Hey all – Steve here. Time for some Box Office talk. Look, there was an obvious winner coming into the weekend and it wasn’t close.

Let’s get to the top 5 and see what rocketed to the top spot.

1. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

This one has been in theaters for 8 weeks and makes its return to the top 5 after a one week absence last week. This beast has some staying power.

That’s all for this weekend. Next weekend we get King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and Snatched. Have a great week!
