Chris Pratt, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2’ blows the audience away


LOS ANGELES – “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2” is going to explode in the theatres as a “supernova” according to star Chris Pratt.

“This ups the ante for the last time in every way and form you can imagine,” he said at the film’s Los Angeles premiere, comparing it to the first part. “It’s more fun, it goes faster, it’s richer, it has more dynamic stories, deeper emotional pull…we get to spend more time storytelling and less time on the giving of expository back-story and the original story. It is emotionally driven, character driven, relationship driven, epic space supernova explodes and it’s bigger, lighter, faster than any movie you’ve ever seen.”

Kurt Russell, who is a newcomer to the cast, told Fox News that there is pressure to live up to the other actors in the film.

“You feel like you’re the team and you feel that you want something that is going to add than subtract. So that’s the pressure and that’s the fun.”

He has also acknoledged that the science fiction genre is loved by audiences far and wide.

“The genre is there, you can put anything in, what you put into it is what they are going to love,” he said. “And I think she’s the love of these people, these characters, and I think James (Gunn, director) does a great job of assembling a cast that is just right for what it is supposed to be. And it was fun to join.”


Pratt added that, the technology has further advanced the capabilities of all science fiction films.

“I think that as a result of technology and what we can do with computers and animation, and how much it has evolved, it truly is the opening up of the world, in space. In fantasy you can create whatever you want, now you have to not only shoot a set…We get to create worlds.

The film also stars Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Sylvester Stallone and Bradley Cooper.

“Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2” premieres May 5.
