“Usually when you’re introduced to a movie through its first theatrical trailer or teaser, you’re given an insight on what you’re to expect through the course of watching the film. With the case of Guardians of the Galaxy, however, right from the first poster itself, there was no way I could get to put my finger what to expect from it. Then came the first trailer to explode the universe, and to that I could only say:
“This looks… weird.”
And I wasn’t the only one. There were quite a few people around me who had the same reaction toward the first look of the movie. Could this possibly be Marvel’s biggest risk? I could only speculate so much till the second trailer – driven more toward the subtle tease of some plot points than the previous one – arrived, all thunder and lightning.
Thai is exactly when I knew that this was going to be something I was going to have a ball watching.
Marvel, meanwhile, takes the huge risk of bringing in directors not quite familiar with the tropes of the genre. Which is what makes the inclusion of the talented James Gunn (Slither, Super) in the director’s chair for this new addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe so much more exciting. Gunn – through the course of his slightly recently acquired directorial status has taken quite a few risks, coming up with absolutely radical decisions on the basis of the tonality of his movies.”
