My most anticipated blockbuster of the Summer now has a new trailer. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a different breed of superhero film, one that proved as much when its first trailer was released back in February. Focusing on a group of heroes that are relatively unknown to the mainstream, many have proclaimed Guardians of the Galaxy to be Marvel’s riskiest film property to date, but with its offbeat sense of humor and Star Wars-esque visuals on full display in this latest trailer, I personally expect this to be a big hit at the box office come August.
Guardians stars Chris Pratt (Parks & Recreation) as Peter Quill AKA Star-Lord, a half-human, half-alien criminal who forms a team with Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (WWE’s Dave Bautista), a tree with a limited vocabulary named Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), and a machine-gun toting raccoon named Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) in order to fend off a manhunt by Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace), who is looking to obtain a mysterious orb that Quill has stolen.
Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters August 1st. Check out the new trailer below.
