  1. James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy 2

    The joke that opens Guardians of the Galaxy 2, where the Guardians fight a giant monster in the background of the scene, out of focus, while Baby Groot dances obliviously in the foreground, is a joke you’ve seen before, in, say, Hellboy, or Men in Black, or the Q scene in a James Bond film. “Background chaos ignored by foreground character” is a dependable gag, but it only ever needs to last a few seconds. In Guardians of the Galaxy 2, it goes on for as long as the opening credits need it to, which is about five minutes. So, how much you’ll get out of the film may depend on how long you can stomach a joke for. →

  2. Trailer for The LEGO Movie

    I love the stop-motion-style animation and the trailer itself has some decent laughs. Does feel like a slightly lesser version of what Traveller's Tales have been doing for years with their LEGO videogames though, particularly with the "Including, but not limited to..." line which seems to come from the "Yay! Those shows existed!" school of comedy. →
