Marvel have unveiled the first trailer for their second film for this year, Guardians Of The Galaxy. The company has made a bold choice in bringing this comic property to the big screen as its not as well known as their previous hits such as Iron Man and Thor.
The films characters include a talking racoon, a man born in the eighties on earth and then raised in space, a green skinned woman and a talking tree known as Groot.
We’ve seen very little of this film so far. During the end credits for Thor: The Dark World and there was a teaser linking the plot of that film into Guardians Of The Galaxy and also revealing a character called The Collector played by Benicio Del Toro. The only other footage known to be shown publicly was at the 2013 San Diego Comic Con which reportedly went down a storm.
Guardians Of The Galaxy opens in the US and UK on 1st August.
In the far reaches of space, an American pilot named Peter Quill finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan. In order to evade Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a group of misfits including Gamora, Rocket, Drax the Destroyer and Groot. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand — with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
