Guardians of Galaxy Nab $600million


GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY has cleared the $600 million mark at the worldwide box office this weekend, eclipsing fellow Marvel titles IRON MAN, THOR, and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER.

The film has dragged U.S box office sales into a welcome recovery after a relatively slow year, scoring $300 million in North American takings. It is the first film of the year to achieve this milestone.

Internationally, Guardians cleared the $300 million mark on Saturday, pushing its total past $600 million.

Despite this impressive haul, it will struggle to pass the year’s current leader, Michael Bay’s AGE OF EXTINCTION, which raked in a global gross of $1.077 billion. Guardians sits in eighth place, but is poised to overtake HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 ($605.6 million)


Sian's love for movies spawned from having a tight mother whose generosity stretched only to hiring movies once a week for entertainment. As a pre-teen Sian spent more pocket money then she earned on cinema tickets and thus sought a job at the cinema. Over the next decade she rose to be one of the greats in her backwater, six-screen cinema complex, zooming through the ranks from candy bar wench with upselling superpowers, to pasty projectionist, to a manager rocking a pencil skirt. Sian went on to study Journalism at university though feels her popcorn shovelling days were far more educational
