First teaser trailer for Guardians Of The Galaxy online: watch now

The first trailer for Marvel's epic space opera Guardians Of The Galaxy has landed online.

Starring Chris Pratt as the Star Lord and with Bradley Cooper on hand to voice Rocket Racoon, the film certainly looks to be Marvel's most ambitious movie yet - which is saying something post- Avengers .

Set after the events of Thor: The Dark World , Guardians sees the Star Lord hunted by baddie Ronan (Lee Pace) and forming an uneasy truce with other space rejects.

Those rejects include green-skinned daughter of Thanos, Gomora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) and tree-thing Groot (Vin Diesel).

Check out the trailer below...

Guardians Of The Galaxy opens in the UK on 1 August 2014.
