Rocket Raccoon steals the scene, once again
They may be the universe’s best hope at being saved from the likes of Ronan the Accuser and Thanos, but the “Guardians of the Galaxy” will have to come up with a plan first. Unfortunately, fearless leader Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) only has about 12 percent of a plan brewing.
“It’s barely a concept,” Gamora (Zoe Saldana) helpfully puts in. But as always, it’s Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and Groot (Vin Diesel) stealing the scene. The former by being angry and sarcastic with the most real fake laugh ever, and the latter by being sensitive and logical while cannibalizing himself.
This dysfunctional team of criminals and misfits don’t quite have it all together yet but if this clip is an indication of the kind of humor that will pepper the film, it’s looking like a very entertaining ride.
“Guardians of the Galaxy” was directed by James Gunn and will be released Aug. 1.
