The Guardians of the Galaxy are returning on May 5th, and fans can’t wait to see their next grand adventure unfold. Last time we saw them on screen it was for a solid 122 minutes, which felt like exactly the right amount of time to become acquainted with all of the members and to begin seeing the bonds form between them as they became a team. Now, thanks to Event Cinemas, we know that the sequel will run for 137 minutes. While this only has an extra 15 minutes on its predecessor, we aren’t going to be seeing all of the characters fleshed out one by one and it allows for more time to focus on the team as a whole and the endeavors they will be undertaking.
Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn (Slither). The film marks the return of the original Guardians, including Chris Pratt (Jurassic World) as Peter Quill/Star-Lord; Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora; Dave Bautista (Spectre) as Drax; Vin Diesel (Furious 7) as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper (American Sniper) as the voice of Rocket; Michael Rooker (Jumper) as Yondu; Karen Gillan (The Big Short) as Nebula; and Sean Gunn (Gilmore Girls) as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff (Oldboy), Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby, Everest), Chris Sullivan (The Knick, The Drop) and Kurt Russell (The Hateful Eight, The Thing).
