Everything You Need To Know About That Other Guardians Of The Galaxy TeamMore

Marvel Studios' highly anticipated sequel Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is now finally in theaters, which means it's time to dig deep into spoilers. It kicked off Hollywood's summer movie season with something the movie business has been lacking: a sequel more successful than the original.

Disney, which acquired Marvel in 2009, spent about $200 million to make the visual effects-heavy "Guardians Vol. 2". The second "Guardians" received an average grade of A from audiences, according to market research firm CinemaScore, indicating it has a good shot at dominating the box office for the next few weeks.

The film stars Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, and Pom Klementieff as Mantis.

The American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics superhero team "Guardians of the Galaxy" is a crowd pleaser.

He regrouped with Soundgarden three years later and maintained a steady flow of album releases and an global touring schedule. Fellow Seattleite Kurt Cobain was eventually the bigger star, the vanguard of a new cultural era that no one saw coming.

Back in March, box office analysts predicted a $160 million box office opening weekend for Guardians 2, but it came in slightly under those projections.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 had a massive opening weekend, accumulating $425 million (Rs 2700 crore) worldwide. The Beauty and the Beast remake has already staked a solid claim with its nearly $500 million domestic total, and the next Star Wars movie will most certainly follow The Force Awakens' push past $500+ million to be the year's top earner.

"The Fate of the Furious" from Universal Pictures dropped to second place in its fourth week with $8.5 million. Take a look at the box office estimates for the weekend of May 5. It has pulled in $207.1 million to date domestically. The new release is a thriller toplined by Richard Gere and Laura Linney, adapted from the Dutch novel of same name by Herman Koch about two couples with family issues.
