A couple of days late but had to wait for those final Labor Day Weekend numbers and the winner is ... "Guardians of the Galaxy" in it's 5th week earns an additional 22.9 million for the holiday and now with a cume of just over 280, making it's way to 300+! Holding ground at #2 is "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" with another 15.6 mil as it will struggle to hit 200 mil. Hanging on to #3 is "If I Stay" with another 11.8 mil for this romantic drama. Also hanging on to #4 is "Let's Be Cops" with 10.4 mil in it's 3rd week. Rounding off the top 5 and new at #5 is "As Above, So Below" with a debut of 10.3 mil which is slightly below expectations.
New movies that did not make the top 5:
Just one this week as "November Man" only manages 10.1 mil and enough for the #6 spot and also well below expectations.
New movies next week:
Now that the Summer is officially over, we should see a little lull at the box office in both product and numbers. A good time for studios to clean a little house of product while about to start their Winter release campaigns and Award Season! With that, just one semi-wide release next week as "The Identical" will see 1,000+ screens and might make a couple of mil.
