BOX OFFICE: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Hits $38M On Friday; Will It Top CAP's Debut?
The official numbers are in for Friday, and James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy opened to an incredible $38 million yesterday! While a $90 million weekend now looks like a guarantee, some analysts believe it may even top Captain America: The Winter Soldier's debut...
That's one hell of an opening for Guardians of the Galaxy, and Deadline's latest box office update indicates that it will earn between $92.5 - $95.5 million over the course of the three day period (these numbers include the record breaking $11.2 million from late Thursday showings). A lot now depends on today, but positive word of mouth and great reviews should help ensure that it'll finish closer to $95 million, and if that's the case, it has every chance of beating the opening of Captain America: The Winter Soldier! Of course, some even believe that Guardians of the Galaxy will exceed expectations to the extent that it will surpass $100 million! Most of the trades are currently playing it safe by placing their bets on a $92 million debut however, but these are the same sites who also claimed days ago that the movie would earn only $65 million this weekend. Either way, this is a fantastic result for an amazing movie. Stay tuned to CBM for further updates!
