     I know that I am not big into these Marvel films, but for some odd reason I am mildly intrigued in this new film Guardians of the Galaxy. First off, it has Benicio Del Toro in it, so that is a huge plus. Second, James Gunn has a very dry, odd sense of humor and you can see some of that in the trailer. Third, I want to see this crazy-ass raccoon. The film is a stretch, branching out from the traditional hero-laden films such as Iron Man, Thor and Captain America. The film stars Chris Pratt as a pilot named Peter Quill/Star Lord, who steals a coveted orb and is chased by the villain Ronan (Lee Pace). He unwillingly is brought together with a group of misfits, including Groot, a tree-like human (voiced by Vin Diesel), Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), Gamora (Zoe Saldana) in another shade of bluish-green, ala Avatar and the vengeful Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista). Benicio Del Toro plays The Collector and I will be interested to see how he is in this film. Gunn will bring it, but how much is yet to be seen. It is a studio film so who knows. The film will be released on August 1. Enjoy the trailer.
