WWE Superstar Batista has a lot of things to be happy for, one of them being that his movie Guardians of the Galaxy is now the highest-grossing movie of the Summer domestically, surpassing Transformers: Age of Extinction.
Guardians – in which Batista plays Drax the Destroyer and is billed third in the movie – did an additional estimated $17,631,000 for the weekend, regaining the number one spot from Ninja Turtles.
It has so far done $251,884,000 domestically with an additional $237,600,000 in foreign box office receipts. The movie has no way of surpassing Transformers 4 in worldwide numbers though as the Michael Bay flick did just over 1 billion dollars in total sales.
A sequel is already being planned for Guardians which should come as a no surprise.
