Guardians of the Galaxy is officially the Summer Blockbuster of 2014, earning strong reviews and box office results. But a last-minute promotional push couldn’t hurt: In the above video, star Chris Pratt shows off Peter Quill’s ultra-cool Milano spaceship in a style reminiscent of MTV’s Cribs.
First, Pratt showcases the ship’s “common area” (“As you can see, I keep it pretty filthy”) before moving over to the massive touch-screen and pretending to use the device in character. (“When you see me doing this in the movie,” he says, “I’m picturing that I’m on my Twitter feed.”) Of course, it wouldn’t be a true Crib rip without showing “where the magic happens,” so Pratt takes fans over to Quill’s bunk and points out his old-school tape deck.
The actor also talks about the Milano’s unique look, which Pratt calls “retro in space,” with its mixture of old-school charm and futuristic eye candy. And he ends the clip in true Cribs style, staring into the camera and yelling, “Now get the fuck OUT!” like a proper celebrity. (Fun fact: Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn recently confirmed on Twitter that the ship was named after Quill’s “awesome childhood crush Alyssa Milano.”)
Rolling Stone‘s Peter Travers praised the film in his 3 1/2 star review: “Guardians of the Galaxy is crowded with characters and incidents that sometimes spill over into confusion and chaos,” our critic wrote. “Still, this orphan child of the Marvel universe possesses a wild-card energy and a throwaway charm that its bloated bigger-budget brothers should envy. Even a sequel doesn’t inspire dread. Should the Guardians take on the Avengers? Hell, yeah!”
