Guardians Of The Galaxy Has Hit A Huge Box Office Milestone
The numbers are in, and at the time of this article’s publication, Box Office Mojo says that James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy has passed the $500 million mark globally with a total of $500,527,773 earned so far. The film got off to a huge, record-setting start at the beginning of this month with a $94 million opening, and even though it has been in theaters for 26 days it still sits at the number one spot on the Top 10. While some blockbusters have proven to either be more successful either at home or abroad, Guardians of the Galaxy so far has found a nice even split between the two markets. Here in the United States the action adventure flick has made $255 million (51% of the total) and in foreign territories it has pulled in $245 million (49% of the total). These numbers make Guardians of the Galaxy the biggest hit in the U.S. in the weeks since May 1st, with Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction being bumped to second place with its $243 million total so far. That said, the Marvel movie is still nowhere near the robots in disguise in terms of international box office, as Transformers 4 has so far made more than $1.065 billion globally. Unlike Transformers, however, Guardians has not yet been released in major markets like Germany, Italy, Japan and China, where Michael Bay’s latest made more than $372 million.
