‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ Releasing In China On Same Day As US; New Poster Unveiled

On Twitter, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn revealed that the film will be hitting theaters in China on May 5, the same day as in the United States. Attached to the message was a new poster, which you can see below.

“So happy Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be in theaters across China on May 5th, same as in the US!”

This is significant because certain films, including the original Guardians of the Galaxy, don’t release in China until months after other places. With a same day release, less people will have to avoid spoilers online, and it will surely help the film’s box office success.

Plot synopsis: “Set to the backdrop of ‘Awesome Mixtape #2,’ Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.”

Guardians Vol. 2 stars Chris Pratt as Star-Lord/Peter Quill, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Kurt Russel as Ego The  Living Planet, Karen Gillian as Nebula, Dave Bautista as Drax, Pom Klementieff as Mantis, Sean Gunn as Kraglin, and Sylvester Stallone in a currently unknown role.
