Marvel releases Extended Guardians of the Galaxy trailer ahead of premiere

If you missed the preview of the film, Marvel held a special event showing 17-minutes of the highly-anticipated installment to the Marvel Universe in IMAX theaters, you can still watch the extended trailer that was made for fans and uploaded today. No spoilers to worry about in this clip, unless you didn’t know that Rocket Raccoon was a complete bada@#.
 
The film is set to premiere in just a few short weeks, with Peter Quill at the center of the action-packed blockbuster, as he is hunted down 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 Quill 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.
