“Guardians of the Galaxy
” director James Gunn
is “profoundly grateful” for fans who made it to theaters this weekend to help his Marvel movie blow away August box office records. “Thanks to all of you who saw (and are seeing) ‘Guardians of the Galaxy
' this weekend, from the bottom of my heart,” Gunn wrote in a letter he posted on Facebook Sunday. “The Guardians are a group of oddballs, outcasts, and geeks. The movie is for anyone who ever felt cast aside, left out, or different. It's for all of us who don't belong. This movie belongs to you.
