Seeing how director's and production teams bring the cinema magic to life on the big screen is always entertaining, and director James Gunn shared some of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 magic with fans on Instagram.
If you've seen the trailer for Guardians Vol. 2, which currently has a 4.48 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings, you'll recognize the ship in the picture as the Milano. The ship moves gracefully through the air on the screen, but in reality, the cockpit portion is seated on a platform without the wings, which are added in post production. Gunn shared the photo on his Instagram Instagram account with the caption "The Milano, in trouble."

It will all be okay, though, as long as Groot doesn't hit the death button. Granted, that doesn't look likely to happen either, so really everyone is just doomed.
