'Guardians of the Galaxy' Begin Their Mission in New TV Spot

A new TV spot for "" has arrived, giving away some never-before-seen footage including some action sequences. "Our world is facing an unstoppable threat. Send in the Guardians," says who plays the leader of Nova Corps.

The group consists of outlaws like "a thief, two thugs, an assassin, and a maniac." They are 's Peter Quill a.k.a. Star Lord, 's Rocket Raccoon, 's Groot, 's Gamora, and 's Drax the Destroyer.

The film will hit U.S. theaters on August 1. "Just got out of working on the Guardians cut for IMAX 3D and I'm unbelievably excited about it," director James Gunn posted on Facebook. " 'Guardians of the Galaxy' has been planned as a 3D film from its very inception. Yes, if you see the film in 2D, you'll get a full experience. But the 3D experience promises a little something extra."

"Unlike many directors, I've been actively involved with converting every shot to 3D, making sure it works perfectly for the story and the film, making sure it's spectacular and immersive without being silly, distracting, or overly showy. 3D conversion was once far inferior to shooting in 3D, but over the past couple years new technology has allowed us incredible control over the 3D effects, making it equal to or in some cases greater than shooting in 3D."

"As an EXTRA benefit for those who see the film in IMAX 3D, we will be changing aspect ratios throughout the film in a way that makes the experience even fuller and more encompassing. I've personally chosen all the places where the changes occur and, again, I love how it's coming along. The changing aspect ratios in this case are actually a part of the storytelling."
