The movie of the summer might have been Marvel's irreverent hit "Guardians of the Galaxy," the top domestic film at the box office.When the season sputters to a close on Monday, the summer box office -- regardless of whatever is added to the coffers by weekend front-runner "Guardians" -- will be about 15 percent down from last year's summer.Many in Hollywood will often remind that the movies, after all, are ultimately a content-driven business.One likely best picture-nominee did emerge over the summer, though: Richard Linklater's "Boyhood," a unique coming-of-age film made over 12 years.Of the top 10 films at the box office, how many do you think were original?Sequels are expected to stomp through the summer, but this year none surpassed $250 million domestically.Two of the top movies of the year ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "The LEGO Movie") were released in spring, usually the homely sidekick to summer's dashing hero.The year boasts arguably the two most lucrative franchises in movies: "Star Wars" and "Avengers".The first "Avengers" film in 2012 was the highest grossing summer movie ever.
