Guardians of the Galaxy = $160 Mil
Guardians surpasses expectations with an opening weekend worldwide haul of $160,400,000 million ($94 million domestic, which is an August box office record).
The summer boxoffice for all movies is down $800 million versus last year, but Marvel has brought out a big, fat success to alter those declining numbers somewhat (the other big(ger) winner, Transformers IV, has just cleared the $1 billion dollar mark). For a breakdown of why this summer has been bad and why Guardians is good, see Nikki Finke.com
Transformers IV at $1 billion +
August 4, 2014: Age of Extinction crossed the $1 billion dollar gross mark after 38 days in release with a worldwide money geyser of $1,004,966,000.
$301 million of the foreign earnings comes from China box office. Russia contributed $44 million, with South Korea right behind with $43 million. (Source: Box Office Mojo)
