My faith in humanity is slightly restored, as numerous outlets are reporting that Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is now the highest grossing film of the summer in North America. The film had earned $239 million by Friday and is set to gross an estimated $246 million by Saturday, which would top the expected $243.3 million domestic haul of ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction.’ Marvel’s superhero space opera is pegged to earn $252 million by weekend’s end.

That being said, ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ is the worldwide box office winner by a stretch, having grossed $1.05 billion by Friday (75% of its box office revenue has been made internationally). To date, the film is the only movie to cross $1 billion this year. ‘Guardians the of Galaxy’ has grossed $435.5 million worldwide to date. Marvel’s ‘Captain America: Winter Soldier’ is currently North America’s highest grossing film of 2014 with a North American box office haul of $259.8 million. ‘Guardians’ will likely cross that mark next week.

Back in March, 20th Century Fox revealed that Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang we know and love from Charles Schulz’s timeless ‘Peanuts’ comic strip will be making their big screen debut in CG animated 3D. ‘Snoopy and Charlie Brown: A Peanuts Movie’ will be released in cinemas in 2015. The most popular and influential comic strip of all time, ‘Peanuts’ was read every day by 355 million people in 75 countries. In addition to the famous strip, ‘Peanuts’ holiday television specials such as ‘It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown’ have won Emmy’s and continue to be among the highest rated prime time TV specials.
