Update: 15 seconds of the trailer have been leaked by Marvel. Check them out below before watching the whole thing tonight!
I’ll be honest, the Guardians of the Galaxy comic book is not one I’m at all familiar with. But my friends who like it tell me the movie is going to be totally awesome. I am starting to like the character renderings, including this clip from the movie’s first trailer.
Marvel released 15 seconds of the trailer this morning:
If you want to see more of the trailer, you’ll have to tune in to ABC on Tuesday night to watch Jimmy Kimmel Live. Jimmy will present the World Premiere of the trailer for “Guardians of the Galaxy,” with help from the movie’s star Chris Pratt.
After Jimmy Kimmel Live airs, the trailer will be posted for 24 hours exclusively on Jimmy Kimmel Live’s YouTube channel. (and dozens of other channels who will either record it off the TV or just download it from YouTube…)
If you’re like me and need to learn more about Guardians of the Galaxy, the full plot synopsis is below the jump:
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team—the Guardians of the Galaxy. 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.
Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” which first appeared in comic books in Marvel Super-Heroes, Issue #18 (Jan. 1969), stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, featuring Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, with John C.
