Pretty much guaranteed for success is Marvel’s next big release, Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2. A few months after the first movie’s events, the Guardians go in search of Peter Quill, aka Star-Lord’s mysterious father. Other details are scarce, but Groot – the living tree with a limited vocabulary – is now baby Groot. Former foes Yondu (Michael Rooker) and Nebula (Karen Gillan) join the Guardians and we meet new characters Mantis and Ego. Ego is usually portrayed in comics as a living planet, but here Kurt Russell plays his human form. Once again the soundtrack is chocked full of 1970s and 1980s hits, and initial reactions have it down as surprising, colourful and fun.
