NORTH AMERICA: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Passes $297 Million Domestically on Wednesday

Disney reports that Guardians of the Galaxy tacked on another $0.73 million on Wednesday, off just 25 percent from the same day last week. The Marvel blockbuster’s domestic tally now stands at $297.2 million, 2 percent ahead of the pace of the original Iron Man.

Fox’s Let’s Be Cops added $0.44 million yesterday for a strong 14 percent week-to-week decline. With $68.2 million in the bank so far, the R-rated comedy continues to hold up very well in the post-summer market.

Relativity’s The November Man claimed third place yesterday with $0.41 million. That figure eased 24 percent from last week and brings the pic’s cume to $19.4 million, 17 percent behind the pace of The Debt.

Paramount’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles took in $0.37 million on Wednesday, down, 33 percent from last week. The reboot’s tally stands at a strong $175.9 million.

Rounding out the top five, Disney’s The Hundred-Foot Journey posted $0.33 million for a 13 percent week-to-week decline. The flick has tallied $46.6 million to date.

Meanwhile, last week’s new release, The Identical, pulled $0.14 million yesterday. With $2.05 million in the bank through 6 days of release, the faith-based flick is unfortunately performing well below the levels it needs to recoup its estimated $30 million production budget.
