In what could be one of the biggest box office success stories of the summer, Paramount’s rebooted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has easily snatched first place away Guardians of the Galaxy this weekend. From 3,845 locations, Turtles took in an estimated $65 million – 35% higher than its own studio was expecting just a few days ago. Guardians rang up $41.5 million in its second frame. That’s a drop of 56% and was exactly what was expected – if you overlook the fact that Guardians was also expected to spend a second weekend in first place.
