Well, it's official.
That's pretty good for a rag tag team that no one has heard about before (well, no one outside the comic book world -- and even then it was a small crowd).
Guardians of the Galaxy currently has about $222 million at the box office in the U.S., with a total haul of close to $419 million.
Sony's Amazing Spider-Man 2 had a total U.S. gross of close to $203 million.
Godzilla came in at $200.5 million, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes had $201.8 million in the U.S.
A sequel for Guardians of the Galaxy was greenlit at Comic-Con previous to the movie coming out.
In case you are wondering, the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie isn't doing that bad as it's been the #1 movie the past two weekends. It's already netted close to $118 million domestically, with a sequel greenlit as well.
