    Alright, Marvel fans and/or movie fans in America. LISTEN UP. The weekend estimates for Guardians of the Galaxy report it opened up $94 million, but, while we are at it, let’s try to get it to make an extra $1.1 million dollars to beat Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s opening weekend record by the end of the night. It might not beat Transformers 4, well, maybe it could if it pulls an Avengers surprise, but it might be able to beat Captain America 2′s opening weekend record. SO, C’MON GUYS. DONT STOP, KEEP GOING. HURRY BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE. LET’S DO IT.
