‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ is approaching a global box office milestone

The emotional conclusion to the writer-director james gunnThe deeply personal trilogy of Guardians of the Galaxy superhero movies — Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 — may have been disappointed in its opening weekend at the box office, but the film has quietly passed a major commercial milestone recently. After just under a week in theaters worldwide, Guardians of the Galaxy 3 approaching the $350 million mark.

The film earned $138 million domestically and another $205 million in foreign markets, for a combined worldwide gross of $344 million. Guardians of the Galaxy 3 was produced on a reported budget of $250 million, which is huge, and grossed $118 million in its opening weekend at the domestic box office. This was considered a bit disappointing, although in line with updated projections. But Disney and Marvel Studios ideally would have liked it to match, if not surpass, the second film’s $146 million debut in 2017.


That said, Guardians of the Galaxy 3 much better than the first film, guardians of the galaxy, which earned $94 million in its opening weekend at the domestic box office. But that was nearly a decade ago, in 2014. The cinematic landscape, as well as audience appreciation for these characters, has changed significantly over the past few years. While Guardians was considered a niche property within the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe when it was first introduced, it has since firmly established itself in the hearts of fans everywhere.

Guardians of the Galaxy 3 was marketed as the final film in the trilogy and promotional material focusing on the character of Rocket Raccoon. Voiced by bradley cooper and performed on set by Sean Gunn via motion capture, Rocket was still the wild card of the group, but Gunn had alluded to a troubled past this whole time. THE guardians of the galaxy films follow the adventures of a group of misfits, led by Chris Prattby Peter Quill, and are acclaimed for their quirky humor and heartfelt storytelling. The previous two installments were also well-received and did extremely well at the box office.

How it works Guardians of the Galaxy 3Does the box office compare to previous chapters?

By comparison, the first guardians of the galaxy the film earned $333 million domestic and $770 million worldwide, and the second film earned $398 million domestic and $863 million worldwide. However, there’s no doubt that Marvel, as a franchise, has been struggling lately. The latest theatrical release from the once-unbeatable studio, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania earned some of the worst reviews in franchise history and also underperformed with less than $500 million worldwide.

It’s too early to tell, but Guardians of the Galaxy 3 will have to make up for its slow start with the hope that the positive reviews will continue to draw crowds to theaters over the coming weeks. Collider Ross Bonaime called it the “fun, exciting, and emotional conclusion” to the trilogy in their review, and opening day audiences awarded it an A CinemaScore. Hopefully that translates to long legs at the box office, as the movie has a clear road for another week or so before x fast howls in theaters. The film also features Zoe Saldana, David Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Wine Diesel, Chukwudi IwujiAnd Poultry.
