Guardians of the Galaxy To Begin Streaming on November 18

We're less than three weeks away from being able to watch Guardians of the Galaxy in the privacy of your own home.

Earlier today, online retail giant Amazon sent out an e-mail to consumers who had preordered copies of Guardians, instructing readers their copy would be available to watch on November 18:

Thank you for your pre-order of "Guardians of the Galaxy" on Amazon Instant Video. "Guardians of the Galaxy" will be available to watch from Your Video Library on November 18, 2014.

Most major home entertainment releases are now streamed somewhere in the neighborhood of two weeks before they hit stores on DVD and Blu-ray, but in the case of Guardians of the Galaxy, no announcement had been made officially regarding when or if the film would become available early.

The Blu-ray and DVD are expected in stores on December 9.
