They call it a teaser trailer but at a little over two minutes it shows a lot and my take is the movie looks awesome. I can't wait to see it. As far as the plot synopsis go, the gang is back fighting cosmic evil and Star-Lord apparently discovers that his father is Ego, the … Continue reading Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 – Full “Teaser” Trailer
