Many of us have had our doubts about Guardians of the Galaxy, particularly those of us not as familiar with the source material, who felt incredulous about the fact that there was a talking, machine-gun toting raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) in this film, but honestly: The trailer assuages most of those concerns. It looks good. More importantly, it looks legitimately funny, and the casting of Chris Pratt makes even more sense now. It’s not just the muscles; it is the goofball Andy Dwyer sense of humor they wanted. James Gunn (Slither) seems very well suited to the project.
So, yes: After the trailer, it’s OK to be legitimately excited about Guardians of the Galaxy.
Not for nothing, but del Toro? Dude! And you have to pay close attention, but there are some quick shots of Karen Gillan with her head shaved as Nebula and Lee Pace as Ronan The Accuser.
