Marvel-in-Space: Outrageous First Trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy

"What a bunch of a-holes."
The last line from the first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy pretty much sums up the direction that director James Gunn (Super) took with Marvel's latest, most unlikely, superheroes. And we love it! How else could a irreverent anti-hero call himself "Star-Lord" in the company of numerous alien lifeforms if not with his tongue planted firmly in cheek and his middle finger in the air? Incredible FX, cool aliens, a little furry critter, Zoe Saldana in green instead of blue — it's got everything a sci-fi fan could want from a superhero movie set in space.
Here's the official synopsis:
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 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 Peter 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.
