We are a little over a month away from the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. This is a movie I’ve been waiting for ever since I saw the final stinger from the first Guardians of the Galaxy. Guardians of the Galaxy will always have a special place in my heart because it was the first Disney trip I ever took that was Marvel related. The interviews with the cast were something that I will always remember fondly. My favorite interview of the whole event was with Dave Bautista. He was one of my favorite characters from the first film and I think they are upping the funny factor with him in the second movie.
Earlier today I posted a video where I talk about the differences I am seeing in the big two cinematic universes. In the video below you will see why I love the Guardians so much. In one minute you know who they are and what they can do. The whole movie is going to be incredible.
In the latest Guardians of the Galaxy trailer we see the revelation of Peter Quill’s father, the baddies of the film, a giant monster and more baby Groot. He’s more of a toddler Groot at this point, though.
After what had to me the worst, for me because of self diagnosed Misophonia, teaser trailer in which Drax crunches, slurps and generally mouth attacks his food around a campfire as the rest of the Guardians stare in disgusted disbelief, we get the real thing. We get a great trailer with even more fun action, music and humor. Family is going to be key to this movie. The idea of family and the bonds of family as well as what makes someone part of a family. It is reflected in the line of the trailer that says, “We aren’t friends… we’re family.” That is a perfect way to describe the dynamic of the Guardians of the Galaxy. I cannot wait for this movie to arrive in theaters. I utterly loved the first one and want to see what they do the second time around.
This time I’ve done the smart thing and picked up all the LEGO sets that I could find, I didn’t do that with the first movie and am so kicking myself. I’ve also seen the toys starting to hit the stores and there is a great Nerf blaster that is Rocket’s. I totally want it and the upgraded Peter Quill, Star-Lord blasters.
