Over the past few days, Guardians Of The Galaxy officially won the weekend box office for the fourth time since its release. That might not sound like a huge deal, but that almost never happens. In fact, only 4 movies including Guardians have done that since 2000, and only 32 movies have done it since these things started being closely tracked and made available in the early 1980s.
So, yeah, Guardians Of The Galaxy is a hit. You probably knew that already, but in order to properly contextualize it, let’s take a closer look at those 32 movies that won five or more consecutive weekends. Let’s take a trip down memory lane to revisit these incredibly popular movies from our past and remember why they had such a huge impact at the box office.
