This might be the first bit of promotional material for Guardians of the Galaxy that actually has me seriously stoked for the film.
A new extended trailer for the upcoming Marvel film was released yesterday and features heavily on Chris Pratt as he tries to convince the other misfits, like Gamora, Drax, Groot, and Rocket Raccoon, that it’s up to them to save the galaxy, only to have Rocket question, “Why would you want to save the galaxy?”
All of that is intertwined with amazing action footage, including hilarious comedic snaps. The trailer ends with Star-Lord and Rocket arguing over the team’s lack of a plan. Groot stands by Star-Lord and proceeds to eat a leaf growing from his arm. The team wasn’t too thrilled to see that.
Watch the full extended trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy below:
It took some time, but this writer is finally starting to see the appeal of a superhero film that has strong comedic tie-ins. Plus, anything that includes a Nathan Fillion cameo instantly earns itself a place on my must-watch list.
Guardians of the Galaxy will hit theatres on August 1, 2014.
