Kurt Russell Discusses Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

The Golden Globe-nominated Silkwood and Hateful Eight actor shared his thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at the premiere of Deepwater Horizon.

Asked about the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel, the Living Planet, Kurt Russell appeared excited about the project. He stated that he was “impressed” by the footage of the film he saw at Comic-Con and teased that the movie told a “very complex” story.

The most unexpected part of the actor’s remarks was when he claimed that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was “stronger” than the first movie:

The emphasis of the sequel appears to be family. Specifically, Quill’s relationship with his father. “It’s more connected to human issues,” said Russell, “family issues, parental issues, and issues that sons and daughters have with their moms and dads … Peter’s character in this one, he’s got dilemmas and he’s got decisions to make that are not just about whether to save that thing or that person. This is about finding out who you are, where you come from, and where you’re going.”

Russell echoed his co-stars’ enthusiasm for the sequel, suggesting that the film is even better than the original: “I was really impressed that all of the people on the set were so excited because they felt this was so much stronger than the first one.”

Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
