Saturday update: Disney reports that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 posted $15.7 million on Friday, taking its eight-day domestic haul to $168.4 million and paving the way for a second weekend that could exceed $60 million.

Going into the frame, a weekend of over $50 million would have already been a pretty good result for the sequel, as forecasts called for a less than 60% drop and one of the two best showings of a movie. MCU in the post-pandemic era. Flight. 3 will eclipse even this expectation.

If the film follows a similar path to Flight. 2 made six years ago, when Mother’s Day weekend also landed on her second image Flight. 3 could ring in around $62 million for a fantastic 48% drop.

Clearly, Marvel’s fan base is always more than eager to participate in the franchise when word of mouth is this positive. The Rotten Tomatoes movie viewership score is still 95% this morning.

On the front of the opening, Book Club: The Next Chapter earned $2.14 million on Friday, including all previews from the start of the week. Focus estimates a $7 million weekend, though models point to a higher ceiling thanks to expected Mother’s Day increases. Surpassing $8 million seems achievable, with a nice shot at over $9 million if the holidays hit full steam ahead for the target audience.

In the meantime, The movie Super Mario Bros. continues to break through. Now grossing $525.9 million domestically (17th all-time through Friday), the film is now the 4th-highest-grossing animated film in history at the box- global office and Universal’s best to date in the world. He exceeded Minions ($1.16 billion) and is expected to reach $1.213 billion by the end of Sunday.

Friday update: Focusing characteristics’ Book Club: The Next Chapter earned $550,000 (previously reported as $500,000) from national previews, which include shows starting at 5 p.m. Thursday as well as showings at 1 p.m. last Sunday.

That number lives up to expectations going into the weekend as the sequel seems to play out throughout the weekend thanks to Mother’s Day Sunday. Similar films include 80 for Brady ($1.27 million from all previews, $750,000 from Thursday only), Are you there God? It’s me, Margaret. ($600,000) and ticket to paradise ($1.1 million including early access).

In the meantime, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 stood at $145.54 million after six days of domestic play through Wednesday. It has an increasing chance of surpassing $50 million in its second frame, as mentioned below, and may even top the final ranges.
