James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer is currently the third most viewed trailer in history (behind Beauty and the Beast and Fast 8), so it's safe to say that fans are expecting a lot from Gunn and the cast.
The good news is that Guardians of the Galaxy 2 looks to deliver as Chris Pratt had some positive words to say about the movie during a recent appearance at SiriusXM forÂ The Jess Cagle Interview (via EW).
â€śItâ€™s bigger and better than the first movie in every way," Pratt said. "And thatâ€™s saying a lot because I think the first movie is really good.â€ťÂ
Pratt continues by giving credit to James Gunn.Â
"James Gunn is the auteur,â€ť Pratt said. â€śHeâ€™s the man behindÂ Guardians of the Galaxy. He wrote the movie, he directed the movie â€¦ The first one and the second one. So this is completely his vision. In my opinion, there is no equal in Hollywood. I think he is the best Iâ€™ve worked for, and with. And I owe so much to him. Really. And, itâ€™s him.â€ťÂ
So with Guardians of the Galaxy 2 about five months away and not much known about the plot, will Chris Pratt offer up any clues?Â
"I almost donâ€™t want to say anything,â€ť Pratt said. â€śI know that thereâ€™s enough interest for people to go out and see this movie. â€¦ All you need to know is I cried when I read the script. Itâ€™s really, really fun, but thereâ€™s also some genuine, deep emotion that you get to see in this movie. And James Gunn, thank God for James Gunn.â€ťÂ
