Watch the 30-Seconds Guardians of the Galaxy Comic Con Footage

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) Movie Concept Artwork

While you still can, ahem.

Inevitably, someone snapped videos of the 30-seconds or so of footage from James Gunn’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” that was shown at Comic Con. I must have missed that they actually showed footage from the movie, but apparently the film has been shooting for a while now. Go figure.

I gotta admit, it looks pretty darn snazzy. I’m always worried about these comic book movies with too many aliens and wacky Gods, like the “Thor” movies. But Marvel went and turned “Thor” into something actually credible, and from the looks of these footage, they might have done it again with the “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie. Of course, putting most of the action in a dark room will, no doubt, hide much of the “cheese” factor when you’re dealing with wacky looking aliens.

And the Nova Corp., it appears, will be less powered than in the comic books. These guys just look like intergalactic cops led by John C. Reilly (in the vid) and Glenn Close. You can see them, in full helmet, from the set images we recently posted here and another pic below.

And oh yeah, in case you missed this morning’s news, Vin Diesel is in talks to play/voice the alien tree Groot.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” stars Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillian, Lee Pace, Djimon Hounsou, Benicio del Toro, and saves the day next year, August 1, 2014.

    Are you kidding me? That looks ridiculous – and not in a good way. Raccoon with a gun?? Or is this just supposed to be a straight comedy?

      It’s from the comics! Don’t knock the character til you read the books. Rocket is BADASS!!!!! Seriously!

      It’s a SPACE raccoon. And really, the raccoon with the gun is what bothers you? There’s a TALKING TREE in this movie, too.

      • Tim

        I rest my case.

          Do you even read comics? Cause if this is ridiculous to you the whole idea of comics should be.

            I grew up on Howard the Duck and, Bucky O’Hare. They had me at raccoon with a gun!

        Hey now, he’s from Earth, but aliens messed with him. So he’s the only TALKING, GUNTOTING, SNARKY Racoon in the universe. Makes for a rather lonely existence.

    That didn’t look half bad for something still in production and with minimal effects finished. Count me in!

    Missed them both. Guess I’ll just go and watch a “Farscape” episode instead

    • http://www.beyondhollywood.com/ Nix

      You can never go wrong with a Farscape episode, dude.

      • ErickKwon

        Obviously, and it looks like Kevin Feige thinks so too
