Marvel Studios’ ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Trailer Looks [Obscene Headline Alert] Rad

Untitled-1

Staring Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, and the voices of Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper as Groot and Rocket Racoon, respectively, Guardians of the Galaxy is the first Marvel Studios film to depict some of the decidedly less iconic characters of the Marvel comic book universe. In an interview with USA Today’s Brian Truitt, Pratt and Guardians director James Gunn shared new images from the film and revealed some details about the characters and the overall nature of the film, which they hope will be a “fresh diversion” for superhero movie fans who’ve been seen the same movie again and again and again.

Why don't you check out the first full trailer and tell us how close they came to that mark.
