Considering that ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy‘ is fairly obscure as a comic book, Marvel is really pushing the movie adaptation.  They aired a five minute promotional video on Sunday night on the USA network, which spotlighted each character and showed clips from the jailbreak sequence from the film.

Check it out below:

Obviously, there are quite a few Easter Eggs planted, mostly in regard to Gamora (Zoe Saldana), who is revealed to be the adopted daughter of Thanos, the big baddie displayed at the end of ‘The Avengers‘.  She’s also referred to as the sister of Nebula, the villain played by Karen Gillan in the film, who has been set up as Gamora’s archenemy.

Other than that, we get an explanation as to why Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) can’t say more than three words and the revelation that Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) doesn’t know what a raccoon is.

Still haven’t gotten enough of ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’?  Tune into ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ tonight, as the entire cast is dropping by and will unveil even more new footage.  (Which we should be sharing once it’s aired.)

James Gunn’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ opens on August 1st, 2014.
