Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 is bigger but not necessarily better

New 'Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2' Sneak Peek Released

Zoe Saldana hates heights, loves Kurt Russell, and thinks Chris Pratt is

The company is also launching a "Be the Guardian of Your Galaxy" sweepstakes at, where fans can win an EcoSport, hometown screening of the movie, one of 150 custom illustrations by a Marvel artist and other prizes. In a recent interview, the star admitted director James Gunn had to fight for his part in the film. In the meantime, we meet the head of Ravager society (Sylvester Stallone), learn that Baby Groot is not very good about following instructions but is willing to chop off people's toes, and drone through a tour of some oddly awful museum dioramas. Now you can get frustrated all over again as Matt Ferguson has created a poster for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 inspired by the classic poster art for The Empire Strikes Back.

If the gang argued with each other last time around, the constant bickering on display here is beyond tiresome, as is the wearing way Quill and Gamora refuse to speak about "the unspoken thing between us". It's not that the sequence, which features Baby Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) rocking out while the rest of his universe-saving companions battle with a tentacled and angry monster, wasn't charming and entertaining; it absolutely was. Rocket successfully regrows Groot from a sapling.

Speaking to website Collider, she said: "The Guardians were on set from the very first day". He added that the characters in the fourth movie will be completely new.

We don't know exactly, but we can assume the main players survive the next couple of Avengers films thanks to something Gunn wrote in that same revelatory Facebook post: "So, yes, I'm returning to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3". The middle work stuck in between the introduction, and what is sure to be the climax and ultimate end of the franchise often times becomes filler content in sequels.

Browns have zeroed in on choice with No. 1 draft pick
Cleveland is now slotted to take Texas A&M star Myles Garrett with the top pick, and not too many analysts expect that to change. Enjoy the week, just try not to take what you hear between now and Roger Goodell announcing the actual selections so seriously.

The Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel's flawed team of intergalactic heroes, are back for more of the irreverent action that helped turn one of Marvel's more obscure properties into a massive box-office hit in 2014. Mantis' own naivety - the only person she's ever met in her life is Ego (Kurt Russell) - makes it so she takes Drax's comments to heart, not questioning them in the slightest. A change in tone, like the jokey vibe that "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" brought to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is refreshing, but it's not a dramatic experimentation with the form. Ego proves to be a dark character who has his own planet and a barrel of secrets to go with it. The music has a unique way of intersecting itself into the storyline as it plays in the movie background.

Probably everyone from Guardians 2.

Like its predecessor, the film's best scene is the opening credits, which foreground Baby Groot dancing to Electric Light Orchestra's "Mr". Of course, the dynamic behind that is the mixtape his mother made years ago lays the emotional groundwork for everything, including Quill's memory of his mother.
