MTV premiered the footage as part of their week-long "takeover" in anticipation of the 2014 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, April 13. The new clip features Pratt as the character Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord, who acts as leader to the Guardians.
The preview highlights the movie's mix of action and comedy as Quill attempts to pull an Infinity Stone from its pedestal in a cavern. The villain Korath (Djimon Hounsou) interrupts him as he takes the orb, but Quill is able to escape with the help of his rocket-booster boots.
Guardians of the Galaxy is based on the Marvel comic of the same name, and features four other superheroes in addition to Quill. Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is a green-skinned woman with superhuman strength and accelerated healing abilities, Dax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) is a powerful warrior who seeks revenge, and Groot (Vin Diesel) is a tree-like creature and sidekick to Rocket (Bradley Cooper), a genetically-engineered raccoon marksman.
