'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2': Back-to-Back Featurette Announced; Music Picked by Cast, Here's What We Know
"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" is the much-anticipated continuity to the successful flick released back in 2014. While the second installment is expected to be bigger than the first installment, fans may not realize how big it could get.
According to Movie Web, fans can feast on a double feature of "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" back-to-back, in select areas and theaters, prior to the May 5 launch of the film. Director James Gunn said that both films will be shown on May 4, 2017, at 4:30 PM local time, in RealD3D.
"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" has been rather generous to their fans from the very beginning, recently announcing the soundtrack for the film being made by the film's cast. As per Independent, some of the members gave their own choice of songs, such as Chris Pratt suggesting "Whiskey and You," as well as Gunn picking "She's Gone" by Hall & Oates. This did not make the final cut in the film, however, but songs from artists such as Fleetwood Mac, Jay and the Americans and Sweet are being considered.
It was once revealed that "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" and its cast will take part in the "Avengers: Infinity War" flick, and though it may not completely revolve around them, their participation will truly be vital. They are said to be a part of the universe that takes on Thanos, and fans will simply have to wait and see what comes next.
Experts claim that "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" could have an estimated $160 million minimum opening earnings, going only laps behind "Captain America: Civil War" with $179.1 million. The original cast will return, namely Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Vin Diesel (Groot) and Drax (Dave Bautista). Nebula, played by Karen Gillan, will now be an ally, as well as Yondu (Michael Rooker); with Mantis (Pom Klementieff) now added to the mix.
