The Guardians of the Galaxy marketing assault is currently in full swing. We finally got a taste of the first official trailer on Wednesday, followed up yesterday by a couple of brief promo clips featuring Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), Groot (Vin Diesel) and Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista). Now it’s time to get to know Gamora (Zoe Saldana).
And last but certainly not least, a few words from the Star Lord himself, Peter Quill (Chris Pratt).
Now that we’re getting to know the characters a bit, Marvel has also released the first poster for the film, which should begin popping up in theaters very soon (if it hasn’t already shown up).
Guardians of the Galaxy opens on August 1.
An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
