While chaotic action and sarcastic humor had a lot to do with Guardians of the Galaxy’s huge box office success, so too did its soundtrack, chockablock with old-school hits that underscored the film’s joyous, freewheeling energy. As evidenced by both of its trailers and at least one of its posters (see above), the highly anticipated Vol. 2, arriving in May, will embrace that same rock ‘n’ roll spirit — so it’s only fitting that various cast members have now each picked one song that they’d most want to contribute to an “Awesome Mix” tape compilation as part of the new Vol. 2 cover story for Empire (h/t Indiewire). At Empire‘s invitation, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Kurt Russell, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, Elizabeth Debicki, Pom Klementieff, and writer/director James Gunn each select a beloved track that they’d include on an epic Guardians mix-tape.

Very few tentpole extravaganzas nowadays can resist a post-credit “stinger” — the fact Logan didn’t have a tease-the-inevitable-follow-up sequence (in favor of an exclusive pre-movie Deadpool clip) seemed almost shocking. You’ll recall 2015’s Guardians of the Galaxy had a stinger — featuring Howard the Duck, no less — so it’s no surprise to hear that its follow-up also will give viewers a little something extra.
As if hopes were not already high enough for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,’ audience expectations just went through the roof with the news that the upcoming Marvel sequel got a 100% approval rating from a recent test screening. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news, noting that scores this high are extremely rare from test screenings, and unprecedented for Marvel movies: the previous highest-scorers were ‘Avengers Assemble’ and ‘Iron Man 3,’ which reportedly both scored somewhere over 90%.
