Star-Lord rockets away from Korath the Pursuer in 1st Guardians of the Galaxy clip

The very first cool clip from Guardians of the Galaxy  features only a few seconds of new footage ... but they're spectacular.

The one-minute clip — courtesy of MTV's Movie Awards Takeover — is an extended version of the scene from the movie's trailer in which Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), meets Korath the Pursuer (Djimon Hounsou).

Though there's only a brief taste of brand-new footage, what’s really awesome about the added scenes is seeing Star-Lord rocket his way out of a tight situation and seeing him doing one of his crazy wild jumps. Really, really cool stuff.

Have a look:

Directed by James Gunn, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is slated to open on Aug. 1.
