the clutches of Ronan The Accuser, a psychotic villain bent on destroying the headquarters of Nova Corps and their planet. Guardians is indeed a thrill ride, with a ton of laughs and great effects – check out a full revew link below.

Disney hosted the event to raise awareness for the MEAC/SWAC Challenge which Disney raises funds for each school’s education program. The August 31 game will be between Alabama A&M and North Carolina A&T.  For more information or tickets, go HERE.

At last week’s San Diego Comic Con, Marvel announced that the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy will arrive in theaters in 2017, retaining the cast and director James Gunn.

The film also stars Lee Pace, Benicio Del Toro, Karen Gillan, John C. Reilly, Michael Rooker, Peter Serafinowicz, and Glenn Close.
