New 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Trailer Shows Off The Villain

Marvel released a new international trailer for “Guardians of the Galaxy” and it finally gives us a much better idea of what to expect from Marvel’s next big film.

Every teaser and trailer up to this point has highlighted the comedic aspects of the movie between a hodgepodge group of unlikely heroes: Peter Quill/Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Groot (Vin Diesel), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), and Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper).

Finally, we’re getting a sense of a more serious undertone to the film along with our first glimpse of the villain, Ronan (Lee Pace).

First check out the trailer:

Here’s Ronan. He’s the son of Thanos, the character we first saw in one of “The Avengers” end-credit scenes.

We get a little more about Peter Quill’s backstory as a child abducted from Earth.

And we get to see more of the ships soaring in space.

There are a lot of new shots of the main characters.
