I’m not going to waste any more of your time. The full length Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer is finally here! I’ll go ahead and get out of this thing’s way:
This trailer is so damn good! Baby Groot may be the most adorable thing I have ever seen, Gamora and Drax look as bad ass as ever fighting against the giant tentacle monster, Rocket is still a lovable psychopath, and Star Lord has that classic Chris Pratt charm. We also get a small first glance at Mantis, the latest Guardian joining the team. I loved the small snippet we get of her. She looks like she’ll be a fantastic addition to the cast.
Everything about this trailer is great. The action looks thrilling, every single joke lands, and the movie itself is gorgeous. The extended sequences of Rocket scolding Baby Groot for attempting to set off an atomic bomb and Drax laughing hysterically at Star Lord are absolutely hilarious, and help remind us why we love these weird goofballs in the first place.
Visually the film is a step up from the first Guardians of the Galaxy, which was already a damn good looking film. Vol. 2 is the first Marvel film to use the brand new RED Weapon 8K camera, which makes all of the vivid colors in this trailer really pop. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the film has in store.
And once again: Baby Groot is god damn adorable.
I adored this trailer. Every second of it was amazing. The wait until Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters just got a lot longer folks. May 5, 2017 can’t come soon enough.
