Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 Earns $145 Million Opening Weekend


Part three is pretty much guaranteed now. For those of you who love the Guardians of the Galaxy series, this weekend provided encouragement that the series still has its legs under it.

The success of the first film made a second edition nearly inevitable, but many harbored concerns of “franchise fatigue”.

Those concerns can be safely stored away until the release of the third film is announced. Having grossed $145 million in the U.S. on opening weekend, the film has nearly recouped the entirety of its $200 million dollar budget.

With global sales trickling in over the coming days, that number might swell to nearly $300 million. Variety News Editor Seth Kelley provided the staggering figures on Monday:

“This weekend the movie earned an estimated $124 million abroad after opening in several more major foreign markets including Korea, Russia and China. That raises the global weekend total to about $269 million”

The cast returned all major members of the original, as well as substantial roles for Kurt Russell and Pom Klementieff. Star power, coupled with the appeal of an adorable baby tree with a limited vocabulary was too much for movie-goers to resist. Expect this series to be continually milked for as long as it is producing gold milk.

“Guradians of the Galaxy 3”?, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were already brainstorming part four.
