By the time Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters it will be the fourth Marvel movie of the summer, and arguably the one with the most questions surrounding it. Can a team only the most die-hard fanbody has heard of be the centerpiece of a new franchise? How will the quirky intergalactic comedy mesh with the rest of Marvel's successful Avengers flicks? And what about the unproven cast of Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista? Will audiences be too tired of superhero flicks to turn up?
Those questions aren't going anywhere but now, after a weekend full of teasers, a new full trailer has been released. This one proves just how in-sync writer/director James Gunn is with fans in that he gives them everything they expect from the Guardians of the Galaxy. Not only do we get Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) itching for a fight, but we finally get to hear Vin Diesel's "I am Groot!!" Plus there's the romantic tension between Star-Lord and Gamora, silly hijinks, crazy aliens, plus Glenn Close (!!!) sporting a wild haircut. Yep, this looks like fun.
Guardians of the Galaxy opens August 1st.
