The new trailer for James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy is nothing like the first. It’s much more serious and informative, but more importantly, it’s 100% better. If you weren’t all that excited about this superhero movie, then this new trailer might do the trick. Watch it below.

The new clip offers tons of new footage as well as a different tone. It’s more hopeful and filling. It actually lets us in on the story. There’s footage of a young Star Lord as he’s being taken from Earth, and we get to hear a lot from Bradley Cooper, who voices Rocket Raccoon. We also get to see some new faces (hello Glenn Close!) and even Groot gets in a few words. It’s a much better, and more exciting trailer. Check it out:

Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, as well as the voices of Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon and Vin Diesel as a large tree named Groot. The comedy-action film is based on the 2008 comics, and also stars Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio del Toro, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Gregg Henry. It’s out August 1, 2014.
