guardians of the galaxy clip
It was obvious from the outset that "Guardians of the Galaxy" was gonna be a pretty weird entry in the Marvel universe, with its unorthodox casting, indie/genre director, and downright surreal characters.

Even though it sounds crazy on paper, the images and clips for "Guardians of the Galaxy" are encouraging.

This clip shows that even though Chris Pratt is in fighting shape for his role as Star-Lord, he'll never lose his sense of humor. The legendary outlaw is just about to make off with a very special orb when he's stopped by Djimon Hounsou's Korath and other Kree baddies. Luckily, Star-Lord's got a few tricks up his sleeve, including his famous helmet and some crazy rocket-boosted boots that help him escape in the nick of time.

The rest of the clip shows pretty much the same stuff we've seen before -- the other characters like Zoe Saldana's Gamora, Benicio Del Toro's The Collector, and John C. Reilly's Rhomann Dey -- but overall it's a fun little teaser that will sate fans for the time being

"Guardians of the Galaxy" zooms into theaters on August 1.
