There was no doubt heading into Mother’s Day weekend that “King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword” was going to underperform, the question was just how badly it would do. Warner Bros. tried to stir up excitement for the picture with a splashy trailer at last summer’s San Diego Comic-Con, but only Charlie Hunnam from the cast showed up, and audiences could smell the stink off a movie that had already seen its release bumped around a few times.

Another Marvel Studios movie has debuted in theaters, and you know what that means – Easter Egg breakdowns! Arguably, the best source of Easter Eggs is none other than YouTube’s Mr. Sunday Movies, and he’s back with a quick video breakdown of most of the Easter Eggs you’ll find in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” Of course, ‘Guardians’ writer/director James Gunn is notorious for loading his films with Easter Eggs, so the idea of finding each and every one of them is impossible.

Marvel have undoubtedly had an enormous impact on the movie world, from interlinking franchises to the prevalence of superhero movies, but maybe the most annoying copy-cat spawning innovation was their post-credit scenes. They didn’t invent them — “Airplane!,” among many others, has a doozy — and it’s not necessarily their fault. Indeed, when they began, with a surprise cameo from Samuel L. Jackson at the end of “Iron Man” nine years ago teasing a future “Avengers” team-up, it was a fun little easter egg for fans.
