Wednesday is the worst day of the week. Wait, stop, I know what you’re thinking. “But Tarryn,” you’re thinking. “Monday is the worst day of the week,” you’re thinking. And it is, because it’s Monday. So is Tuesday, because it’s the day between Monday, the worst day of the week, and Wednesday, the worst day of the week. It’s a collaborator. It’s the worst day of the week. And Thursday is the worst day of the week, because it’s not Friday. I love Fridays. But today isn’t Friday, it’s Wednesday. And Wednesday is the worst day of the week, obviously, but this Wednesday isn’t as bad as other Wednesdays because we’ve got new Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Alien: Covenant trailers to help us get through it.
Debuted on the Jimmy Kimmel Live TV show last night, the new Guardians trailer features the gang, some Fleetwood Mac, and – oh, that one is kind of a spoiler. Don’t watch it if you don’t want to find out who Star-Lord’s dad is. Unless it isn’t actually his dad, and that’s the big twist in the movie. CALLING IT NOW.
And, yes, I know Prometheus was an unadulterated catastrophe and why did they take off their helmets and for fuck’s sake, Charlize, just run to the side of that thing (etc.), but you know what? Alien: Covenant is looking hot. Plus this trailer has a Xenomorph in it, so you have to watch it.
