Movie Trailer: Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)


Well, it’s good to see, the trailer for Marvel’s latest offering, Guardians of the Galaxy, doesn’t follow the standard formula for action trailers. Instead of inundating the screen with explosion after explosion, the five so-called “Guardians” — Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer — are introduced by their rap sheets with comic flair. It rightfully sets the tone for the upcoming movie, but for those looking for something more substantial (especially after the teased anticipation) will have to wait for following trailers. Watch the first taste now, I believe you’ll be “hooked on a feeling.”

Guardians of the Galaxy stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Benicio Del Toro, John C. Reilly, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan and employs the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel.

Official Synopsis:
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.

Guardians of the Galaxy saves the universe from the comfort of US and UK theaters on August 1, 2014.

    Good to see that even with a premise as out-there as this, Marvel will always find a way to fit it into its bland, homogenized aesthetic.

      Please go on…

      There is nothing bland,homogenized or pasturized about Marvel. If you were talking DC, I’d say you were onto something…

    It’s going to be Antman or Guardians of the Galaxy that starts the demise of Marvel.

      I imagine any movie not tied to the Avengers or X-Men universe is going to do poorly.

        I’m late to the party with this, but just to confirm – this movie takes place in a universe all its own, not connected to any of the existing Marvel Studios universes?

          GOTG will connect to the rest of the Marvel universe. The alien Thanos is the common thread.

      Marvel would need several major fuck-ups before they crumble and fall. But, considering they have a core of talented people and stable of beloved heroes, that scenario is highly unlikely to happen.

    I can’t say one way or another whether this will be good but its already off to a bad start with what may be the laziest trailer for a summer blockbuster I’ve ever seen…

    WTF was Marvel thinking with this? All the hype and this is what we get? And to think I stayed up late to see it debut on Kimmel.

    “What a bunch of a-holes.”

    Misfits saving the universe – finally heroes I can relate too. I’m definitely going to watch this.

    Well it’s finally here and I’m not so impressed. I’m having trouble seeing Chris Pratt as anything other than a village idiot. John C. Reilly seemed out of place too.

    I like what I see so far even without knowing what or who their fighting. Anxious to hear how Rocket Raccoon sounds, I’m envisioning something high-pitched.

    It’s a fresh take on a beaten down genre. I hope it turns out good so more can follow.

    Move aside Avengers. The Guardians have arrived.
