Chris Pratt took a break from his busy schedule filming Jurassic World 2 to appear on ‘Jimmy Kimmel live’ this evening, bringing along with him a trailer for his next film, the highly anticipated Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. You can watch the trailer below:
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
This is far from being the first time a trailer from Marvel Studios debuted on the popular late night program – Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch also appeared on the show last April with a new trailer for Doctor Strange.
James Gunn returns from the previous film as both a writer and director on the project. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn and Glenn Close reprise their roles as Peter Quill/Star Lord, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Yondu, Nebula, Kraglin and Nova Prime from the first film. Newcomers to the franchise Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Kurt Russell, Tommy Flanagan are set to portray Mantis, Ayesha, Taserface, Ego and Tullk respectively. Sylvester Stallone has joined the film in an undisclosed role, rumored to be a member of the nova corps.
The second volume in the breakout Marvel franchise flies into movie theaters on May 5th, 2o17. The Guardians of the Galaxy will also appear in the studios most ambitious project yet when Avengers: Infinity War hits movie theaters on May 4th 2018. The massive film recently started filming in Atlanta.
