All about the hype train, as your favourite Marvel space outlaws/comedy troupe are back! Today, Marvel has dropped their first look at Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, in both trailer and poster form!
Consider me surprised at how much of a teaser this trailer really is. It’s rare (for a non Star Wars film) to have such a random selection of shots from the film, but it gives audiences a taste of whats to come… which on all accounts is all your favourite things from the first film. Ooga Chaka indeed.
Along with the trailer is the slick first poster. What a cool gang! Good to see that it looks like Yondu and Nebula have joined the team on a more permanent basis. Don’t forget to catch every-bodies favourite baby Groot hidden at the bottom. Between the teams badass look, and the cocky tagline, this is one poster that screams ‘We know our audience, and we know what we’re doing’.
It’s possible we may see more from the Guardians with Doctor Strange releasing this week, and Marvel’s obligatory end credit sequences. If not, this trailer will surely hold audiences over until May next year. Clap Clap Marvel, your marketing is one point with this one.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is once again directed by James Gunn and sees all the core actors (Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker) return, along with Kurt Russell, playing Ego the living planet.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 hits theatres 27 April 2017. We’ll be there and so will you.
