A few weeks ago, this column was skeptical that Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' could reach $300 million. Now, it seems impossible that it won't. Thanks to ecstatic word of mouth, killer marketing and only one genuinely successful box office challenger (that would be 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles'), Marvel's oddball space opera has managed to spend three of the past four weekends at the number one spot at the box office, giving it enough momentum to officially become the highest grossing film of 2014.
The November Man
'The November Man' very much wants to remind you that its star once played James Bond. Yes, Pierce Brosnan is back, once again playing the action hero in a spy movie. The casting seems compelling enough, and the 'November Man' trailer sees Brosnan straddling an interesting line between 007 and Liam Neeson in 'Taken,' very much looking his age but making it work for him.
