RACCOONS IN THE NEWS: The Guardians of the Galaxy Trailer


The big news in the world of raccoons this week was that the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy finally premiered.  Of course, I feel it could have benefitted from featuring the real star of the movie a little more but I’m sure some corporate egghead wanted to avoid making things seem too silly.  I mean, it’s already upping the silliness by featuring John C. Reilly and using Blue Swede’s cover of “Hooked on a Feeling.”  However a little weirdness is to be expected from the director of such off-kilter superhero movies as Super and The Specials. Fortunately, the big question of how Bradley Cooper would be voicing Rocket Raccoon (who had a cockney accent in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3) was answered in a brief feature on the character released a couple of days after the trailer.  Although I can’t say I’m too psyched by his name inexplicably being shortened to just “Rocket.”
