BOX OFFICE: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Is Now 2014's Third Highest Grossing Release When 2014 ended, Guardians of the Galaxy was the year's highest grossing movie. However, money earned this year still counts towards their overall haul, and that's why The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 became 2014's #1 movie on January 21st. It's a weird sounding system, but that's just how it works! Regardless, they've both now been overtaken by American Sniper. The Clint Eastwood helmed biopic (which actually stars the voice of Rocket Raccoon, Bradley Cooper) with an estimated $337,209,000.
