Seems like Marvel Studios really hit the jackpot with Guardians of the Galaxy. So far the movies has made more than $500 million globally from ticket sales. And that’s not all. Over Labor Day weekend, box office analysis confirmed that “Guardians of the Galaxy” will be the #1 movie of the year.
Over this weekend the film earned over $20 million which made it the #1 movie of the holiday. Guardians of the Galaxy surpassed two of this summer’s big action epics, Captain America – Winter Soldier and Transformers – Age of Extinction. In its fifth week in release, the Marvel sci-fi action-comedy also became 2014’s biggest hit domestically.
For the weekend, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles took the #2 slot, collecting $11.8 million at North American (U.S. and Canadian) theaters through Sunday.
