At Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia the shooting of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 started. The continuation of the worldwide cult success of 2014 will start on 27 April 2017 in German cinemas.
The screenplay was once again written by creative head James Gunn ("Guardians of the Galaxy", "Slither"), who will also take over the direction again. Together with him all leading actors of the first part return, including Chris Pratt ("Jurassic World") as Peter Quill alias Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana ("Star Trek Into Darkness") as Gamora, Dave Bautista ("James Bond 007 - Spectre") as Drax, Vin Diesel ("Fast & Furious 7") and Bradley Cooper ("Joy: Alles außer gewöhnlich") as original voices of Baumwesen Groot and Waschbär Rocket, Michael Rooker ("Jumper") as Yondu, Karen Gillan ("The Big Short") as Nebula and Sean Gunn ("Gilmore Girls") as Kraglin. New to the cast are Pom Klementieff ("Oldboy"), Elizabeth Debicki ("The Great Gatsby," "Everest"), Chris Sullivan ("The Knick," "The Drop - Bargeld") and Kurt Russell ("The Hateful Eight," "Fast & Furious 7").
In front of the acoustic background of a brand-new "Awesome Mix Vol. 2" the wackiest heroes of the galaxy now set off on new adventures, while they have to reveal the secret of Peter Quill's true origin.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is produced by Marvel Studio President Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Nik Korda and Stan Lee as executive producers. The creative crew, which director James Gunn has gathered behind the camera, includes among others Cameraman Henry Braham ("The Golden Compass"), set designer Scott Chambliss ("A World Beyond"), editors Fred Raskin ("The Hateful Eight") and Craig Wood ("Pirates of the Caribbean: At the End of the World"), triple Oscar nominated costume designer Judianna Makovsky ("Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone"), Oscar nominated visual effects supervisor Chris Townsend ("Avengers: Age of Ultron"), stunt coordinator Tommy Harper ("The Return of the First Avenger"), co-producer and first assistant director Lars Winther ("The Return of the First Avenger") and six-time Oscar nominated Special Effects Supervisor Dan Sudick ("Marvel’s The Avengers").
The predecessor "Guardians of the Galaxy" inspired critics and viewers around the globe two years ago and flushed a total of over 770 million dollars into the coffers, making it the most successful debut film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film's soundtrack - Peter Quill's Awesome Mix Vol. 1, featuring David Bowie, Jackson 5 and 10cc - was awarded platinum and nominated for a Grammy® award.
