Guardians of the Galaxy Tracking to be a Box Office Hit


Guardians of the Galaxy

You’re welcome.

Marvel has really been pushing Guardians of the Galaxy lately. In addition to all of the trailers and TV spots, they held a special IMAX preview of 17 minutes from the movie this past Monday. And despite some idiots failing to understand what “17 minutes” really means, all those promotion may be helping the movie with its advanced box office tracking.

According to The Wrap, the movie is currently tracking for a $60 million opening, but could go as high as $80 million. Keep in mind, this is three weeks before release:

Marvel's GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY tracking for $60 million opening 3 wks out! I've heard it could go as high as 70-80.

Hopefully a big opening will shut up all those people who like to call the movie “risky” or “Marvel’s first bomb”. If you took a drink every time some snarky film blog called the movie “risky”, you’d end up with alcohol poisoning.
