James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy is one of the highest grossing films of the year. Though the film has grossed $586 million worldwide, Guardians has yet to open in other international markets like Japan. To help promote the film, Japan has been releasing trailers and TV spots, just like any market would. But Japan doesn’t market the film the same way we do, in fact they have their own brand of quirkiness.
So they have released a trailer that focuses on raccoons and trees as seen on nature channels before switching over to Rocket spraying bullets and a walking tree who can only say “I am Groot.” There’s also the fact that the Japanese voiceover is energetic and enthusiastic. Hit the jump to check it out.
You must have seen Guardians of the Galaxy, but if you haven’t, you might as well check out what all the hype is all about. Guardians of the Galaxy opens in Japan on September 13.
