Guardians at $490 million worldwide
Starlord, Gamora, Drax, Groot and Rocket have become the biggest draw of the USA summer blockbuster slate after pressing past the earnings of Captain America Winter Soldier. Edging back into the #1 spot in America after two weeks trailing the reboot Ninja Turtles, Marvels space opera / superheroic sci-fi film is back in the lead with it's 1970s pop soundtrack and comedy dialogue.
After 26 days in theaters, and with a domestic haul of $251 million combined with the worldwide take to grand total at $489,056,069 Million, the film is still running hard on repeat viewings and excellent word of mouth reviews.
