Marvel really wants you to know all about the title characters in Guardians of the Galaxy before you ever set foot in the movie theater. Two new TV spots for the James Gunn-directed action film were released today which shed light on the origins of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), and Drax (Dave Bautista). While there are also quite a few tidbits of new footage, dialogue, and humor, it’s starting to feel like they’re trying too hard. You’ve convinced me! Now please let me enjoy some of the remaining footage during the actual movie.
Also starring Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Glenn Close, Benicio Del Toro, Djimon Hounsou, Michael Rooker, John C. Reilly, Peter Serafinowicz, and the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, Guardians of the Galaxy opens in 3D on August 1st. Hit the jump to check out the two new TV spots.
