The Guardians of the Galaxy Arrive with the Film’s First Trailer

After an excruciating wait since the footage premiere at San Diego Comic Con, the first official trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is finally here!

Is it bad to say that I want August to be here already after watching this trailer? Forget The Winter Soldier or the season finale for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I just want to be watching Guardians of the Galaxy right the hell now.

As soon as I heard that James Gunn was directing this and Chris Pratt was starring as Star-Lord, I knew that Marvel was taking a risk. Gunn’s background is pretty much a primer in balls to the wall crazy to the point that Slither is just a drop in the bucket, and Pratt’s action roles before this movie can be summed up with “Burt Macklin.”

Not to mention it’s getting into one of the weirder parts of the Marvel Universe: ALL THE ALIENS. Not Asgardians, but actual aliens. Sentient trees, talking raccoons, green and blue skinned assassins, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Still, the trailer just looks like it works. You pull from weird and fun, you bring weird and fun. I was already looking forward to this film, but between Star Lord flipping off Nova Corps, Karen Gillian being awesome set to ‘Hooked On A Feeling,’ ROCKET FREAKING RACOON AND GROOT, and Peter Serafinowicz saying “What a bunch of A-Holes,” this movie just rocketed to the top of my summer movie must sees.

Not to mention shirtless and buff Chris Pratt. Holy hell, I spoke strictly in splurting noises for at least 30 seconds.

Will the movie hold up to the awesomeness of the trailer? We’ll see, but I know that any future space movie for Marvel rides on this one being successful. That includes any potential inclusion of Captain Marvel. SO DON’T FUCK THIS UP.

Guardians of the Galaxy arrives in theaters on August 1. Watch the first trailer below and let us know what you think!
