Hands down one of the most anticipated films of the year is Guardians of the Galaxy. I still get a bunch of people asking me who they are, and what they’re all about; but no one can deny that the movie looks amazing. I’ve been a huge fan of James Gunn since his Troma days, and to see him take on a big budget comic film is a geek’s dream come true!

The newest international trailer offers up a bit of new footage involving the rag-tag group of misfits, and mostly more Rocket. He’s sure to be stealing the show and Bradley Cooper’s voice is a good fit for the character. Check it out!

My official thoughts on this as being the best trailer for the movie so far. More about Star Lord, more Rocket, and a bunch of action; this will be the hit of the Summer.

Here’s the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy:

[box_light]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 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 Peter 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” is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.[/box_light]
