Well, well, well! We have been patiently waiting for this kind of news for months now. The first trailer for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be in theaters Friday and premieres on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight (Tuesday) at 11:35 ET/PT, with a special intro by star Chris Pratt, USA Today reports.
The movie teams five disparate personalities: Peter Quill (Pratt), aka Star-Lord, was taken from Earth as a 9-year-old, possesses a mysterious orb artifact and pilots the Milano, a muscle car of a spaceship. Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is connected to Thanos, arguably the cosmos’ biggest baddie. Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) is a muscular dude you don’t want to upset. And then there are the aliens Rocket Raccoon and Groot (computer-generated characters voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, respectively), who are best pals and potentially the biggest things to happen to pop culture since Chewbacca.
Their stories converge in the space prison Kyln. After the characters break out, they venture to Knowhere (the severed head of a celestial being that serves as a hangout for aliens) and visit the weird menagerie of the Collector (Benicio Del Toro). They also have to avoid two villains, Ronan (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), who are in hot pursuit of Quill’s orb, which has the power to destroy the galaxy.
Hopefully we’ll finally see Lee’s character tonight. Marvel introduced GOTG action figures few days ago, so now we are no longer clueless about Ronan’s look. His skin is blue (just like we were told in Summer) and his eyes are completely black. No eyebrows in action this time.
Update: 15 seconds trailer teaser is out!
Be sure to tune into ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight to see the full one.
