“I am Groot”
He said it, he actually said it. You may not realize it, but Guardians of the Galaxy is the most ambitious superhero movie coming out (not counting The Avengers). The cast of characters read like a mad gab game including gun toting raccoon, talking tree body guard, and green space assassin.
Further proof that Marvel studios have a pretty good handle on their marketing machine, Guardians is one of the most anticipated movies this summer, but if you asked pretty much anyone outside of pure nerd culture who they were I’m sure you’d see plenty of confused faces. That’s why the first trailer spent its run time introducing all of the main characters. The latest trailer is mostly plot and sizzle, which works in the movies favor. It leaves just enough mystery that keeps the movie intriguing.
I especially like the little touches in the trailer, like the use of 70’s and 80’s music. I won’t spoil it here, but it’s a Star Lord thing. Anyway, I can’t wait to see Guardians of the Galaxy; a pure sci-fi, action flick that takes place entirely in space. For the uninitiated that are concerned about seeing it because they don’t know who they are, don’t worry. That used to be one of the best parts of going to the movies, and Guardians is bringing a little bit of that back.
