Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Edmund Wade | 13 May, 2017, 10:16

I wasn't able to see "Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2" in 3D, which the film is playing in along with an IMAX 3D release, due to the fact that I was fortunate enough to see the film in Dolby Cinema, a recently opened premium format opened at the Concord Mills movie theater. But now that Gunn has officially signed on to write and direct Vol. 3 - a threequel that will seemingly complete the Guardians trilogy while simultaneously teeing up a new era for the MCU - the Internet is currently awash with speculation and throwaway rumors pertaining to Guardians 3.

The "Guardians" franchise is another example of Marvel's might at the box office. Guardians of the Galaxy actors Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, and Karen Gillan all returned, and Kurt Russell and Pom Klementieff were added to the cast. In March, the mouse house's Beauty and the Beast live action adaptation began its box office run with $174.7 million and eventually grossed $1 billion worldwide.

Across 4,347 locations, the sequel to 2014's surprise hit exceed the opening prediction of $140 million.

Marvel Studios' highly anticipated sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is now finally in theaters, which means it's time to dig deep into spoilers.

Meanwhile, The Fate of the Furious dropped to second with $8.5 million, bringing its total to just a bit over $207 million.

The film also received the widest Imax opening to date, with 1,088 screens delivering $25 million worldwide.

According to director James Gunn, the location of the galaxy which the titular Guardians defend is not our home galaxy, the Milky Way, but instead, the Andromeda galaxy.

The entire team, including Gunn, will be back for a third film that will follow the Guardians crossing over with the Avengers in 2018's The Avengers: Infinity War. As for the domestic numbers Fate now ranks fourth in the series but is expected to leap frog Fast Five ($209 million) within the next two days and Fast & Furious 6 ($238 million) by the end of its theatrical run.

Pantelion Films' How to Be a Latin Lover placed # 5 with $5.3-M from 1,203 cinemas for a 10-day box office of $20.7-M.

"The Fate of the Furious", $30.1 million.

New offerings at the specialty box office.

The gap between first and second at the United States box office was enormous. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion dropped four spots to seventh place with $3.2 million. I have seen the film (review coming soon).
