We recently learned that Logan is the highest grossing movie of 2017 so far, and while Beauty of the Beast is likely to dethrone it over the next few weeks, it’s easy to imagine Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 beating them both when it finally reaches theaters in May.
Early tracking certainly points to the sequel being a hit for Marvel Studios, and seeing it reach $1 billion at the worldwide box office feels like a guarantee at this point, especially given the over-performance of the first instalment back in 2014. Throw in the fact that you’d have to be dead inside to not want to flock to the theater to watch Baby Groot in action, and it’s pretty clear that this film is going to make a boatload of money.
Today, the marketing campaign for James Gunn’s upcoming blockbuster continues apace and has delivered another TV spot for us to feast on. While it may be light on new footage, it’s still a whole lot of fun to watch. Marvel not spoiling too much of the sequel is no bad thing of course, especially when so much of the plot still remains a mystery, and it’s really rather refreshing going into a blockbuster without having the entire thing spelled out to us in advance. Whether the studio will be able to keep things that way remains to be seen, but so far, they’ve been doing a great job at showing just the right amount.
Take a look at the new TV spot for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 up above and be sure to let us know what you’re looking forward to seeing most in the film by dropping us a comment in the usual place.
