Box Office Breakdown! Ninja Turtles Slashes Their Way To #1! Guardians Drops To #2! Step Up Stumbles!

I am saddened, shocked, and confused by this week’s box office numbers. Not only did Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have an impressive $65 million opening, they also knocked Guardian of the Galaxy out of the top spot!

Guardians of the Galaxy came in at number two with $41.5 million, dropping 56% from last week’s stellar performance.

Into the Storm swept up the number three spot, opening with $18 million.

The Hundred-Foot Journey served up $11.1 million at number four.

Lucy powered down to number five with $9.3 million.

Step Up All In had two left feet, opening at number six with just $6.5 million. Someone put this franchise out of its misery.

Hercules was weak at number seven with just $5.7 million. The $100 million epic has earned just $63 million domestically.

Get On Up hit a sour note and fell to number eight with $5 million. James Brown would not “feel good” about that.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes gathered another $4.4 million at number nine.

Rounding out the top ten was Planes: Fire & Rescue with $2.4 million.

Check out the full box office chart below:

Next week, the geriatric action stars of Expendables 3 take on the idiotic comedy Let’s Be Cops as well as the latest hit teen novel adapted for film, The Giver. I’ll go out on a limb and say Let’s Be Cops will pull out the win. Tune in to see if I’m right.

let's be cops poser

Until then, happy movie going.
