Guardians Of The Galaxy

When Marvel announced that "Slither" and "Super" director James Gunn would direct "Guardians Of The Galaxy," it was a surprising choice. Gunn was a filmmaker who preferred to deconstruct genres rather than play into the usual tropes, but it turns out that was exactly the kid of spirit Kevin Feige wants for the space adventure.

"There were scenes in his early draft...the scene that closed out the 17-minute [IMAX preview], when Peter Quill says ‘I have a plan…’ That scene was in an early draft. And that scene goes on. Just the five of them, sitting in the circle you see, for eight minutes just talking and bantering back-and-forth. And it’s awesome. It’s great," Feige told IGN. "My recollection is that in one of the early drafts we said ‘This scene is awesome—the whole movie should feel like this scene.’ And he went ‘Oh great, I was nervous about that scene. Because that scene is the most me, and I was afraid that you guys would say ‘Ooh that’s too long. Too much talking’.’ And we said ‘No, that’s great. That’s the movie. These characters.’ And I think that hit him more than I appreciated at the time, as an endorsement of his instincts and style."

And those qualities certainly seen in this latest clip, which takes a moment of danger, and turns it into an opportunity for Chris Pratt to turn on the charm, and spend a few moments quipping, and verbally tap-dancing his way around the scene. Very James Gunn. But how does the film hold up? Well, we'll have our full review soon, but our own Oliver Lyttelton saw the film, and he liked it quite a bit. See his brief thoughts on Twitter below, followed by the clip, new animated motion poster promo and Comic-Con poster.

"Guardians Of The Galaxy" opens on August 1st.
