After intense promotion, Guardians of the Galaxy emerged from the weekend a box office record holder. With $94 million, Guardians had the biggest August opening ever. Which begs the question – now that Chris Pratt (aka Peter Quill, aka Star Lord) is a legit movie star, will he hold on to it?
Pratt was the only “wild card” going into the project. His previous role, on Parks & Rec, made him a fan favorite, but lacked the exposure needed to launch a successful film career.
