With Captain America: The Winter Soldier now in theaters, Marvel is free to focus on their next big movie – Guardians of the Galaxy. MTV has debuted the first official clip for the superhero film, featuring Chris Pratt‘s Star Lord. Check it out below.

In the clip, Peter tQuill, aka Star-Lord, attempts an Indiana Jones-like mission, but gets busted by “some sort of interstellar peace officers.” We saw some of this footage in the trailer, which debuted by in February, but it’s still pretty exciting. The clip also has that sarcastic humor from the trailer, and there’s even some extra random footage at the end. Check it out:

So you see, it’s not much, but Marvel will soon start rolling out all kinds of new footage that you’ll be begging for them to stop. Below is a synopsis of the movie:

An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand—with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.

Directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio del Toro, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Gregg Henry, Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel. Guardians of the Galaxy opens in the US on August 1, 2014.
