Okay. That's better. Much better than the last trailer. But I'm still not sold on this. The movie seems stuck between trying a new spin on things and being formulaic in its recreation of iconic moments from the original. Also, blue face Will Smith seems to be missing from most of the movie. I wonder if it was originally that way, or if they reacted to the negative press and decided to remove some of the CGI.

so they didn't even stick with the genie remaining blue, they had to make his skin tone of the actor close as possible.

As I saw someone say in a review, they've just taken the elements from the original, and stripped it down to this boring, lethargic, pantomime version of its original.
The original animated had not just a well thought out style in animation and design, but everything felt grand, from the towering presence of the main antagonist, to the scope of size the genie could take, something this just is lacking and can't be portrayed in live action. 

The buck really should stop here and people shouldn't see this thing, it just makes the mouse think people want more of this shit..

Well, after thinking about it a bit, it occurred to me that there may be a good reason Genie isn't always blue. Maybe he takes on a natural skintone so he can blend in in public. Originally, Genie transformed into animals like a bee to hide himself.

James Gunn: Disney rehires sacked Guardians of the Galaxy director

Director James Gunn has been rehired to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3 after he was fired by Disney over decade-old tweets that joked about rape and abuse.

It comes after famous cast members from the Marvel series signed an open letter pleading for Gunn's return.

In a tweet he thanked Disney and his supporters and said he is "excited to continue making films that investigate the ties of love that bind us all".

He was fired last July over the tweets that Disney called "indefensible".

Stars from the first two films in the franchise had openly supported Gunn after his dismissal, including Bradley Cooper, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel and Dave Bautista.

The Guardians of the Galaxy series has grossed over $1.6bn (Β£1.2bn) worldwide, with the sequel surpassing the earnings seen by the first film.



According to Deadline, the decision was made by Disney executives months ago after he publicly apologised in July and took blame for the incident.

He will reportedly begin production of Guardians of the Galaxy 3 after he completes Suicide Squad 2, which is being producing by Marvel rival DC, Deadline reports.

Could Disney re-hire James Gunn for Guardians?
Before his dismissal, he confirmed that he had written the script for a third Guardians movie.

I want to say I wish, but I really don't. I know I've seen people give it positive spins, ,but that still seems terrifying to have your entire "future" predetermined like that.

Oh, and while we are talking about Gunn... I think now is as good of time as any to talk about how he was the craziest possible choice for a director for GotG in the first place...

It's just your timeline. There's no mechanism to "predetermine" it. Foreknowledge can be scary, like if you see yourself dying while trapped in a flaming car.
