Judging movies by their trailers and posters is all well and good, but sometimes a brief scene of characters interacting with each other is enough to get fans energized.
Though we don't have such a clip for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy quite yet, we do have the next best thing. Total Film recently had the chance to see an entire scene of the film for themselves and described it in their last issue. Here's how they put it:
Gamora, Drax, Star-Lord, and Groot move tentatively forward, deeper into the Dark Aster.
"I want you all to know I am grateful for your acceptance after my blunders," says Drax.
"We all make mistakes Drax," says Quill.
They're scoping out the wreckage of the Dark Aster, guns and blasters at the ready.
"It is pleasing to once again have friends," Drax emotes, slowly, with gravity, as if he's speaking a language he's unused to. "I can barely see," he says, as the four move further into the ship.
Groot waves his arm (when CGI Groot is added in post we'll see him disperse luminous spoors which light up the room).
"How did you learn to do this?" Drax asks.
"I'm pretty sure the answer is 'I Am Groot'" Quill quips.
"You, Quill, are my friend," muses Drax. "This dumb tree is my friend. And this green whore is now my..."
"You must STOP!" snaps Gamora, furious.
Off-screen we hear Karen Gillan's Nebula: "Gamora, look at what you have done. You have always been weak, you stupid traitorous..."
"Nobody talks to my friends like that!" bellows Drax.
"But whore is perfectly fine?" Gamora quips back.
As you can read, the strength of Marvel's trip into the cosmos relies heavily on the chemistry between the characters, particularly with Peter Quill as their leader. He's quick to jump into the conversation, and Chris Pratt will likely deliver as a strong lead in that respect.
To be honest, I'm hoping Drax becomes the unexpected heavyweight of the film, as his character in the comics is certainly complex and fun to unravel. Marvel needs to hurry up and just base an entire teaser around him.
I highly suggest picking up the latest Total Film and checking out the rest of the spread. It has tons of quotes from James Gunn and the rest of the cast.
