Thanks to Amazon.com, you don’t have to turn tricks to scrounge up enough scratch to watch Guardians of the Galaxy, still in theaters, “just one more time, I swear! Really!”. In an announcement that’s sure to make your wallet happy, Amazon has revealed when the Marvel Studios film will be released to home video.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be on Blu-ray and DVD on the website Tuesday, December 9th Life Day.
Right now, all we know for sure is the release date, as Amazon wasn’t exactly forthcoming in details in terms of specials features. However, we do know that Guardians director James Gunn has already alluded to some deleted scenes making their way to the Blu-ray release. For their part, Marvel Studios has been mum on making any announcements concerning making the Blu-ray and DVD available to the public.
Is it just me, or does this announcement seem like a perfect opportunity for Marvel Studios and Funko Toys to team up? Funko has already announced that the company is releasing a Dancing Groot figure on . Couldn’t Marvel and Funko talk about syncing December 31st up release dates and offer Dancing Groot with Guardians for a limited time? Or am I being greedy? *considers if he’s being greedy* Nope, not greedy at all. Make it happen, Marvel!
Guardians is still blasting away at the box office, making $314 million domestically and $633 million worldwide. It’s holding strong to being the highest grossing film of the year and, unless This Is Where I Leave You (which, incidentally, I do want to see) pulls out a miracle, Guardians will most likely hold onto that spot.
Since a Guardians sequel won’t make its way to theaters for almost three years on July 28, 2017, the Blu-ray and DVD, along with the Marvel comic book series and a possible cartoon series, are the only way we’ll get our fix of Star-Lord and company. So, forewarned is forearmed. Start saving your credits for December to order from Amazon either the Blu-ray at $22.99, the DVD at $18.99, or the Blu-ray combo at $24.99, just in time for Christmas, Hanukkah, Festivus, or the Wookie
