In it's 4th week, "Guardians of the Galaxy" manages to take back the crown for a power-struggle weekend earning another 17.6 million and a cume of just over 250 mil. It will be a struggle at this point to hit the 300 mark but do-able with Labor Day Weekend still coming up. Slight drop to #2 is "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" with another 16.8 mil as it tries to reach 200 mil but may just fall a bit short. New at #3 is "If I Stay" with a solid 16.4 mil and right on par with predictions. Holding ground at #4 is "Let's Be Cops" with another 11 mil this past weekend. New at #5 is "When the Game Stands Tall" opening with a decent 9 mil, a little below expectations but the film could have some decent legs on it.

New movies that did not make the top 5:
Just one this week and in a major upset, in at #8 is "Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" which only earned 6.5 mil, WAY below any expectation. I had a fear people would not care for the mock-noir style of film and then you throw in end-of-Summer trips, the box office couldn't help this one.

New movies next week:
This coming weekend is a nice 4-day block with Labor Day and we have 2 wide releases. Up first is "The November Man" with Pierce Brosnon playing a spy-like character and could do fair with a close to 20 mil debut. Up next is a thriller-suspense film, "As Above, So Below" and will probably hit mid-teens but could surprise some folks.
