The Guardians of the Galaxy trailer premiered last night on Jimmy Fallon Live and while I have no idea how the actual show was, the trailer is fantastic. Check it out:
Holy crap, this looks wonderful. They are definitely leaning more towards the humor side, it seems; which is no surprise considering most of the Marvel movies have at least some form of comedy, though I was expecting it to feel more like how the Star Trek reboots were.
Unfortunately we were not able to hear much of the cast talk, save for Starlord and some scientists/police/who-knows. While I am disappointed I couldn’t witness that, I am definitely excited for more. August 1 cannot come any sooner!
Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill [Chris Pratt] finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan [Lee Pace], a powerful villain with ambitious that threatens the entire universe.
To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits – Rocket [Bradley Cooper], a gun-toting raccoon, Groot [Vin Diesel], a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora [Zoe Saldana] and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer [Dave Bautista].
But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
Guardians of the Galaxy is set to release August 1, 2014.
