Guardians of the Galaxy Star Shares New Behind The Scenes Photo

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been performing great at the box office overseas and it's currently rocking a solid 4.25/5.00 in the ComicBook Anticipation Rankings.

Needless to say, James Gunn’s next entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is roaring full steam ahead as it inches closer to its domestic debut here in the United States.

Chris Pratt — the superstar actor who portrays Peter Quill/Starlord in the MCU — took a chance to post a great behind the scenes look at the alien sisters Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) and it just goes to show, even alien assassins need to take a second every so often to see if any of their friends have been sending them snaps or poking them on Facebook. After all, people still poke…right?

The picture — which was almost certainly done while breaking from a marathon film session while Vol. 2 was still shooting — shows Saldana and Gillan, both in full makeup, checking their phones as they wait for their next instruction from Gunn.

Hmm, I wonder what kind of geofilters Knowhere has to offer. Maybe we’ll find out in the third Guardians of the Galaxy.
