Landing at the top of this weeks UK box office Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 2 takes a fantastic £13 million making it the 41 highest debut ever, behind The Inbetweeners Movie and head of The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers.
The original Guardians of The Galaxy opened to £6.3 million in 2014, good for an untried new franchise, this film had bigger hype and has gained a loyal following and more than doubles the debut gross.
With favourable reviews and stars Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana at the top of their games, and with the best hero at the cinema in Baby Groot were looking at a £40 - £50 million total gross.
Falling from the top after 2 weeks if Fast and Furious 8, a £1.7 million 3rd weekend means that the film has now taken £26 million, it will struggle now to catch up with Fast and Furious 7.

Twenty five years ago
Staying at the top was The Hand The Rocks The Cradle for a second weekend while Denzel Washington starred in the top new film Ricochet at number 3.
We had high hopes but had few thrills, out side of the DC movie Suicide Squad Ghostbusters gave us a good laugh but didn't deliver as expected Finding Dory pulled in the audiences but left us flat.
The rest of the year has some highlights but there is caution as the 2 biggest films are both sequels outside of their parent film series.
Before we even get to them in the latter part of the year we have a number of promises, Captain Fantastic starring Viggo Mortensen looks promising and American hit Kubo and The Two String gives a refreshing animation outside Disney.
Of course we have British favourite Bridget Jones's Baby which is getting good reviews at the moment and a bit after that the recently announced Blair Witch remake/reboot/sequel.
Getting a lot of marketing hype is the remake/retelling of The Magnificent Seven and the looking promising, and a return to form for Tim Burton is Miss Peregrines Home For Peculiar Children.
Tom Hanks returns to detective mode for a third time in Inferno, although I didn't like the previous 2 films and then another sequel emerges mid October with Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher Never Go Back.
Marvel return to their cinematic universe with a new hero in the shape of Doctor Strange and another sequel/reboot come in early November with Rings, the next in (surprise) The Ring series.
After the hotly anticipated Arrival starring Amy Adams arrives the season kicks up a gear with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the first move into the Wizarding World outside Harry Potter.
The film, penned by J. K. Rowling, is being hyped to death and not surprisingly, the 8 Potter films did fantastic business at the box office and this is directed by series expert David Yates whic just seems to get the ideas Rowling writes about.
Warner Bros. will be hoping this shows there is still life in the seemingly dormant series and please fans of the original and set up a new generation, 2 more film are already planned.
After that injection things go quiet with unwanted sequel Bad Santa 2 and Tom Hanks (again) in Scully the story of the pilot who landed a plane on the Hudson River.
Then to finish the year off another much lover series goes off piste with Rogue One A Star Wars Story, taking place just before the events of the original Star Wars.
The trailer have looked good and after the excellence of Star Wars: The Force Awakens expectation are massive.
This is a massive risk for Lucasfilms and Disney, and it will either boost the series to height never imagined or will do to the series what Episodes I - III did and nearly kill it, fortunately it has recovered!
To round the rear off we have Michael Fassbender trying to do what many other have failed to do and bring a video game series to the screen in Assassins Creed.
In a relatively quiet week for new releases Harley Quinn and co. take another $20 million over the 3 day weekend with their total gross now pushed to $262.2 million.
Highest new film of the week if the Jonah Hill starring War Dogs which takes $14.3 million, it comes in ahead of Kubo and the Two Strings and the 2016 remake of Ben-Hur.
The quiet late summer weekend also sees little movement in the lower end of the chart with the longest stay being The Secret Life of Pets again, it is also once again the highest total gross with $346.7 million.
The smallest of the superheroes enters the chart at the top on it's debut week with a $58 million weekend which is in-line with expectations but not up there with the big guns of Thor or Ironman.
This is still a very good opening weekend and is bound to start another franchise in the Marvel/Disney cannon and could see Ant-Man join the other Avengers in their next movie.
Falling into second place after a single week at the top is the lovable yellow characters of the Minions, a second weekend gross of $50 million sees it's 10 days total rise to $216.7 million.
Trainwreck this week enters the chart at 3 as the female slapstick gross out comedy opens with $30 million while British film starring Ian McKellen Mr. Holmes opens at 10 with $2.5 million.
The Theory of Everything made its debut on the UK box office chart on 2nd January this year making a debut at the top.
On its debut weekend of release it took £3.7 million, on the back of the awards it was getting and the fantastic reviews it got.
The film spent an incredible 11 weeks on the top 15 with almost as many after if left with its last appearance being 8th May, in that time it took £21.5 million.
It is the 155th highest grossing movie in the UK of all time.
Falling to the runner up spot is last weeks top film The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies.
Other new film on the video chart this week are: Mythica A Quest For Heroes at number 19 and Wyrmwood Road of The Dead at number 20, both direct to video films.
The runner up was another super hero movie, this time in the form of Batman in The Dark Knight Rises with took $1,078,930,642 globally.
Next up is the top British film of all time as Bond has his best film at the world box office ever and took $983,900,000 in 2012 with Skyfall.
Ice Age: Continental Drift took $877,111,391 making it the fourth best film of the year and the fifth best film is The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 with $794,805,734.
It wouldn't be right to mention 2012 with thinking of The Hobbit: Am Unexpected Journey which has to date taken $686,703,000, and will probably end up near the $1 billion mark making it one of the top film released in 2012 although much of that will be taken in 2013.
When I think back at how good and fresh the original was and then how good and action packed its sequel was I sort of forgive the film maker for the under exciting and run of the mill 3rd instalment, leté─˘s face it, it wasn't that good, in fact in places it was just terrible, but it was the close of the trilogy.
Leté─˘s now leave the franchise alone, maybe let another group revisit it down the line, maybe find a new angle or something, but leté─˘s leave it alone. But no, no no no, Sony being in the business for the money, the trilogy has made a ton of that and comic book heroes raking in big bucks at the box office a fourth is going to be with us by about 2010 I'd say.
Leté─˘s just hope that a new story is devised and a fresh new group of characters are brought into play and we doné─˘t have baddie overkill which ruined the 3rd film. It's in good hands leté─˘s just hope ité─˘s not used just to bring in the bucks for Sony on the back of the good name of Spiderman.
