North American Box Office – August 15th to 17th


Despite the release of The Expendables 3 and Let’s Be Cops over the weekend Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stayed top for a second week after grossing $28.4m according to studio estimates.  It was a tight competition with Guardians of The Galaxy which managed takings of $24.7m, or $222m since release.

The biggest shock is that The Expendables 3 doesn’t feature in the top 3.  That honour goes to the R rated comedy Let’s be Cops which opened with $17.7m.  The latest Expendables only managed $16.2m which is pretty disastrous for a film which with its second film managed a $28.5m opening weekend.

I’m going to see The Expendables 3 tomorrow night so I’ll be publishing my review on Wednesday and I’ll have more of an idea if its a quality issue.  There’s been a lot of talk about the leak of the full film onto the Internet but beyond those of us obsessed about films who actually new about this?
