‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ Lands With A New Super Bowl Trailer

The gang is back in a big way in the latest look at Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2. An extended trailer for the highly-anticipated sequel dropped during the Super Bowl LI pregame show on Sunday. Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and of course baby Groot are ready to protect the universe once again — even if they botch things along the way.

The latest spot features the team kicking ass and taking names while Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” soundtracks their exploits. (If the movie wasn’t already marketed directly to my personal tastes, it sure is now.) Of course, it wouldn’t be a Guardians teaser without some snark, and that is here in spades as well.

From Drax not warning somebody about an incoming projectile before they get hit, to Rocket and Groot swearing-without-actually-swearing because this is a family movie, the same qualities that made everybody fall in love with the first film and make it a runaway success are back. Since the team is already formed and used to each other at the beginning of this sequel there won’t be any time wasted with them meeting each other or warming up to the idea of working as a team to guard the galaxy. Which means there is plenty more time to spend on actual adventures, and based on this trailer that is going to pay off in many ways.

The movie lands in theaters May 5th.
