The 17-minute preview is of Guardians of the Galaxy is making the rounds now as well and reviews are beginning to come in. CBM's review is largely positive of what they've seen of the movie so far, calling it "something different" from what Marvel's other movies have been.
Going into the 17 minute 3D IMAX preview of Guardians of the Galaxy, I definitely had my fair share of doubts. I loved Super and Slither but how do those films prepare James Gunn for the $100 million dollar Guardians of the Galaxy? Sure, Chris Pratt made a phenomenal physical transformation for the role of Star-Lord but that doesn't guarantee a strong on-screen presence. How would Rocket Raccoon and Groot look on-screen? Would Drax have any depth beyond being the strongman of the group? I had all these questions and more but if what was shown in today's previewis merely the tip of the iceberg, consider me 175% sold on Guardians of the Galaxy. Gunn, Pratt, Zoe Saldana and co. have produced a Marvel film that looks, sounds or feels nothing like any Marvel film that's come before.
