Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn took to Twitter to post the official poster of the movie’s second installment. The poster, which captures the film’s wit with the tagline “Obviously”, features the main cast with two new recruits. Karen Gillan‘s Nebula and Michael Rooker‘s Yondu are seen chilling with our favorite gang of intergalactic misfits in this black and white poster à la Vogue.
Along with the release of the official poster, James Gunn also posted the first ever sneak peek of the sequel on Youtube (as featured above). The clip, like the first installment’s trailers, still plays Blue Swede’s 1968 hit “Hooked on a Feeling”. The background music perfectly fits the scene where Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) foregoes his nickname and attempts to play love doctor to a lovelorn Star-Lord (Chris Pratt).
He then gives him this heart wrenching advice before going in for a hug. “There are two types of beings in the universe: those who dance and those who do not. You just need to find a woman who is pathetic like you.”
Here is the film’s official synopsis:
