Last night the first Guardians of the Galaxy TV spot hit the air during Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (You gotta love that Disney synergy machine.) It features footage from the film and some behind the scenes action, as well as Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige explaining where it fits in the Marvel Universe and the main cast — Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel — talking about what makes it different. My favorite part is about 40 seconds in, when director James Gunn does a really big head nod at Diesel. I could watch that all day.
Guardians of the Galaxy makes it way into theaters on August 1. Here's the synopsis:
Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” finds space adventurer Peter Quill the object of a bounty hunt after stealing an orb coveted by a treacherous villain, but when Quill discovers the power it holds, he must find a way to rally the quartet of ragtag rivals hot on his trail to save the universe.
