BOX OFFICE: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Rockets Past $400 Million Worldwide
With over $222 million domestically (a figure which puts it on course to be 2014's highest grossing movie in North America), Guardians of the Galaxy hit another landmark this weekend with a current worldwide total of over $400 million. Read on for details!
After earning an additional $24.7 million this weekend by again finishing at #2 (behind Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and in front of new release, The Expendables 3), James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy has a current total of $222.3 million in North America. With an additional $196.4 from overseas locations, that gives the movie a worldwide cume of $418.7 million after opening a little over two weeks ago. Bear in mind that it has yet to hit countries like Japan and China, so those will help push its numbers even higher. Of course, Guardians of the Galaxy still has plenty of time to earn more in the countries it's currently showing in, though it's difficult at this point to predict where it will finish. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 earned $708.2 million, Captain America: The Winter Soldier took $714 million and X-Men: Days of Future Past sits on top with $744 million. Still the year's highest grossing movie though is Transformers: Age of Extinction with over $1 billion.
