A second trailer has appeared for the upcoming Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy, giving us a glimpse into the backstory of the human hero Star-Lord.
This latest trailer is far more dramatic in tone than the previous one, which highlighted the film’s more lighthearted elements. In this one, the cheery modern music is replaced by a grand, sweeping backing track and we hear the heroes make their pledge to stand against that which threatens the galaxy.
Of course, all that is subsequently undermined by our old friend Rocket Raccoon.
The more I see of this movie, the more I want to see it. When I first heard of it, I was afraid Marvel movies might end up with another Howard the Duck, but the trailers showcase a movie with good action and effects that promises to be a lot of fun to watch.
This latest trailer really showcases the film’s nature as an origin story for the team. This will, of course, fit in with the rest of the Marvel cinematic universe, so it’s important that these new characters are well established. How they will effect the cinematic landscape of the franchise though, we will just have to wait and see.
Will you be going to see this one?
