Not long now before James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy hits theaters, and the hype is building. I think Marvel’s marketed this difficult film really smart so far, and after seeing last night’s 17 minute IMAX preview, I’m betting this film won’t be like anything we’ve ever seen before – hyperbole warranted. This new internet trailer is more or less the end cap from the IMAX footage, which showed a condensed version of the prison break which brings the team together, and it’s full of new footage, scope and incredible character dynamics. I will say, for a team in which 2 members aren’t even real (I’m attacking about the CG tree and Raccoon), the vibe is spot on.

More stills are available at Marvel, Guardians of the Galaxy opens August 1st – see it in IMAX for specially formatted scenes.
