Marvel Unveils First ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Trailer
The first trailer to Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight and it surely is…different. Marvel teases an epic science fiction adventure in the first few seconds in the trailer. We see Star-Lord (played by Chris Pratt) carefully grabbing some sort of artifact, but he is soon caught red-handed. The tone quickly shifts from futuristic Indiana Jones to that of a comedy. It reaches another level when Hooked on a Feeling is playing. Yes…you read that correctly. The trailer’s main song is Hooked on a Feeling, and I can’t think of anything cooler than seeing Rocket Raccoon shooting a gun as it is played. This trailer will receive mixed reactions Marvel Cinematic Universe fans because of how disparate Guardians of the Galaxy seems compared to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but I am definitely looking forward to it. I don’t mind some sarcasm and wit to go with my sci-fi action. I welcome a Marvel film to diverge from the commonplace superhero genre. What do you guys think?
