It's slobs versus alien snobs in the new Guardians Of The Galaxy trailer

Like the first teaser for Guardians Of The Galaxy—in which Marvel introduced its super-team of super a-holes to the sounds of Blue Swede—this second trailer remains heavy on both late-’60s pop songs and very modern self-awareness. “So here we are: a thief, two thugs, an assassin, and a maniac,” Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord says against a soundtrack of “Spirit In The Sky,” rallying his team of misfits with a Bill Murray-worthy speech that positions Guardians as part of a proud tradition of slobs versus snobs movies, like an intergalactic Police Academy. Of course, one of these slobs is a talking, ball-scratching space raccoon, while the other is a tree with the expressiveness of Vin Diesel. But when it comes down to it, aren’t we all?
