Weekend Box Office Wrap Up: August 24th, 2014 One comic book adaptation reclaimed the top spot at the box office this weekend, while another flopped big time. Returning to the top spot after two weeks at number 2 is Guardians of the Galaxy with $17.6 million. As is typically the case with Marvel features, Guardians used a weekend highlighted by underperformers to make its play for the top spot yet again. Thus far, the film has grossed $251 million domestic (#3) and $489 million worldwide (#10), and is the highest grossing movie of the summer.
