Topping the charts this Labor Day weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy not only outperformed at the box office, but it became the highest-grossing film this year with US total sales estimated at $247.6 million.
Only in theaters for a month now, the Marvel film pulled in $16 million on what was expected to be slow holiday box office. As the top performing movie of the year, the budget was $170 million in comparison to the over $270 million that it ranked in. It seems like people can't get enough of this superhero film with Chris Pratt.
Bringing competition to the Marvel film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remain in second place with an estimated weekend domestic total of almost $12 million. So far the Ninja Turtles have brought in a total of about $162.5 million, making it come in over the budget of $125 million.
In third place, If I Stay brought in an estimated $9.2 million this weekend. After its first weekend at $16 million, Chloe Grace Moretz is drawing in the audience with her role as a young girl who has an out-of-body experience after a car accident leaves her in a coma.
A new movie, As Above/So Below, debuted at fourth place with around $8.2 million this weekend. The thriller is about a team of explorers that venture into the catacombs that lie beneath the streets of Paris. Haunted by visions and creatures, they must fight to survive.
Let's Be Cops is still making the top five this weekend. Dropping to fifth place from fourth last week, the comedy with Jake Johnson and Damon Wayans Jr. as a fake police duo earned around $8.2 million this weekend. In its 3 weeks, the film has grossed $57 million domestically.
