New 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Extended TV Spot

More cool tunage ("Cherry Bomb!"), more footage, more Rocket Racoon, a little more Nebula than usual and lots more Glenn Close. It's the new extended TV spot for Marvel's James Gunn-wirtten/directed super awesomeness that's "Guardians of the Galaxy!"

The film is out on August 1 and stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Benicio del Toro. By the way, IMDB has added Nathan Fillion to the cast but there's no character mentioned (even though when a fan tried to finagle the scoop out of him at the "Firefly" panel this past weekend at Wizard World Philadelphia, he adamantly denied that he'd be partaking in the film). Despite denying the rumors, James Gunn confirmed a small Fillion cameo in GotG. Speculation is rampant as to what or whom he'll actually be playing, so we'll just have to wait and see!

Here's a synopsis and then you can check out the new video:

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.
