GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Extended TV Spot Rocks out to “Cherry Bomb” and Has Plenty of New Footage

     June 26, 2014


The steady stream of Guardians of the Galaxy marketing continues as Marvel has released an extended TV spot for their upcoming sci-fi action film.  The story follows five intergalactic misfits—Peter Quill aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), and Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper)—as they set out to protect a powerful and mysterious orb from the villainous Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace).  This extended TV spot features plenty of fresh footage for a film that looks better and better.  Also, kudos to Marvel for their song selections when it comes to these ads.  Most movies and TV spots just pull from whatever is topping the iTunes chart.  Guardians is playing classic tunes.  They’ve used “Hooked on a Feeling”, “Spirit in the Sky”, and now “Cherry Bomb”.  Well done.

Hit the jump to check out the Guardians of the Galaxy extended TV spot.  The film opens in 3D on August 1st, and also stars Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Benicio Del Toro, Djimon Hounsou, Michael Rooker, John C. Reilly, and Peter Serafinowicz.

Here’s the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy:

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. 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. Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.

    So Matt, have you checked out any of the comics from the 2008 run yet? It will definitely have a completely different story, but that run definitely informs the characters and their personalities a lot. It’s some great crazy stuff and quite a good read. And the artwork is top notch too!
