      Marvel cinematic universe fans are in for a treat with this summer's rollicking Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, a sequel to the 2014 blockbuster.

      It's a movie you'll want to see, says Chris Pratt, who plays Marvel hero Star-Lord Peter Quill: "I remember where I was when I saw the big movies of my childhood. This is going to be the big movie of your kid's childhood."

      Written and directed by James Gunn, the tale follows Peter Quill and a band of unlikely heroes as they hurtle through space, dodge and sometimes fight angry foes, trip over their own foibles, and wisecrack their way through adventure.

      "This is a movie that is totally dependent on the huge visual effects, on the colors, on the lights—and all of those things can be fully seen in Dolby Vision, which is exciting," says writer-director James Gunn. Director of photography Henry Braham adds: "The Guardians world is so well suited for Dolby Vision because the extent of the color and the richness is just made for the Dolby system."

      The movie's stunning visuals and effects combine with a soundtrack of 70 songs for a space opera that Rolling Stone calls, "a rogue epic that the kids made when the grown ups weren't watching."

      "Every scene in this movie is a giant visual masterpiece, and the sound has to step up and match that," says sound designer and supervising sound editor David Acord. "The biggest thing to us is feeling that full range all around us. Dolby Atmos really helps us achieve that sort of immersive quality."
