Select members of the press were in Los Angeles tonight for a screening of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. While we weren’t there, we have certainly kept an eye on Twitter (the press were allowed to tweet reactions following the film, though there is an April 24th embargo on reviews) to see what we could glean about the film.

While the trailers played to the general audience’s love of Rocket, Groot and the humor that is now inextricably linked with the goofy gang of losers, it seems that the film is made of MUCH more than that. Check out a sampling of tweets from this in attendance:

Press screenings such as this are also accompanied by a Q&A with the cast and crew (one of the reasons that James Gunn decided to make this afternoon’s announcement of his return to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3), so we should expect some details about the film, and maybe even something vague about Vol. 3, to make it around the Google machines soon. While the press enjoyed a screening tonight, the rest of us only have 2 or 3 weeks (depending on where you live) to wait!

What do you think of these reactions? Let us know in the comments below!
