‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Trailer Analysis: Abilisk, Knowhere, and Ego Appear!

     October 19, 2016


Earlier today, Marvel released the first sneak peek for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 along with the film’s fantastic poster. Written and directed by James Gunn, the follow-up reunites the titular Guardians of the Galaxy—Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel)—to battle a new threat and search for Peter Quill’s father.

As far as teasers go, this one was just about perfect. It didn’t give away too much but it teased a bunch of things; you just have to dig into it a little bit to see more. With that in mind, we pulled 30 images from the trailer to give us a better, frame-by-frame look at everything packed into the teaser’s short run time. Sure, there are plenty of shots of the title team battling in space, interacting with each other, and each getting their own standalone shot, but there’s much more going on. Things like the space monster Abilisk, perhaps the giant floating head known as Knowhere, and a possible first sighting for Ego the Living Planet.

Curious? Take a look at our trailer breakdown and analysis below to find out more. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 opens in theaters on May 5, 2017 and also stars Kurt Russell, Karen Gillian, Elizabeth Debicki, Michael Rooker, Pom Klementieff, and Glenn Close.

Here’s the official synopsis for Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2:
