There were plenty of great movies released this summer, but our favorite was Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The band of misfit heroes came back for another feature that built on the success of the first film without recycling the formula that made the original film successful. Marvel delivered another hit with another great soundtrack as only they can, and now you can own the film on blu-ray beginning on August 22nd and the digital copy on August 8th.
The announcement of the home version of the movie was released in true Guardians fashion with an 80s themed video reminiscent of those late night greatest hits compact disc ads that you viewed as a kid. Presented by the old Disney Buena Vista Entertainment logo, the video features two extra cheesy actors in their best 80s attire, complete with polka dots and a sweater tied around the neck. We also get the classic scrolling list that features the characters being read with the best fake enthusiasm the actors can muster. Of course, they also had to include an 800 number to place your order. The best part is that it actually works… complete with a special message from Baby Groot. I’ll give you one guess as to what he says!
There are several exclusive offers from different retailers, and each includes their own special offers. Each includes special features such as deleted scenes, director commentary, bloopers, and featurettes including Showtime: The Cast of Vol. 2, In The Director’s Chair With James Gunn, The Visual Effects of Volume 2, and a campy music video starring David Hasselhoff or as he is better known… “The Hoff”. Early orders also receive four unnamed additional bonus features.
