First look at Marvel’s out-of-this-world action adventure.
This first trailer debuted on Jimmy Kimmel Live in the US and serves as an introduction to the characters that few outside of the comic book world will be aware.
Directed by James Gunn, the film stars Chris Pratt as the improbably named Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Dave Bautista as Drax and Groot, voiced by Vin Diesel.
Marvel’s synopsis for the film says: “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.”
Let’s face it… we’ve all been there.
Guardians of the Galaxy is set for release on August 1.
