We've heard news that a full theatrical trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy would be releasing in the near future, and my guess is it will be attached to X-Men: Days of Future Past, but so far we've been relegated to replaying Blue Swede's incredibly addictive "Hooked on a Feeling" and playing the teaser on repeat.
...not that there's anything wrong with that.
Thankfully, while we haven't seen the new trailer yet, somebody has! Da7e over at Latino Review has seen it thanks to an inside source, and he has written an extensive breakdown of everything we have to look forward to in the upcoming preview! (Check it our HERE! It's a great read!)
It looks like the trailer will start off with the now familiar but ever-hilarious Indiana Jones-esque temple scene from the first trailer, but what follows this time leads to plenty of meaty new content to chew on. Read on!
Replay of the “Who?”/”Come on, man, Star Lord” scene you’ve already learned to love. Quill gives up, saying “Forget it,” then Korath shoots at him. Quill falls backwards, dodging the shot that explodes the back wall of the chamber they're in. Without getting up, Quill hits his rocket boots and shoots out into the wilderness, escaping. Some quick shots of Star Lord being chased through a blue-ish, rocky planet with his mask on as Korath and his men chase him, shooting. Star Lord takes a huge space-leap and we speed ramp down until- MARVEL LOGO!
Being an avid fan of all things Blade Runner, Firefly and Star Wars I love science fiction as space noir within a gritty, dark universe full of thieves and cantinas, and it looks like we'll be getting plenty of that here!
We cut to the Guardians walking through some sort of space-port or bar with Zoe Saldana’s Gamorra in the lead. Peter Quill voice overs: “So here we are: A thief” - Star Lord stands in front of a cloud outside and tosses the ORB into the air and catches it. Groot throws a puny humanoid. “An Assassin” - Gamora turns, looking hot and green, then we see a quick cut of her fighting who I hope to be Nebula (Karen Gillian).
Also, it looks like we're getting a good look at our primary villain for this first outing.
Shot of Ronan the Accuser’s ship. Shot of a hooded Lee Pace as Ronan walking towards the camera. Close up shot of someone’s fist closing around a glowing red energy source. The fist suddenly CLENCHES and we cut to an exterior explosion
And more shots of the Nova Corps. including our first look at Glenn Close's character.
Glenn Close’s Nova Prime Rael takes the next line over a shot of a ship descending over a lush planet with a pattern of rivers and streets that looks vaguely like a compass rose. Probably the Nova Corps planet? As Close is still talking, we also see Ronan kneeling in the center of a circular stone pattern with his hammer resting on the floor beside him: “Are you telling me, the fate of 12 billion people, is in the hands of these thugs?”
Also, for those of you waiting to see Bradley Cooper's portrayal of what one great author referred to as:
"the greatest literary character in human history." - J. R. R. Tolkien
I give you: Rocket Raccoon, and yes, we'll actually see Rocket shooting... you know... ROCKETS!
Rocket Racoon hefts what looks like a four-barrell rocket launcher, cocks it and aims it through the sights...
Close on Rocket as he cocks a gun that is the same size he is. We push in on his face and BRADLEY COOPER’S VOICE COMES OUT: “Oh…..yeah!” Rocket loves his big gun. Smash cut to the shot of Rocket firing off Groot’s shoulder in the prison that we’ve already seen. A new close up of a snarling Rocket as he blasts something.
And James Gunn, not about to let us go one day without his music selections playing in our heads:
Peter Quill draws both his pistols at once and fires into the camera. Title: ALL HEROES. Norman Greenbaum’s “Spirit In the Sky” starts to add the “Hooked on a Feeling” pace to the edit.
There's also a mysterious planet-sized skull?!
A shot of Quill hitting someone, a shot of the Milano in colorful, magnificent fantasy space. They’re flying towards an Alien Skull the size of a PLANET. We see the Guardians in the cockpit looking out at the planet-head and Rocket says: “Whoa,” genuinely impressed. Title: START SOMEWHERE
I don't even have to tell you how awesome Groot is going to be.
Groot fights something his own size, but it doesn’t seem to matter, because Groot grabs this alien BY HIS HEAD with a single palm, picks him up, then slams his back down against the ground.
And for all you Parks & Rec fans, Chris Pratt is in fine-form as his quirky, awkward, but always lovable self.
Chris Pratt again: “I look around, and you know what I see? Losers” Shots of the Guardians sitting around the Milano, not liking being called losers. “-But life is giving us a chance.” Star Lord straps something that looks like a rocket to his leg and puts on his long coat in heroic motions. Drax asks: “To do what?” Quill: “Something good…” An ADORABLE shot of Groot gently giving a white flower to a girl who smiles at him. Gamora and Drax put their respective sharp weapons in their hip holsters. “...something bad…” A topless Gamora from behind. Quill in the cockpit of the Milano: “...bit-o-both.” Then more Rocket: “I don’t like the h----- order on that model ------ anyway.”
No, Rocket wasn't releasing a string of profanities; although I'm sure he will, but Di7e explained later on that some of the footage was very garbled.
Oh, I almost forgot to mention Vin Diesel's in this movie, and he sounds great!
Shot of Groot, who suddenly grows branches on his back like some sort of wood porcupine. Then a shot of Drax looking at Groot who SAYS!!!!!!!! “I’m Groot.” Sounds great. It’s gentle and it’s hard to tell if he’s saying “I am” or “I’m” or some hybrid of both, but - you guys - this is going to work. Groot expresses emotion wonderfully.
And just to make sure you don't forget how amazing Rocket is.
BRADLEY COOPER AS ROCKET Rocket in his prison yellows: ‘I’m just gettin’ started!” Cut to him walking down a corridor with the rest of the Guardians, holding a huge gun and adjusting the fabric around his crotch. There’s certainly a little bulge.Then Rocket goes “HAAAAAAAAAA!” from the cockpit of his ship and leans forward on the throttle as he BLASTS into an air battle against Ronan against blue sky.
Well, that was a ton of content, but believe it or not there's even more to read in the original article. I have the utmost confidence in this movie, August can't come soon enough, and as Cooper put it best, they're-
"just gettin' started!"
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy releases in the US, August 1, 2014.
