Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer?

If you believe the hype, then today's the day we'll finally see the trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, due out August 1st.

While we're talking about it, you may also be interested to know that there are already rumors floating around out there about supposed Guardians sequel, due out in 2016 on the same weekend as the supposed Superman/Batman movie.  We know that Marvel has two movies scheduled for 2016, and so I don't know that it would be much of a surprise that Marvel decided to put out a Guardians sequel, but at the same time, the movie looks like a Hell of a departure from some of Marvel's other films.  If they have already scheduled another film, it's only because the first one looks to be amazing.

Anyway, I have no idea what this is, but in the absence of an actual trailer, it's the best we've got.  Supposedly, this is Chris Pratt's favorite scene.  That definitely looks like Star Lord in the mask, but hey...  What do I know?

Finally, if you're curious about the Guardians or just want to read a great comic, let me recommend to you the Dan Abnett/Andy Lanning series from Marvel, circa 2008.  You can get the whole 25-issue run on Comixology right now for $39.99, and while I don't know if I'd call that a bargain, it is a Hell of a lot of great comics.

Cover for GotG #1 (2008).

Stay tuned!  If there's more new later today, I'll let you know.

EDIT: USA Today had a piece about the trailer in today's edition.  The full trailer is gonna premier tonight on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live.  In the meantime, here's the 15-second trailer for the trailer.  Which is still pretty damned cool.

Odds are very good that the full trailer will be tomorrow's blog post.
