Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ has blasted to the top of the box office to become the highest-grossing flick of the summer. With just one more week before the season closes, the surprise box office hit has generated $251.8 million in North America. That was enough to topple 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' (which earned $243.8 million) from the top spot, and entrench fellow Disney film 'Maleficent' ($237.58 million) in third place. By week’s end, it is expected to pass 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier', which earned nearly $260 million, making ‘Guardians' the largest money-maker of the year.
