The app that tells you the best time to run and pee during a movie without missing the best scenes.

Read Time:2 Minute, 31 Second

There are some spoilers here, but this is intended as a primer for the first 30 minutes of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 1, that can at times be a little confusing. First, you need to have seen the after credit scene for Thor 2: The Dark World. That’s where Sif and Volstagg – members of the Thor’s warriors – deliver the Aether to a new character named The Collector (Benicio Del Toro).

Long story short for GOTG:

The Aether is one of the six “Infinity Stones”. One of the other Infinity stones is the Tesseract – also called the Cosmic Cube – from Captain America and The Avengers. Basically, it’s a bad idea to keep the Infinity Stones together because they are so powerful.

The Collector is an immortal and one of the elders of the universe. They think they can trust him with the Aether, but after they leave, The Collector says, “One down, five to go.” It’s unknown at this point if the Collector wants to protect the Infinity Stones or use them.

Meeting Thanos

In the end credit scene after The Avengers, we meet Thanos, who is after all six Infinity Stones because he can use them to become the ultimate big bad in the universe.

That’s the backstory for Guardians Of The Galaxy.

What we discover in the first 30 minutes of the movie is that a new Marvel character named Ronan wants to destroy the Novan civilization – we have no real idea why. His race, the Kree, have been at war with the Novans for ages, but they recently signed a peace treaty. Ronan, one of the highest ranking warriors in the Kree army, ignores the peace treaty and continues to fight against the Novans.

Since Ronan is alone in his battle against the Novans he made a deal with Thanos. Thanos agreed to annihilate the Nova Civilization if Ronan will deliver an orb to him. Surprise! The orb happens to be one of the Infinity Stones.

Thanos sent two of his pseudo daughters – Nebula and Gamora – to help Ronan retrieve the orb.

That should be enough to help keep the plot and character development clear during the first 30 minutes of Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 1.

Best app ever!

RunPee is the only app we use before movies and afterward. not only does RunPee tell you when it’s a good time to leave the theater, kids these days ask if there’s anything during/after the credits, and RunPee lets parents know when there might be some thing that a kid might miss!

RunPee has tidbits, ratings, leave the theater times, and lengths. This is THE VITAL APP for watching any movie!

We used it when my wife was pregnant, and we have recommended it to every pregnant gal we know! How else can you enjoy a movie when you have to go out so often?!
