Test screenings in the movie business are not everything, but they can be an early gauge of the quality that is to come. Should this theory stick true, then Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is in a healthy position ahead of it's opening on May 5, 2017.
Following the release of a cool new Pink Floyd-inspired pink and purple poster for the upcoming Marvel blockbuster, the filmmakers and studio are riding high off their current 100% rating with the test screening reviews. This might not result in widespread acclaim upon the debut of the title across theaters in the US and the globe, but it has given Chris Pratt enough confidence (with tongue firmly in cheek) to declare the sequel a genuine classic in it's own right.
More SB Rings Than Tom Brady: Pratt
Drawing some odd comparisons in the world of sport, extreme games and movies, the action star made the bold statement on Facebook to argue that GotGVol2 will blow the audience's socks off.
"On May 5th the greatest movie in the history of movies is coming," he began modestly. "There has never been and will never again be a movie like this. Seriously. Ever heard of Citizen Kane? We're much better. Seriously. Our movie just tested at over one million points. Rotten tomatoes already has it at 234% fresh. #GotGVol2 will win every movie award AND about 39 Olympic gold medals in swimming, gymnastics, the skiiing event with the gun, x games, snowmobiling and everything. It will win the World Cup and about 7 super bowl rings, sorry TOM Brady. This movie will fry your brains and lift your spirits."

Chris Can't Help But Reference Jurassic World
Continuing the epic brag, the 37-year old Parks and Recreation actor believed that the reincarnation of dinosaurs as a result of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will actually be a good thing. A statement that literally runs contrary to the rebooted franchise he is the new face of, courtesy of Jurassic World.
"James Gunn will be elected president of the world. They will add the faces of the guardians to Mount Rushmore for sure. We're gonna get a planet. May 5th will become a national holiday. Everyone will get pregnant. Candy will fall from the sky. Global warming will stop. Dinosaurs will come back to life. Which unlike some movies might tell you, is actually a really good thing. Because they won't flip out and kill people instead they'll be your awesome pets. So basically get your tickets as soon as you can. Don't be the only person on the planet who doesn't see this movie. Humbly, Starlord"
You heard the guy. Buy a ticket already!
