Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is not as fresh and unexpected as Vol. 1 – how could it be?

Marvel Studios has begun principal photography at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, Georgia, on Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” which is slated to hit U.S. theaters on May 5, 2017. The production will shoot at Atlanta’s Pinewood Studios.
Produced by Guillermo Del Toro (does the man never sleep?), Jorge R. Gutierrez’s Book of Life is an animated film that takes us to places we’ve never been, visually.
