Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2” has blasted past $810 million at the global box office in just four weeks. The tentpole’s total hits $340 million domestically and over $455 million internationally.

It is Disney’s fifth film to surpass $750 million, following “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3,” and “Captain America: Civil War.”

All of these films successfully grossed over $860 million internationally during their theoretical run. With the success of “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2,” James Gunn has become a favorite filmmaker of Disney and Marvel.

He is reportedly busy in the production of “Galaxy Volume 3,” which is scheduled for December 2019.

‘Guardians 2’ at the box office

“Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2” is the 62nd film to gross over $810 million at the worldwide box office; the most interesting thing is that the movie earned this much in only a few weeks. It means, “Galaxy Vol. 2” is likely to touch the $1 billion mark in coming weeks.

If it happens, the film may break the box office records of Disney’s recent blockbuster “Beauty and the Beast,” which grossed over $1.2 billion internationally and $530 million domestically.

In China and Germany, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” has earned $101 million and $26 million respectively – and in the United Kingdom, it has grossed $48 million.

This means “Volume 2” surpassed the total international and domestic grosses of 2014 film titled “Guardians of the Galaxy.”

The new ‘Galaxy’ film

The original film cast Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Chris Pratt as Lord, Dave Bautista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as Rocket, and Vin Diesel as Groot – all of them returned to “Galaxy 2” and performed very well.

The 2014 film grossed $330 million at the domestic box office and over $430 million internationally, but the current film has earned a lot more than the original. James Gunn returns to co-write and direct “Volume 3.” We expect that this film will break the records of “Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2,” but there is no information about its cast members.

You will have to wait a little more until the pre-production of “Volume 3” completes. Meanwhile, the studio is busy in the development of two brand new “Avengers” films.

This week’s another major release is “Baywatch,” which failed to impress the global audiences and received negative comments from critics. “Wonder Woman,” on the other hand, has been a major hit of the week as the film grossed $90 million on the first day of its release.
