The upcoming sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy appropriately titled Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 won’t be out in theaters until May 5, 2017 but the good news is everybody from the first film will be back for the second.
The news comes courtesy of Guardians director James Gunn, who confirmed the news via Twitter on Wednesday.
While it’s no secret that Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista were already on board to return for the sequel, no one knew for sure about Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper, who both did voiceover work for the first movie but didn’t actually appear in person in the movie.
You can sleep well tonight because Diesel will be Grooting it up once again in the sequel while Cooper will reprise his role as gun toting mini-hero Rocket Raccoon.
Filming on the sequel isn’t expected to start until next year, but Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will definitely be one of the most highly anticipated films coming out in 2017.
Yes, the Guardians are all returning. https://t.co/fVYLDIpv6c

I’ve added scans from the July 24th issue of Entertainment Weekly, which has a feature on Joy. And scans from Best Movie July 7th, which brings a feature on Aloha. Thanks Claudia.
The first teaser for Joy has been released, the movie will be out on December 25th, 2015, here’s the trailer and captures:

JOY is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.
Bradley Cooper is heading back to war, aided by his cinematic band of brothers. The American Sniper actor will produce Warner Bros.’ upcoming Ghost Army, alongside Sniper producer Andrew Lazar and The Hangover director Todd Phillips. Deadline first reported the news, and a rep for Cooper confirmed his involvement to EW.
The film will be based on the recently-published book, The Ghost Army Of World War II: How One Top-Secret Unit Deceived The Enemy with Inflatable Tanks, Sound Effects, And Other Audacious Fakery, by Rick Beyer and Elizabeth Sayles. The story follows the true events of a top-secret group of artists and designers—”Cecil B. DeMille warriors,” as they were called—recruited to fool the Nazis during World War II. Using diversions such as inflatable tanks, phony radio traffic, and dummy soldiers, the troops managed to save thousands of Allied lives by tricking the enemy into thinking their flimsy ghost army was the real thing.
Beyer also wrote and directed a 2013 documentary about the unit (see trailer below), but Henry Gayden (Earth To Echo) will script the screenplay for the feature film.
While there’s no confirmation on whether Cooper will star in Ghost Army, the actor’s upcoming schedule is crowded with on-screen projects. Cooper will next be seen in John Wells’ culinary drama Adam Jones, followed by Joy, which reunites him with Silver Linings Playbook’s Jennifer Lawrence and David O. Russell. In addition, he’s reportedly in talks to make his directing debut with another Warner Bros. film, A Star Is Born, where he would also take on the lead. The most recent news comes on the heels of the announcement that Cooper will produce the Syfy adaptation of Hyperion with Phillips.
Bradley and his co-star Emma Stone attended a photocall and special premiere screening of “Aloha” yesterday in London. Bradley is currently in town because he will start The Elephant Man on West End next week. We have added the high quality images in our gallery.
Bradley made an appearance on Good Morning America yesterday alongside his friend Anthony Daniels to raise awareness for bone marrow donations. We think the interview is definitely worth your time and be sure to head over to DeleteBloodCancer.org and BeTheMatch.org for more information. Also be sure to spread the word using the #AnthonysFight hashtag on social media.
Anthony Daniels is 23 years old, yet he’s battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma – a cancer of the lymphatic system — for the fourth time.
“Each time I beat cancer, it puts more of a toll on my body,” he said. “And every single time it comes back, it gets worse.”
A boxing enthusiast, Daniels knows he needs to keep fighting the disease. He has been looking for a bone marrow donor for a year and a half.
Daniels has a special supporter in his corner. Actor Bradley Cooper appeared alongside him on “Good Morning America” today to raise awareness about the man’s fight.
Bradley attended his Sardi’s Caricature Unveiling yesterday in New York. We have added the high quality images in our gallery.
Bradley attended the “China: Through The Looking Glass” Costume Institute Benefit Gala yesterday in New York. It appears he skipped the red carpet so we only have a few high quality images so far of him arriving outside the venue and at the Yahoo! after party. We will look out for more.
