It’s “showtime, a-holes,” Chris Pratt says in the new trailer for “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.”
And yes, there is plenty of Baby Groot in this trailer too, but he is being a little mischievous and carries away something that Pratt’s character, Star-Lord, desperately needs. Fans became obsessed with Baby Groot after the first trailer debuted in October.
Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Sean Gunn, Kurt Russell and Glenn Close will all star in the follow-up to the hit Marvel original, which premiered in August of 2014 and became a worldwide success.
The film grossed over $770 million at the box office, with more than $330 million of that coming from the U.S.
In October, director James Gunn said that the sequel will have stronger story lines for women because he is tired of female characters just being “the girl.”
“I am sick of stories where there are a bunch of fully realized male characters and one female character, whose primary characteristic is simply being ‘the girl’ or the personality-less object of some man’s affections,” Gunn wrote in a Facebook post.
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is set to premiere on May 5.
