Everyone is excited about Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2. The film comes out May 5, 2017, but we haven’t seen a trailer for it. I’m sure we will soon… you know, possibly attached to something like Rogue One: A Star Wars Story? At least that’s my guess. That or randomly during the Jimmy Kimmel Show. Still, fans want some sweet, sweet trailer loving, and because the internet has ruined us all as humans, some have decided that they can be down right abusive about it. It’s those people that prompted the film’s director, James Gunn, to take to Facebook and vent a little bit.
I appreciate and am grateful that so many of you want to see the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 trailer. I am fortunate that so many folks are interested in our film. However, the schedule for the trailers has been decided upon and no matter how many times you request on social media that they come out faster – which has lately been happening dozens of times a day – what is done is done.
And, yes, usually this is just people being enthusiastic and begging for the trailer, or telling me how they’re going to die if they don’t get it, or simply asking when it’s going to come out even though I can’t answer. That’s all fun and fair – again, I appreciate the interest. But when I post a photo of a much needed getaway to Palm Springs and someone comments “Why aren’t you working on the goddamn Guardians trailer?” or I post a tribute to the passing of Gene Wilder and someone comments “Where the fuck is the trailer, asshole?” — well it gets a little uncool.
I don’t know why I’m saying this. If you have the attention span to read all this you’re probably not the jerk cursing at me about a trailer on social media. But I guess it makes me feel a little better.
Hope you all have an amazing day.
