The first trailer for Marvel’s biggest 2014 release, Guardians of the Galaxy, has just been launched. Taking off from one of the franchises lesser known comic lines, the ‘Guardians’ are a rag tag bunch of Neolithic no-gooders in a space-cultured solar system, and through their various mischeifs they end up imprisoned together. Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), an ent-like entity named Groot (Vin Diesel), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Gamora (Zoe Saldana) make up the eponymous tag team. They’re joined by a wealth of interesting intergalactics , played by such luminaries as Benicio Del Toro and Peter Serafinowicz.
Guardians of the Galaxy is only mega-geek James Gunn’s third feature, and if this trailer is anything to go by, then it’s probably the biggest he’ll ever make. If his 2010 film was Super, then this comic book spectacular should be called Super-Wicked-Cool… Check out the trailer below, and be sure to look out for sequels Protectors of Mars, Security for the Snickers and, of course, fan favourite The Good, The Bad and The Bounty.
