“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” from Marvel Studios debuted in North American cinemas over the weekend and sold an estimated total of $114 million in ticket sales. Although this total is significantly lower than that of “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness,” also from Marvel, which debuted last year with $187 million, it is still considered an excellent opening for a Marvel Episode 3 sequel, according to analyst David A. Gross. Universal’s box office hit “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” which held the top spot for five weeks, was finally displaced by “Guardians,” which took the top spot in the box office.
Falling one spot to third place is Warner Bros.’ horror movie “Evil Dead Rise,” which grossed $5.7 million, followed by Lionsgate’s comedy-drama based on the children’s book by Judy Blume, “Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret,” with $3.4 million. Sony’s new romantic comedy “Love Again,” starring Priyanka Chopra Jonas, is in fifth place in the rankings, with a box office gross of $2.4 million and a very low critical rating of 17% on the website Rotten Tomatoes.
Despite “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” not matching the impressive debut of “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness,” analysts consider the film to have had solid opening weekend ticket sales. The film’s success at the box office is a reminder of Marvel’s dominance in today’s film industry. Additionally, the fact that the film displaced “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” which has been at the top of the box office for five weeks, is impressive in itself.
Although “Love Again” has not received good reviews, Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ popularity may have contributed to the film’s box office gross. Overall, the weekend was a moderate success for the film industry, and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” is expected to continue leading the box office in the coming weeks.
