Get your first taste of the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer with this tease

Feb. 18, 2014by: Paul Shirey

While everyone waits patiently (right?) for the debut of the first GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY trailer tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the powers that be have decided to further entice you to tune in by dropping a coveted teaser for the trailer. Yeah, yeah, I know how much you loathe when they do that, yet here we are. I'm kind of over it at this point. You want to show me 20 seconds? No problem. Let's see it.

"Hooked on a feeling...":

Here's the synopsis:

In the far reaches of space, an American pilot named Peter Quill finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan.

Personally, I'm really looking forward to seeing this (the trailer AND the film). The Comic Con trailer was exceptional and it looks like they'll be sticking to a similar mold here, which is good news. GUARDIANS has a bang-up cast, an inspired director, and breathes a little new life into the franchise universe. While the staple characters are great, it's nice to introduce some new blood, which we'll be seeing a lot of in 2015 when THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, ANT-MAN, and most likely DR. STRANGE enter the picture.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Benicio Del Toro, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Djimon Hounsou, and John C. Reilly hits theaters on August 1, 2014. Tune in later tonight for the FULL trailer.

I'm a projectionist at a movie theater, and we recieved the full trailer today. It looks absolutely fantastic! I've seen it about 5 times already. From the little snippets we've seen of the comic con trailer, it seems to be the same exact one. "Hooked on a Feeling" playing at the end is the best part.

I'm still waiting for a legitimate complaint on this thread and haven't heard one yet. For those who say this looks like all other comic book movies that is completely false, this looks like something much different. And yes it could suck and be awful, but to say it doesn't look different is asinine.

my opinion

I am a fan of movies. I do not typically go ape-shit crazy for any and all comic book movies like alot of people do. I need to be sold on the look and the feel of this movie. So far, Guardians of the Galaxy has done nothing for me. I have read articles about it, and now have seen the teaser. If this is what they are showing to get people hyped, this I do not have much hope for it. I'm just not sold yet. Although I am a Chris Pratt fan, so I'll give it a little more leeway......

p.s. I am not

p.s. I am not well-versed in the Marvel universe, but aren't the Green Lantern Corps technically guardians of the galaxy? So if they are like a police force, whats with this movie? Is it redundant? Legitimate question. Not trolling.

I have a question to the people who are unenthused due to the footage looking 'generic'/'bland' etc. What would you qualify as original and exciting for a comic book movie? I'm not criticizing, I'm just curious what your barometer for quality and originality is if GOG doesn't qualify, because I would say the hodgepodge of a talking Raccoon, a humanoid tree and a green woman is pure sci-fi gold. Tropes are tropes for a reason. But furthermore, there's something to be said for classic motifs that

I liked the Burton Batmans because they have an unique style. And you feel the love Burton had for the material. Spider Man 2 was also a great Comic book movie IMO.
I hate that all the new marvel movies look alike. I get it. They want to create one big money making Universe but I wish they would try some different visual styles, take different approaches, use different music. Respect the viewers and give them more than just one liners and explosions...

Marvel's last chance?

With IM3 and Thor 2, being such repetetive, emotionless and mediocre films, the only film I'm really excited for in Marvel's Phase 2 is this. It has a freshness to it, an originality. Finally I feel like I might be surprised by something in the cinema if only because I have zero idea who these characters are.

Naturally it does seem like it might have the same old pacing as the rest based on the story - the world is in danger, part of it will be destroyed, and the hero(es) will win without

Naturally it does seem like it might have the same old pacing as the rest based on the story - the world is in danger, part of it will be destroyed, and the hero(es) will win without any tension or development of the villian. But I hope this will be different, because these characters are something new, the project feels like a creative risk, Chris Pratt has amazing comedic timing and I'm a sucker for sci-fi.

Too much CGI, too much colours...

Looks like your typical bland Blockbuster... Nothing original to be found here...Moving on...
Just look at the one knee on the ground Matrix still from the Trailer....

Hey, you're supposed to pretend that you like the trailer no matter what. Disney-Marvel made this movie, don't you know that? This isn't one of those films from the "bad guys" like Sony or Fox. Even though this teaser looks generic and unoriginal, you're supposed to pretend that you love it so that evil Sony and Fox will have to sell their Spider-Man and X-Men rights to Disney someday.

Okay.....

This is the first time I'm actually interested in this film. I didn't see how they were going to make this work before, but now I see a way. Let's see what the full trailer looks like, then hope for the best. This could be a lot of fun and a very different kind of film (which would be nice after the avalanche of remakes lately).

Can't wait for the full trailer. I keep thinking (and maybe it's just false hope, I don't know) that this will be in the same vein as the old Star Wars. Just good sci-fi adventure fun with great characters. If not, whatever. I'm still going to see it. Looks like fun.

Now I know why this is coming out in August, because it doesn't look that good. There's no way this movie could go head to head with X-Men DOFP or Amazing Spider-Man 2.

This isn't just going to be badass film, it's going to help make "Introducing..." less of a bad word in Hollywood. It is possible to balance sequels with brand new ideas - and go big.

Most likely because he is going to steal the show. I'm not generally a fan of teasers of trailers but dammit I couldn't help getting excited after seeing this.

The door swings both ways. The trailer is only 15 seconds, so why is everyone in this comment section sucking it's dick? It's because ' Guardians' is Disney-Marvel, and they can do no wrong in the eyes of the fanboys. Fanboys are like "fuck Sony-Marvel and Fox-Marvel, those guys suck at everything!" I'm tired of it, Amazing Spider-Man 2 got like 20 negative comments when it showed its first teaser on this site, and that movie looks phenomenal. Guardians looks like a much worse film than Amazing

No one is sucking Disney-marvels dick...Disney-marvel is doing an amazing job with its characters and not washing away the history to distance itself from the source material but instead embracing it with its own flair. Unlike Fox-marvel and Sony-marvel where they have to change things up as a FUCK YOU to Disney-marvel. Fox and Sony do not care about the characters just the money they get from the stupid movies they put out. the 15 seconds showed everyone the potential of this movie unlike
