The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 opening weekend went great with the latest Marvel Universe film pulling in an estimated $145 million in domestic sales, that’s 54% more than the $94 million the original Guardians of the Galaxy earned in its debut weekend. That also turns out the be the second biggest jump for a second film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, being bested only by Captain America: Civil War.
In addition to domestic sales, the international sales have been doing just as well, bringing in $123.8 million last weekend and $158.8 million in its first weekend, for a combined total of $425 million in international and domestic sales in its first 13 days. It has been a huge success in China so far becoming the 4th highest opening in China for a Marvel Universe film.
At this rate it’s almost a sure thing that a third Guardians film will be coming down the line in the not too distant future, especially with Guardians of the Galaxy gaining a presence in Disney theme parks around the world, like the opening of Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission BREAKOUT! in a couple weeks in Disneyland.
