I’ll be the first to admit that I know nothing of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy comic. In fact, I’d never even heard of it until perhaps a year ago when information about this movie began to circulate the internet. It seems Marvel is hellbent on bringing every one of its story lines and characters to the silver screen.
After learning more about Guardians of the Galaxy I thought the premise sounded laughable. I mean, really . . . a superhero raccoon? With this first official trailer my mind may be changing. Sure, it still looks silly, but it’s not trying to take itself too seriously like many of the Marvel movies. That’s probably the only thing that could have saved this movie. Still, it looks like it could be a lot of fun.
Guardians of the Galaxy will hit theaters on August 1, 2014.
