Now Available Digitally and Blu-ray on Aug. 22
There’s no doubt that Disney is trying to bring more Marvel into their parks. While they can’t go full-on Marvel fanatic in the Orlando park (due to Universal Orlando still having the bulk of the Marvel characters), the other parks are free and clear to bring in whomever they want.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe (or MCU) is an impressive undertaking. It spans superhero franchises as tiny as Ant-Man to behemoths like The Avengers, weaving together everything from Dr. Strange and his mystic powers to Iron Man and his billionaire antics.
Here is a small sampling of beneficiaries of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (which, with 15 films since 2008, has earned over $11 billion globally): movie theaters interested in selling tickets; the good people at Disney;
Marvel Music And Hollywood Records Present Marvel Studios’ Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2: Awesome Mix Vol. 2
Marvel Music/Hollywood Records are releasing the digital versions of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Awesome Mix Vol. 2 songs-only album and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 original score album by composer Tyler Bates (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “John Wick Chapter 2,” “Watchmen”) today, April 21st. The film opens in U.S. theaters on May 5, 2017.
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is filled with great action, humor and performances, but it is also infused with a new mixed tape and soundtrack, a dynamic that resonated deeply with audiences in the first film as evidenced by the success of the soundtrack album. The Grammy®-nominated “Guardians of the Galaxy” soundtrack reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, becoming the first soundtrack album consisting entirely of previously released songs to top the chart. The album was certified Platinum by the R.I.A.A.
