NORTH AMERICA: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Adds $0.98M in First Sub-$1 Million Day on Wednesday

Disney reports that Guardians of the Galaxy added $0.975 million in first place on Wednesday, off 35 percent from the same day last week. The year’s top grosser so far has now accumulated $283.6 million through 34 days of release, 1.3 percent ahead of the pace of Marvel’s first Iron Man. Yesterday marked the film’s first day below the $1 million mark, a streak it maintained for an impressive 33 days–six more than Captain America: The Winter Soldier and just five short of Iron Man.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles posted $0.546 million yesterday for a 50 percent week-to-week decline. The reboot continues to impress relative to pre-release expectations as its total now stands at $167.7 million–25 percent ahead of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra at the same point in release.

Pierce Brosnan’s The November Man took in $0.54 million on Wednesday, representing a 37 percent decline from opening day one week ago. That gives the film $13.2 million in all through 8 days of release, 20 percent behind The Debt.

If I Stay grabbed $0.45 million on Wednesday, off 57 percent from last week and boosting its cume to $33.5 million through 13 days. That’s 21 percent ahead of where the fellow Chloe Grace Moretz-led Carrie stood at the same point.

Meanwhile, As Above/So Below added $0.47 million in its sixth day of release, bringing its total to $11.4 million. The horror/thriller pic is pacing 3 percent behind Apollo 18.
