A Ton of New Pictures and an Extended Trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy

On Monday night, 17 minutes of new footage was screened for the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy, and early reactions to the footage are mostly raves. Latino Review said, "GUYS, this works. This works on an adventure film level, a level that Marvel movies haven't really worked on, at least not in this pure an iteration."

 

Giant Freakin Robot was even more enthusiastic: "We'll just give you the good news: what we saw looks outstanding. It's fast-paced, it's funny, the cast is stellar, and the world director James Gunn and his collaborators have created is vivid and exciting enough that I can't wait to see more. Early comparisons have been tossed around to The Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark, and while I'm not ready to say Guardians will be as good as those two, I do feel comfortable guaranteeing Guardians will be one of the best movies of the summer from a pure entertainment standpoint." That's quite a promise.

 

For everyone who didn't make it to the footage screening, Marvel also released another extended trailer:

The theme of this trailer is adequately summed up by the line, "I look around, and you know what I see? A bunch of losers. I mean- people who have lost stuff." The film seems to be trying to portray the titular "superhero" team as a bunch of bumbling idiots who just happen to have a huge responsibility thrust on them. We're supposed to be thinking: if these are our "Guardians," then the Galaxy is in big trouble. Instead of the nearly infallible heroes such as Captain America who have the noblest of intentions, the Guardians are underdogs who are only saving the galaxy because they're some of "the idiot[s] who live in it."
