Guardians of the Galaxy continues its success as it has now become Marvel Studios' third biggest movie in the U.S.

With Guardians of the Galaxy now grossing about $319.1 million domestically, it has now passed Iron Man.

It's tailing Marvel's #2 movie in the U.S., Iron Man 3, by about $90 million.

The Avengers is the current bread winner for Marvel with a domestic gross of about $623.3 million.

To date, Guardians of the Galaxy has a worldwide gross of about $644.3 million, which gives it the fifth rank overall among Marvel Studios movies and sixth overall for Marvel comic book movies.

Guardians will pass by Thor 2 shortly and become the fourth best Marvel Studios movie as it's just shy by about $10 million.

James Gunn is pretty excited by the news as well:
