Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 Shines Ahead of U.S. Release

Yes, it looks like Star Lord and his pals are bigger than Ben-Hur as the film stormed international territories including the U.K., Australia, Germany, France, Mexico, Brazil, Italy, Indonesia, Spain and The Phillipines. The film pocketed $101.2m (USD) with the countries posting:

UNITED KINGDOM – $15.5m
AUSTRALIA – $11.6m (6 Day)
GERMANY – $8.3m
FRANCE – $7.9m
MEXICO – $7.6m
BRAZIL – $6.9m
ITALY – $4.1m
INDONESIA – $3.4m
SPAIN – $3.3m
PHILLIPINES – $3.2m

Bangarang! That’s big, kiddies! It’s tracking at 50% greater than the original Guardians of the Galaxy and positions the U.S. opening weekend in the $110-$120m range with a $400m potential finish domestically. With that sort of bounty on its head, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume Two could nudge its way to a $930m+ global finish.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOLUME TWO releases in the UNITED STATES on FRIDAY MAY 5, 2017
