“Guardians” top the weekend box office


There is a new number one movie this weekend, with the Turtles falling down from the top spot. Two of the three new movies were able to get into the top five but only one of them hit double digits.

Guardians of the Galaxy return to the top of the box office as it’s able to bring in an estimated $17.6 million over the weekend. This movie is the 3rd highest movie of the year so far with its total $251 million box office and should be able to grab the top spot from Captain America: Winter Solider by the end of next weekend, needing only another $9 million to do so.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie falls from the top spot with an estimated $16.8 million. The reboot has exceeded expectations taking the top spot for the last two weeks before falling this week. The movie has now surpassed its $125 million budget and is looking to get to the $200 million mark.

The only new movie to hit double digits this week is the adaptation from Gayle Forman, If I Stay. The movie was able to bring in an estimated $16.3 million. Early reviews have stated the movie is more for fans of the book which might hurt the movie in the long run for the total box office.

Let’s Be Cops falls in the charts with an estimated $11 million. This buddy comedy beat out it’s $17 million budget in the first week and is looking to maybe work its way up to the $100 million mark.

The other two movies to come out are When the Game Stands Tall with an estimated $9 million and Sin City: A Dame to Die For with an estimated $6.4 million.

For the rest of the box office, you can go here.
