MTV just released the first clip from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy! Check it out!

Those familiar with the first trailer will recognize our protagonist, Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) pulling some Indiana Jones-level high jinks in what appears to be an ancient alien temple when he's busted by a Kree bounty hunter/ mercenary played by Djimon Hounsou. What we didn't see in that trailer, is what happens after he drops the mysterious orb he stole. Check it out! Heck! You should've already checked it out! What are you doing?! Watch it again!

Big thanks to MTV for releasing this first look at Marvel's upcoming

Guardians of the Galaxy


"We made The Winter Soldier, 'nuff said."
"We made The Winter Soldier, 'nuff said."

My Take:

I made no efforts to hide how immeasurable my anticipation for Captain America: The Winter Soldier was after Marvel announced it; especially after hearing it was Marvel's best script yet. That is, with the exception of one script:

Guardians of the Galaxy.

I've always been a fan of director James Gunn's off-kilter humor and subversive style and giving him free reigns to Marvel's galactic adventures has me giddy as a fan boy. I couldn't wait to see Cap's newest outing, but that doesn't hold a candle to how excited I am to see this "Firefly meets Indiana Jones" space opera sporting Marvel's most colorful cast yet. This clip, which shows we'll be getting plenty of quirky humor and stylish action, has done nothing to sway that confidence.

Drop a comment below and let me know what you caught in the clip or your take on the upcoming film!

Guardians of the Galaxy opens in wide release in the US on August 1, 2014. Somebody freeze me till then.
