It is shaping up to be a nice 2017 following up a record-breaking 2016 for Disney’s movie-making arm. After a monster showing for Beauty and the Beast, Disney’s latest Marvel offering, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, is holding its own at the box office.

Forbes is reporting that Guardians raked in $35 million more this past weekend, bringing its total box office tally (domestic + global) to $732.6 million. It won’t likely cross the $1 billion mark that Beauty and the Beast crossed earlier this year, but it will more than likely eclipse the $773.3 million the original Guardians of the Galaxy movie grossed.

Update 5/31/17: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 continues to perform at the box office. The sequel has now crossed $800 million globally which is enough to surpass the success of the original Guardians movie. It also puts the movie in rarefied air as the fifth Marvel movie to best $800 million joining The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War. Not bad company to be in!

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
