We’ve been placing TV spots under the microscope to try get more footage from Guardians of the Galaxy, but this new international trailer will do just nicely. Driving home a more serious tone than previous full-length trailers, this U.K. marketing piece shows off a plethora of new footage to further whet our appetites. We’re given some backstory for Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, see/hear more of Bradley Cooper’s Rocket, who’ll be attempting to out-quip Quill, and even get some input from Vin Diesel’s Groot. There’s less than two months till we see Guardians of the Galaxy hit our screens, which is still way too long if you ask us.
Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio del Toro, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Karen Gillan, Gregg Henry, Michael Rooker, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.
Official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy:
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill 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.
