Trailer Roundup: Guardians and Expendables

Guardians of the Galaxy International Trailer

This latest trailer is made up of lots of new footage, and shows off the impressive visuals, scope, and sense of humor in Marvel's next film. Most enjoyable is watching the banter and bickering between Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Rocket Raccoon (a CGI Bradley Cooper). In fact, the marketing materials seem to be positioning Rocket Raccoon as the stand out character, delivering both action and humor. This trailer just adds to my excitement for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy, which comes out August 1, 2014.

Trailer Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

The Expendables 3 New Trailer

Now this is more like it! I have to admit that I found both The Expendables 1 and 2 to be a little boring. The novelty of seeing so many 80's action stars together, calling back to old catch phrases wore off pretty quickly for me. But this trailer looks like a lot of fun. Much of the existing cast returns, along with new additions: Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, and more. Hopefully this will be an action-packed, last hurrah for Stallone and co. The Expendables 3 comes out August 15, 2014.

Trailer Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
