“Guardians of the Galaxy” is the most anticipated film of the summer, or at least that’s what Marvel wants everyone to believe. To help keep that anticipation palpable, the company has released a teaser for the film’s upcoming trailer.
That’s right. On Friday, Marvel released a 24-second teaser for the full-length trailer’s release on Monday.
Nevertheless, the teaser was jam-packed with plenty of action sequences, and shirtless Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana. Plus, fans even got to hear Pratt’s Star-Lord exchange a couple of lines with Dave Bautista‘s Drax the Destroyer.
The science-fiction epic is a bit of a departure for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s stepping far, far away from The Avengers universe established on Earth to find another group of superheroes in deep space. It also looks like the humor quotient has been ratcheted up for “GotG.”
Hitting theaters on August 1, 2014, “Guardians of the Galaxy” was directed by James Gunn, based on a screenplay by Gunn and Nicole Perlman. The film stars Pratt, Saldana, Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, Lee Pace, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Benicio del Toro, and Glenn Close.
