It’s hard to believe the humorously named doof named Bright from Everwood made it to the Big Time. And we couldn’t be happier for him. The down to Earth, easy going Chris Pratt has been one of the high points of everything he’d touched, whether as the goofy Andy on Parks and Recreation, the rookie in Moneyball, the only redeeming feature of Jurassic World, the everyman star of The Lego Movie, the wise-cracking cowboy in The Magnificent Seven, or his real-life charity one-upmanship with the other Marvel superhero actor Chris, Chris Evans. Chris Pratt’s taking over lead movie roles and his leading role as Star Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy, to be reprised in next year’s sequel Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2, is why.
If 2014’s blockbuster hit Guardians of the Galaxy is not in your all-time list of Top 5 superhero movies, it’s time to go back and try again.
Marvel Studios dropped both a new poster and the first teaser trailer for the sequel this week, confirming that the entire band is getting back together again for the sequel, sure to have a great 1970s soundtrack to accompany us on our adventure. Pratt, Zoe Saldana’s Gamora, Dave Bautista’s Drax, Bradley Cooper’s Rocket, Vin Diesel’s Groot, Karen Gillan’s Nebula, and Michael Rooker’s Yondu lead the cast. But it looks like they are saving the new slate of stars for the next trailer.
First, check out the first preview and poster for Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2:
How long will it take for Groot to grow up fully again?
The slate of new cast members for the sequel could hardly be more impressive: Kurt Russell, Sylvester Stallone, Nathan Fillion, and Elizabeth Debicki will join the cast.
Guardians of the Galaxy, Volume 2, is in production. Look for it in theaters May 5, 2017.
