Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer

The Guardians of the Galaxy trailer is here, and in a word, it is stellar. We are partial to the odd superhero blockbuster here, and we’re not ashamed of that fact, and the latest offering from Marvel is Guardians of the Galaxy, and whilst they aren’t the headline grabbing Avengers, their movie will kick just as much ass, if not more. We aren’t all fan boys, we can’t be expected to know everything about every superhero movie coming out, but we’ll give you the low down here so that you can appreciate this trailer in all its glory and start to get as excited as we are.
So first, why don’t you give the Guardians of the Galaxy film trailer a go…
OK. So that was pretty special right? But what did you just see? Well, here’s what we know so far. Guardians of the Galaxy, directed by James Gunn, focuses on our main man Peter Quill played by Chris Pratt. Quill is being hunted across the galaxy, having stolen a mysterious orb that is also wanted by Ronan, the powerful villain who wants to use the orb to somehow threaten the entire universe. So, orb, good guy, bad guy, universe in peril – nothing new here? In order to escape the bounty hunters and Ronan, Quill teams up with a bunch of mad looking folks including Rocket, a raccoon with guns voiced by Bradley Cooper; Groot, some kind of tree-man combination played by the growler Vin Diesel; Gamora, the self proclaimed ‘deadliest woman in the universe’, played by Zoe Saldana; and Drax the vengeful and bulked up chap played by Dave Bautista (yes, the WWE guy). So, orb, good guy, bad guy, universe in peril and the craziest collection of characters since Who Framed Roger Rabbit. These guys all have to learn to play nice and try and protect / save the universe from Ronan, played by Lee Pace (that Elf), and his evil sidekick Nebula played by Dr Who’s former sidekick Karen Gillian.
Still with us? That’s a lot to wrap you’re head around right there! An awful lot has been said in interviews by the cast members about the kind of crazy movie we should expect. For one, they all think Bradley Cooper as Rocket absolutely steals the show – and how could he not, he is a damned raccoon with guns? That’s like sharks with laser beams! Secondly, there will be an appearance by Thanos. Of course, we don’t need to remind you that Thanos is the main bad ass in the upcoming Avengers sequel. Given how amazingly Marvel manage to intertwine every movie in their Universe, it would be madness not to expect a good tie-in between the two. Whilst we have heard that our Guardians of the Galaxy won’t be appearing in the Avengers sequel, we have taken that with a pinch of salt – we heard that Hugh Jackman wasn’t going to be in X-men: First Class, but there he was, swearing at his for all of 8 seconds…
So, what do you think of the Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer? Is this movie going to be a summer blockbuster of truly epic proportions? We damned will think so, and we intend to see it as soon as humanly possible. Marvel expect it to do well, the Hasbro action figures and Lego are already rolling off the production line (and we do love a good Lego tie-in).
