Well here it is, the first trailer for Guardians Of The Galaxy, the next Marvel Comics movie, hitting theaters August 1, 2014.
The Guardians are a ragtag group from across the universe who have come together to protect the galaxy from evil. Leading the team is Peter Quill, also known as Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) the only human of the bunch. Under his leadership are Gamora (Zoe Saldana), the adopted daughter of Thanos, Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), an alien bent on revenge after the death of his family, Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), a genetically engineered raccoon designed to kill, and his mostly silent partner, Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), a tree-like humanoid. Together they are The Guardians Of The Galaxy.
The film, directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super) will also feature John C. Reilly, Benicio Del Toro, Glenn Close, Djimon Hounsou, and Michael Rooker amongst others.
This is going to be a very interesting expansion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, taking us deep into space like we’ve not yet seen. The Guardian Of The Galaxy are the least known characters that Marvel has brought to the Big Screen yet and it will be interesting to see how non-comic fans take to these very quirky and different characters.
