Early Reactions To ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2’ Press Screenings Are In
The countdown continues until Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 2 makes its way into theaters. The first installment can be debated as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s best superhero film to date because it captured the essence of what the MCU stands for; spectacle, memorable character interactions, stunning visuals, lovable characters and lots of laughs until the credits roll. Since the first trailer dropped, and Baby Groot stole our hearts with his innocent yet devious demeanor, geeks around the world have been twiddlng their thumbs until it finally debuts on the big screen. Thankfully, we have some news that will hold you over until then… or it might just make you even more anxious! Sorry?
Official reviews of the film won’t be released until April 24th, but Marvel Studios held a special press screening on Monday night and allowed jouranlists to post their spoiler free first reactions on social media and the excitement is coming in left and right. Check out some of the reactions below:

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 2. is very fun. Takes the EMPIRE "split up your characters" strategy. Drax is a hoot. Baby Groot steals the show

I am allowed to say very little about GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL 2. But I can say this: I am Groot. WE are Groot.

I say without hyperbole: #GotGVol2 is MCU at its very best. Grand adventure with intimate stakes. Uses every damn color in the crayon box. 🌈

Despite a few less than impressed tweets, the majority of early reactions have been positive and match up with the reactions back in February when Marvel hosted a test screening and received a one hundred percent from audiences. It’s true that you can’t win them all but Guardians will definitely win more than enough to dominate the box office when it hits theaters. Do these first reactions make you more anxious for the film? Let us know in the comments below.
