In the trailer viewers are shown the gang of the 5 guardians. First of all Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) is kidnapped and taken to a remote prison. Then viewers meet the rest of the rag-tag bunch, with Gamora (Zoe Saldana) Drax The Destroyer (WWE’s Dave Bautista), Groot (Vin Diesel) and Rocket Racoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper). To say that’s an eclectic mix would be an understatement and they are all introduced to us by Peter Serafinowicz and John C. Reilly. We do also catch a glimpse of Benicio Del Toro’s The Collector who was in the post-credits scene of Thor: The Dark World.
With mainly comedy actors and relatively lesser-known action stars filling out the roles, it’s quite a gamble by Marvel, but the film does seem to be in the same style to the rest of their films with humour and a load of fun thrown into the Space-Opera mix.
The film hits UK cinemas on August 1 and the trailer is below:
