Bradley Cooper close to signing on as Rocket Raccoon.

I probably would have opted for a professional voice actor rather than a celebrity, but I can't argue much against Cooper.  He's emotive and quite funny.

1st trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy.

Love it.  The general public might not know who the **** these a-holes are, but hopefully with future trailers and a big marketing push (likely centered around Rocket and Groot), it'll do decent business.  Definitely has a Star Wars feel.

And the lead singer of Mouserat is perfectly cast.

I am beyond pumped for this, and I think the trailer looks pretty great.  I so hope that the movie does well, because I'd like to see more of this universe going forward as well.  I've really gotten into the Guardians comics (past and present) in the past couple years, and am so happy that we're getting a movie.  Time for Guardians to get its own thread here too :).

I'm digging it a lot.  First time through I was thrown for a loop - didn't expect anything so laid back.  But the second viewing really hooked me.

I love how the GUI on the cage obscured Star-Lord's middle finger.  First time through I thought they just blurred it out for the trailer.  "OBSCENE GESTURE: IMMINENT!"  That's comedy gold right there.

I have no concept of who these Guardians of the Galaxy are... I'll certainly go see it as I really like all the Marvel movies.  The trailer certainly made this a bit "campier" than even some of the current Marvel movies.  Hopefully it all comes together and works.  Not sure about a gun toting racoon,  ::)

Funny, the Raccoon and the Tree are the best characters IMHO.

This reminds me of The Fifth Element, where the creators are self aware of some of the ridiculousness, but they are happy to own it.

Really looking forward to this! Trailer looks great. Does seem a bit campier than the other Marvel stuff, but that's okay. Hopefully they will make it all work.

It feels like the Green Lantern.

Gotta love that you've got people like John C Reilly and Peter Serafinowicz (the original voice of Darth Maul, BTW) playing bit parts in this movie!

Yeah, except better actors + a fun plot + lots of humor + possibly a good movie.

First poster is out now as well:



There are also a series of short "intro" videos for each member of the Guardians, and you can hear a tiny bit of Rocket's voice (as done by Bradley Cooper):

I'd also say that the material lends itself to this tone more than Green Lantern did.  I hate when I hear this gripe, but I think it fits with GL.  Too much CGI.

Agreed.  They should have found a way to film in space with real aliens.  They could have at least used a real raccoon.   ::)

I think the movie looks campy fun.  The previews remind me a lot more of Firefly or Army of Darkness than Green Lantern, but to each their own.
