Well, it’s good to see, the trailer for Marvel’s latest offering, Guardians of the Galaxy, doesn’t follow the standard formula for action trailers. Instead of inundating the screen with explosion after explosion, the five so-called “Guardians” — Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer — are introduced by their rap sheets with comic flair. It rightfully sets the tone for the upcoming movie, but for those looking for something more substantial (especially after the teased anticipation) will have to wait for following trailers. Watch the first taste now, I believe you’ll be “hooked on a feeling.”
Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Benicio Del Toro, John C. Reilly, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan and employs the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.
An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where 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 Quill 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 — with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
Guardians of the Galaxy saves the universe from the comfort of US and UK theaters on August 1, 2014.
