'Guardians of the Galaxy' Trailer: 5 Things We're Excited About!

“Guardians of the Galaxy” debuted the first official trailer on Tuesday night and blasted the Marvel Universe into the cosmos!

AccessHollywood.com takes a look at five moments from the trailer that has us counting the days until its August debut:

Marvel’s First Space-Set Film!: Minus some other worldly moments from “Thor,” the comic book movie world has officially launched into outer space with Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax and Vin Diesel as Groot – with plenty of high-flying action and hopefully some epic space battles!

Groot & Rocket Raccoon: The Big Screen’s Next Favorite Duo?: Will Bradley (as a gun-toting talking raccoon) and Vin (as a massive alien walking tree) be film’s next R2-D2 and C-3PO (but with more ammo and explosives)?

It Might Be Space, But There Is Plenty Of Skin: Star-Lord and Gamora show off plenty of skin in the trailer, which should keep audiences (and fanboys) enticed!

The Collector!: Benicio Del Toro as The Collector, a.k.a. Taneleer Tivan (who we first saw in the post-credits of “Thor: Dark World), is back and possibly up to something not-so-virtuous. Who or what will he be collecting this time around – and will they want to be part of his collection?

Aliens, Aliens & More Aliens: “Guardians” has opened the flood gates of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a slew of appearances by charters fans already know about, the Nova Corps played by John C. Reilly and Peter Serafinowicz, plus armies of other characters we’re excited to see!
