Although it’s classified as a ‘Teaser Trailer’, the new piece offers up a great amount of new footage primarily focused around two scenes: Rocket (Bradley Cooper) explaining to Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) what button he shouldn’t press and the team taking on a tentacled monster. There are other great bits sprinkled throughout, including an amusing moment at the end with Drax (Dave Bautista), but it’s Baby Groot that arguably steals the show.
Things are looking great thus far, which is what you’d expect with Guardians director and co-writer James Gunn continuing on at the helm and an expanding plot that finds Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) in search for his father – Kurt Russell, playing Ego the Living Planet (!) – and our heroes going head to head with a big new bad. Yep, take my money.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, also starring Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillian, Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Rooker, Pom Klementieff, Glenn Close, Sylvester Stallone, Chris Sullivan, Nathan Fillion and Sean Gunn, arrives in Australia on April 25 and opens in the US on May 5, 2017.
