Hooked On A Feeling: GOTGV2 OW over $150M

Recommended Posts

YourMother    6,890

One of the biggest box office surprises is getting a sequel that is bound to be BIG, Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2. While I don't seeing it making an OW the size of Avengers ($207.4M) or AoU ($191.1M), I can see it having an OW of galactic proportions for a few reasons.

4/14- Updated reasons due to recent events

 

1.) While sequels tend to decline at the box office (AoU, Empire, etc.,), GoTG grossed over $330M in 2014 and unlike AoU or Civil War, you don't need to see 5 other movies to understand it fully and it seems to be less dramatic which could be good for it.

2.) The Marvel Cinematic Universe owns 4 of the top 10 in opening weekends in America. All of which were on the first weekend of May, which GoTGv2 is also opening on. Not to mention weak competition in May. 

3.) James Gunn is back in the director's chair for this.

4.) Baby Groot, although has been slightly annoying in marketing, kids have loved it. 

5.) Although marketing and online buzz has been muted for this, buzz with the General Audience has been great, getting great reactions for trailers in cinema, and in a few weeks, reviews (Disney cash) comes in and the marketing becomes rampant. Even with shit marketing, Doctor Strange did over $85M OW against Trolls ($45M OW).

Baby Groot alone makes it awfully tempting...

 

After all the goodwill the first movie built up, I could see this opening somewhere close to Civil War, and it will undoubtedly have better legs.

IN.

 

I think Chris Pratt's draw in franchises, are easily there.

 

Both GOTG1 & JW did great business thanks to him.

That's debatable. He didn't help Mag 7. IMO we'll need to see how Passengers performs before we can call him a draw.

I also think $145M is where it will settle right now, which is insane anyway.

 

Final total $360M (Marvel sequel legs)

It's been a while but GOTGV2 trailer in December was Marvel's most viewed teaser and had a kickass super bowl spot. Should I up the ante?
