Hot on the heels of that Guardians of the Galaxy teaser trailer that premiered earlier today, the first full trailer has landed and it was more than worth the wait.
In fact, it is out of this world. And as the song that plays through the latter third says, we are “Hooked on a Feeling” that Marvel has done something truly special in their introduction of these five heroes in the first trailer.
John C. Reilly goes over the quintet as they are arrested for various crimes against the universe. First, we meet Drax, aka The Destroyer (Dave Bautista), a man who has been out for vengeance since his wife and family were killed. We then meet Gamora (Zoe Saldana) who is an assassin wanted on numerous counts of murder. Next up is what, so far, we think might be our favorite character… Rocket Raccoon! Voiced by Bradley Cooper, this little guy is not to be messed with.
Then, we get Groot! Voiced by Vin Diesel, he is introduced as Rocket’s houseplant/muscle. Finally, the final piece of the Guardians of the Galaxy puzzle is put in place and we see why they cast Chris Pratt as Jason Quill, aka Star Lord. The man who has a knack for humor unlike any other, puts it on full display. All told... we are introduced to the Guardians of the Galaxy!
Movie Fanatic is beyond thrilled with this first trailer and the images also of Benicio del Toro’s character (who we met at the end of Thor: The Dark World) and a slew of other Guardians of the Galaxy characters that have us waiting with bated breath for the August 1 premiere for Marvel’s all-new universe.
