Surprise, "Guardians Of The Galaxy" Is About To Take The Weekend Box Office, By A LOT

Yes, hello, Guardians of the Galaxy is blowing up this weekend’s box office. In other news, the Earth is round (well, it’s an oblate spheroid, according to Wikipedia) and ice cream tastes good. But back to Guardians, the movie made $37 million domestically on Saturday and is on track for a $97 million weekend. That’s according to Box Office Mojo.

Marvel own the box office once again with GotG

Deadline, however, reports different figures. According to the industry website, GotG made just above $31 million and will finish the three-day period at just over $94 million domestic. The bottom line is still the same – this bunch of A-holes is about to make a lot of money for Marvel, Disney and everyone involved.

In a record cracking year, Guardians of the Galaxy comes in as the best August opener of all time. It has a pretty significant lead too. The last movie to top the record was The Bourne Ultimatum seven summers ago. The Matt Damon starrer made $69,2 million years during its debut in the summer of ’07. Most of the reviews for Guardians are also of the “two thumbs up” variety.

Meanwhile, the James Brown biopic Get On Up is also making good headway and is predicted to come in third with $14 million – just behind Universal’s Lucy, which is on track for $18,9 million on its second weekend, adding to a total of $79,5 million.
