I’ll complain all day about “franchise movies” and superhero stories ruling everything around us, but when you get James Gunn to direct Chris Pratt in a film about a talking tree and a murderous raccoon, you can have my money and my panties (better wring them out first). I like my comic book movies that tend more towards weird and silly over SO BADASS BRO, and James Gunn brings humor, weirdness, and a healthy subversive streak (also: spiky hair). Meanwhile, the latest Guardians of the Galaxy trailer stars buff Chris Pratt, a raccoon voiced by Brad Cooper, Vin Diesel as a tree who can only say his own name, wrestler Batista playing Drax the Destroyer, Zoe Saldana, a ridiculously costumed Benicio Del Toro, John C. Reilly and a soundtrack that includes both “Spirit in the Sky” and “Hooked On A Feeling.” Yep, sold. Opens August 1st.

I like the music, but would it kill you to include some Spin Doctors once in a while?
