Post Guardians of the Galaxy
Hi everyone. I just saw the latest trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptUu7_j0JFE

The trailer gives the impression of a film that combines humour and a light-hearted, irreverent tone with balls-to-the-walls action, with lead Chris Pratt reminding me just a little of Indiana Jones or Han Solo. Could be the sleeper hit of this summer.

Any thoughts, anyone?

This is kinda old news, but I'll still comment on it anyway =). This looks like it has a lot of potential, but to be honest, I'm not really that excited for it. I think my reaction has to do with the fact that there are way too many comic book movies coming out these days, had this come out before the first Iron Man my reaction would have probably been something like, "OMG THIS LOOKS SO AWESOME, I MUST SEE THIS!", now my reaction is just "Meh".

As for the trailer, the beginning seemed a little odd to me, I was not expecting this to have this much humor (then again, I never read the comics). I thought the middle finger joke, as old as it is, was funny and Chris Pratt made me laugh. The visuals look amazing too. It took me a little while to warm up to the trailer, but I liked it overall. I'll probably be seeing this.

I know barely anything about this.

But I intend to marry Karen Gillan one day, so it may behoove me to stay informed about her work.

Looks pretty funny and entertaining, though i'm personally more excited about Amazing Spiderman 2.

MovieBob did a whole video on this: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/ ... the-Galaxy
I'm not a reader of comic books, and had never even heard of this until news of the movie. It looks refreshing and totally crazy.

I'd like it better if it were Rise of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
