Tuesday (Feb. 18) is a big day for Guardians of the Galaxy. The first trailer for the movie will premiere on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but before that Marvel has released a 15-second teaser that is very revealing.
Outside of the footage shown at Comic-Con and a few photos that have popped up online, not much of Guardians of the Galaxy has been seen. That has changed now, though. In addition to seeing some familiar imagery from the latest round of stills, the teaser also offers the first clear look at several characters.
Fans can see what, exactly, Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Groot (Vin Diesel) look like in the movie. There’s also a shot of Chris Pratt and those abs he worked so hard for, if that’s more your speed.
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.
