Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Clobbers Guardians With $65 Million Box-Office Opening
The “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” are back on top after two decades, and the heroes on the half-shell returned in style, racking up an estimated $65 million in their first three days to conquer the North American box office.
 
That knocked Marvel's superhero space romp “Guardians of the Galaxy” from the top spot after just a week. Peter Quill, Groot and Rocket Raccoon held well in their second week and brought in $41.5 million for Disney, but the weekend belonged to everyone's favorite wise-cracking mutant reptiles, Donatello, Raphael, Leonardo and Michelangelo.
 
With producer Michael Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman giving the gang a muscular special-effects update, “Ninja Turtles” blew past the expectations of analysts, who had the turtle tale opening at around $45 million.
 
It was the second straight week that the No. 1 film exceeded projections, and for the second consecutive week the struggling summer box office got a much-needed lift. The overall weekend was up roughly 17 percent over the comparable frame last year, though the season is still down at least 15 percent from last's year's record-breaker.
