I am so excited to say that Marvel Studios’ GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is now playing in theaters everywhere! We attended an advance screening of the movie this week and we loved it! My husband, daughter and I are huge Guardians fans and I have to say, Vol. 2 surpassed the original, which is rare for a sequel! This is the funniest film of the year and the perfect way to start off the summer movie-going season!

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, you are guaranteed to laugh right off the bat once the opening scene finishes - the character Drax steals the show in the way of humor this time around with Groot and Rocket providing comic relief as well. I love seeing how these characters have grown into a family in this sequel. This movie will also give you the feels and possibly cause you to shed a few tears more than once. 

And that soundtrack! Again, my family and I are huge fans of the GOTG Awesome Mix Vol. One soundtrack from the first movie - the music fit the scenes perfectly. In the Awesome Mix Vol. Two soundtrack, it's a great mix of songs, but it's not until you hear the music paired with the story line and specific scenes and listen to the words - WOW! The music certainly reflects the story. I highly recommend getting the Awesome Mix Vol One and Vol Two soundtracks if you are a fan of these movies!

We typically don't tend to splurge on seeing movies in 3D, but this is one movie I am happy we did experience in 3D! The visual effects from the scenery, vibrant colors, fast moving action shots (at one point our daughter Rose commented that it felt like she was on a ride!) and more - it is certainly worth seeing in 3D.

Check out the trailer here:

As you can see in the trailer, we finally find out who Peter's father is and how his parents came together, but also be sure to keep an eye out for other familiar faces popping up in the movie! The movie carries a PG-13 rating which is very accurate because there is a lot more cursing in this movie than the original and a few sexual references. I took Rose (14) and she loved the movie and laughed really hard right along side of me. I cannot wait to take my husband this weekend to see it again and see what I might have missed the first time around.

I cannot stress this enough BUT please stick around until all the credits roll through. Marvel fans do not leave before the end credit scenes and there are FIVE of them. One of the scenes made me look at my daughter with a "mom look" because I swear it's something I say to her will love the scenes at the end!

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is now playing in theaters!! Please sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for all the latest news and behind the scenes glimpses!

In celebration of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 opening, I wanted to share a featurette of Chris Pratt talking about his favorite prop on set (spoiler alert, it’s not a blaster!):
