Well, Guardians of the Galaxy has surpassed Green Lantern's total domestic box office draw in only five days and will probably blow by GL's worldwide total in a week.
Green Lantern netted a domestic total of $116.6 million back in 2011.
Guardians of the Galaxy in its first five days of opening took in about $118 million.
Currently, Guardians of the Galaxy has a $126.7 million domestic gross, with another $66.4 million coming from international audiences giving it a total of around $193.15 million.
Green Lantern totalled about $220 million for its entire worldwide showing.
More than likely with yesterday and today's Guardians of the Galaxy box office performance added in, the James Gunn-directed movie will outperform Green Lantern's entire run in about a week.
Marvel and Disney also announced a Guardians of the Galaxy sequel before the movie even premiered.
