Spoilers ahead for folks who haven't seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

Overall, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" earns its place as a worthy sequel.

The first Guardians of the Galaxy movie from Marvel was a hoot. You can still count me in for 249 volumes of the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Here are the worldwide highlights so far: China $80.5M; United Kingdom $42.5M; Russian Federation $23.1M; Germany $23.0M; Australia $20.1M; France $20.1M; Korea $18.6M; Brazil $17.8M; Mexico $17.1M; Spain $8.5M; Italy $7.4M; and Indonesia $7.2M.

"Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" is directed by James Gunn starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Michael Rooker and Sean Gunn. And, near the end of the first film, a member of the Nova Corps reveals to Quill his genetic makeup is one they have never seen before. Where the first film had to set up a team dynamic, this film just enforces it. It doesn't cross-over into the other films like "Civil War" or the "Avengers" does; instead, it spends its two-hour-plus runtime expanding the world of the Guardians while telling deeply personal stories for each character.

All three of those elements come together brilliantly in a scene near the end of the movie, when Rocket's plans require a simple piece of tape and Peter tries to help.

Jason Bateman FINALLY signs up for Arrested Development season 5
He stated that they are very close, but he is still very hesitant because it is something that he is very desperate to do. Executive producer Brian Grazer said two years ago that he was working on 17 new episodes.

It has been nearly 3 years since the grandiose superhero movie Guardians of Galaxy directed by James Gunn hit Box Officewhich got everyone enamored. He is adorable and hilarious even though all he says is "I am Groot".

If you don't want to be spoiled for one of Guardians' five post-credits scenes, we recommend you turn back now. In this case, Fox probably own the rights to Uatu, the Watcher for Earth's sector who has interacted with the Four in the comics.

This weeks longest stay on the chart is Get Out which has been around for 8 week while top new film is once again Beauty and The Beast which has now taken £71 million and is the 8th top film ever in the UK.

The film taps the teen comedy genre in the retelling of Spider-Man's origin story as his alter-ego Peter Parker navigates the perils of high school. There used to be a little bit more, in earlier drafts of the script, of Ego being fascinated by being able to feel now that he has a human brain. The movie failed to live up to even those low expectations, posting $14.7 million in the beginning of what will likely be a downward spiral to a multi-million dollar loss. Extremely simplistic in its approach, but driven by fantastic characters and how they interact with one another.

Now attention turns to the global performance where the film would need to do quite well to recoup production costs, but after an estimated $29.1 million from 51 markets this weekend and a worldwide opening just shy of $44 million things aren't looking too bright.
