Guardians of the Galaxy Passes $300 & $600 Million Marks
The entire globe is hooked on a feeling as it's learned the Marvel Studios Guardians of the Galaxy movie has now passed the $300 million mark domestically and $600 million worldwide.
To date, James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy has brought in $305.926 million in the U.S., with a current worldwide total of $611.526 million.
Guardians of the Galaxy is the top movie of both the Summer and the year in the U.S. beating out the likes of Amazing Spider-Man 2, Captain America 2 and X-Men: Days Of Future Past.
Previous to the release, Marvel announced Guardians of the Galaxy 2 with a July 28, 2017 release, which will see James Gunn return and direct.
James Gunn commented on Facebook about the success of the film:
As of yesterday, we became the first movie of the year to gross more than 300 million domestically. And we also grossed more then 300 internationally to have over 600 million worldwide (luckily I had a calculator handy to figure that out). We just opened in Japan, and are yet to open in China or Italy, so we still have a little bit to go. But I guess it's time for my Saturday morning THANK YOU!
