Guardians of the Galaxy is now Marvel's Third Highest Grossing Film

I don't think I need to reiterate the huge and unexpected success of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy (read our review here). At this point everyone knows how big of a risk it was and how surprising the box office results were and all that.

Recently, the news broke that Guardians had crossed at $700 million dollar mark (worldwide). Now, it's confirmed that Guardians is in fact the third highest grossing Marvel movie to date, behind The Avengers and Iron Man 3, which both crossed the $1 billion dollar mark. The Avengers is actually the third highest grossing film of all time.

It's surprising that Guardians has surpassed movies such as Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Iron Man at the box office and it just proves that whatever Marvel makes will dominate at the box office. However, this won't last for Guardians. The next Marvel movie is Avengers: Age of Ultron and it will, without any doubt, pass Guardians. I think it will cross the $1 billion dollar mark and will either become the third highest grossing Marvel film or take Iron Man 3's place for second. I don't think it will take first place from The Avengers. Regardless, it's exciting that Guardians has done so well when all the odds were against it.
