There's just over a month to go now before we finally get to see the latest fruits of Marvel Studios' labours, in the shape of James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy film.
The latest in the line of Marvel comics adapted for that big screen, “Guardians of the Galaxy” follows an odd number of heroes as they fight to save the world.
While the new trailer doesn’t add much detail of the movie’s plot, it certainly sets up the seemingly unlikely team – the Guardians of the Galaxy – as well as their great responsibility, with all of the action and adventure that can be expected from the superhero pic.
There are summer event movies, after which there’s “Guardians Of The Galaxy,” which within the light of the drama around “Ant-Man,” might be one of the few times we’ll see Marvel really take a costly risky gamble. But at the same time, this is a smart studio discussion how to sell the impossible, so that as we get closer to the release of the film, it’s looking increasingly more like a sure thing.
A new international trailer has dropped for the space bound superhero flick and Marvel is constantly on the push the epic scope of the blockbuster. From Peter Quill’s humble Earth beginnings to his encounters with all of sorts of fantastical creatures and people beyond the stars, gone is the smirk in the earlier part of the marketing campaign. Instead, we get to understand the stakes, which just is actually the fate of our entire planet of 12 billion people. “If we do not protect the galaxy, who will?” our hero says, leading his team which includes a tree, a raccoon and a green skinned alien.
The new trailer also gives Zoe Saldana’s Gamora her first opportunity to be heard (yes, somehow we heard a talking raccoon and tree man before the female lead of the movie) and again plays on the villains of the piece, beyond some more foreboding silent appearances by Ronan (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillen).
For those concerned about the prospect of an entirely serious Guardians trailer, don’t worry: By the time you get to the end, the interaction between Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Quill offers some comedy to embellish an unusually grim consider the movie, which opens in the U.S. Aug.
