I have never been more thrilled to be wrong! Guardians of the Galaxy blasted the competition and regained the top spot bringing home $17.6 million in its 4th week of release.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles slipped to number two with $16.8 million and a domestic total of $145.6 million.
If I Stay opened at number three with $16.3 million. With a small budget of just $11 million, color this tear jerker a hit.
Let’s Be Cops got paroled at number four with $11 million. A modest budget of $17 million and a domestic total of $45 million could indicate a sequel.
The football drama When the Game Stands Tall fumbled, opening at number five with $9 million.
The Giver took in another $6.7 million at number six. It’s probably good this book is a stand-alone and not a series. I’m not sure we’d ever see the sequels if they existed.
The Expendables 3 sank to number seven with $6.6 million and a domestic total of $27.5 million.
Sin City: A Dame to Kill For was condemned, opening at number eight with just $6.4 million. Production and release delays did not help this franchise at all.
The Hundred-Foot Journey snacked at number nine with $5.5 million.
Rounding out the top ten was Into the Storm with $3.8 and domestic total of $38 million. Looks like their $50 million budget got swept away.

With literally nothing big opening at all on Labor Day Weekend, I’m going to put my chips on Chris Pratt and say the Guardians will be number one again next weekend. Tune in to see if I’m
Until then, happy movie going.
