The Bottom Line: May 5, 2017: These A-Holes Are Back

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Vin Diesel

The Bottom Line: May 5th, 2017

Quick Takes – There’s a new Marvel movie out this weekend, so you know the drill. Find out how Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will do in this week’s edition of The Bottom Line!

Box Office Top Five

The Fate of the Furious  remained in first place with $20 million, while How To Be A Latin Lover opened at number two with $12.3 million. Bahubaali 2: The Conclusion landed in third with $10.4 million, while The Boss Baby returned to the top five with $9.4 million for fourth place. The Circle opened at number five with $9.1 million.

Here is a look at a few films that are opening on May 5th.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (PG-13) 137 mins.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will make all the money this weekend, including yours. Marvel managed to turn an obscure, out-there comic into a legit smash hit with the last one, and this one looks to go bigger and bolder with the concept. Plus, Groot is a baby now, and no one can resist the charms of Baby Groot. Expect this to take the number one spot easily, and probably hang onto it for a couple of weeks.

The Bottom Line

Guardians of the Galaxy will take number one, while Vin Diesel’s slightly less intelligible role will fall to second place. Is it crazy to think The Boss Baby might climb back up to third place? Because that’s what I’m saying. It’s a weird weekend, so let’s say Bahubaali hits fourth. And then Beauty and the Beast at number five, because why not?

King Arthur: Legend of the SwordSnatched (May 12th)
