The sequel to "Prometheus," which claimed not to be a prequel to "Alien," has a strong but not great opening, earning $36 million to nudge "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2," which isn't coy about being a sequel, out of the top spot.
The second outing of "Guardians of the Galaxy" shows strong signs in its second weekend, while "Snatched" and "King Arthur: Legend of the Sword" disappoint.
"Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2" beats expectation with $145 million domestic opening, $427 million worldwide.
Though it dropped precipitously from weekend one to two, "The Fate of the Furious" still had enough in the tank to handily beat all new comers at the box office.
The eighth film in the franchise shows no signs of slowing down, banking more than $100 million at the U.S. box office and more than $400 million in the international market.
"Boss Baby" leads the way at the box office as no new movies manage to crack the top three.
The Indianapolis Museum of Art has some hits & misses in this year's Summer Series films.
"The Boss Baby" barely beat out "Beauty and the Beast," which is quickly approaching the $1 billion mark globally.
