Box Office: 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Takes Long Weekend Top Spot Labor Day tends to be a slow one on the box office calendar, and accordingly, none of the new contenders managed to break through to the top spot this weekend. Everyone is doing something other than going to the movies, but for those that they did, they chose one of the biggest movies of the year. Disney and Marvel closed off the summer on a high note, with "Guardians Of The Galaxy" arriving at number one. The superhero flick took $17 million at home, and continues to make serious coin, with the worldwide total now approaching $550 million.
