New Guardians of the Galaxy 2 trailer sees baby Groot kick ass and try to blow everyone up

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 isn't messing around with its trailers. After a kick-ass teaser trailer (not to mention a rock 'n' roll poster), we've now got a second look at the Marvel sequel. Once again, baby Groot is the star of the show as he does his best to blow up the rest of the Guardians (in the cutest way possible).

Other standout moments include the Guardians fighting what can only be described as a giant space squid, Star-Lord having the worse high school-style embarrassing moment of his life, and Groot taking down a bad guy more than ten times his size. Don't underestimate that little dude. 

It's not the same trailer I saw at San Diego Comic Con - you can read all about that footage in my breakdown - so perhaps we'll see that in the new year. 

Unsurprisingly, the trailer is already getting an overwhelmingly positive response from fans on Twitter...

Directed by James Gunn and starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, Kurt Russell, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will hit the UK on April 28, 2017 and the US on May 5, 2017.
