THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY ARE HERE AGAIN!
Following the release of the first Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 teaser poster this morning, the first teaser trailer has made its way online. It takes a cue from the first teaser trailer for the first installment of the cosmic comic franchise and brings back “Hooked on a Feeling” for the soundtrack.
However, the difference this time is that the teaser trailer has the confidence of a franchise that has already proven itself. Watch the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer below!
Now, Guardians of the Galaxy is my second favorite Marvel Studios film. This teaser trailer only boosts my excitement and confidence, especially since they didn’t even need to show much of anything new yet.
What I love about this teaser trailer is that it doesn’t even introduce any of the new characters yet, such as, Kurt Russell (The Thing, The Hateful Eight) as Ego the living planet, and it doesn’t rely on the adorable little Groot to sell the movie either. The little guy only appears a couple times throughout the footage, one of which is that spectacular slow motion sequence where he’s working alongside Michael Rooker (Slither, Super) as Yondu. Plus, we get to see how Drax the Destroyer is much less rough around the edges, offering an unwanted hug to Star-Lord.
The cast includes, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper are all back for the sequel, and Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn, Glenn Close and Elizabeth Debicki will be joining them as well.
You can probably expect to see this teaser trailer playing before Doctor Strange when it hits theaters in November too, but for now, just watch it over and over online, dissecting every little bit of new footage, great song choice, and gushing about how freaking adorable that little Groot is!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens in theaters on May 5th, 2017.
