While audiences felt cheated that Marvel failed to produce a 30-second preview during Super Bowl Sunday, fanboys might actually be getting something bigger in the long run. The Albert Film Ratings Board recently classified the first trailer for the superhero film stating it will be a PG-rated visual and share a running time of 2:23. Anyone familiar with the board website anticipate the trailer to arrive anytime within the next few days or week—most likely during the Sochi Winter Olympics.
Those unfamiliar with the Marvel property can read the film synopsis below.
From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team – the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand – with the galaxy’s fate in the balance. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is presented by Marvel Studios. The film releases August 1, 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
