The trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy starts off looking like another super-dramatic somewhat serious sci-fi adventure, and then Chris Pratt‘s Peter Quill aka (if only to himself) Star-Lord opens his mouth, claiming his title, only to be questioned as to who that is. Yep, this is not your typical Marvel superhero movie.
With Blue Swede‘s “Hooked on a Feeling” concluding the trailer, that song just confirms the delightful, easy-going tone of the film. Don’t worry, though, it looks like there’s plenty enough cool sci-fi action to be had.
Check out the screencaps from the trailer below:
The movie stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Benicio del Toro as The Collector, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, and Karen Gillan as the bald-headed, black-pupiled Nebula. Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel lend their voices as Rocket the Raccoon and Groot, respectively.
Guardians of the Galaxy comes out in theaters on August 1, 2014.
