Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’ rockets to No. 1

The original Guardians of the Galaxy movie, which opened in the first week of August in 2014, debuted with $94.3 million, with only one new release competing against it, Universal's musical biopic Get On Up, which earned $13.5 million in a distant third place. F&F is tipping toward a major global play as the franchise ages; it's made $950 million everywhere else in the world, far outpacing the roughly 50/50 split that most Hollywood blockbusters still see these days. Now, thanks to writer/director James Gunn, we have word on a new character from Vol. 2 who will be back for the sequel that is said to conclude the story for this iteration of the team. On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 scored an 81% approval rating from critics, just a little ways down from the original's 91% approval rating. The Tollywood film (in the Telugu language) has in two weeks grossed $147.3 million globally, according to comScore. Box Office Mojo estimates that the film could gross over $400 million domestically in total. While it is still too early to tell what the final box office run will look like for the sequel, the original "Guardians" kept bringing audiences back, eventually taking in $333 million in the US and Canada and $440 million overseas.

"2" pulled in $145 at the box office this weekend. "The Fate of the Furious" came in at no. 2 with $8.5 million in its fourth weekend.

More impressive is that Disney releases are the only films to open above $100 million in North America so far in 2017. That total means that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has now brought in over $11 billion worldwide.

Fearing the might of "Guardians", no other major studio releases debuted over the weekend.

Disney blockbuster Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, hauled in another $4.9 million, taking it to almost half a billion dollars in ticket sales in North America during its two-month run.

"The Boss Baby", $17 million.
