'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'

According to American actor Chris Pratt, who plays the wise-cracking space hero Star-Lord, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" will likely surprise people with its heart.

"All you need to know is I cried when I read the script," he told ComicBook. "It’s really, really fun, but there’s also some genuine, deep emotion that you get to see in this movie."

The film, written and directed by James Gunn, is set two months after the events of the first film and will involve Star-Lord finally discovering the identity of his alien father. As for what's likely to be another hit soundtrack, Gunn recently revealed that people should expect the unexpected.

"In this one, we have some really incredibly famous songs, and then some songs that people have never heard," he said. "So, it's a much more diverse soundtrack."

"Guardians Vol. 2" will be released May 5, 2017.
