The first film brought us its mixed bag of characters.
Just like the original, "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2" is a fun and hilarious film.
Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape Vol. 2, Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the team's adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos.
James Gunn and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy 2 has now passed the $500 million mark.
Here are the worldwide highlights so far: China $80.5M; United Kingdom $42.5M; Russian Federation $23.1M; Germany $23.0M; Australia $20.1M; France $20.1M; Korea $18.6M; Brazil $17.8M; Mexico $17.1M; Spain $8.5M; Italy $7.4M; and Indonesia $7.2M.
Returning director James Gunn opens the movie with the Guardians, composed of returning cast Chris Pratt as Star-Lord/Peter Quill, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Bradley Cooper as Rocket Racoon and Vin Diesel as Baby Groot in one of the best opening scenes the Marvel Cinematic Universe has produced yet.
There's curiously little for the Guardians to do until the end, so the movie pairs them off with non-Guardians.
19% of the viewers was made up of families with great love for such movies.

Andy Murray loses out as Austrian lands a British hat-trick
Thiem started strong, breaking Murray's first two service games before adding a third break en route to taking the first set. Thiem's game just fell apart since then thanks to that deadly Nadal blow and he cut a sorry figure for the rest of the set.
In his travels, he discovers that the father on Earth who left his mother to eventually die of cancer before her son's eyes was someone from the stars.
Another subplot-the film has quite a few-involves Michael Rooker's disgraced Yondu looking for redemption. Added to that, don't be surprised to see it climb a little once actuals come in tomorrow and possibly improve on the 56.6% second weekend drop for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
Next week should belong to ALIEN: COVENANT, although it remains to be seen how well audiences will respond to Ridley Scott's latest Alien film.
The film taps the teen comedy genre in the retelling of Spider-Man's origin story as his alter-ego Peter Parker navigates the perils of high school.
Sylvester Stallone, who is not required to wear heavy makeup, makes a brief appearance as a renegade thief, and while he doesn't share screen time with Russell, we'll just go ahead and call this a Tango & Cash reunion.
A different entity certainly makes him sound as though he might be part of the mysterious Watcher race himself.
Russell proves to be perfectle cast as Quill's bombastic father, with Pratt possessing numerous legendary action film star's alluring traits.
I knew that from before I started the first movie. I think we only cut one short scene maybe two short scenes in the movie. Both Taneleer Tivan and En Dwi Gast are Elders of the Universe, and there's speculation that their relationship will play out in the MCU somehow-starting with the awaited Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: Breakout attraction in DisneyLand.
