I really like this.
Instead of Two weeks earlier I'd flashback farther to Peter Quill's childhood/origins

I like quite a few of those ideas but I'd like to introduce a key subplot you've overlooked.

Peter Quill embarks on a space shuttle mission however once outside of earth's atmosphere he's kidnapped by a passing spacecraft only learning later its because he isn't entirely human... wrongly assumed to be hiding on earth in violation of the agreement (founded by the actions of his father) he's imprisoned with a number of others and then promptly escapes with their help.

Drax claims to have been human whose family was killed and he was used for some bizarre science experiment involving organ donations from various species at the whim of some homicidal maniac he later learns is Thanos.

Gamora was imprisoned after killing a member of the Church, its only later they learn she's an agent of Thanos brainwashed to believe she's his daughter...

Rocket Raccoon is a former police officer who was imprisoned after he attempted to discover what happened to his people, he believes he's the only survivor although he later learns this may not be the case,

Groot is the only survivor of a race of plants who drew the ire of Thanos, he and Rocky are good friends,

The ship they absconded with is carrying Adam Warlock in suspension and not only are the Church seeking his return since their leader is an imposter claiming to be the true Adam Warlock but Thanos wants him because of the soul gem he bears and thats not even including the rest of the universe who are aware they have something everybody wants but don't know the full details and then there's Peter's dad... and whoever murdered Peter's mother since the scan would have undoubtedly have reached their attention... however since Peter just lead a prison breakout things are just going to get worse...
