Guardians of the Galaxy pulled in an estimated $17.6-million this weekend (to TMNT's $16.8-million), bringing its total U.S. gross to an estimated $251.88-million. In doing so, GotG has become the highest grossing summer movie of 2014, and the third-highest grossing film of the year; still in its sights are The Lego Movie (currently in the #2 position for 2014, with a total gross of $257.75-million) and frontrunner Captain America: The Winter Soldier (which closed this weekend at $259.77-million).

As much as I enjoyed GotG, I have to put my vote to Winter Soldier as the best movie this summer. Watching it again on digital streaming just reminded me of how much I loved the beats in the movie. I felt that same excitement again from the comfort of my couch. I can only imagine where Cap 3 takes us next. But hopefully it'll be from a Bru story idea.
