Star Wars

The release of Marvel's final comic book film of 2014 is still over a month away with Guardians of the Galaxy arriving on August 1st. But that's nothing compare to how long we have to wait for the release of Star Wars: Episode VII in December of 2015. But the hype for both films merges together today with a fanmade trailer for the original Star Wars trilogy in the style of the latest theatrical trailer for Marvel's cosmic adventure. It's truly an impressive piece of editing, and it makes Star Wars have the same tone as Guardians of the Galaxy seems to have. Plus, we also have some magazine covers from Empire for the Marvel film as James Gunn has confirmed (via Twitter) a Nathan Fillion cameo in the film. Watch now!

First, here's the Guardians of the Galaxy inspired trailer for the Star Wars trilogy (via Nerdist):

And here's the two new Empire covers featuring the heroes and villains of Marvel's film:

Guardians of the Galaxy

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.

Am I the only one who has a bad feeling about the Guardians of the galaxy? I think it will be a dud!

It certainly looks enjoyable enough, but I feel it will majorly disappoint because of the ridiculous amount of hype people put on it because of a single trailer featuring a 70s Tarantino song.

I think it has potential, but maybe not as big as blockbuster as some might think. I feel the producers are hoping that the dedicated Marvel fan base who will see it will help via word of mouth to convince others on the fence to see it (assuming that it doesn't stink so much that the Marvel fan base hates it).

Somebody called the Band of Buzzkill and sent them straight here!

I feel like this movie has great potential, not just because it's a Marvel film. I'm not a big Marvel fanboy, heck I didn't even know about this comic up till now.
