Not only does it possess some awesome Guardians of the Galaxy quotes, but a story that has millions lining up to see the film across the world. And it hasn’t even opened yet in big markets such as Italy, China (a huge one!), Japan and Germany.

When it was released August 1, Guardians of the Galaxy became Marvel Studios’ tenth straight number one movie and established a record for an August release with its $94.3 million in box office sales.
