Trailer Reaction: Guardians of the Galaxy

Well here it is – the trailer for Marvel’s latest and riskiest film since they started out with the first Iron Man movie.  I have to say, despite being unfamiliar with Guardians of the Galaxy…I’m definitely interested in seeing this.  I love the style of the teaser trailer – it’s like The Usual Suspects (minus Keyser Soze) meets Firefly with a touch of Star Wars and it lives up to Marvel’s sense of good fun story-telling.

The best bits!

LOL  In the above image he’s doing his best Han Solo flying a spaceship impression.  Going out on a limb here but judging from the trailer, everyone will know who Star-Lord is by the end of the movie!

As mentioned before, it is a risk.  it’s certainly not a film that automatically leaps out like a new Iron Man, Thor or Captain America film.  But after the success of those films alongside The Avengers, Marvel is carving out a decent movie universe and it will be interested to see how Guardians of the Galaxy fits in.  Plus, it’s nice to see a trailer that doesn’t spoil the plot!

I’ll be keeping an eye out on this one.
