The latest trailer for James Gunn’s superhero sequel (out May 5) features an expanded lineup of Guardians, Elizabeth Debicki’s golden-skinned alien, and Fleetwood Mac’s rock classic “The Chain.” Also? Snake freakin’ Plissken!

The big question before the debut of the new Guardians Of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer was, Would it feature Kurt Russell? Spoiler alert: it does! But the clip makes us wait for our first proper look at the Escape From New York legend, who is playing father Star-Lord has never met, a.k.a. Ego the Living Planet. We’re not really complaining about the opening, however, which features some nice badinage between Chris Pratt’s Peter Quill and Zoe Saldana’s massive gun-carrying Gamora (“Is that a rifle?” “You don’t know what a rifle looks like?”)

Why does Gamora need such an outsized weapon? It’s likely connected to the team’s new career as galactic mercenaries and to the arrival of an enormous, tentacled creature. Fortunately, Dave Bautista’s knives-equipped alien Drax seems happy to take on the sucker, which Gunn revealed last year to be a multi-dimensional being known as an “Abilisk.”guardians 3 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Exclusive Pictures
