As the box-office sludges through the next few weeks leading up to October and November’s big releases, smaller films have their time to shine in the spotlight. Now that summer’s films are finally starting to fade from the top-three, two new films move into the top-five this week.
Leading this week’s domestic sales was the Sony Picture’s film ‘No Good Deed,’ opening at number one with $24.5 million in the film’s first weekend in theaters.
Warner Bros.’ family film ‘Dolphin Tale 2’ also opened this week, taking in $16.6 million across the natio, standing tall in the number-two spot. Those two films were enough to finally bump Marvel’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ out of the top-spot and into the number three slot with $8.0 million at the box-office. That means that once again Paramount’s ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ continues to stay one-step behind Guardians, taking in $4.8 million at landing at number four.
Finishing out the top-five is 20th Century Fox’s film ‘Let’s Be Cops,’ that movie brought in another $4.3 million domestically. Also opening this week, and failing to make the top-five, was the film ‘The Drop’ from Fox Searchlight. That film finished the week with $4.2 million.
