In the first clip from Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt is surprised to learn that those who wish to incarcerate him have not heard of him. "I'm Star Lord, legendary outlaw," he says. To which, Djimon Hounsou replies, "Who?"
Much of the world could probably ask the same question as Marvel has the task of introducing the world to its newest group of superheroes, and judging by the first Guardians of the Galaxy trailer, studio head Kevin Feige and the film's director James Gunn are well on their way to success.
Pratt is just one spoke in the wheel that comprises the Guardians of the Galaxy. Zoe Saldana is Gamora, Dave Bautista is Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper voices Rocket Raccoon and Vin Diesel provides the voice for Groot. They're a powerful bunch, but what we appreciate about this group of interstellar heroes is the sense of humor mixed with jaw-dropping action.
Look for Guardians of the Galaxy this summer on August 1.
