‘Turtles’ Defend Top Position From ‘The Expendables’

Ninja Turtles

The summer film season is now reaching its conclusion with the arrival of not only a star-packed blockbuster and a silver screen adaption of a YA-fiction novel, but yet another buddy cop comedy. Despite all of that action between the new titles, not one has surpassed last week’s top film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or even the prior week’s top dog, Guardians of the Galaxy.

That’s not to say that these three haven’t made a dent. It’s just that they were no match for TMNT‘s $28.4 million haul. Although it was the first to come to theaters starting this past Wednesday, Let’s Be Cops was the leader of the pack with $17.7 million. The Expendables 3, which was expected to dominate this weekend, pulled out a meager $16.2 million, making it the worst premiere of the franchise’s history. Coming in behind that would be The Giver, which made an estimated $12.7 million.
