"Guardians of the Galaxy" is a fourth-time winner of the box office. The Marvel movie stays atop with an estimated $10.2 million over the weekend, taking a total domestic gross of $294.6 million after six weeks of release. Internationally, the James Gunn-directed pic earns $11.5 million this weekend for a worldwide total of $586.2 million.

The continuous triumph of "Guardians" happens during slowest sales weeks of the year. According to Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for box-office tracker Rentrak, the total for all films released this week is $65 million, which is 23 percent lower than last year. However, Dergarabedian believed it was meant to be.

"This is the no man's land between the end of the summer season and the start of Oscar season and the big holiday movie season," he told EW earlier this week. "This is just one of those weekends that are always expected to be slow. It's nothing to be alarmed about, the sky is not falling, it's just post-Labor Day weekend and we have to live through it."

At the second spot, "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" adds an estimated $6.5 million this week. "If I Stay" takes the third place with approximately $5.8 million, followed by "Let's Be Cops" with an estimated $5.4 million. At the fifth place, "The November Man" rakes in an estimated $4.2 million. This weekend's only new release "The Identical" bombs at the eleventh place with approximately $1.9 million.
