"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" tops box office in North America

The filmmaker, who is now enjoying huge success with his Marvel sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, touchingly reached out to those fans who might be feeling alone in the world - just like he did. A development such as that makes it seem as if the character is set to return for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (which James Gunn has already started writing and will be returning to direct), but now there is a confirmation.

The summer blockbuster season shot off like a rocket as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 pulled in an impressive $145 million at the box office its opening weekend.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 stars a band of misfits played by Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel and Bradley Cooper.

The latest film from Walt Disney Co.'s cast of comic-book characters opened as the No. 1 picture in USA and Canadian theaters, researcher ComScore Inc. said in an email Sunday, pulling in $145 million in weekend sales to kick off Hollywood's summer season.

An update on the "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3" release date - or at least, the window of time in which the film may be released - was recently teased by the movie's director, James Gunn. The film's domestic total is at $207.1 million, which is down considerably from where 'Furious 7' was at this point ($320 million). The numbers should jump considerably when it starts its impending global rollout. With the release of this film, the franchise as a whole has now grossed over $11 billion worldwide. Which is why, at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Yondu sacrifices his own life to save Peter in a surprisingly (for a Guardians movie) earnest and touching scene.

DreamWorks' 'The Boss Baby' didn't appear to have much appeal prior to its release, but the fact that it just finished its sixth week in third place says otherwise.
