The Guardians are now enjoying one last round in theaters.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 continued its reign at the domestic box office this past weekend. james gunnMarvel’s swan song is just what the MCU needed to restore faith in the hearts of its passionate fans. However, now it looks like this Rocket Raccoon-centric trilogy capper did even better than expected in its second weekend. Flight. 3 earned $62.6 million domestically in its second weekend of release, more than $2 million more than its original estimate of $60.5 million. That last number was already impressive considering it only represented a 49% drop in the box office between weekends. The new figure represents only a drop of 47%.

It also means Flight. 3 easily broke the $200 million mark domestically with $216.5 million. Overall, the film crossed the $500 million mark with $530.9 million. That’s thanks to markets like China where the emotional epic has already grossed $58.4 million. This galactic achievement also means Flight. 3 has already surpassed the latest Marvel movie, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania at the worldwide box office in just over a full week of release. This particular trilogy bite only grossed $475.8 million worldwide across its entire theatrical run. Flight. 3 also joined an exclusive list of Marvel movies that dropped 50% at the box office in its second weekend. These films include Black Panther, Thor, strange doctor, Iron ManAnd The Avengers. The 47% drop is even better than the previous two Guardians films which both dropped a still-respectable 55% in their second weekend.


What is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 About?

Flight. 3 sees the High Evolutionary and Adam Warlock sue Rocket for the information he has in his head. When the now famous Guardian is seriously injured, it’s up to Star-Lord and the rest of the team to save their best friend before it’s too late. One of the main reasons Flight. 3 works so well that it centers around Rocket and its dark past. Gunn weaves a mature story about trauma and loss while masterfully blending it with the wacky Guardians antics lovers know and love. That means there are plenty of emotionally intense scenes involving subject matter like animal abuse, but it’s only ever there to beautifully showcase the best qualities of humanity. Our ability to love and spread joy.​​​​​​​
