The sci-fi film Guardians of the Galaxy 3 started globally with a perfectly balanced box office, reports Gizmodo.

The third part of the series about space losers collected $282 million after its release. According to Variety, the domestic earning of the new film from Marvel Studios has reached $114 million against the initial forecast of $120 million. This is a step back from the second part of Guardians of the Galaxy, which was released in 2017 and started with $146 million.

Instead, the film earned $168 million at the international box office, with an unexpected $28 million increase in China. This is the third film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the beginning of the pandemic to be released in this country, following Spider-Man: Far From Home in 2019.

The audience had to wait for Guardians of the Galaxy 3 for six years. The film is currently ranked third in terms of opening weekend earnings in the domestic market. The leadership holds another big project with the participation of Chris Pratt – Super Mario Bros. The third place is occupied by Evil Dead Rise. Soon, several more movies will be released, which may very well create a big competition for Guardians. For example, this is a new part of the Fast and Furious series and a remake of The Little Mermaid.

We will remind you that in the third part of Guardians of the Galaxy beloved heroes adapt to everyday life on the Nidenia space station. However, their lives are soon turned upside down by the echoes of Rocket’s turbulent past.
