Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) – Trailer 1

Looks like another Marvel fun romp, but the lead actor needs help.

After all the hype from the announcement, the footage screened at Comic-con and the build-up to the trailer launch, the actual trailer is a bit of a fizzle. It does have the visual quality that can be expected from a Marvel production, and the supporting cast looks terrific: Benicio Del Toro, John C. Reilly, Djimon Hounsou and Lee Pace. And you can’t go much wrong with a pissed-off furry raccoon. But give that lead actor (Chris Pratt as Star Lord) a few bucket-loads of charm/screen presence – he’s sorely missing it!
