If you liked the first Guardians of the Galaxy trailer well then prepare for... more or less the same kind of thing only with a more serious tone and some fresh footage. That's not really a complaint, there's actually quite a bit more to see from the James Gunn-directed film starring Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Bradley cooper as Rocket Raccoon and Vin Diesel as Groot. Most of it involves laser guns and space ships, to boot.

Perhaps the freshest offering in the trailer is the detailed look at Ronan (the Accuser), who until now principally existed in LEGO and action figure form in the minds of fans. Now he can be seen, like, brooding and walking. Sadly, he doesn't accuse anybody of anything, but that's what we've got a whole movie for, right?

Guardians of the Galaxy opens on August 1.
