BOX OFFICE: TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Opens To $4.6M On Thursday Night
The battle between Guardians of the Galaxy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at the North American box office this weekend has intensified as the Michael Bay produced reboot opened to a strong $4.6 million on Thursday night. Read on for details!
$4.6 million. Not bad, eh? Well, it's nowhere near Guardians of the Galaxy's $11.2 million from last week, but this is still a strong start for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and not too different to Maleficent (which earned $4 million when it opened before grossing $69.4 million during its opening weekend). However, analysts believe that the movie will debut with $40 - $45 million, while Paramount believe it could be closer to $50 million. Meanwhile, Guardians of the Galaxy is going to prove itself to be some serious competition as it enters its second week of release, and there's every chance that it WILL be #1 again for the three day period. For now though, we're going to have to wait and see, so stay tuned for updates! It's going to be a close one. What will you guys be watching this weekend?
