You have no idea what the universe has in store for you…

The past trailers for “Guardians of the Galaxy” have done a good job at teasing Marvel’s upcoming space adventure with a star-studded cast, humor galore and one catchy tune (“Hooked on a Feeling” by Blue Swede). But in this new trailer they kicked it up to full blown action and a butt load of riveting new footage… with a few jokes thrown in for good measure.

The trailer uncovers more of our lead’s past and where this batch of unlikely superheroes originated — Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) was only a boy when he left Earth and headed to the farthest reaches of the galaxy, where he would eventually become the thief known as Star-Lord. Of course, when destiny decides to throw him a curveball and place him in possession of an orb so powerful that some of the darkest forces in the galaxy would do anything to get their hands on it, he steps up to the plate to lead an assassin (Gamora), a maniac (Drax The Destroyer), a foulmouthed raccoon (Rocket Raccoon) and a tree-like alien with a limited vocabulary (Groot) to defend the universe.

If this ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ trailer doesn’t get your blood boiling with excitement, perhaps its, hard to ignore cast will. Aside from Chris Pratt, we’ve also got Zoe Saldana, WWE star Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and even Josh Brolin.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” hits cinemas August.
