‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ First Sneak Peek Debuts

The guardians are back in business and battling baddies in the first sneak peek for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” After all, “the galaxy won’t save itself.”

The teaser debuted on Wednesday morning — an hour after the film’s poster reveal.

In between action-packed scenes of chaos and destruction, set to Blue Swede’s 1968 earworm “Hooked on a Feeling,” Dave Bautista’s Drax teaches Chris Pratt’s Star-Lord a thing or two about love.

“There are two types of beings in the universe: Those who dance and those who do not,” he says. “I get it, yes. I am a dancer, Gamora is not,” Star-Lord responds.

“You just need to find a woman who is pathetic … like you,” Drax clarifies, before forcing a bear hug on him.

The teaser closes with an adorable shot of baby Groot and Rocket smiling.

Director James Gunn stressed on Twitter that “the sneak peek just released is NOT a teaser-for-the-trailer; it’s a totally separate piece from the eventual trailer(s).”

He may be barely visible, but baby Groot also steals the spotlight in the first poster for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”

Gunn revealed the “teaser poster” for the highly-anticipated Marvel Studios sequel on his social media accounts, including Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Aside from the tiny Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel), the poster features Pratt’s Star-Lord (aka Peter Quill), Zoe Saldana’s Gamora, Henry Rooker’s Yondu, and Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper), while Bautista’s Drax and Karen Gillan’s Nebula stand in each corner, partly out of frame. The gang is shown leaning against a wall, ever so nonchalantly. Obviously.

When asked on Twitter why Mantis (played by newcomer Pom Klementieff) was absent from the poster, Gunn said “We’ll see her soon. As I said, this is a teaser poster.”

He then tweeted a closeup of the tiny anthropomorphic tree, for those who missed him holding onto Star-Lord’s boot.

Other new cast members include Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, and Kurt Russell.

The film is produced by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Nik Korda, and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” hits theaters on May 5, 2017.

  1. Umm, talent name correction. The piece surely means Michael Rooker. It seems to cross the incorrect first name with the title character of a 1990s film starring Mr. Rooker–Henry: Portrait of A Serial Killer. No doubt the new Guardians will be far more fun than that fictional bio.

    Much as the first movie, one of the most overrated movies ever made, this one looks largely green screen shot, filled with 2 dimensional and badly colored CG work, but no matter, the tastes in cinema are at one of the crudest lows, so little doubt that this two hour CG sizzle reel will make a lot of money. But that still does not mean it will ever be a good movie, much as the first one.
