Our Saturday nights just got better with the arrival of the trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!
Set to Sweet’s “Fox on the Run,” Guardians vol. 2 promises more of everything we loved about the first film. It looks like James Gunn is firing on all cylinders both in terms of the script and direction, with the jokes and set pieces coming in fast and hard. What might be most impressive about the trailer is how beautiful new DP Henry Braham’s cinematography looks. Disney’s other big space opera franchise may be back in the mix for the Guardians second outing, but Gunn’s unique vision promises that movie-goers can find equal amounts to love in both franchises. Between this and Episode VIII, everyone’s going to dream of traveling through the cosmos next year.
While we don’t get a look at Kurt Russell’s Ego, the Living Planet, or the film’s villian, we do get our first look at Pom Klementieff’s Mantis, who is sure to shift the team dynamics for the better. Exciting times for the MCU lie ahead! Also, could our love for Groot grow anymore?
Guaridans of the Galaxy vol. 2 kicks off the summer on May 5th, 2017. We’d buy our tickets now if we could!
