Video: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' TV spots showcase character origins

There are still two more weeks before Guardians of the Galaxy cruises into theaters, but there are two more new TV spots to pad its landing with audiences. For those counting at home, that’s now 22 teasers, trailers, featurettes, extended looks, and TV spots for the big-budgeted Marvel gamble—at least according to the film’s YouTube page.

By now, you must know the renegade characters and what’s at stake—save the galaxy. The new clips explain why members of the self-proclaimed Guardians might have a score to settle with Ronan, the cloaked villain threatening their existence. And Drax the Destroyer proves to be idiom-deficient. READ FULL STORY

'Guardians of the Galaxy's UK trailer turns down the music -- VIDEO

The first wave of teasers and trailers for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy emphasized the comic book movie’s most eccentric qualities, a wild bunch of universe-saving criminals that include a tree, a raccoon, and a green-skinned Zoë Saldana. If you never read Guardians in print, it didn’t really matter, according to the studio; instead, it chose to play up the “these aren’t you older brother’s superheroes” angle. “Hey, we’re playing Blue Swede’s ‘Hooked on a Feeling’ and Norman Greenbaum’s ‘Spirit in the Sky,'” the clips blared. “That’s how you know this movie is cool!”

Perhaps the Guardians are even less well-known in the U.K. — or perhaps those songs are — because they now have a straightforward, ironic-music-free trailer that gives the best primer yet for what this movie is actually about. Chris Pratt’s scoundrel thief gets to deliver all the rah-rah speeches, but Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) is the wise-ass scene-stealer.

'Jurassic World': Chris Pratt revs up the dino franchise -- PHOTOS

By the time Jurassic World opens in theaters one year from today, June 12, 2015, some people might have a hard time remembering Andy Dwyer. Chris Pratt’s adorably dense Parks and Recreation character made him a star, but with Guardians of the Galaxy set to launch on Aug. 1, Pratt is positioned for big-screen stardom. Just check out the first hunky photo of him from Jurassic World, director Colin Trevorrow’s sequel, which picks up the story 22 years after the original blockbuster. Pratt plays a scientist conducting behavioral research on raptors, but said scientist isn’t wearing his white lab-coat when he takes his motorbike out for a spin. Is it me, or does he resemble a young Robert Shaw?

In one of the other two photos (below), which The A.V. Club first posted, Bryce Dallas Howard looks calm and collected as she faces Pratt’s rugged scientist. It’s unclear exactly who Howard is playing, but judging by her hair, dress, and demeanor, I’m guessing her character is cold, calculating, and possibly morally compromised. And of course, there are also scared children to dangle in front of the dinos, like goats for the audience at feeding time. READ FULL STORY

'Jurassic World' director fights back against spoilers by confirming them

In 2014, big-budgeted movie productions live under constant fear of unauthorized leaks: camera-phone set photos that reveal a mysterious new villain, pirated footage, and Wikileaks-level plot descriptions that pop up on the Internet. One preventative strategy is complete radio silence, the kind of omerta that director Christopher Nolan demands on his films, like this fall’s Interstellar. Then there’s Colin Trevorrow, the director of the 2015 Jurassic Park sequel, Jurassic World. His approach to the Internet spoilers that broke last week was to engage with a journalist, lament that unfortunate development, and then confirm and clarify the details. Um, thank you?

GUARDIANS-OF-GALAXY.jpg

Marvel Studios is offering another peek at what space saga Guardians of the Galaxy will deliver when it hits theaters on Aug. 1. And by peek, we mean a blink-and-you-miss-it teaser.

The 24-second clip is a preview of the film’s second trailer, scheduled for release Monday at 1 p.m. ET on Facebook. A live Q&A with cast members Chris Pratt, Dave Bautista, and Karen Gillan and director James Gunn will accompany the world premiere of the new trailer.

Until then, enjoy Pratt’s crazy-ripped physique, which appears to get as much screen time as any character in the new teaser: READ FULL STORY

'Guardians of the Galaxy' clip: Chris Pratt's rep does not precede him -- VIDEO

GUARDIANS-OF-THE-GALAXY

Everything I’ve seen of Chris Pratt’s character in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has reminded me of Han Solo — if Han Solo had been played by Ghostbuster‘s-era Bill Murray. As the self-proclaimed Star-Lord, he’s sarcastic, charming, and mildly delusional.

In a new clip that aired on MTV yesterday, Star-Lord, a.k.a. Peter Quill, gets caught red-handed trying to steal a mysterious space orb. It’s the same scene that fans saw in the trailer, but this is the first glimpse at his rocket-boot getaway.

Guardians of the Galaxy opens Aug. 1.
