In it’s opening weekend, the new Michael Bay produced and Jonathan Liebesman directed live-action reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles earned a solid $65m domestic and $94m worldwide. Earnings that happened to be good enough to land it the number one spot in the box office. However, with a current Rotten Tomatoes score of 19%, let’s hope that Master Splinter can guide the guys towards another successful weekend so that they can make back that $125m production budget.
James Gunn’s masterpiece, Guardians of the Galaxy, dropped to number two this weekend earning $42m domestic. The film’s worldwide total now sits at approximately $313m. If you haven’t seen this movie yet you’re missing out big time. Give Marvel your money already!
Into The Storm, the destruction film about a small town devastated by multiple tornadoes, opened at number three with earnings of $18m.
Disney’s latest drama, The Hundred-Foot Journey, landed in the the fourth spot this weekend earning $11m. Being met with generally positive reviews, the film stars Helen Mirren as a chef that takes an unlikely protégé under her wing to teach her the tricks of the culinary trade.
It’s quickly losing momentum, but Lucy managed to stay in the top five bringing in $7m domestic to add to a collective worldwide total of $112m.
