For a while we were all in a dry spell of trailers. Usually by this time of the year, we would’ve been exposed to cool trailers for upcoming films. But sadly the only thing we’ve had of late was a trailer for the reboot of The Mummy. “Yawn”
Thankfully, that all changed when this scrumptious trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 dropped a few minutes ago and not a moment too soon! It may be labeled as a teaser trailer, but don’t let that fool you, we had one already back in October. That one was an actual teaser that didn’t reveal anything about the plot, just a few quick glimpses of our favorite space heroes (sorry Luke and Kirk).
Actually this trailer follows the same format. Only this time instead of Star-Lord/Peter Quill and Drax, the featured characters are the scene stealers Rocket Raccoon and Groot. Rather, that is Baby Groot and the adorable little seedling upstages the caustic Rocket with his squeaky voice. Of course, he only utters “I am Groot” but it’s all in the delivery! Not only is Baby Groot so cuddly but he’s a little badass! Look at the way he chases after the bad guy, it’s the stuff of a Looney Tunes cartoon!
This time, more action and thrills are shown, including giant space monsters and spaceship battles. Plus, we get our first look at Mantis and she looks awesomely seductive and alien! Guessing from this trailer, we’ll probably get a couple more character-centric trailers. Gamora is next, along with Yondu and Nebula. Maybe they’ll mix it up and feature Star-Lord again as he meets his father, who happens to be Ego the Living Planet as played by the great Kurt Russell. Anyhow, this trailer just whets our collective appetites for next summer and it’s clear that Marvel Studios has another winner in its hands with Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. So, hey Marvel, how about giving us a look at Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok? Don’t worry, those are sure to drop soon as are trailers for hotly anticipated movies for 2017.
But for now, kick back and enjoy the Rocket and Baby Groot antics in the latest trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. It’s very funny and we could all use a good laugh in light of recent events in the real world.
