If you've already seen the first trailer for Guardians Of The Galaxy, you will have seen most of this clip already, since it features Chris Pratt as human scoundrel Peter Quill (trying to establish himself as renegade mercenary Star-Lord) being interrupted while nabbing a strange, seemingly powerful orb by Djimon Hounsou's Korath The Pursuer. What follows is then a quick-cut montage drawn from the rest of the trailer, introducing us to the other Guardians, including deadly green-skinned assassin Gamora (Zoe Saldana), hulking warrior Drax The Destroyer (Dave Bautista), talking tree Groot (Vin Diesel) and gruff warrior Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), who must save the galaxy from numerous threats.
Director James Gunn has also posted a new picture of the main characters in their prison attire, and make sure you keep an eye on his Twitter feed for other behind-the-scenes pics from the shoot, even as he finishes up some small additional shoot days.
We're keeping our fingers crossed for this one, while keeping our faith in Marvel's ability to marry compelling concepts with good movies. Guardians Of The Galaxy hits UK cinemas on 1 August.
