In addition to 17 minutes of footage debuting during a special IMAX screening, “Guardians of the Galaxy” dropped an extended trailer that’s filled with new footage, including an expanded look at the hilarious “fake laughter” argument between Star-Lord and Rocket.
A lot of the stuff in the new trailer is longer versions of scenes we’ve already previewed, but there were a few teases that might have big implications for the rest of the movie.
First of all, there’s Groot. The trailer have really withheld a lot of the Vin Diesel-voiced character, probably because he only has that one line of dialogue, but he’s shaping up to be pretty hilarious. I love the shot of him nibbling on himself.
Ronan finally speaks! At last, Lee Pace is chatting a bit, and the villain sounds like a real menace. But it’s the glowing purple light on his hammer that has me wondering. Is that the orb (a likely Infinity Stone) everyone is chasing after? I’d wager so.
Here we have our first official look at James Gunn’s buddy Michael Rooker as Yondu, one of the OGs (original Guardians from the comic). You can also see Gunn’s brother, Sean, behind Rooker.
“Guardians of the Galaxy” opens in theaters on August 1.
