It probably takes a lot to stun an actor who has appeared in franchises like The Fast and The Furious, Riddick, and XXX, but Vin Diesel looks totally gobsmacked after watching some footage from the new Guardians of The Galaxy 2 film.
Vin Diesel uploaded a video of his reaction after seeing the extended version of the footage that debuted at Comic-Con this year. During the first few minutes of this Facebook video, he is completely at a loss for words asking for a moment to get it together. When he finally does, he says…
“It’s weird having a friend like James Gunn, because he’s your friend, and then you watch what he does and you go ‘My friend is a genius.’ Not just great in a particular profession, but a genius, someone who takes 100 plus blank pages and creates something that blows your mind, from the typewriter to the screen. I’m blown away because I not only want to see the whole movie now, I want you to see the whole movie.”
The hype just got real.
Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they unravel the mystery of Peter Quill’s true parentage.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is written and directed by James Gunn. The film marks the return of the original Guardians, including Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord; Zoe Saldana as Gamora; Dave Bautista as Drax; Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot; Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket; Michael Rooker as Yondu; Karen Gillan as Nebula; and Sean Gunn as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan and Kurt Russell.
