Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 went big at the UK Box Office


Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 rocketed into #1 at UK and Irish Box Office this Bank Holiday Weekend with an awesome estimated £17.85 Million within its opening four days. This is the second highest opening of the year behind Disney’s own Beauty and the Beast. The three day opening is an out of this world estimated £13.06 Million, which sees the sequel shoot past the £6.5 million opening weekend figure for the original GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY film, at the speed of light.

After just 4 days, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 is bigger than the lifetime grosses of CAPTAIN AMERICA (£10.3m), THOR (£14m), ANT-MAN £16.3m) WOLVERINE ORIGINS (£16.3m), SUPERMAN RETURNS (£16.4m) , BATMAN BEGINS (£16.5m) and IRON MAN (£17.4m) from the MCU and DC universe.
