As we approach the release date of Guardians of the Galaxy 3, the hype is real. Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been eagerly waiting for the conclusion of this beloved trilogy, and based on the early projections of Box Office Pro, it seems that Guardians 3 could be a major hit.
But with the underperformance of some recent comic book films, will Guardians of the Galaxy 3 face similar struggles? In this article, we’ll take a look at the early projections and what they could mean for the upcoming release.
Guardians of the Galaxy 3: A Highly Anticipated Movie
For many people, Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year. The first two films were praised for their humor, lovable characters, and amazing soundtrack. Even the holiday special released last year received great reviews, and it’s safe to say that fans are looking forward to what’s in store for the third installment.
But the question is, will this upcoming Marvel film live up to the hype? Especially considering the current state of comic book films, many of which are struggling to perform at the box office.
Recent Underperformance of Comic Book Films
Box Office Pro has projected that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 could make anywhere between $125 to $155 million during its opening weekend. This is an impressive projection, considering recent comic book films.
For example, Ant-Man and the Lost Quantum Mania failed to make even $500 million. Black Adam didn’t even crack $400 million, while Shazam 2 is expected to make less than $140 million.
Even Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, while a success at the box office, experienced a significant drop from its predecessor. This context sets the stage for the movie to make an impact at the box office.
Box Office Projections
If Guardians 3 reaches the upper end of its projection range, it could surpass Super Mario Brothers and become the highest-grossing opening weekend of the year.
Analysts are quick to note that the film marketing campaign hasn’t even revved up yet. Once it does, we could see projections for the film increase even higher.
Chris from the team at Box Office Breakdown thinks that the current projections for the film are low. “People are really excited about this… People seem really jazzed about it. They love these characters and their story.”
Though early projections are just estimates, anticipation for Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is high. With the right marketing, the film could become a huge hit at the box office. It’s clear that audiences are excited about the characters, humor and music that made the first two films so beloved.
Regardless of the final box office numbers, Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is sure to be a memorable addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We can’t wait to see what’s in store.
