After more than a year of anticipation from my husband … the trailer for the new Marvel movie, Guardians of the Galaxy was released Tuesday night. I wondered where he went at 5am the next morning. You thought the Lego Movie song, "Everything is Awesome" was catchy, wait until you watch the trailer for GOTG. I don’t think my husband has spoke three words to me except for, "OogaChaka OogaChaka …. I I I I I, I’m hooked on a feeling…" and "Babe. You gotta watch this!" He hasn’t been this excited over something since … well … probably the last Marvel movie that came out in theaters. The first time he watched Guardians of the Galaxy was when a grainy video was illegally released from Comic-Con 2013. And he hasn’t stopped talking and dreaming about it since.
My husband is a nerd. And I think it’s sexy. He’s opened my eyes to things I never would’ve thought about. Sometimes he knows me better than I know myself. Like riding a roller coaster, trying a new beer, and watching the newest nerd-flicks.
I swore I wasn’t going to watch Guardians of the Galaxy. Especially after seeing the characters in a magazine. I mean, c’mon...
Bautista – a WWE wrestler, MMA fighter, bodybuilder, etc, etc, etc, etc. I remember watching him on Smackdown. Yeah. Who’s the nerd now? Shut up.
Some tree stump looking dude. This is where they lost me. How is a tree stump going to save the universe?
A beautiful green lady wanted for 12 counts of murder. In other words … a bad mamma-jamma.
This raccoon. Yes. A raccoon. A really cute one … until he shows his razor sharp teeth. But he walks, and talks. And he’s kick-ass!
And Andy (I mean Star Lord) – the doughy dude from Parks and Rec. Or so I thought. He’s such a
Together … they call themselves, "Guardians of the Galaxy".
And here’s my favorite part of the trailer (besides the part where Star Lord is stripped down to his skivvies)...
My husband has done it again. He’s found the nerd in me. I’m sooooo excited for all the alien shenanigans that Marvel has created that August can’t get here fast enough. What about you?!?
CHECK IT OUT!!!
Premiers August 1st, 2014 in a theater near you! "OogaChaka OogaChaka!"
