James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is off to a great start at the North American box office.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 earned $17.5 million during Thursday night previews. The Marvel Studios release also brought in an additional $35 million from 47 markets outside of North America.
James Gunn has emphasized that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is his swan song from the Marvel Cinematic Universe now, given that he has accepted the coveted job as the new co-CEO of DC Studios alongside film producer Peter Safran. One of his first duties in his new position is to write and direct Superman: Legacy, which is a reboot exploring a younger Clark Kent, moving on from the most recent iteration with Henry Cavill.
What to expect from the third Guardians movie
Written and directed by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldaña, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Elizabeth Debicki, Sean Gunn, Sylvester Stallone, Will Poulter, Chukwudi Iwuji and Maria Bakalova.
The Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 synopsis reads as follows: “Our beloved band of misfits are settling into life on Knowhere, but it isn’t long before their lives are upended by the echoes of Rocket’s turbulent past. Peter Quill, still reeling from the loss of Gamora, must rally his team around him on a dangerous mission to save Rocket’s life – a mission that, if not completed successfully, could quite possibly lead to the end of the Guardians as we know them.”
