Happy Monday

Have you ever watched something that seems so ridiculously absurd that…it’s kind of awesome?

Jimmy’s Daily Planet (well, Marvel) has something in this spirit with a music video that’s weird, yet oddly addictive. I’m not exactly sure what’s going on, but just be sure to stay tuned until the very end. This suggestion is particularly true if you’re a fan of Marvel generally and Guardians of the Galaxy specifically.

Bottom Line: Marvel Studios likes to have unrestrained fun with its movies and viral advertising.

Second Bottom Line: Like Marvel, I hope you have fun this week (with or without David Hasselhoff).

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.


The Future Guardians of the Box Office?

“The trailer becomes Marvel’s biggest teaser ever and is the second-most-watched trailer of any kind after ‘Captain America: Civil War.'”

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 recently debuted its teaser trailer and it’s safe to say that fans have reacted quite positively to this sneak peak.

“The trailer was viewed 81 million times online in 24 hours.”

With this kind of surreal fanfare for the new sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy, perhaps the best thing to do is watch this online and pop culture phenomenon.

This superhero movie (and Baby Groot) looks like a hoot.

Gunn Pulls First Trigger for Fans

Evidently, the galaxy still needs guarding.

Ladies and gentlemen: The first glimpse into the movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 premiered online this afternoon, courtesy of writer and director James Gunn’s YouTube channel.

With a far-off movie release date of May 5, 2017, there’s little to report beyond the exclusive first-look above. Regardless, there are still a few concrete takeaways at this point:

  • We cannot wait to hear the new movie soundtrack filled with nostalgic rock classics
  • Chris Pratt will remain the box-office king for the foreseeable future
  • And Baby Groot is precious and adorable

Go ahead, give yourself a hug of excitement.
