Marvel has owned the first week of May—basically the start of the Summer Movie Season—almost every year since 2008, and they’ll have it once again with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which should kick the summer off with a bang. The movie looks ridiculously fun, and while Guardians is no longer the giant question mark it was back in 2014, I’m willing to bet that writer-director James Gunn still has more than a few surprises up his sleeve. I’m excited for Marvel to get cosmic again, and I like these characters so much that I don’t really mind if the film connects to the larger MCU or not. I just want to see the Guardians be a lovable team of rogues going on interplanetary adventures.
I’m pleased to announce we’re giving away 30 admit-two passes to the Atlanta screening of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. To enter for a chance to see the movie early and for free, send an e-mail to Collider.Passes@gmail.com with the subject line “GUARDIANS 2”. The screening is on Monday, May 1, 2017 at 7PM at Regal Atlantic Station so don’t enter if you think you’ll be unavailable. Multiple entries from a single person will disqualify all entries from that person.
