Earlier this week, the highly anticipated second trailer for James Gunn’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ premiered after a lively Facebook Q&A session with the director and stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, and Vin Diesel. The latest look at the upcoming Phase Two film featured the first time we heard Diesel’s Groot speak his famous line, “I am Groot,” as well as Bradley Cooper’s first lines as Rocket Raccoon. Just like the first trailer, the second one left fans more excited to check out the only original property in this phase of Marvel Studios’ slate of films. But now, the international version of the trailer has dropped and it has a little something extra.

When I say little, I mostly mean that this new trailer is shorter, but there are flashes of new footage from the movie in it. This Russian trailer lasts for only one minute and thirty-seven seconds, but it certainly does the trick. You can check it below, followed by the film’s synopsis:

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.
