Guardians of the Galaxy trailer and character profiles

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY TRAILER AND CHARACTER PROFILES

Here’s the trailer for Marvel’s Guardian’s of the Galaxy, the first new adaptation the Marvel Cinematic Universe since Captain America: The First Avenger back in 2011. This trailer does exactly what you would like from a property that the general public is not completely familiar with and introduces the concept and characters fairly explicitly.

To compliment that set-up, there are some character profiles to add a little depth. This is smart marketing, introducing a whole new world to general audiences before they pay too much for a ticket.  The trailer combines the new with the familiar with echoes of Indiana Jones and Star Wars all wrapped up with Marvel’s trademark snark ramped up to 11.

Guardians of the Galaxy is released 1 August 2014
