In previous Guardians of the Galaxy trailers, we've learned a few things: Chris Pratt's body will make you want to do laundry on his abs, Zoe Saldana looks good in green and Djimon Hounsou can really freak you out.
But in E! News' exclusive special look from the film, we learn something new—Bradley Cooper's raccoon character is a badass and someone you'd want to be friends with.
The latest clip from the upcoming Marvel flick shows the origin of Peter Quill's (Pratt) uneasy alliance with a group of extraterrestrial misfits who are on the run after stealing a coveted orb, and one of those in the group is Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon (voiced by Cooper) who isn't afraid to get on the front lines but also knows how to crack a joke.
The special look also offers some high energy, action-packed booty-kicking, a glimpse of topless Zoe Saldana (oh la la!) and a chance to see Glenn Close as Nova-Prime and John C. Reilly as Rhomann Dey, leader of the Nova Corps.
The film is directed by James Gunn, who wrote the screenplay with Nicole Perlman, and features an ensemble cast including Pratt, Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, and Benicio Del Toro.
Watch the clip and make sure to join the epic space adventure when Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters on Aug. 1!
