Well blow me down with a feather. The film hasn’t been released here in the UK but based on the trailers I’ve seen I thought Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles would have no chance of overtaking Guardians of The Galaxy. This was especially true after the latest Marvel project had its monstrous opening.
He might only be producer but there is no doubting the box office power of Michael Bay. The Turtles opened with $65m going straight into number 1 spot with Guardians dropping 55% week-on-week to $42m. The top three was filled out by Into The Storm which managed $17m. This is a less than exciting opening for a film with a $50m production budget. We’ll have to see how the film performs in international markets.
