Counting Down my 20 Favorite Trailers: #6: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’

Have you ever experienced a trailer that was lightning in a bottle? Well, that was my experience watching the teaser for Guardians of the Galaxy for the first time. I had no idea Marvel Studios was making a movie about these wacky band of misfits and so when the trailer started I was like, “What the world is this?” When the Marvel Studios logo appeared I got even more confused.

The scenario, which was already a little dismal, was getting worse and worse by the second. One of the Winter Soldiers was now fighting both Natasha and Sharon Carter at the same time. Sharon, in trying to help her friend after finding Natasha barely clinging to life as the Winter Soldier pinned her to the car roof choking to her death, jumped up to shoot him only to have him disarm her in the blink of an eye.

Well, I got to say, it lived up to the hype.

The very beginning thrust me back in my seat, leaving me like, “Whoa, this is cool!” And then Hugh Jackman started singing and I was enchanted. Wow! The man can sing. I know I said that when I watched Les Miserables but hearing him singing songs that sound like pop songs I was even more impressed. I mean, I’m just blown away ’cause he’s Wolverine but wow, he’s multi-talented.
