James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy had a lot going for it, but the film’s secret weapon easily came in the form of Chris Pratt and his humorous yet heroic take on Peter Quill. The man simply exudes charisma on a level that could potentially rival that of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. As it turns out, Chris Pratt isn’t just a great movie hero; he’s also a philanthropist who wants to bring you to the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Check out the video below to get more details
As you can see from the above video, Chris Pratt has announced an Omaze contest in which one lucky winner can earn the chance to become a Guardian of the Galaxy in the upcoming sequel. The video follows Pratt as he provides a set tour of the upcoming sci-fi epic, showcasing numerous costumes, ships, and weapons that will eventually make an appearance on the silver screen. Behind the scenes videos can get a bit technical and boring at times, but Pratt keeps everything lighthearted and fun in a way that only a man child like himself can.
Although Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 remains shrouded in mystery, the video provides us with a fairly thorough look into the aesthetic of the movie. Overall, it’s plain to see that the next Guardians movie will maintain the outlandish visual aesthetic that made the first film so beloved. Star-Lord’s mask, blaster pistols, and even his ship (The Milano) will all return; they seem updated, but not changed in any significant way.
Aside from the insight that the video provides us into the film, it also serves as a distinct reminder of how much we love Chris Pratt. Guardians of the Galaxy features almost no characters with mainstream appeal, but it thrived due to the charisma of the lead ensemble led by Chris Pratt. He maintains just the right amount of immaturity and brash bravado that allows him to inhabit the role of Star-Lord – both on and off screen.
If you’re a fan of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, do yourself a favor and check out the video above. Even if you don’t want to donate and enter the competition, the video itself is chock full of glorious Chris Pratt humor, and that’s something none of us can turn down.
We will bring you any and all information related to the upcoming release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as it becomes available to us. The film will hit theaters on May 5, 2017; stay tuned for more details!
