Marvel looks to add to their list of hits (Iron Man, Thor, Captain America) with their latest big screen comic adaptation for Guardians of the Galaxy. This new extended trailer introduces audiences to the cast of unlikely misfits turned heroes whom decide to take it upon themselves to save the galaxy.

When asked why main character, Peter Quill (Star Lord), is willing to risk his life to save others he responds, “Because right now… life’s giving us a chance to do something good, something bad, a bit of both”. Quill is joined by an interesting team of characters, that includes: Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid that can only say his name; Gamora, the deadly femme fatale; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer.

Guardians of the Galaxy is scheduled to land in theaters on August 1.
