          Yeah, I still do not get why this particular movie did so well. I have heard so-so things about it. Other than being about dinosaurs and having Chris Pratt in it I am not sure what it has going on with it different than the other JP movies.

        That's all that's necessary for it to do this well. Chris Pratt is the current Hollywood golden boy, and dinos are always awesome.

    Even with golden boys, would that alone account for a ~$50 million boost? Seems that we have had those in blockbusters before and it helps the bottom line but not necessarily that much. People really wanting a dinosaur movie more than expected I guess, I think Pratt helped the cause but only so much.

It's got to be Pratt. I've always been a fan of his but even I'm shocked by the amount of success he's getting. He went from being a fat schlub to leading man material within a year. (Parks & Rec season 5 Andy and Parks and Rec season 6 Andy look totally different)

I mean there was no reason for Guardians of the Galaxy to be as successful as it was (people weren't clamoring for a GOTG movie) and I really don't think it ever could have worked with another lead actor. Pratt's goofiness sold it.

Pratt's the new it guy right now. Which is great because I actually like him.
