The Young Adult trend continues at the box office this weekend as the Chloe Grace Moretz-fronted adaptation If I Stay topped all contenders on Friday with a solid $6.8 million. That’s a far cry from the $26 million that The Fault in Our Stars took in on opening day earlier this year, but still a respectable pull for the $11 million drama. Reviews weren’t as ecstatic as that previous YA film, but fans of both Moretz and author Gayle Forman’s source material look to have turned out for the film, which is on track for a weekend total around $16.5 million. That might not be enough for the number one spot though, as Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has its eye on reclaiming the title with a Friday take of $4.8 million, looking to pull in somewhere between $17.5 million to $17.7 million. On the flipside, the sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For absolutely bombed with a mere $2.6 million on Friday, putting it on track for an opening weekend just under $7 million.
