“Guardians of the Galaxy” rakes in $94 million in debut weekend

‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ (featuring a hunky, sometimes shirtless Chris Pratt of Parks and Recreation) wins this weekend’s box office race racking up over $94 million. Initial estimates were in the $65-70 million range. This sets a new record for an August domestic debut, topping the $69.3 million opening of 2007’s “The Bourne Ultimatum.”

Last weekend’s winner ‘Lucy’ drops to second place with $18.2 million.

Rounding out third place is ‘Get On Up’ with $14 million.
