With James Gunn's (Super) mad space opera Guardians Of The Galaxy now just a few weeks away, the publicity blitz is really stepping up. Walt Disney Pictures and Marvel have already screened 17 minutes of footage in the US (with the same presentation due in the UK), and now we have their latest extended trailer featuring some new clips of the unlikely heroes. Well, we say heroes...
The film finds American pilot Peter Quill, also known as Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), the object of a manhunt after stealing a mysterious stolen McGuffin orb coveted by the villainous Ronan (Lee Pace).
Whilst in a prison, he meets an unusual suspects line-up of aliens 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.
With Benicio Del Toro (Savages), Karen Gillan (Doctor Who), Peter Serafinowicz (Saun Of The Dead), Ophelia Lovibond (Mr. Popper's Penguins), Gregg Henry (Slither), Laura Haddock (Da Vinci's Demons), Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond), Michael Rooker (Super) and Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs) rounding out the cast, Guardians Of The Galaxy arrives in the UK on the 31 July and the US on 1 August.
