You’re about to be high on believing in Marvel’s sci fi epic.
The first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy is now online, after making its debut last night on Jimmy Kimmel… and it is incredible. It plays as a great introduction to both our new team of heroes and the intergalactic setting of the movie.
With a director like James Gunn, a decidedly less heroic team of heroes and our first, ever deep space setting in a Marvel movie, it’s been clear that Guardians will be a unique entry to the overall Marvel Cinematic Universe. But they’re going ALL IN with this one– Guardians not only shows off some cool otherworldly creatures and environments, but it’s without a doubt the funniest and craziest Marvel trailer yet.
The teaser does a great job of establishing our characters and setting the tone of the movie, which feels absolutely perfect both for the source material and James Gunn’s sensibilities as a director. In addition to the rundown of the Guardians, we get to see the Nova Corps, a glimpse of Ronan the Accuser, Nebula, and a new look at The Collector, and everything is just as bizarre and badass and perfect as I was hoping for.
I can’t wait for August 1st, when this one hits theaters.
And here are some screen shots from the trailer:
