Guardians of the Galaxy 3 Defies Box Office Odds

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 impresses both fans and reviewers.

Only a 48.9% dip in the second weekend box office set a new record.

Establishes a new benchmark for the best second weekend for a Marvel Studios sequel.

Since Black Panther in 2018, the lowest decline for an MCU film has been Black Panther.

One of only five MCU films to have a second weekend decrease of less than 50%.

Guardians 3 increases faith in the franchise's longevity.

The departure of James Gunn to DC does not threaten the MCU's success.

With planned sequels, Marvel Studios is primed for ongoing success.

Guardians 3 lays the framework for the MCU to have yet another successful run.
