It’s official – we’ve got our first look at ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’… and it features a very familiar retro cassette player.
‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista recently took to Instagram along with director James Gunn to reveal that rehearsals for the upcoming Marvel sequel have begun…
And it looks as though Star-Lord has even had chance to suit up.
“Rehearsals for #GotGVol2 with @thejudgegunn, @michael_rooker, & #vonspears,” said director James Gunn as he revealed the first behind-the-scenes image on Instagram.
“Using Bautista as an example of good acting during rehearsals for #GotGVol2,” he added, along with another rather awesome candid shot. “With @zoesaldana, @prattprattpratt and @thejudgegunn.”
But it’s Chris Pratt’s contribution that gets us the most excited…
“Feels good to be back in action on Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2!!! I can’t even tell you how excited I am,” he said. “Ok I’ll try. I’m ecstatic. I’m bursting with joy. I’m overwhelmed by feelings of enthusiasm, joy, gratitude, conviviality, camaraderie, elation, exhilaration.”
“I just used an online thesaurus for these words. I suggest trying that. That way instead of saying “I’m very excited” say, “I’m exhilarated.” Never too late to learn words. The pen is mightier than the sword. I never got that. I could whoop someone’s ass if I had a sword and they only had a pen. WAIT!!! Now I get it. Cause you could use a giant pen with a dagger on one end? And a gun on the other end? No? Whatever. Point is… Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. Is going to be the greatest spectacle film of all time. This is not…. bear with me… using online thesaurus….. Hyperbole! This is not hyperbole!”
‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ stars Chris Pratt as Star-Lord… and while details remain rather thin on the ground, it’s rumoured that we may finally find out the identity of his dad – with Kurt Russell said to have landed the mysterious role.
Zoe Saldana returns as Gamora, with Dave Bautista as straight-talking warrior, Drax. Michael Rooker will be back as space pirate Yondu with Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper presumably heading back to voice Groot and Rocket Raccoon.
‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ heads to cinemas on 28 April 2017.
