GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Full Trailer Hooks On a Feeling
What a bunch of a-holes.
Late last night on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, the first full trailer to James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy premiered, giving us a decent two-minutes, thirty seconds look at Marvel Comics' favorite misfits of space.
The trailer opens with Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) pulling an Indiana Jones and sneaking into a temple to retrieve an orb. He's quickly confronted by Korath the Pursuer (Djimon Hounsou), an agent of the Kree Empire. When Korarth asks who the thief is, Quill replies "Star-Lord," which gets a quick "Who?" from Korath. "Star-Lord, man," Quill repeats. "Legendary outlaw? Forget it..."
We then cut to a Nova Corps detention facility, where Rhomann Dey (John C. Reilly) gives another Nova Corps officer (Peter Serafinowicz) a rundown on the arrested Guardians using their rap sheets:
"Drax (Dave Batista)...a.k.a. The Destroyer. Since his wife and family were killed he’s been on a rampage across the galaxy in search of vengeance."
"Gamora (Zoe Saldana)...Soldier, assassin, wanted on over a dozen counts of murder."
"Rocket (Raccoon, voiced by Bradley Cooper)...Wanted on over fifty charges of vehicular theft and escape from lock-up."
"Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel)...He's been traveling recently as Rocket's personal houseplant/muscle."
"Peter Jason Quill...He's also known as 'Star-Lord.'" When asked who calls him that, Dey replies, "Himself, mostly. He's wanted largely on charges of minor assault, public intoxication and fraud." Quill slowly cranks up a middle finger for Dey, triggering an "Obscene Gesture Alert."
The prisoners are brought in to the cells, with one of the guards listening to Quill's old-school Sony Walkman that has the song "Hooked On a Feeling" by Blue Swede. Quill goes to confront the guard, demanding he take the headphones off, but only receives some form of stun baton as a response.
As the "Ooga Chaka" refrain starts playing, we get a series of fleeting images including all sorts of aliens, Quill's ship the Milano, explosions, dogfights, Benicio Del Toro's character The Collector, and our first look at Karen Gillan's character Nebula...
"They call themselves 'The Guardians of the Galaxy,'" continues Dey with a mocking sneer. "What a bunch of a-holes," replies the other Nova Corps officer.
Needless to say, there's a serious Farscape vibe about this...which is a good thing. If you'd like to see the full trailer, you can view it below thanks to Jimmy Kimmel Live's official YouTube account...
Guardians of the Galaxy is scheduled to arrive in theaters on August 1, 2014.
