They say you can't improve upon perfection, but the latest trailer for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 shows that you can put up a damn good fight trying. The 2014 original remains the best film in the MCU by a country mile, and the best thing about this latest trailer is that it looks like we're just picking right up where we left off.
I'm sure that story-wise some time will have passed, but if Gunn can manage to get right back on the first film's wavelength, he'll be more than halfway to a successful sequel. It's a tightrope walk, to be sure, crafting a great sequel, because too much dwelling on the first film's events or too many attempts to recreate set pieces from the first film is almost always a creative death knell. If any film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has the potential to overcome all of that, it's this one.
So yeah, no pressure or anything James Gunn, but it looks like you're not going to disappoint. Seriously, this film is going to make all of the money, so let's really hope it's good.
