With Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy featuring Rocket Raccoon hitting theaters on August 1, here's a look back at the movie's trailers.

Trailer 1

This teaser trailer appeared during Jimmy Kimmel Live! back in February and reintroduced the world to Blue Suede's "Hooked on a Feeling".

Trailer 2

For the next trailer, Marvel kept the classic rock hits coming with Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky" (along with some more "Ooga, chaka!", of course).

Trailer 3

The Runaways' "Cherry Bomb" was featured in the third trailer, which gave us the longest look at the team.

One of my friends in Dallas made a Rocket Raccoon fursuit. It's quite impressive!

Well damn it. Rocket Raccoon was never supposed to be American. So much for cultural diversity, eh? Screw that. And Groot's most famous (and only) line was always "I AM GROOT!" with spaces empathised. Except here? "I'm groot!"

Meehhhh. It's one thing to dumb it down for a mainstream audience, it's another thing entirely to rob them of their individuality, uniqueness, and character.

I've never had my interested in a film killed so quickly!

Thank you for warning me off, though, as had I actually gone to see this without being warned I would have been very, very, very depressed. Yep, screw cultural diversity, those British people are all dicks, anyway.

Sigh.

Oh, noses! They hired a double Academy Award nominee to play the nonhuman alien (read: a character who may be unaware of the concept of "British") based on an American species of animal, which totally contradicts one interpretation of the character in a non-canon video game.

Jesus, if you want to fanboy out, at least get angry at Yondu as a villain or the Star Lord/Gamora romance, not the character's blimey accent (which has been noticeably Bronx in other appearances, by the way).
