Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

Not judging the movie, but I wasn't really impressed or overwhelmed by the trailer myself. Just not keen on the very American style humour represented.
Winding your hand up to show your middle finger?... no words.

And "a-holes"? Do people seriously actually say "a-holes"?

And DANG when they mean DAMN
Witch when they mean Bitch
Fudge when they mean Fuck
Shoot when they mean Shit

It's less common but yeah, someone, somewhere says a-holes.

How many of you guys have seen Slither? That's the only James Gunn movie I've seen so far, and I thought he did a great job of mixing the humor and horror elements in that one, and I'm pretty sure we'll be getting the same here only with sci-fi action elements.
Seen it (many times), love it, and I own the DVD. Nathan Fillion was what drew me to it, but I stayed for the great horror/comedy mix. It was a shame that it didn't perform better in theaters. It would have been right at home in the 1980's, alongside the likes of "Night of the Creeps" and "Night of the Comet."

Peter Serafinowicz must, or at least thought his character would, since he ad libbed the line.
I hear it a lot on TV shows/movies where people can't or won't swear. It's really not that uncommon.

That's in keeping with family-friendly/approved-for-all-audiences prudishness.

Just saw this trailer. (Did anybody actually link to it? I went back a few pages and didn't see it, but Google is my friend.)

People, the movie isn't even out until August. The trailer isn't supposed to make you want to see it right now; that would be counterproductive.

So, the trailer answers the question of who the heck are these guys. They're introduced, and then standing there five in a row, so now we know. They're the Underdogs, the Third Stringers, the Mystery Men, the Loser Squad.

We're promised Ack-shun, Additood, and squeeable moments. Or should I say squeal-able moments, because we're certainly promised that too. This is targeting people who like talking animals. My girlfriend liked The Avengers, because she likes the Hulk, but in principle she's also likely to go for a talking raccoon because it could easily bring out her inner Bolt. And that's especially if the execution is state-of-the-art, which it had better be.

The other thing this trailer did was keep it all pretty close to the vest. The trailer seems to telegraph (in the glimpses and hints that were fed) that the key moments aren't given away, which is a good thing if it actually delivers. If the movie were coming out next week (which it's not), the trailer would be saying that this is a movie that you're going to have to see to actually understand, which (again, if it delivers) is potentially a good thing. They seem to be positioning themselves for word of mouth and increased buzz about it in the webosphere to spread about just how Awe-sum it is. The trailer is basically saying, "Stay tuned."

Seriously underwhelming trailer. Its a tongue-in-cheek comedy?
About as much as Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers were I guess? An action adventure film can have tongue-in-cheek comedic elements and a lighter tone without being a "tongue-in-cheek comedy" per se.

Seriously now, this is a story where the main protagonists include a cliche sexy green alien assassin girl, the poster boy for steroid abuse, a giant walking house plant and a sodding *space racoon*! Plus with a title as goofy as "Guardians of the Galaxy" did anyone here honestly expect them to come at this with a straight face?

Is it possible it'll be different in the actual film?

Also, odds are the characters aren't actually speaking English...I mean they are aliens, no?

Yeah, if you read the small print of the read out on Quill's rap-sheet, it says something about having a translator device in his head.

Are people seriously judging the ENTIRE MOVIE based on a TWO MINUTE TRAILER?

My God.....
Of course, this is the internet...what do you expect anyway?

Whatever the film ends up being, it's clear that the people that made the trailer want their audience to get the feeling that this is a comedic action sci-fi adventure. Like Iron Man meets The Dirty Dozen...in space! That alone has me interested. After all the overwrought nonsense that was DKR & MoS I'm more than willing to embrace the idea of *fun* comic book films again.
Good point, here. Somebody could easily string together scenes from any of the Iron Man movies to make them look like "80s beer comedies".

Classic!

I find it weird that people are taking issue with the jokey tone of the teaser trailer. Like Downey doesn't crack jokes left and right as Iron Man?
