Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" Passes $700 Million Globally

Bringing new meaning to the phrase, "You're welcome," ComingSoon.net reports that Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" has officially crossed the $700 million mark in total worldwide box office gross, making it the fourth Marvel film to pass that mark. It's also the only film with that honor that doesn't heavily feature previously-introduced Marvel characters. The film is currently sitting at $326.7 million domestic and $378.4 million internationally, for a grand total of $705.1 million worldwide.

The film, directed by James Gunn and released August 1, helped put a cap on the summer blockbuster season of 2014 and went on to become the highest-grossing August film release in history. It was also the first film of 2014 to cross the $300 million mark.

"Guardians" is the latest in a string of hits for the studio, which also debuted "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" earlier this year -- another of the four Marvel films to reach the $700 million mark worldwide. A sequel has already been announced with James Gunn reprising his role as director.
