Guardians of the Galaxy continue to find success at a slow release time as they are able to bring in an estimated $10.1 million over the weekend. The movie should be able to cross over that $300 million mark next week. Guardians is currently the 8th highest grossing film in the Marvel universe and the 4th highest first film in a series.

 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles still does well bringing in an estimated $6.5 million. The movie is starting to slow down at the box office, but it could still find its way to the $200-million mark by the end of it’s run, only needing around $25 million more.

The next two movies were close at the box office, but If I Stay comes in at the third spot with an estimated $5.7 million beating out Let’s Be Cops with an estimated $5.4 million.

Rounding out the top 5 is The November Man, which makes its first appearance in the top five, with an estimated $4.2 million.

There are quite a few good movies set to come out this month, so expect some changes in the top five in the coming weeks.

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

“Guardians” once again takes the top spot at box office

In a relatively slow weekend at the box office, there were only two movies that were able to get to double digits, and neither of the two new movies were able to do that.

Guardians of the Galaxy becomes the highest grossing film of 2014 so far over the weekend. The movie took in an estimated $16.3 million bringing it’s domestic box office to $274 million moving past Captain America: Winter Soldier which took in $259 million during it’s stay. This should be a hard amount to beat, especially considering it should surpass $300 million by the time it leaves the box office.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles continues to do well as it brings in an estimated $11.7 million over the weekend. The movie should be able to pass the $200 million mark by the time it leaves the box office, only need another $40 million or so to get there.

as above so below

Despite having a 38% approval rating, If I Stay continues to do well with an estimated $9 million over the weekend. The movie is considered one of the best romantic movies of the year (though one could argue that The Fault in Our Stars is the best one).

For the rest of the top five, new movie As Above/So Below brings in an estimated $8.3 million in it’s first weekend and Let’s Be Cops takes in an estimated $8.2 million. The other big new movie to come out is The November Man and brought in an estimated $7.6 million it’s first weekend.

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