Were closing in on the return of the band of misfits we all fell in love with in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. They’re back with volume 2 of the mixtape and a whole new adventure that will require them to save the galaxy again. According to Chris Pratt, who plays Star-Lord, the new movie will be the “greatest movie in the history of movies.” He is, of course, prone to hyperbole. In Pratt’s defense, the movie has been testing amazingly well.
Earlier this week Director James Gunn revealed the new IMAX exclusive poster for GOTG2. Which has perhaps the cutest Groot yet on it.
