We recently learned that the first teaser trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 - the highly-anticipated sequel to Marvel Studios and writer/director James Gunn's 2014 cosmic adventure hit - had been classified, meaning that it would soon drop online too. The timing makes sense, seeing as the theatrical release for the next film installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Strange, is right around the corner - and presents the perfect opportunity for Marvel to get the drum beating louder for the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel.
Well, if Gunn only just unveiling a stylish black and white poster for the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel wasn't enough, the teaser trailer for the film (albeit the international version - meaning, non-English dubbed) has now arrived too. You can check it out above... then head on over HERE for the English-language teaser.
Seeing as this is a teaser for the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, the preview focuses more on reminding everyone of what they loved about the first movie - the Awesome Mix Vol. 1 soundtrack and interactions between characters such as Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) - instead of offering more revealing details about the film's storyline. One thing that both the film's teasers and poster do emphasize, though, is that the characters of Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Yondu (Michael Rooker) have larger roles in Vol. 2 than they did in the first Guardians (something that fans who've been following development on the sequel no doubt already picked up on).
Here is the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (which also references the character who reportedly drives the film's larger storyline: Ego the Living Planet [Kurt Russell], Star-Lord's father):
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.
