Box Office Predictions - 'Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2'
This weekend sees the release of only one film, but it's a big one. The much anticipated follow-up to Guardians of the Galaxy; Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2, hits theaters this weekend. We know it's going to be big, but how big? Let's find out:
Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 (Disney)
Prediction: $150 million
I think Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 is going to have an excellent opening, possibly surpassing the $150 million mark. The original was such a surprise hit and the property has only grown in the past three years. I think pent-up demand to see the Guardians back in action will ensure that this movie makes a killing in its first weekend. That said, I don't see this one holding up quite as well as the first one did. The first film had a pretty huge opening itself nearly cranking out a 4X multiplier, which is pretty much unheard of for a blockbuster releasing in the summer season.
With the oncoming onslaught of blockbusters in the next few weeks, Vol. 2 is going to have trouble keeping up with the pace of the original, it won't matter though because it will still end up with more in the bank based off of just how much higher it opens. Overall, I predict that Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2 will make around $150 million for the weekend, and maybe $400 million once it's all wrapped up with its domestic run.
Well that wraps it up for this weekend, be sure to check back in afterwards to see how the film performed.
