“So here we are,” says Chris Pratt’s Starlord in the new trailer from Marvel Studios, “a thief, two thugs, an assassin, and a maniac.”

They may be an odd team, but they’re not going to stand by as evil wipes out the galaxy.

Guardians of the Galaxy is shaping up to be a fantastic take on the cult-hit comic book series, further cementing Marvel Comics as the cooler-than-you comic book movie studio with this hot new trailer, embedded below.

In addition to Pratt, the movie has an all-star cast, including Zoe Saldana as alien orphan Gamora, and WWE champion Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer. Vin Diesel provides the voice and motion capture as Groot, a tree-like alien who hangs out with raccoon-like alien Rocket, voiced by Bradley Cooper. Other roles go to Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Honsou, John C. Reilly, Glen Close, and Benicio del Toro, to name a few of the high-powered cast.

This isn’t some low-budget B-movie folks; with an estimated budget of $150 million, this has the makings of a cult classic with all the trimmings, and then some.

Enjoy the trailer above while you wait for the release of the movie on August 1, 2014.
