Superhero extravaganza recaptures No.1 spot

Disney/Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ returned to the No.1 spot at the North American weekend box office after grossing a strong $17.6m over the three days.  The superhero extravaganza took its overall domestic tally to an impressive $251.9m after four weekends in play and became the summer season’s most successful film along the way.

 

Last weekend’s No. 1, ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’, sneaked second place after being behind most of the weekend.  Paramount’s reboot grossed a so-so $16.7m during its third weekend and now stands on a domestic $145.5m.

 

R.J. Cutler’s big screen version of Gayle Forman’s YA bestseller, ‘If I Stay’, starring Chloë Grace Moretz, could not secure the top spot notwithstanding a lively start and an ‘A- CinemaScore’ from first night audiences.  It opened on a slightly disappointing $16.35m.

 

Sony TriStar’s sport drama, ‘When the Game Stands Tall’, also received an ‘A- CinemaScore’ that failed to make much impact beyond the genre faithful and it debuted in fifth place with $8.75m, fractionally below market expectations.

 

And the other wide weekend opener, Frank Miller‘s and Robert Rodriguez’s ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill’, bombed.  The ‘R’-rated sequel failed to connect after a nine year delay since the original and could only muster an abysmal $6.35m.  A disappointing ‘B- CinemaScore’ did nothing for the film’s fortunes.
