The hype for Guardians of the Galaxy doesn't look like it'll be slowing down anytime before the August 1 release. With a 17 minute IMAX preview in select theaters, and a new extended international trailer, it's clear Marvel is backing up the galactic gang all the way.
Earlier this week lucky Marvel fans across the country were treated to a 17 minute preview of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy in 150 theaters nation wide. Though I was not one of them (and I say this without an ounce of bitterness) the viewing got mostly accolades and positive feedback, with a few puzzled responses as well. It’s a rather bold move on Marvel’s part, considering the sole fact that most movie goers aren’t familiar with the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.
The new Guardians of the Galaxy trailer definitely gives us more, and when I say more, I mean more Rocket. It’s clear he’s the Tony Stark of this franchise, packed with multiple shoot-out scenes, and an endless arsenal of quippy one-liners. Additionally we see more of Nebula-on-Gamora action, the Nova Corps, Ronan the Accuser and some good ol’ fashioned Groot humor – which of course encompasses all of three words. This may be the most plot revealing trailer yet, and we certainly have no complaints. The overall vibe from the trailer is a culmination of fun humor, high-octane energy and a curiosity that compels you to be interested in this misfit group.
In short, we fans can’t wait till the August 1 premiere. And since we know you can’t get enough of Rocket Raccoon and the gang, check out the latest images Marvel released online.
