WHAT’S BEHIND THE CAMERA?

Not long after the events of the first film, the newly-formed “Guardians of the Galaxy” – comprised of half-human Peter Quill aka Star-Lord (Pratt), green-skinned mercenary Gamora (Saldana), vengeful warrior Drax the Destroyer (Bautista), gun-toting raccoon Rocket (Cooper) and a youthful version of the tree monster Groot (Diesel) – struggle to cope with actually being a unit, especially when they are called upon to protect the galaxy from another major threat, and also when they come across Quill’s biological father, the ancient and mysterious cosmic being known as Ego (Russell)…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

They’re some of the most popular characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to date, and now the Guardians of the Galaxy are back with more aliens, more space action, and plenty more tunes on the soundtrack.
