The Guardians of the Galaxy Screening!

10489856_10101702398471767_6126923288228522261_nYesterday I had the awesome opportunity to attend a special screening of the new Guardians of the Galaxy flick, thanks to the lovely people at Disney Parks Blog. This is our second DPB meet up ( the first for the Monstrous Summer 24-hour Disney party.) If you haven’t applied for one of their events, you should keep an eye out because they’re wonderful. We closed down the pub Saturday night so we were running on four hours of sleep when we arrived at Downtown Disney to check out the film. Markus was very happy to debut his Star Lord costume for the first time, and I got to wear one of my punny GotG reference shirts. I was a little too tired to venture into my Rocket Raccoon costume so that’s saved for GenCon in a few weeks.

When we got to the theater, the Disney Parks Blog team did a great job of making everyone feel awesome with free popcorn and drink tickets, and limited-edition 3D glasses. The glasses, themed after the different characters from the film, are really solid and comfortable. They’re meant to be kept! After obtaining our wristbands, we stopped for photos in front of the large cardboard movie poster. Markus was pulled away for pictures with fellow attendees and the media staff. It was really fun seeing all of hard work pay off as I watched (and swooned) from the sidelines. The blog team had cute costumes as well, including this awesome AWESOME MIX VOL 1 tape costume.

Marvel Teases New ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Footage

I will come out and admit that I really don’t know much about Guardians of the Galaxy other than the epic cuteness/bad-assery that is Rocket Raccoon. It’s one part of the Marvel universe that I haven’t ventured into much, so I’m really excited about the upcoming movie and seeing the film with “virgin eyes.”

Marvel recently released this teaser (it’s SO SHORT) to drive comic book crazies insane as we wait for what looks to be another promising hero flick. It doesn’t hurt that Chris Pratt, who is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors, takes the lead as Peter Quill and my beloved Raccoon is voiced by Bradley Cooper. Other favorites such as Vin Diesel and a very bald, yet still gorgeous Karen Gillan also take part making this one heck of a cast.

So what do you think? Guardians of the Galaxy is scheduled for release on August 1, when you can expect an epic themed party at The Cloak & Blaster (hint, hint.)

Oh Captain, My Captain

So remember that time one time when Patrick Stewart stopped being one of my favorite actors?

Yeah, neither do I.
