Paramount and Nickelodeon’s ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’, as expected, raised a lot in the box office this week. In their opening, they have a range between $40 million to $45 million. However, it’s still not enough to beat Marvel and Disney’s ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, which opened last weekend with $94.3 million and had the same range with TMNT on their second week. GOT is certainly enjoying record-breaking weekday numbers.
TMNT needs to raise more money to make up with their $125 million budget. Nevertheless, the movie is a hit, especially with families and faithful fans. It is directed by Jonathan Liebsman, TMNT stars Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Danny Woodburn, Abby Elliott, Noel Fisher,Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, Alan Ritchson and Minae Noji. It’s based on the characters created by Peter Laird and Kevin Eastman.
In the film, four outcast brothers rise from the sewer and discovery their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when working with a fearless reporter (Fox) to save New York City from Shredder and his evil Foot Clan (The Hollywood Reporter).
