marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 does not reach the same heights as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in its opening weekend, even after revamping its weekend up, but it’s showing staying power in its second weekend, which is good news for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will earn an estimated $60.5 million in its second weekend, down 49% from its opening weekend total. It’s the best second-weekend hold for any of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies, and the best hold for any Marvel Cinematic Universe since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, suggesting that strong reviews and word of mouth send the message that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 it may be more worth going to the theater than previous post-pandemic releases from Marvel Studios, attracting inactive fans. If Marvel can keep that momentum going with Wonders in November, bolstering its previous box office consistency, remains to be seen.

ComicBook.com’s Patrick Cavanaugh Awarded Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 4 stars out of 5 in his review of the film. He writes:
“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is the culmination of everything James Gunn has built with these characters, warts and all. The adventure is the most moving, as it goes jugular with not just Rocket’s story, but the destination many other characters arrive at, while the filmmaker also manages to put his mark on a studio notorious for regurgitating stereotypical adventures filled with overwhelming similarities. The introduction of arbitrary supporting characters and inconsequential villains is another callback to the Marvel machine, and while there’s plenty of side quests and self-aggrandizement, the impact of Rocket’s emotional arc is one of the strongest we’ve seen in the entire MCU. , the inventiveness of the action sequences and a cathartic third act manage to kick off the trilogy on a high note.”
