Who would have thought that it would be a Guardians of the Galaxy international trailer that would prove to be not only the best, but the most enlightening?! Sure, that first Guardians of the Galaxy trailer let us know that James Gunn’s Marvel movie would have a sense of humor, but this latest teaser firmly puts the high stakes front and center.
The above teaser also gives us the origins of Chris Pratt’s Star Lord and when he was taken off earth and sent into the galaxy for a lifetime of adventure. There’s also a fantastic scene between Star Lord and the Bradley Cooper-voiced Rocket Raccoon that concerns why one should not leave bombs lying around!
Guardians of the Galaxy lands August 1 and is the latest in a long line of successful franchise start-ups from Marvel that began with the flick you can see when you watch Iron Man online and has taken us all the way through this past spring’s triumphant Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
The studio with the Midas touch seems to be bordering on platinum with their latest!
Pratt and Cooper are joined in the all-star cast by Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio del Toro, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Karen Gillan, Gregg Henry, Michael Rooker and the voice of Vin Diesel as Groot.
