'Guardians of the Galaxy' likely to take the lead this weekend domestically

According to ComicBook.com on Saturday, it seems with "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" likely to make only half its box office projections this weekend and "If I Stay" also having lackluster results, it appears that "Guardians of the Galaxy" will intend on taking the number one lead at the U.S. box office. The James Gunn directed film is thought to make around $17 to $18 million and is likely to be followed up by "Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles" and "If I Stay" together, neck and neck to take in around $15 and $16.5 million.

It appears that "Guardians of the Galaxy" is seemingly remaining consistent with being the largest domestic popular film and likely to over run $250 million after this weekend. On top of that, the soundtrack had a download amount of 2,000 upon the preview premiere and a very high amount of downloads of the Blue Swede "Hooked on a Feeling" song amounted to 2,800 downloads.

This seems to make sense as this particular song in the film was something Star-Lord was impassioned about when the Kyln guard was utilizing his cassette tape player. Even to the point where Drax thought him an imbecile for attempting to retrieve it upon their escape from the Nova owned prison.

"Parks and Recreation's" Chris Pratt is on track to be the first actor this year to make $500 million in films in the U.S. He had even recently visited children in hospital in Los Angeles wearing the Star-Lord outfit. He had worked with the Children's Miracle Network Hospital and Marvel to make such an arrangement for an appearance.
