We’re just 17 days away from the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and the onslaught of marketing for the Marvel Studios sequel is in full swing. New TV spots are hitting the web all the time, and two more have just arrived.

In case you didn’t hear, last weekend Adult Swim surprised viewers by delivering the surprise debut of the third season premiere of Rick and Morty on April Fools’ Day. It replayed over and over for a few hours, and then it replayed again the next day after an all day marathon on Adult Swim’s streaming site. Since then, it aired again on Adult Swim so that everyone’s series recordings could pick it up for everyone who couldn’t catch it before.
Those who were lucky enough to catch Rick and Morty were treated to a series of promos to highlight the fact that the show will officially return for its full third season this summer. Using various styles of animation, the promos were wild and wacky, featuring various characters from the animated series in some peculiar situations.

Yesterday brought the announcement of Alien Day 2017 along with a batch of new TV spots promoting the release of Alien: Covenant this month. One of those TV spots aired during the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournamentj last night and it included the hashtag #emohemekat. If you follow that hashtag on Instagram, it takes you to a viral account with only one post, and that post just so happened to be an extended spot featuring new footage from the movie that hints at the fate of a certain character from Prometheus. Since the reveal is a bit of a spoiler, we’ll wait to discuss it until after the jump.

This year brings a new Alien film to the big screen, with Ridley Scott directing yet another installment of the franchise he began back in 1979 (and has had plenty of ups and downs in the years since). Alien: Covenant will hopefully bring the franchise from the slight slump that came with the prequel Prometheus, especially with as many as four more movies potentially in the works.
Hyping up the release of Alien: Covenant, we have a new batch of TV spots that feature some snippets of new footage from the sequel. In addition, fans who celebrated the newly named Alien Day on April 26 last year will be able to enjoy another 24-hour celebration of the film franchise this year. There will be a live streaming event, an interactive trivia challenge, worldwide screenings, all-new product launches, special reveals and more.

The next chapter of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise doesn’t arrive until the end of May, but Disney is making a big marketing push for the high seas adventure. The Final Four will have the eyes of millions of sports fans this weekend, so that means we get a new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales TV spot. This one gives us just a little extra snippet of Orlando Bloom as Will Turner, who now appears to be among a band of cursed pirates, meeting Brenton Thwaites as his son, Henry Turner. However, there is surprisingly little Johnny Depp, which hopefully means the series goes back to being more of a proper ensemble adventure.

The release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is still over a month away, but Marvel Studios knows you can’t wait to see this team of misfits back on the big screen, so tickets are now on sale today. In order to convince you to get those tickets immediately, they’ve released an extended TV spot with new footage from the sequel, which sees Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista) taking flight in a jetpack, Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper) living up to his namesake by flying alongside Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), and Baby Groot (Vin Diesel) sitting on the shoulder of Gamora (Zoe Saldana). If that’s not enough hype for fans, there’s also a set of character posters that kinda look like trading cards.
