At the Eventim Apollo in London, on Monday 24th April, the stars and director of the latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 – gathered to premiere the film to an ravenous audience of invited press and excited competition winners.
From a DJ set, consisting of tracks that could’ve been pulled from Peter Quill’s own Walkman, to an introduction on-stage from director James Gunn, presenting his cast of Pom Klementief (Mantis), Kurt Russell (Ego), Dave Bautista (Drax), KAREN GILLEN (Nebula), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Michael Rooker (Yondu) and Chris Pratt (Peter Quill / Star-Lord), it became a glittering night to showcase the film to its European audience.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is directed by James Gunn who also wrote it along with DAN ABNETT. The film will produced by Kevin Feige and distributed by MARVEL STUDIOS. Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 continues the team’s adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage. The film stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, KAREN GILLAN, Sean Gunn, Glenn Close, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, and Kurt Russell. Release date is scheduled for May 2017 in the US, but we get it here in the UK on the 30th April. You’re welcome.
