Full Guardians Of The Galaxy Trailer Flies in

Following on from the new pictures yesterday (see bottom of the article), Marvel has punched the Guardians Of The Galaxy marketing campaign up a gear, sending Chris Pratt to US talk show Jimmy Kimmel Live with the trailer, which has now arrived online.

With Marvel gambling that less comic book-savvy audiences have been primed by Thor and the rest to accept more out-there concepts, Guardians sends us hurtling into deep space to meet a very different gang of heroes. Well, we say heroes… We’re introduced to Peter Quill (who would rather everyone called him Star-Lord), played by Chris Pratt, taken from Earth at age nine and in possession of a mysterious McGuffin orb. He’s grown up into a cheeky, daring adult who pilots a ship called the Milano.

In a prison, he meets an unusual suspects line-up of aliens including Gamora (Zoe Saldana), a green-skinned assassin, Drax The Destroyer (Dave Bautista), a hulking warrior, talking tree Groot (Vin Diesel) and gruff warrior Rocket Racoon (Bradley Cooper).

Yes, a walking, talking, gun-toting Raccoon. And a tree-man. And Peter Serafinowicz working with John C. Reilly! This is the wild world distilled from the Guardians comics by writer/director James Gunn and is shaping up to be a whole lot of fun.

The trailer is, for the most part, what was shown at Comic-Con last year, with some new footage of Rocket, Groot and the rest and with Pratt channelling his inner Han Solo. Everything gives off the feel of classic sci-fi serials welded to the Marvel sensibility for the requisite thrills and universe-building. It all comes across as big and a little daring and will hopefully live up to all that it promises. We’ll see when **Guardians Of The Galaxy **hits UK cinemas on August 1.{New Guardians Of The Galaxy Images}
