'Guardians' Of The Galaxy Vol. 3': Elizabeth Debicki Will Return As

Among new territories, China led with $48 million, followed by South Korea ($13.3 million) and Russian Federation ($11.6 million). The Universal release, the eighth installment in the franchise, has grossed $1.6 billion worldwide.

Gunn's follow-up sees the return of Chris Pratt as Star Lord, who brings his team back together to fight off evil forces.

Granted, it's a little early to be dwelling on such thoughts, considering that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is still playing in theaters across the globe - and making a pretty penny for Marvel in the process. A third movie has already been confirmed and will probably hit in 2020.

Director James Gunn (R), actor Dave Batista (L) and actress Zoe Saldana attend a press conference of the American movie "Guardians of the Galaxy" held in Singapore's Marina Bay Sands Expo on July 10, 2014 as part of their South East Asia media tour. However, Vol. 2 did even better in the all-important Chinese market this weekend, opening 75% ahead of its predecessor.

In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Elizabeth Debicki plays Ayesha, the Golden High Priestess of the Sovereign who leads a pursuit to track down and destroy the titular crew after Rocket Raccoon steals some of their valuable anulax batteries. Fans will wait and see where it ends up at the box office in relation to its Marvel Studios brethren. Take a look at the box office estimates for the weekend of May 5. Where available, the latest global numbers also are included. Not 'Fast & Furious.' It's 'Guardians of the Galaxy'. Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" finished fifth with an estimated 4.94 million US dollars in its eighth weekend.
