UPDATE: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Sets New August Record With $94 Million Debut
The latest numbers are in for James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy, and after taking an estimated $33 million on Saturday, the movie now looks set to earn around $94 million for the weekend. We also have the first wave of impressive international numbers. Read on for details!
What a result! Yesterday, many sites lowered their expectations and started predicting a debut of around $92 million. That's still an extraordinary result, but an opening in the $97 million range is something else altogether, especially as it means that it tops Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Can it possibly reach $100 million? Check back here as we'll have more numbers for you soon...
UPDATE: So, the latest batch of numbers are a little lower than those we brought you earlier, but considering the fact that Guardians of the Galaxy was initially expected to open to $60 million, anything over that is an amazing result...especially when it's $34 million more! We also have some international numbers for you here, but the final weekend gross won't be confirmed until tomorrow when today's viewings are taken into account. A surge COULD potentially lead to something a little closer to $95 million or more, so a huge congratulations to director James Gunn.
