The Guardians Of The Galaxy have ended the summer on a high by becoming the year’s highest grossing moving in the U.S.
The action film’s $16.3 million Labor Day weekend take was enough to take it back to the top of the box office for a third week, overtaking fellow Marvel Studios superhero blockbuster Captain America: The Winter Soldier along the way.
Guardians of the Galaxy has now made over $274 million since its release at the beginning of August.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remake comes in second with $11.8 million and Chloe Grace Moretz’s new movie If I Stay rounds out the new top three.
Low-budget horror film As Above, So Below is the week’s highest debut, entering the box office at four with an estimated $8.3 million.
