Guardian's Of The Galaxy Sequel Tops Box Office

Freda Brock | 13 May, 2017, 21:47

With studios shying away from releasing against Marvel Studios, Gunn's sequel is showing $145 million in estimated box office receipts.

At the domestic box office, Fate of the Furious has pulled in $207 million, which is a far cry from the $353 million that Furious 7 pulled in. Its debut figure was good enough to be the second highest opening of 2017.

Though Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 just opened, fans are already looking forward to Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

That puts the movie in 6th place on the all-time opening weekends for May. Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" finished fifth with an estimated 4.94 million USA dollars in its eighth weekend.

"We feel great. It is a spectacular number, period", said Disney's distribution chief Dave Hollis. "Really, poor quality films have been the thing that has, more than anything, been rejected by consumers over time". As a result, the film has now made over $425 million worldwide. She's actually one of my favorite actors I've ever worked with. Obviously, last summer was a bummer. Wonder how long it'll take before we see Oliver and Company get the live action treatment? "There's a lot out there". Like with the release of The Fate of the Furious four weeks ago, all of the other major releases that could have been released this weekend chose to be released next week or weeks from now. We knew the sequel would build on that quite a bit and that it did with a almost 54% increase on the original by bringing in an estimated $145 million according to Box Office Mojo.

The Universal release, the eighth instalment in the franchise, has grossed $1.6 billion worldwide.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is now playing! In real life, the first Iron Man film was released in 2008, eight years prior to the release of Civil War.

United will receive 9,950 tickets for the Stockholm finale at the Friends Arena, which will have a capacity of 48,000 on May 24. They won the Champions League on three occasions. "I don't know the incident, I didn't see", Mourinho said .

ComScore also released the estimated ticket sales from Friday to Sunday at US and Canadian theaters. Where available, the latest global numbers also are included.

Gunn has yet to reveal more details about the "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" sequel. The film is averaging a meager 30% drop off week after week and should have no problem crossing $450/$460 million before leaving theaters.

Beauty and the Beast rounds out the top five with $4.9 million as the film is approaching $500 million domestically. Indian film Baahubali 2 took the seventh spot.

9 "Going in Style", $1.9 million ($3.1 million international).

How to be a Latin Lover will be Third.

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2", $124 million.
