New ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Trailer: Chris Pratt Got Absolutely Shredded (again)


The Guardians of the Galaxy team roster is getting a bit bigger—and more jacked.

The new Super Bowl trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 dropped on Sunday, showcasing director James Gunn’s unique take on the titular superhero team in the sequel to the 2014 Marvel classic.

But one thing that remains the same from the original? Chris Pratt is shredded once again. (The first time the Men’s Fitness cover star played Quill back in 2014, he got into fantastic shape with this workout and diet.)

Dave Bautista’s Drax looks huge, too. (Check out nine of his most epic Instagram workout moments.)

Set to Fleetwood Mac’s classic track “The Chain,” the trailer features every member of the team getting in on the some action: Peter Quill a.k.a. Star-Lord (Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel)—plus some new appearances from the arrow-whistling Yondu (Michael Rooker), android Nebula (Karen Gillan), and the mysterious Mantis (Pom Klementieff).

So why do we love it so much? The first Guardians film broke the mold on what a superhero film could be—and if this trailer and new poster are any indication, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 looks like it’ll be more of the same deranged fun:


Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, directed by James Gunn and starring Pratt, Bautista, Diesel, Saldana, Cooper, Rooker, and Gillan, will be released on May 5, 2017.
