Before this weekend, the biggest opening weekend in the month of August ever was for “The Bourne Ultimatum” in 2007. That number was $69,283,690.
But now “Galaxy of the Guardians” has shattered that record with a $94 million opening from Friday through today. Marvel-ous!!! “Guardians” even has a nice $66 mil internationally, with lots more to come. The future is limitless. And something tells me the Marvel insta-classic will hold right through Labor Day and the return to school. Disney’s Alan Horn should be very very happy.
Plus, the soundtrack, as I told you, is a big big hit.
Keep refreshing for more box office updates this morning…
