Guardians of the galaxy trailer

Hey first topic here.

With Wrath of the Cosmos being a topic right now, I was wondering if anyone has seen the new Guardians of the Galaxy trailer.

It looks really good and the comic series it's based is great.

It looks very different from Avengers which makes me happy. I love Avengers, but I really don't want to watch "Avengers, but this time in space." It looks like Starlord is filling the same role that Tony Stark did, but at the same time isn't a Tony Stark rip off. Overall, I like the look of this movie and hope that it does really well.

I'm tentatively looking forward to it. I'm not going to get my hopes up, but it has potential...

IMO, trailers mean nothing, and it's safer to assume it's going to suck until we get evidence that it doesn't.  They seem to be going for a more of a comedy angle than a typical superhero movie, which could be good or could be stupid.  Too early to tell.

I'm so scared of it stinking, to be honest. It's a difficult title to translate to the screen, in my opinion, even if it is great.

While the setting is great for film - making a walking tree and a gun-racoon cool on screen just strikes me as harder than making the Avengers work. Treebeard not withstanding.

I want it to be great. Not Ant Man great, but still great.

How about a Runaways tv miniseries?

Marvel has had a great track record with its movies this last decade. At their worst, they tend to be adequate which is still pretty damn good. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt for this movie.

I'll see a superhero movie even knowing that it's going to probably disappoint me. Happily, Marvel hasn't had a terrible one since the Avenger set up movies (Iron Man on). The Green Hornet and Lantern movies, OTOH, I really wanted to be better.

I thought the Green Hornet movie was good for what it was, and I enjoyed watching it. I haven't bought the DVD and don't have a strong urge to rewatch it, but I still liked it. There is no excuse for Green Lantern. That movie was just nonsense.

Spiff thanks for posting the link, I'm on a smartphone or I would have.

The first movie poster is online too, and the tag line is pretty funny. Not to mention the art is good

I probably would have like the Green Hornet fine if I went into it without expectation, but I wanted the movie to be markedly better than the Kevin Smith treatment of the same material. I generally like Seth Rogen’s work, but felt the Hornet deserved a drier sense of humor.

Did you read the two books of Dynamite's adaptation of the Kevin Smith script? It's worth a read if you can find it.

I have not read those comics. Some day I might try to see if I can bum them off Reckless, who'll either have them, be borrowing them, or will know exactly where to buy them.

 

Edit: I had little to no expectations going into the Green Hornet movie, which is probably why I ended up enjoying it more than you.

I felt that The Green Hornet should have been closer to the source material, and not a comedy.

I don't have a lot of expectation out of the next FF movie, either.

Nielzabub - I invariably enjoy movies more if I go in without hopes for the movie, but I couldn't avoid expectations for Green Hornet. The television version kinda established Bruce Lee, ya know? As a counter-example, I enjoyed Knight's Tale, for example, because I was prepared to be mortified.

Two of us for Runaways, then.

Haven't read much Runaways, but what I've heard of it sounds awesome. Generally, I think that a miniseries has more potential for interesting plot and characters than a Hollywood blockbuster.

 

Amnachaidh- I completely understand. Sometimes you just can't avoid it.

Heck yeah!  I'm totally on board to watch Princess Powerful be awesome all day!

I'm hoping the flick turns out well.  I've been loving Bendis's run on the current Guardians comic series.  And Face gets to be best bros with The Iron Giant!  That's gotta be worth something, right?
