GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY ’80s-Style TV Spot is Delightfully Retro

Although it’s one of the biggest movie franchises of today, there’s something undoubtedly retro about Guardians of the Galaxy, whether it’s the old-school soundtrack or the timeless heroism of Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord. Well now, that warm nostalgic feel has been cranked up to 11 in this new ’80s-style ad for the new movie,  Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

The clip is short, simple, and sweet: The 30-second spot begins with a stylized logo for the film, that features a blend of big chrome letters and gold cursive writing that just screams throwback. From there, we get a few bits of personality from the main characters, the clips dressed with some canned laughter and other reactions pulled from your favorite ’80s sitcom of choice. Then each character gets their own title card screen and that’s essentially it. It’s a fun piece of film promotion that, like the movie itself, is good and authentic without taking itself too seriously.

This is just the latest of many early looks we’ve gotten at the second Guardians of the Galaxy movie, which hits theaters on May 5. For instance, we got to sit down with some of the cast, and they told us about their favorite music, and we also asked them about who their favorite characters from the film are. We also checked out Disney’s new attraction based on the movie, and as you probably expected, we were blown away.
