Must Watch: First Out of This World 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Trailer
"They call themselves the Guardians of the Galaxy." Ever since the first footage from Marvel's forthcoming cosmic superhero ensemble, Guardians of the Galaxy, debuted at Comic-Con 2013, general audiences have been waiting for the first trailer. That moment has finally arrived, and the next Phase Two title from Marvel Studios looks like a ragtag sci-fi hit. Chris Pratt leads a team of galactic misfits, including a giant tree (Vin Diesel), a badass talking raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and two tough aliens (Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista). It's nice to finally see such exciting footage for this revealed (via Jimmy Kimmel) and they give us a good chunk to enjoy and ponder, too. This is a stop everything and must watch trailer, so fire it up.
Here's the first trailer for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy, originally from Kimmel's YouTube:
Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). Brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand. The Marvel Studios film arrives in theaters August 1st, 2014.
