First there were the X-Men. Then there were The Avengers. Now, it's time to meet Marvel’s latest crime-fighting superhero squad: the Guardians of the Galaxy.
If you tuned in to "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" earlier this week, then you were treated to star Chris Pratt dropping by to premiere the first trailer for the film -- and it’s definitely colorful! I mean, one Guardian is a racoon. Another is a tree. These are definitely not your average run-of-the-mill crime fighting team... Oh, and did I forget to mention that they do all this IN SPACE?
In you haven't seen it yet, check it out below:
I have to break down this trailer just a little bit: we meet Jason Quill (played by an extremely buff Chris Pratt -- woo!), one of the Guardians who appears to steal an important looking orb before being arrested by a bunch of bored space cops. We then get to meet the other Guardians, who are introduced to us by none other than one of my personal favorite actors, John C. Reilly. The five include Quill, Drax (played by wrestler Dave Batista), deadly Gamora (Zoe Saldana), the machine gun-wielding Rocket Racoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), and an angry tree with the voice of Vin Diesel. If that last sentence doesn’t make you excited to see this film, I’m honestly not sure what will. The trailer’s got a bit of a “Firefly” feel to it, which makes my own inner nerd girl giddy. Hopefully, we’ll get some more trailers released before the movie hits theaters on August 1!
