The trailer for Guardians Of The Galaxy lands in the next 24 hours. And here are three new promo images from the film...

The first trailer for Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy is imminent, although it seems there's been a slight change of plan as to when to expect it. Originally, it was supposed to drop yesterday, but it'll now premiere on the Jimmy Kimmel show in the US tonight. The show is set for 11.35pm EST, which equates to 4.35 in the morning tomorrow in the UK.

Ahead of the trailer debut, a trio of images has been released, which we've got for you here. And over at USA Today, it's got an outline as to what to expect from the story. Obviously if you want to avoid knowing much about the film before you go in, it's best not to read the next two paragraphs...

"The movie teams five disparate personalities: Peter Quill (Pratt), aka Star-Lord, was taken from Earth as a 9-year-old, possesses a mysterious orb artifact and pilots the Milano, a muscle car of a spaceship. Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is connected to Thanos, arguably the cosmos' biggest baddie. Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) is a muscular dude you don't want to upset. And then there are the aliens Rocket Raccoon and Groot (computer-generated characters voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, respectively), who are best pals and potentially the biggest things to happen to pop culture since Chewbacca.

Their stories converge in the space prison Kyln. After the characters break out, they venture to Knowhere (the severed head of a celestial being that serves as a hangout for aliens) and visit the weird menagerie of the Collector (Benicio Del Toro). They also have to avoid two villains, Ronan (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), who are in hot pursuit of Quill's orb, which has the power to destroy the galaxy".

Here then are those pictures. And Guardians Of The Galaxy will be in cinemas on August 1st.
