Jeez, that title, huh? What a mouth full. A new trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) was released this morning, which reminded me that a new Guardians of the Galaxy trailer was released last week, which I forgot to post. So I figured I would just post them together. I’m not sure if I should call this a Trailer 2-for-1 or a Mini Trailer Round-Up. Either way, check them out, they are both pretty sweet.
Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer #3
Official Synopsis: Brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits–Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon; Groot, a tree-like humanoid; the deadly and enigmatic Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand–with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.
This Guardians of the Galaxy trailer is more serious than either of the previous trailers which were more comedic in tone, but it shows more of the Guardians together. There is still humor, particularly with Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), towards the end. Other cool things about this trailer: Slight glimpse into Peter Quill’s origin, Gamora (Zoe Saldana) speaks, and a good look at Ronan the Accuser. There is part of a speech from Quill that sounds pretty cliche, but what do you expect from a comic book movie? I keep getting more and more excited for this movie the more I see of it.
Guardians of the Galaxy rockets into theaters August 1, 2014. Directed by James Gunn, it stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Baurista, the voices of Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan, Benicio Del Toro, John C. Reilly, Peter Serafinowicz, and Glenn Close.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) Trailer #3
Official Synopsis: The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.
This may be my favorite trailer for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. All the turtles are seen up close and in action, as is their brotherly relationship. To be honest, I kind of dig Shredder’s look. I just hope he also has some martial arts skills and his power doesn’t come solely from his suit. Mikey has always been my favorite turtle and it looks like that’s not going to change with this movie. At this point I’m more intrigued about this movie than turned off.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fights its way into theaters August 8, 2014. Directed by Jonathan Liebesman, it stars Megan Fox, William Fichtner, Johnny Knoxville, Tony Shalhoub, Will Arnett, Alan Ritchson, Whoopi Goldberg, Noel Fisher, Jeremy Howard, and Pete Ploszek.
And here’s a little something extra: A Transformers: Age of Extinction TV spot showing Grimlock transforming. That’s right. Grimlock. Transforming. Can you say, “Boo yea!”?
