"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" just did something no other Marvel movie has done before
Just when you thought you couldn’t get more excited for the next installment of Marvel’s Guardians franchise, there’s more good news. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 got a perfect score in a test screening — which is, so far, the highest score a Marvel movie has ever snagged. That’s just downright the highest score any film can snag.
Now hold up, what’s a test screening? Test screenings are early screenings shown to audiences to get an idea of how the film will perform. Even Iron Man 3 and Avengers only got scores in the 90s out of 100. But Vol. 2 walked away will a 100. You know Baby Groot is excited.
The film won’t hit theaters until May 5th but after the success of the first Guardians of the Galaxy and the continued success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films in general, it feels like the pressure is mounting on each film to be better than the ones before. So a high audience testing score is certainly a reason to celebrate! Although, according to Deadline, Marvel uses mostly friends and family for their test screenings in order to prevent leaks. Of course, that could result in higher scores than random people.
Director James Gunn has been posting lots of fun behind-the-scenes photos on his Instagram account which has only increased anticipation for the film. It looks epic.
Audiences are certainly excited about the film as well tweeting their excitement every time a new image, teaser, or tidbit of information is released.
Check out the trailer for Vol. 2 below to get an even better idea of what’s in store for the Guardians this time around. It looks so fun we’re starting to believe that perfect score could be 100% accurate!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters May 5th so you can decide for yourself whether that perfect score was justified. Just watch out for Baby Groot and that button in the meantime.
