Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 the sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy came out with a bang over the weekend! The sequel even brought in 54% more than that 2014 original, becoming one of Disney’s top two openers of 2017 so far. Over the weekend, the movie brought in $145 million domestically and $427.6 million globally. The film has hopes of reaching the billion mark globally.
As the first Guardians of the Galaxy introduced the characters of the story, the sequel was able to tell a bigger story line on saving the Galaxy. In the midst of everything the value of family connection through blood or loyalty is explored. Although that’s a touchy subject, the film gives a lot of room for laughter, good music and action packed scenes. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage.
