‘Guardians’ sequel gives heroes new ‘million-piece puzzle’
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) — The stars of “Guardians of the Galaxy,” the Marvel movie about a rag-tag group of intergalactic heroes, landed in Hollywood to debut their return in a much-anticipated sequel that sees them embark on another high-stakes space adventure.
In “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” space heroes Peter Quill, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot find themselves pursued by a villain and once again are given the task of saving the universe.
They are joined along the way by Gamora’s petulant sister Nebula, space pirate Yondu and Mantis, an empathic alien. The film is scheduled to open in theaters on May 5.
”This is a million-piece puzzle and when you sit back and see the mosaic put together you get this one incredibly even, fully executed idea,” Chris Pratt, who plays Peter Quill, said at the red carpet premiere on Wednesday.
Zoe Saldana arrives at the premiere of her movie ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ at the Dolby Theater in California on Thursday. AFP
