With ‘Thor: The Dark World’ hitting blu-ray and DVD next week, and ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ being released on April 4, 2014, Marvel Studios is shifting gears, and setting their sights to space. The marketing rollout is about to begin for Marvel’s newest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, starring Chris Pratt, Dave Batista, Zoe Saldana, and the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, as the rag tag group of heroes, out in deep space. Well, tonight, on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’, Marvel Studios will unveil the first trailer of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, which will air on ABC at 11:35/10:35c.
After Jimmy Kimmel Live airs, the trailer will be posted for 24 hours exclusively on Jimmy Kimmel Live’s YouTube channel. You can also see a fifteen second sneak peak below. The film has a great ‘Star Wars’ feel and flow to it, as the trailer shows. This is my most anticipated film of the year, and I’m dying to see it. For a little more on the characters, and the story, USA Today published an article that included this blurb:
The movie teams five disparate personalities: Peter Quill (Pratt), aka Star-Lord, was taken from Earth as a 9-year-old, possesses a mysterious orb artifact and pilots the Milano, a muscle car of a spaceship. Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is connected to Thanos, arguably the cosmos’ biggest baddie. Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) is a muscular dude you don’t want to upset. And then there are the aliens Rocket Raccoon and Groot (computer-generated characters voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, respectively), who are best pals and potentially the biggest things to happen to pop culture since Chewbacca.
Their stories converge in the space prison Kyln. After the characters break out, they venture to Knowhere (the severed head of a celestial being that serves as a hangout for aliens) and visit the weird menagerie of the Collector (Benicio Del Toro). They also have to avoid two villains, Ronan (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), who are in hot pursuit of Quill’s orb, which has the power to destroy the galaxy.
