The official count down can now begin. Just hours after a teaser video was released online, Jimmy Kimmel debuted the first official trailer for Marvel’s forthcoming film, Guardians of the Galaxy.
During Tuesday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the talkshow host gave what comic fans have been waiting so long for. In the two minute and thirty second trailer, we meet Peter Quill, played by Chris Pratt, green skinned assassin Gamora played by Zoe Saldana, Rocket Raccoon and Rocket’s plant like buddy, Groot, voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.
While many say the movie, which was first viewed at Comic-Con last July, is a tad risky for Marvel, director James Gunn says otherwise. “I don’t think it’s the riskiest Marvel property,” he told Total Film. “I think Iron Man was by far the riskiest. It was a film company that didn’t have much, raising money to make a film based on a property that wasn’t that much more well known than Guardians of the Galaxy. So I think it’s not even close to the riskiest Marvel property.”
By the looks of the trailer, the action film appears to be more comical than anything, with of course some great eye candy. Chris Pratt’s abs? Yes please. Zoe Saldana showing off her sexy green face? Yes please. Just the idea of hearing Vin and Bradley’s voices? Umm, yes please.
Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters August 1, 2014.
