‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Roundup: Updated Trailer with Additional Footage, Saldana & Gillan Face Off
The marketing for James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy should start hitting its stride in the next couple of weeks as the August 1st premiere date creeps closer and closer. This time around we’ve got an updated trailer with some new footage of Chris Pratt‘s Starlord in action and a rehearsal still from Gunn’s Instagram account.
First up is the new trailer. It comes courtesy of MTV and features some additional footage of Starlord’s attempt to escape capture.
Seems like Starlord has a few tricks up his sleeve and might not be the bumbling comedian that everyone thinks he is.
The Guardians of the Galaxy cast and crew have been hard at work on some scheduled re-shoots, which might include a mid credits scene with Nathan Fillion, and an extended fight scene between Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula (Karen Gillan).
Karen has a bit of hair grown back, and both look fantastic. This fight should be a doosey, a real knock-down drag-out donny-brook of a fight. I’m imagining a bunch of flips and gymnastics and knife blades gleaming and scrapping across armor with sparks and screeches.
Let’s face it, as much as we all enjoyed seeing Cap and the Winter Soldier go at it in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, it was Black Widow kicking ass that really got everyone out of their seats. You can’t forget how awesome it was when Councilwoman Hawley, Jenny Agutter (Logan’s Run), went all kung-fu-fighting on Robert Redford‘s ass!
This fight between Saldana and Gillan should take it to the next level. I’m hoping it impresses J.J. Abrams so much that Uhura gets some ass kicking fight scenes in the next Star Trek.
