Must Watch: Second Action-Packed 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Trailer

May 19, 2014

Guardians of the Galaxy

Following an awesome new poster last week, the new trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy has arrived, and this looks like one hell of a way to end the summer in August. Many were skeptical that a film in space with a talking raccoon and a giant tree as heroes would work, even with Marvel behind the project, but this looks fantastic. We finally get to hear Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon, Chris Pratt looks like a certified badass, Zoe Saldana looks sexy even in green, Dave Bautista is ripped and Groot is just Groot. We're sold, but will general audiences be on board by the time the film arrives this summer? Watch below!

Here's the second trailer for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy, direct from Facebook:

Guardians of the Galaxy is directed by James Gunn (Slither, Super). Brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits — Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Peter discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand. The Marvel Studios film arrives in theaters August 1st, 2014.

    this is one superhero movie i want to see, normally dont like them but this one looks great, doesnt take it self to serious and looks like perfect blend of action and giggles which is what action movies should be in my opinion. compare old superman to new superman as an example.
    • Jon Odishaw
      Oh my lord in heaven give me strength. This guy again. I haven't seen a single marvel movie that took itself too seriously. Iron man is a walking sarcastic joke cracker, the Avengers was hilarious, Thor is so oblivious it's a riot. Have you seen any super hero movies? Or are you just trying to use the word "giggles" again?
      • JBrotsis
        I was trying to figure out a way to tag you in a response to his comment Jon, lol.
        • Jon Odishaw
          Don't worry, if he posts I will find him haha

      I'm sure it'll be a giggle fest

    This looks insanely fun!
  • Vincent Cipollone
    looks good
  • JBrotsis
    Sick. Just purely SICK!
  • Rock n Rollllll
    That face mask looks pretty badass.
  • Xerxexx
  • I'm hooked on a feeling...that this movie will be good for me!
  • Ricardo_PT
    This is how pure awesomeness looks like! I can't wait to see this, looks so much fun! Marvel should be praised for trying something like this.
  • SteadyEddieTX
    This may turn out to be more fun than I originally thought...
  • Alex
    Am I missing something here? This looks corny as hell. Kind of like Green Lantern but with a raccoon. Is it supposed to be like this? Have never never read the comic. Just wondering what is the taget audience?
    • Jon Odishaw
      People who like comic books, action movies, sarcasm and general badassary? Pretty much everyone who visits this website.
    • Zer0
      Me. That's who.
    • BoiledPNutz
      If you knew the source material, or could at least see that this comic and subsequent movie does not take itself too seriously, you would appreciate it more like the fans are. But, the only similarity between this and Green Lantern is the Nova Corps is the galactic police. Other than that this movie is what Green Lantern wishes it could be using 100 genie lamps.
    • There's no denying that the Raccoon is going to draw in kids because he's funny and cute, but adults are going to like him because he's a murderous psycho path who's catchphrase is "BLAM! I JUST MURDERED YOU!"

        One time I saw this really cheesy trailer. It had people fighting with laser swords, an effeminate robot and a seven foot tall thing that looked like somebody walking around with my grandmother's carpet all over him. I wish I could remember what it was called but with crap like that I'm sure it bombed.
      • David Diaz
        Parent should definitely not be taking kids to see this, cute raccoon or not. Marvel movies are not for children. Although I absolutely loved Cap 2, I hated that I had to watch it next to a dad and his 5 year old. Completely inappropriate. I've got a 7 year old boy and he'll just have to wait until he's old enough even though many of his friends are seeing films like these. Not sure what the rush is to expose children to violence on screen. End rant. : )
        • hey thanks for speaking for all the parents out there. How is this any more violent or worse than Star Wars? The fact of the matter is, when I said kids I meant like 10-17. I'm 30... I think anyone under 21 is a kid... lol
          • David Diaz
            Your welcome. And thanks for clarifying your definition of a kid. I'm 33. But are we really that old that kids are anyone under 21? It's funny and sad at the same time. LOL. Personally, 11 or 12ish is probably when I'll start allowing my son to see Marvel films. I just can't stand seeing little kids at these movies. The worst was seeing a family with a little girl that couldn't have been older than 4 or 5 in Ninja Assassin! Really?!!

      • denverchris
        Hey, c'mon man, I loved Starcrash.
      • TheOct8pus
        Tom Cruise is not THAT affeminate....
    • Fidel Reyes
      Everyone is the target audience. Even Mark Millar over at WB/DC Movies has stated that he wants to watch. Overall I would say that you are in the minority of skeptics, and no it is not like Green Lantern that movie was not in space for about 90% of the film and took itself way too serious even when it was being overly stupid. Just think of it as Avengers in space or as Marvel's rendition of Star Wars.
  • Astroboy3000
    whoever has been choosing the songs to use in the trailers is quite possibly the world's most powerful genius. on a side note, i'm really surprised that Rocket does't have an accent.
    • Yeah when I read him in the comics it's always as a Jason Statham type.
    • EmagSamurai
      Music made that trailer!
  • Astroboy3000
    you make this 25 years ago and Kurt Russell is the only choice for Starlord
    • Ed Blount
      Kurt Russell would be perfect
    • denverchris
      In 89? Clearly that would be either Kurt Russell or Bruce Willis. Or maybe Michael Dudikoff if you are feeling particularly low budget.
  • Captain Omniscient
    I can't not see this. I hope it flops like John Carter.
    • Stop trying to be a downer d-bag. This movie looks like a blast.
    • JBrotsis
      I can't comment negatively on a movie you like out of spite.
  • Zer0
    Is there any skin color Zoe Saldana doesn't look good in? This movie looks too dope to wait for!
  • Ed Blount
    Looks like a great summer movie, bring it!
  • I was seeing this anyway, but definitely seeing it now.
    Sweet emotions!!!~
  • I really think it looks like pure fun. Doesn't take itself too serious and thats good. Also, the visuals look rather good. I really hope this will not flop if its any good.
  • IamSlave
    Must…Not…Watch…Trailer. Don't want anything spoiled.
  • Blake
    SO psyched for this movie. The first trailer got me intrigued enough to read some of the current Marvel NOW run, and now I can't wait to read more and for this movie to come out!
  • Fidel Reyes
    I wanted to hear the Uga-Chaka chant haha, but I am still loving this movie's trailers!
    • David Diaz
      The chant is in the first trailer.
      • Fidel Reyes
        I never said it wasn't included in the first trailer... I just meant that it would have been cool to hear it again.
        • David Diaz
          Oh ok. Just thought maybe you hadn't seen the first trailer.
  • Ryan
    Why would they use that music for the trailer?? It in no way makes me want to see the movie. Using oldies songs on a trailer for a movie set in outer space makes absolutely no sense... I really hope that isnt how the soundtrack will be. Who made this movie? A 60 year old?
    • Did you watch the previous trailer? Quill (Star-Lord) listens to music on cassettes (also has a cassette stereo on his ship in this trailer). It's his music. The character, that is. Makes perfect sense in that regard.
    • davidshaw
      You're an idiot. Those songs are from Star Lord's mix tape from when he grew up on Earth in the 80's. Stop being an idiot.
  • I'm into it. Looks fun, adventurous, quirky, and action packed. Can't wait to enjoy this in the theater.
  • grimjob
    The more I pay attention to this movie, the more I want to see it. And I love James Gunn. Yes, I am now very excited to see this.
  • Payne by name
    Although I'm worried that I might be becoming superhero & superdestruction fatigued (there's only so many times I can see buildings topple with no consequence), I do like James Gunn and this could be pretty entertaining. I just hope it has the confidence to be a little edgy rather than being shackled by a need to be all things to all people.
  • Michael Kingscott
    Can't believe I've gone from "meh" when I first heard about this to "must watch" :-) Chris Pratt plays it very well; I'm not going to do any further research on the Guardians so I can go into the film unprepared :-)
  • dawko
    I'd love it if I was 10...but all I see is a disney cartoon made into a movie
    • Xerxexx
      But its not a cartoon...
  • David Diaz
    Knowhere looks amazing! So glad they showed that; our first glimpse of a Celestial in this Marvel U,albeit a dead one. I wonder if they'll meet Cosmo there? "I am Groot" sounded awesome.
  • Nash
    This is going to be one of the most succesful franchises in film history; looks like the perfect mix of action and fun!
