A new 60-second spot for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy is now online, and it features just about everything you could ask for from the property. Plenty of action shots from Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and Dave Bautista? Check. Bradley Cooper channeling his inner raccoon? Check. Vin Diesel voicing Groot with his one-and-only line? Check! There’s also a good deal of new footage to go along with an unnamed evil (ie Thanos) who is threatening billions of innocent lives. If I don’t see another frame of footage between now and opening day, I’d still be sold on this one.
If you missed yesterday’s new TV spot, or Gunn talking about varying the aspect ratio’s in the film’s IMAX 3D cut, check them out now. Also starring Benicio Del Toro, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Peter Serafinowicz, Michael Rooker, and Glenn Close, the film opens in 3D on August 1st. Hit the jump to watch the new Guardians of the Galaxy TV spot.

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.
