Still trying to figure out just who all the main characters are in Guardians of the Galaxy? The one-minute TV spot that ran this evening during the MLB All-Star Game has you covered, at least with respect to a couple of the more unusual ones. The spot lines up character info for Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Drax (Dave Bautista), and throws out some new footage. There are a couple of good jokes, too. Watch the new Guardians of the Galaxy TV spot below, and for anyone who wondered how Dave Bautista was going to fare in the film, this could be the spot that really sells the concept of him as Drax.
Guardians of the Galaxy, from director James Gunn, opens on August 1.
An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand–with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
