Hollywood’s James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 topped the weekend box office with a domestic opening of $114 million, well behind the last film in the standalone Marvel Studios franchise but promising enough to fan hope that the movie is already benefiting from strong audience sentiment.
The news was even better overseas, where the superhero pic started off with a better-than-expected $168.1 million for a global start of $282.1 million. That included a No. 1 finish in China with a $28.1 million debut (most Hollywood movies have been doing nominal business in China). And the movie is huge in South Korea, where it earned $13.1 million.
Any domestic opening over $100 million in the post-pandemic era is nothing to be dismissed. Still, Guardians‘ initial performance in North America is mixed news for Marvel and Gunn — who now runs rival DC Studios — and is sparking further concern that superhero fatigue has settled in at the box office as the 2023 summer season kicks off.
Only a year ago, for example, Marvel threequel Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madnesssoared to a series-best $187 million in its domestic launch. In 2017, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2opened to $146.2 million, while the first Guardiansopened to $94.2 million domestically in 2014, not adjusted for inflation. Film has beaten Weekend number of Thor(225 million USD).
Film has crossed 659 million USD Worldwide and 266.5 million USD in North America. Film will cross 700 million USD Worldwide by next weekend and lifetime of 875-900 million USD worldwide. A massive blockbuster!
