The ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Trailer Is Here, and Baby Groot Steals the Show, Obviously
We’ve done our waiting, and now it’s finally here — feast your eyes on the first official Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer! All of our favorites are back, plus a few new faces and one very big tentacle monster. This trailer keeps the rock music vibe of the first movie alive with their choice of Sweet’s “Fox on the Run,” and it looks just as fun, if not even more fun, than its predecessor.
Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Baby Groot (!!!) are back for round two, and they’re adding a new member to the club: Mantis, who’s a part of the Guardians team in the comics, but who’s been absent from the movies until now. She has the power to read people’s emotions just by touching them, as she does to a hapless Peter Quill, revealing his… feelings for a certain green-skinned, red-ombre-haired member of the group. Gamora doesn’t seem too fazed, though, which could mean that the feeling is a little mutual, or it could mean that it’s just Gamora not being fazed by anything, as usual. And Drax’s reaction is PRICELESS. Who knew such a huge, terrifying guy could have such a joyful laugh?
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters May 5, 2017.
