Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Director Teases How They Make Great Trailers

Anyone who has ever been burned by trailers know that it's hard to trust in them when trying to get the feel of a movie. Some trailers put almost all the action up front, so we're left with little to work with in the movie. Others put only a little that may not be enough as teasers.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn, on the other hand, has his own recipe for his latest movie. In an interview with Sci Fi Now, he says that a lot of the footage seen in the trailers that we've had so far don't really give too much away--and for good reason:

"We worked really hard to create a series of trailers that don't give away much of what's in the movie. It's been very, very difficult because almost every single thing you see in the trailers… is from the first 15 minutes of the film. Oh yeah, almost all of them."

He says that the reason for this is to make sure that people would still want to watch the movie after seeing the trailers. At the same time, they want to keep an air of mystery, seeing as how there's already a lot known about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in the first place.

One thing that we don't really know much of is what character Sylvester Stallone will play. We've seen no clue whatsoever in any of the trailers, and had it not been officially announced, we'd never really have any idea of the casting.

However, Gunn did hint that his character will be an important one.

"He's primarily a very important character to Yondu, played by Michael Rooker, who is honestly one of the stars, if not the star of Guardians of the galaxy Vol. 2. Vol. 2 is as much Yondu's story as it is anybody else's and so his relationship to Sylvester Stallone, which in a way is another sort of fatherly relationship, is a part of the overall story."

It seems like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is looking to flesh out a lot of relationships of its characters.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be out in theaters on May 5.
