Sin City 2 fails to impress at weekend box-office

A very disappointing start for the follow-up to the 2005 hit ‘Sin City,’ the sequel, ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ only managed to reach eighth place overall at the domestic box-office in the film’s opening weekend. The summer film only managed to bring-in about $6.5 million-dollars domestically, considerably low for the film’s expected appeal, and dominated by the film’s opening competition ‘If I Stay’.

Back on top this week is the #1 movie for the summer “Guardians Of The Galaxy,” from Disney/Marvel bringing in $17.6 million this weekend, and raising the total across the nation to almost $252 million overall. Second place this weekend went to “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” from Paramount with $16.8 million, that film now has a domestic total of just under $146 million to date.

Also opening this weekend, along with “Sin City 2,” was the Warner Bros. film ‘If I Stay,’ that project had an impressive gain of $16.4 million in the film’s weekend debut.

Still making waves and pulling in ticket-sales is the comedy ‘Let’s Be Cops’ from 20th Century Fox, that film saw an $11 million gain this weekend, bringing the total to $45.2 million.

‘When The Game Stands Tall’ from Sony and ‘The Giver’ from The Weinstein Company were numbers four and five this weekend. Sony’s film saw a $9.1 million-dollar weekend, while TWC added another $6.7 million to ‘The Giver’s’ total, now reaching $24.1 million.
