As I watched the clock at work go by, I noticed on Twitter that”Baby Groot” started trending. Not knowing the reason, I clicked on the hashtag. There waiting to make my entire day was the new trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2! My coworkers and I ceased everything we were doing. Even a couple customers came over as we hit the play button and watched it together.
I know everyone is loving Baby Groot, but Drax was the surprise hit of the first film for me. Dave Bautista shined in the role bringing straightforward humor and some of the best one liners. Again, he brought the best moment of the trailer for me from screaming “Screw you!” at the sky and laughing without hesitation at Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) at the end. While we didn’t get a chance to see Kurt Russell or Sylvester Stallone in the trailer, I loved this more than the teaser dropped a few months ago.
Check out the new trailer below!
Written and directed by James Gunn, the film stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper, along with Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, and of course Russell. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters May 5.
