The latest trailer for James Gunn’s superhero sequel (out May 5) features an expanded lineup of Guardians, Elizabeth Debicki’s golden-skinned alien, and Fleetwood Mac’s rock classic “The Chain.” Also? Snake freakin’ Plissken!
Why does Gamora need such an outsized weapon? It’s likely connected to the team’s new career as galactic mercenaries and to the arrival of an enormous, tentacled creature. Fortunately, Dave Bautista’s knives-equipped alien Drax seems happy to take on the sucker, which Gunn revealed last year to be a multi-dimensional being known as an “Abilisk.”
What the world needs now is… An adorable Baby Groot sorting out the sound system and prompting Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” to start playing on the soundtrack.
…yes it is! Kurt Russell finally makes an appearance.
“After all these years, I’ve found you,” announces Ego.
“And who the Hell are you?” asks Star-Lord.
“I’m your dad, Peter,” comes the reply.
Is there a dry eye in the house? There isn’t in this writer’s abode, that’s for sure.
