Guardians of the Galaxy: Part 3 became the top-grossing film this weekend in the United States with $114 million, according to estimates released Sunday.

The tape directed by James Gunn was shown in 4450 cinemas.

Internationally, where the film was shown in 51 countries excluding China, Guardians of the Galaxy grossed $168 million, with a global opening total of $282 million.

In America, that’s an impressive number, but a little less than what’s expected from a Marvel release. On the same weekend last year, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness raked in $187.4 million in its first three days thanks to the success of Spider-Man: No Road Home. And in November, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever opened with $181.3 million.

For its part, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum of Solace opened with just over $106 million to $474 million worldwide. Shazam! Wrath of the Gods” collected $133.4 million.

“Guardians Vol. 3” pushed “The Super Mario Bros. Movie” out of first place, which held there for four weeks.

The next release of the superhero movie is The Flash, which is released on June 16.

Guardians Vol. 3 stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel. The criticism was generally good, but it was more mixed than previous versions. And it is difficult to compare it with premieres made before the pandemic, such as “T. 2″, which grossed $146 million in May 2017.

Super Mario Bros. added another $18.6 million in its fifth weekend to move into second place for a domestic total of $518.1 million. It has now crossed $1.1 billion worldwide.

In third place is “Evil Dead Rise” with $5.7 million, and in fourth place is “Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret” with 3.4 million.

Romantic comedy Love Again (directed by Priyanka Chopra Jonas, with Celine Dion and new songs) grossed $2.4 million for fifth place after opening in 2,703 theaters.
