Marvel Studios have released the second full trailer for their upcoming science-fiction superhero blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy. Set in the aftermath of the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the fourth chapter in Phase Two of the Avengers franchise stars Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon and (how could we possibly forget?) Vin Diesel as the silent-yet-charming tree warrior Groot.
True to form, this exemplary theatrical preview integrates another classic 1980s tune into its soundtrack, this time taking the form of Norman Greenbaum's immortal "Spirit in the Sky", showcasing the motion picture's bombastic and refreshingly eccentric character ensemble and action set-pieces all the while. Ant-Man may have lost its director just a month or so before it entered production, but Guardians' James Gunn evidently isn't going anywhere, and thank goodness, since this oh-so-promising production is shaping up to be one of our most anticipated film releases of the Summer. Now if you'll excuse us, we're going to stick Bjorn Skifs' "Hooked on a Feeling" on a loop again for the next few hours...
Guardians of the Galaxy materializes in UK cinemas nationwide this July 31st.
