Rocket Raccoon has something to say in James Gunn's 'Guardians of the Galaxy'

According to Comic Book Movie on Saturday, yet another "Guardians of the Galaxy" teaser has made its way online. This time, Rocket Raccoon, voiced by Bradley Cooper, is fired up and ready to blow away anyone that gets in his way. The team of misfits are not too well known to the regular movie theater going audience, but it appears that Marvel Studios is going out if it's way to create trailers for trailers in order to garner the attention before the film is released.

The film stars Zoe Saldana who portrays the role of Gamora who is both a soldier and assassin. She faces off with Nebula in the film as they have a history together according to the recent "Guardians of the Galaxy Prelude" comic book. They both have close ties to Thanos who is the puppet master of all things in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

If any come book fans recall, Thanos seeks out the Infinity Gems and so far two of the six have been found already. One of them is being kept under guard by The Collector, played by Benicio Del Toro. As seen at the end of the "Thor: The Dark World" post-credits scene, he really anticipates collecting them all.

NBC "Parks and Recreation's" Chris Pratt, an unlikely actor chosen by Gunn to play the role of Star-Lord is the main lead. Cocky, humorous, and sure of himself, it appears he has means to survive a last minute attack by Korath the Pursuer and his thugs. He has a passion for nostalgic Mother Earth and it's even demonstrated in a previous trailer where his Walkman is confiscated by the prison authorities. The consequences for Peter Jason Quill attempting to retrieve his music device were quite "shocking". David Bautista is Drax the Destroyer and Vin Diesel voices Groot.

"Guardians of the Galaxy" is scheduled to be released on Aug. 1.
