Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, we got our first glimpse at Guardians of the Galaxy, coming to theaters this August!
This is one of those trailers that you’ll just have to watch again and again — it has that rare combination of levity, action, and comic book legacy that will bring your excitement to a fever pitch. We also a split-second glimpse of Karen Gillan in her head-shaving role as Nebula.
Now that we see that this movie will take an even lighter approach than other Marvel movies have in the past (which is appropriate for the Guardians), it’s easy to see why FBI Agent Burt Macklin was cast as its leading man.
Starring Chris Pratt (Parks and Recreation), Zoe Saldana (Avatar), and Dave Bautista (WWE), with the voices of Vin Diesel (Fast and Furious) and Bradley Cooper (Hangover.)
Guardians of the Galaxy is slated for release on August 1, 2014.
