Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 Movie Trailer Review
I am a huge fan of the Guardians of the Galaxy, especially Groot. In case you don’t know, Groot is a tree-like humanoid. Actually, I love Vin Diesel, even if it is just his voice. However, as we see in the trailer, we have Baby Groot now. Now, at the end of the 2014 movie, we all saw a glimpse of Baby Groot dancing away, after everyone thought he had died. However, here is my question: Is this the same Groot or is Baby Groot actually Groot’s son? Hmmmm…something to think about!
In the opening seconds of the trailer, a voiceover says, “The fate of the universe lies on your shoulders.” Wow! What a way to open the trailer, with a deep, powerful statement. This is apparently being said to the superhero team.
The absolute best part of this trailer was about 10 seconds into it. Rocket is trying to tell baby Groot not to touch the red button, or the bomb will explode, and everyone will die. Then, Rocket asks Baby Groot to repeat what he said, and all Baby Groot can say is “I am Groot,” while pointing to the red button, which annoys Rocket. This scene is absolutely hilarious.
If the 2014 movie’s success is any indication, this film is sure to be a huge hit. It grossed $773 million worldwide. Also, it was the highest grossing superhero movie of 2014 and the third highest grossing movie overall of 2014. In case you are wondering, the highest grossing film of 2014 was Transformers: Age of Extinction, which grossed just over $1 billion, followed by The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, which grossed $700 million.
