Vol. 2 is No. 1
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 raked in a whopping AU$23,079,118* from April 27-April 30 at the Australian Box Office. Worldwide, as of writing this, internationally the movie has grossed over its production budget (approximately AU$270 million*) by over AU$31 million*.
Whether you think the movie is better, as good as or not as good as the first, it seems like the movie is universally loved and these figures will hopefully see more Guardians stand alone movies in the future (and hopefully some hinted at possible spinoffs).
I for one loved the movie even more than the first. They nailed the humour, with Drax having some of the funniest parts and Baby Groot having a few scenes that had the whole audience in stitches. The humour works so well as it matches the bright, rainbow coloured world of the movie. Even the more serious parts are not taken too seriously and the action scenes are just awesome. Highly recommended!
Looks like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is going to bring in a nice chunk of change. Here’s hoping this means we get more fun action sci-fi in the same vein in the future.
Happy gaming (and movie watching)!
