Patrons shopping online for movie tickets at Nueplex Cinemas’ website are in for a good laugh.
Earlier today, Reddit user MBilalZubairi posted a screenshot of the movie theater chain’s website. On it, a sprawling banner advertises Walt Disney Studios’ Mary Poppins Returns. As expected, a smirking Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) peaks out from the right side of the banner. On the left? A scowling Michael Rooker as Peter Quill’s daddy, Yondu, from the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films. You can check out the banner below:
Fans will recall how excited Yondu got towards the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 when Star-Lord compared Yondu to the famous film icon while the duo safely floated to the ground clinging to Yondu’s magic arrow. Yondu’s joyful response has since become a fan favorite quote:
I’m Mary Poppins, y’all!
What do you think of this banner? Is it everything you ever wanted from a movie theater chain or is Nueplex Cinemas misrepresenting Mary Poppins Returns? Should Walt Disney Studios get involved? Share your thoughts in the comments!
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was directed by James Gunn and starred Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, and Kurt Russell. The film is available now on Digital HD, 4K, Blu-Ray, and DVD.
