It stars Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana as the leaders of a group of galactic warriors. Labor Day weekend ticket sales placed it number one for the third time since it's debut with $16.3 million in U.S. and Canadian ticket sales. That sent its total domestic sales to new heights with more than $270 million so far.
