No matter how you look at it, Guardians of the Galaxy was a massive success. Here in the U.S., it was the third-biggest movie of 2014, taking in $333 million at the box office. Internationally, it did even better; worldwide, it grossed $774 million. With its origins in a popular Marvel comic, an all-star cast and the weight of Disney behind it, very few people were surprised at how well the movie did. Some of those people, though, were the people making the movie! Star Chris Pratt admits they were caught off guard by how big a blockbuster the movie became.
