“Guardians of the Galaxy” is ramping up the roll-out for its big-screen debut, which is just a little over a month away.

Fresh off this week’s release of four character posters from the Marvel cosmic adventure film, a new international trailer is out.

Like the domestic trailer, the clip does a good job of setting the stakes for the motley crew. As Glenn Close — playing intergalactic police chief Nova-Prime — puts it, “the fate of 12 billion people are in the hands of a thief, two thugs, a murderer and a maniac.”

The international trailer also features dialogue from Zoe Saldana’s green alien assassin Gamora, who asks Chris Pratt’s roguish antihero Peter Quill, “Why would you risk your life for this?”

Check it out below.

Due to open in theaters Aug. 1, “Guardians” follows Quill, who’s on the run from a villain known as Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) after coming into possession of a mysterious orb. Before long, Quill is allied with a rogues gallery that, in addition to Gamora, includes a gun-toting creature named Rocket Raccoon, voiced by Bradley Cooper; Bautista’s vengeful Drax the Destroyer; and the tree-like humanoid Groot, voiced by Vin Diesel.

In addition to the five guardians who make up the squad of misfits, the “Guardians of the Galaxy” cast also features Michael Rooker as Yondu, Djimon Hounsou as Korath, Benicio del Toro as the Collector, Karen Gillan as the sadistic villain Nebula, John C. Reilly as  Rhomann Dey, and the recently announced Josh Brolin as Thanos, the death-loving supervillain first glimpsed in the credit sequence of Joss Whedon’s 2012 blockbuster “The Avengers.”

The first team bearing the name debuted in “Marvel Super-Heroes” No. 18 in 1969, and had an ongoing series in the early 1990s, but the film’s lineup is rooted in a 2008 “Guardians of the Galaxy” series written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. For the new movie, director and co-writer James Gunn took a fresh approach to the characters and the mythology, fashioning a story that, like the other Marvel films, stands on its own but also connects to the studio’s other franchises, including “The Avengers.”
