That looked pretty sad to me, for pretty much the reasons that FSM delineates.

Wow, I didn't realize it was a comedy. Was Ryan Reynolds too busy too play Star-Lord?
Yeah, get the superhero movie box-office poison to play in a Marvel movie?!

Looks.... Interesting, I guess? Not sold yet.

What we seem to have, however, is just a comedy that has a super-huge budget.
I have a feeling this initial trailer was designed in such a way to introduce people who aren't familiar with the characters. We need to get people used to the idea of a super raccoon and a talking tree before we start trying to convince them that there's also a serious plot to consider.

All this trailer did was focus on one scene. Even the most serious movies have comedic parts to them. I think we'll be surprised.
Yeah, it was just an intro to the characters. I don't think the actual movie will be quite so bubbly. That being said, because it was hard to get a feel for the plot, it felt almost like a teaser trailer. The movie looks fun, but I'm also going to wait for a more traditional trailer.

I wasn't crazy about Chris Pratt's "Ugly American" type character which seems a bit hamfisted. However, I don't mind being in the minority if most people are excited about this. Hopefully the final product is one that will make us all happy.

I love this line.

"There is no doubt that the cinematic pinnacle of my career is our cameras circling around a maniacal raccoon shooting a machine gun on the back of a living tree.

And I say this with as much modesty as I can muster – because certainly it is not me, but the hand of God guiding us all as we make this film – but it just may be the pinnacle of cinema in general.

When we shot it we were twirling around an empty space in a giant set. But I think all of us could see the raccoon and the tree in our minds. They were already starting to form. I can’t wait to share them with everyone in August."

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

For the (few) people who aren't won over by this trailer, I've got two questions: Just what were you expecting? I mean it's a movie about a group of outlaws who have given themselves the moniker: "Guardians of the Galaxy" just for shits and giggles. Plus you know, the talking Raccoon who murders people with the help of his giant tree...

And second, I'm curious if you guys have read the comics? Now I admit I've only read the current Bendis run, but from what I see in the trailer, the tone is pretty spot on from what is present in the comics. Maybe earlier incarnations of the comics were slightly more serious, I don't know. But all I know is that I love Bendis' current run and this movie appears to capture the tone perfectly.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

I am a huge fan of comic book movies with X-Men, Marvel movie universe, Spiderman, Batman, Superman. I read comics as a kid and every once in a while, will pick one up. In that sense I am not so much a general audience guy who has no idea about comics, but I'm also not a person who reads them all of the time either. That being said, I hadn't heard of GOTG until I heard about this movie and then I researched it and was completely skeptical of this movie. I began thinking Marvel cannot pull off a talking raccoon and this movie is going to be too out there for people to grasp, myself included. After seeing this trailer, all of my skepticism has vanished. I am now exited about this movie and I think general audiences will probably feel the same. As for the jokey hokeyness in the trailer, Star Trek IV:TVH was not as serious as the previous films, yet it still contained drama at times and pulled at our heart strings, while still maintaining a fun adventurous vibe and the movie did great.

Re: Marvel planning Guardians of the Galaxy movie!

This is usually the sort of movie that fans of the genre will enjoy but general audiences will largely stay away from. It'll be a big test of Marvel's brand and marketing prowess whether this can break out and be a success.
