The Box Office Report: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’ adds $60.5M in second weekend
The third ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ film has virtually tied the entire ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania’ domestic haul — after just two weekends.
Hello! Welcome to The Box Office Report for the weekend of May 12-14, 2023.
1. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
Weekend gross: $60.5M
Total domestic gross: $213.2M
Last weekend: 1st
Percent drop: 49
The first two Guardians of the Galaxy movies saw 55 percent drops their second weekend. Marvel Studios obviously wanted Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 to match its predecessors, but even more critically, the movie needed to avoid the unprecedented 70 percent drop that Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania suffered its second weekend in February.
The third Guardians movie easily accomplished both those challenges, dropping just 49 percent this weekend, adding $60.5 million to its domestic total.
So much for the superhero fatigue everyone keeps talking about.
