Guardians of the Galaxy GOTG: 3 New Images Today, Trailer Tomorrow! written by Sean Gerber February 17, 2014 The time has finally come for Marvel to initiate the marketing countdown to the August 1st launch of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY! Star-Lord himself, Chris Pratt, will unveil the trailer for the movie on JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! tomorrow night. In advance, USA Today has an introductory article on Marvel’s first new franchise film since 2011, along with three new images. The article does not give away much, but it does confirm previous hints dropped by Pratt and director James Gunn in that the Guardians start out as unacquainted, usual suspects on the wrong side of intergalactic law. They will obviously band together for the common good, eventually. Along the way, they will even journey to Knowhere, the severed head of a celestial being that will host a great number of alien species. Fans of the comics will happily recognize Knowhere as an important venue for cosmic diplomacy and team’s home in the Dan Abnett/Andy Lanning run upon which much of the story is based. We’ll be back tomorrow night with full coverage of the trailer and a podcast to follow soon after.
