Weekend Box Office Report: 'Guardians' and 'Ninja Turtles' Continued Their Dominance

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles spent another weekend at the top of the box office. The newcomers -- The November Man and As Above/So Below -- performed just as expected.

After recapturing the top spot from Ninja Turtles last weekend, Guardians managed to remain there with a $22.9 million take over the four-day Labor Day holiday.

Second place Ninja Turtles is still a favorite at the cinemas and continues to prove critics wrong with a $15.6 million take over the same time period.

A sequel may not be in the cards, but the big screen adaptation of Gayle Forman's romance novel If I Stay remained in third place at $11.7 million.

Fox's comedy Let's Be Cops came in fourth at $10.4 million. Universal's found footage horror movie As Above/So Below rounded out the top five at $10.3 million. Pierce Brosnan's action thriller The November Man just missed the cut at $10.1 million.

Box Office Top Five:

1. Guardians of the Galaxy -- $22.9M, $554.3M total
2. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles -- $15.6M, $278.4M total
3. If I Stay -- $11.8M, $36.9M total
