The first trailer from Marvel's next superhero movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, has arrived and I have to say it looks way better than I could have imagined.

It seems like the risk Marvel is taking by creating a movie based on heroes who the public are not that familiar with may just pay off. The blend of comedy and action will surely work well together.

With a cast featuring Chris Pratt (Parks and Rec.), Zoe Saldana (Star Trek), Vin Diesel (Fast and Furious), Bradley Cooper (The Hangover) and Dave Bautista it looks like it will be worth watching.

Plus the trailer shows one of my favorite actors John C. Reilly as some kind of space cop, so that should be cool.

The movie is scheduled to be released on August 1.
