Yes, that's right! The moment any and every truly committed Marvel Studios fan has been eagerly anticipating for what feels like an eternity! The Guardians of the Galaxy trailer release date was leaked today, following reports from the MPAA (the company in charge of official Movie and Trailer Ratings) had approved a trailer that is 2:23 long, and they had permitted it to be viewed by all audiences, and that the trailer would be viewable "soon".
Soon was a lot closer than most people realized, however, as it is practically at fingertip's reach. According to one of Yahoo's official Twitter accounts, the trailer will debut February 18th, 2014. Moviepilot.com's own Alisha Grauso recently did some amazing cover articles on each of the Guardians that will so soon be some of the most loved Marvel characters of our time, along with Iron Man, Captain America, and the rest of Avengers crew.
The Guardian members include Drax the Destroyer, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, and Star-Lord Peter Quill.
This year at Comic-Con in San Fransisco, the cast was brought in to Marvel's Comic-Con audience mid-shooting of the movie to present a rough trailer that had been recorded mere days before they showed it on their presentation screens in San Fransisco. Will footage from this first preview be featured in the trailer? All we know is that inside sources say the trailer is very impressive.
MovieWeb also released a short preview of the trailer as a small little teaser for all of us fans. I am dying of a thirst to see the rest of this trailer! At least Rocket Raccoon and Groot seem to be good friends like they were in the comics! Click here to see it! (it's not the official movie graphics, but that is a scene)
[EDIT] The video has had a copyright claim and has been taken down, but I did manage to screenshot these two parts of the 10 second clip which basically sums up everything that happened in the tiny little preview anyways:
