“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” is on track for its second straight box office win with Friday night pulling in $16.4 million at 4,347 theaters despite debuts from both “King Arthur” and “Snatched.” It is expected to amass a total of $63.5 by weekend’s end.
Saturday estimates show Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn’s “Snatched” barely beating Warner Bros.’ “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” starring Jude Law and Charlie Hunnam this Mother’s Day weekend. “Snatched” took in an estimated $5 million from 3,501 theaters Friday night. “King Arthur” managed to attract a slightly higher number of $5.3 million from 3,702 theaters, but it is still projected to place third after tallying the three day totals.
“Snatched” is expected to make $16 million this weekend, while “King Arthur”‘s potential numbers continue to fall it’s now facing a $14 million debut. While neither movie is performing particularly well, the $175 million budget attached to “King Arthur” is setting the actioner up for a royal box office bomb.
