Guardians of the Galaxy and Iron Man 2 Highlight “Friday Night Movie”
Presented by Target, with limited commercial interruption

And two Marvel Cinematic Universe films highlight the docket.
Friday Nights With Star-Lord and Iron Man
Guardians of the Galaxy and Iron Man 2 will hit the “airwaves” Friday, April 17, and Friday, May 1, respectively.
The official Disney press release reported:
Disney teams up with Target to launch FRIDAY NIGHT MOVIE to bring families more entertainment with less interruption, airing movies across ESPN, Freeform and FX from April 10 to May 1. Featuring an array of family favorites such as “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” and “Iron Man 2,” Friday Night Movie brings households together in these times of change and uncertainty, and delivers beloved films to families in the comfort of their homes.
Content featured in the limited ads provides commentary and entertainment including trivia and newly recorded interviews with ESPN talent such as Louis Riddick and Mike Golic Sr. – all brought to viewers by Target. In addition, PSAs and custom content featuring Freeform talent will air on the network – encouraging togetherness while staying at home.
