Close race at the top

YA adaptation newcomer and superhero extravaganza go neck and neck during a soft weekend at the North American box office.


R.J. Cutler’s big screen version of Gayle Forman’s bestseller, ‘If I Stay’, starring Chloë Grace Moretz, slowed after a lively start and finished Friday night on a slightly disappointing $6.8m (including $1.1m from Thursday night previews).  This puts it on pace for a $16.5m weekend after factoring in both positive word of mouth from an ‘A- CinemaScore’ and genre front loading.


Disney/Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ was $2m behind on Friday but should perform stronger on Saturday and Sunday for a tight weekend win.  It’s the film’s fourth week in play.


Sony TriStar’s sport drama, ‘When the Game Stands Tall’, opened with a $3m Friday and should gross a solid $10m+ over the weekend ahead of market expectations after receiving an ‘A- CinemaScore’


And the other wide weekend opener, Frank Miller‘s and Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill’, bombed with a truly appalling $2.6m.  The delayed ‘R’-rated sequel – nine years after the original – will struggle to hit $8m over the three days.  The ‘B- CinemaScore’ will not help word of mouth.

Alleged photos of an iphone 6c casing made news in march, but since then speculation has been all over the map, with some claiming that an iphone 6c is coming this year and others saying apple isn’t building one
