Marvel’s supposedly big gamble just had the unquestionably biggest night of any film thus far in 2014. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY earned $11.2 million last night and is well on its way to having the biggest opening weekend ever in August. The film’s Cinemascore won’t be determined until tonight, but it currently sits at 92% on Rotten Tomatoes, which bodes very well for strong word-of-mouth.
