BOX OFFICE: Cowabunga! TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES Exceeds Expectations With $65M

Many of you were shocked when it was revealed last night that the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would easily take the #1 spot with $60 million, but the latest figures now reveal how exactly both that and Guardians of the Galaxy will do this weekend...

The latest numbers are in, and as it turns out, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles managed to more than double Guardians of the Galaxy's haul at the North American box office yesterday. It opened to $25 million, and is now on course to finish the weekend with $62 - $65 million. That's considerably higher than initial estimates, which had the Michael Bay produced movie finishing at around $45 million at most. This is a good start for the reboot, though time will tell when it comes to a sequel as it doesn't open in some international territories until this Fall. The budget was $125 million, and Paramount Pictures haven't held back when it comes to marketing it, a move which has seemingly paid off for them. As for Guardians of the Galaxy, it looks set to take a respectable $42 million during its second weekend and should pass $177 million by tomorrow night. This is a great result for the latest Marvel Studios movie and we should have some news on its international performance soon. What did you guys watch this weekend? Let us know in the usual place!
