TAlmost everyone loves the Marvel movies. Not everyone loves them though. But if there’s a Marvel movie for these rare few who don’t like Marvel movies, it’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Now there will be another Marvel movie for these people to enjoy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2. Check out the new teaser trailer.
The first movie took the world by storm in 2014, grossing almost $800 million, way more than anyone expected. While part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Guardians of the Galaxy was based on a Marvel comic series that was far from popular. It didn’t have near the name name recognition as something like Thor, in fact it had no name recognition among mainstream movie fans. So how did out gross 2014’s other Marvel movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the 3rd movie appearance of one of Marvel’s premier characters, by over $100 million?
Guardians of the Galaxy did so well because it was different. If you loved the MCU, then it was a must see. If you can’t stand superhero movies, it wasn’t a superhero movie. If you can’t stand Chris Pratt, there’s WWE wrestler Batista and a talking raccoon voiced by Bradley Cooper. You could say there was something for every movie fan in it and that’s partly why it did so well. The other big reason is that it was really good too. That matters too.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 will be good too. How can it not? Did you watch that trailer? It probably will be even better than the first. After the success achieved with the previous film, I think Marvel will let writer/director James Gunn get real weird with it, and that’s a good thing. The only bad thing is you’ll have to wait until May 5, 2017 to see it.
