Box office review for the week of May 14

The MCU… not dead yet! I won’t do another column where I talk about the current state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe like I did last week because I’ll sound like a broken record. However, if you haven’t read it, please check it here. I don’t want to come across as Galileo or Nostradamus either, but my thoughts have been confirmed: People will see a movie in theaters with positive reviews and strong word-of-mouth, regardless of genre. This was the case with Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol.3, who now owns one of BEST DROP WEEK 2 OF ANY MOVIE IN MCU HISTORY!

The film has already reached $500 million worldwide (which is even better than Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniainternational cumulative) and is now on track to earn over $800 million worldwide, which *checks notes* make it as successful as Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2. Time will tell how much money this will make, but please go ahead and tell me how the McU died!

The hold on theaters may not be as strong, but the franchise will continue for many years to come if it focuses on quality control and good storytelling. james gunn moved on to DC, but that doesn’t mean Marvel shouldn’t learn from them. I hope the talk of “superhero fatigue” will cease to exist, especially with Spider-Man: Through the Spider-Verse planning to erase the opening weekend of the first film greatly.

There were a lot of new movies this weekend, but they all failed to make an impact because Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3 still dominates the month of May. Book Club: The Next Chapter didn’t do as well as the original, with an ugly $6.5 million opening. It was not as well received as the original, which might have factored into its losses.

Robert RodriguezIt is Hypnotic was a critical and commercial misfire, grossing just $2.3 million at No. 6, even with big stars like Ben Affleck, Guillaume FishtnerAnd Alice Braga headliner of the thriller. It’s an interesting film to analyze, not because of the content itself, but solely because of the historical fact that it went bankrupt and closed Solstice Studios after overpaying for the distribution rights.

Indie side, Matt JohnsonIt is blackberry opened in 450 theaters with a total of $473,000, while charlie dayIt is crazy paradise grossed over $443,140 from 784 theaters. blackberry has a much stronger grip than crazy paradiseand Johnson’s film is poised to make more money as the buzz has grown far bigger than Day’s directorial debut.
