Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2 Box Office Prediction: Disney's Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 will open in most of the countries this Friday including India. The film had an early release in most of the markets of Asia, Europe and Latin America.
The last film of GOTG was a massive success at the worldwide box office by earning $774 million and is currently the fifth highest grossing film in Marvel Cinematic Universe. Thus the sequel is releasing with very high expectations. Fast and The Furious 8 was released three weeks back which turned out to huge money spinners especially in overseas. Now Hollywood is likely to see another major blockbuster in the form of GOGV2. The new film has 91% rating on Rotten Tomatoes which is a good one. Also, the lead actor Chris Pratt enjoys a huge fan following all over the world.
Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 is expected to open at $150-160 million in North American which will be much higher than its prequel ($94 million). It will become the second biggest opener of 2017 after Beauty and The Beast.
The film will have a simultaneous release in China which can prove to be vital. Opening in the second biggest film market on the same day holds an advantage and the success of Fast and Furious 8' in China proved so.
On a related note, GOTG2 will compete with two Indian films in worldwide. One is the last week's release Bahubali 2 which is expected to earn $4-5 million in North America in the second weekend. And the second is Aamir Khan starrer Dangal which will release in China tomorrow.
The film does not have much appeal for the Indian audience. Still, it can open in the range of 2-3 crore. Also, there will be a strong competition from Bahubali 2 which will enter into the second week with a solid trend.
