We have too many trailer teases nowadays. You think YOU have it bad as an audience having your social media streams flooded with these teases. Fifteen seconds here, 15 seconds there. It’s a rough way to live. But imagine having to write about them day in and day out, and you can only imagine what it’s like on our end. Do these 15 seconds actually matter, when all said and done? Probably not. So you can imagine our surprise when we actually get a trailer teaser worth our time. In this case, it comes in the form of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer tease.

Most trailer teases feature little micro-snippets of what we can expect in the actual trailer. In true James Gunn form, he doesn’t give us a snippet, but rather a short scene that manages to tell a story in 27 seconds. What scene is that, you ask? It’s a scene of Drax sipping soup. Yup, that’s pretty much it. The kicker of it, however, is Drax is a loud chewer. So much so that it’s bugging everyone around him.

We can only speculate as to how this falls into play, but we know that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will see our heroes annoy the heck out of each other. In fact, it’s that attitude that leads to their separation in the first place. In an interview earlier this month, producer Jonathan Schwartz stated:

“…the Guardians have been living in it for a few months – it’s not really ship made for that many people. So the extent that their high egos and rock ‘n roll sensibilities are starting to intrude on the family dynamic. That’s sort of reflected in the state of the Milano when we find it.”

We’d like to think that this scene happens early on in the film just prior to the Guardians’ separation, when they’re at their wits’ ends with each other. We’ll see how this all turns out, but the pleasant surprise with this teaser is that it doesn’t seem like the scene will even be in the actual trailer tomorrow.

We’ll have to wait and see.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters on May 5, 2017.
