‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Trailer Promises Lots of Laughs

If you like your Benicio Del Toro white-haired, your Zoe Saldana deadly, and/or your Karen Gillan bald (and also deadly!), then Guardians of the Galaxy may be the move for you.

Disney gave us the first look of Guardians of the Galaxy on New Year's Day, and now they've released the first official full-length trailer for their latest Marvel adaptation, which offers up audiences a closer look at the cast of ecclectic characters.

Although the trailer begins like any other typical comic book hero's epic, dramatic journey with Chris Pratt's Peter Quill (although he'd prefer that you call him Star-Lord) going in to steal what appears to be a precious object, the mood quickly lightens up when Djimon Hounsou's Korath the Pursuer catches Quill and demands that he let go of the item - which he immediately drops without a fight.

The rest of the trailer gives us proper introductions for the rest of the Guardians - Saldana's assassin Gamora; a machine gun-loving raccoon, appropriately named Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper); Rocket Raccoon's giant house plant and muscle, Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel); and the other muscle in the group, Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista). We're also provided glimpses of Gillan's supervillian Nebula and Del Toro's Collector (who was seen in the clip following Thor: The Dark World credits). Next to John C. Reilly - who lists off the rap sheets for each Guardian in the clip - is Peter Serafinowicz, whom Parks and Recreation fans might recognize as Andy's British BFF Lord Edgar Covington.

Pratt seems to provide most of the laughs, including an awkward scene where he yells at one of his captors who has stolen his headphones - humor that fans of director James Gunn's Super will enjoy.

Glenn Close, Lee Pace, and Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead) are also set to star in the film.

Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters August 1st.
