The first interstellar trailer for Marvel’s anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live and is now online. Star Chris Pratt was a guest and brought along the trailer; the first extended footage from the film. Set to hit cinemas August 1st, Guardians of the Galaxy will be the first big Marvel venture into their universe’s lesser known characters, and is the final part of Marvel’s Phase 1 films before the next Avengers movie.
Anyone who stayed for the end credits scene in Thor: The Dark World would have gotten a taste of Benicio Del Toro’s character The Collector from the film, but now we get our first real look at wacky characters like Rocket Raccoon and Groot. Guardians of the Galaxy stars Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista and the voices of Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.
The film’s official synopsis reads as follows:
In the far reaches of space, an American pilot named Peter Quill / Star-Lord finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan. In order to evade Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a group of misfits including Gamora, Rocket, Drax the Destroyer and Groot. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
