For the past couple years, Marvel has been killing it in the movie industry with their masterful buildup of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). They’ve done such a good job that the WB and DC are rushing to try to imitate them by force-feeding us a new Batman (hello guy who failed in his only superhero franchise and then followed it up with the ever mysteriously titled ‘Gigli’) in the upcoming Superman sequel, and introducing a scrawny, but HOT, Wonder Woman (classy gorgeous Gal Gadot). Yes, Marvel can do no wrong right now. Yet in their first foray into the space-adventure themed ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ I can understand why some people are a bit apprehensive. Fear not, good folks of PimpKnowledge Land. Trust me when I say that this movie will be awesome! There’s been some footage leaked, but the first official trailer is dropping February 18th.
There’s a lot to be excited about in this movie, from its tie-in to Avengers supervillain Thanos to Lieutenant Uhura as a green-skinned, sexy alien (oddly reminiscent of her roommate from Starfleet Academy). But what’s gonna take most people by surprise will definitely be the bad-guys-ass-kicking duo “Rocket Racoon and Groot.” Look, we all love a little bromance, especially when the two are complete opposites. Like Agent J and Agent K of MIB, Carter and Lee of ‘Rush Hour,’ and of course, Riggs and Murtaugh of ‘Lethal Weapon,’ it’s the unlikely pairing that leads to bromance that always melts the heart of fanboys everywhere. Here, we have a foul-mouthed, gun-blazing, raccoon-like hero named…well, Rocket Raccoon, who always has the last word. In the other corner, we have his partner Groot, a tree-like creature whose only words are “I am Groot.” (Creative, I know). RR is voiced by super cool Bradley Cooper while Groot is voiced by Vin Diesel, who probably took the job because he wanted to stretch his acting chops. Together, they’re meant to save the galaxy…and maybe the universe! And while you can’t see the trailer until next Tuesday, you can see them in action right here!
Rocket Raccoon and Groot kicking ass!
Pretty awesome, right? Just like those of you who fell in love with those buddy cop movies of the 90s, you’re sure to love this new pairing. Even better, they’re all led by Burt Macklin, FBI!
They’re led by me?!!
Haha, I can’t wait to see this movie! Guardians of the Galaxy comes out August 1st. If you agree, let us know down below in the comments section.
