MEDIOCRE RETURNS AT LABOR DAY BOX OFFICE

The "meh" box office results for the four-day Labor Day holiday weekend that ends the summer season reflected those for the season as a whole. According to Deadline.com, the top film for the weekend — and for the season and for the year — was Disney/Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy with an estimated $22-23 million. In its fifth week, the movie has now grossed about $280.5 million. Second place went to a film that is in its fourth week, Paramount’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It brought in around $15.6 million over the four days to raise its domestic total to $166.3 million. The teen tearjerker If I Stay remained in third place, where it opened a week earlier, with $11.5 million. The third weekend of the 20th Century Fox comedy Let’s Be Cops placed fourth with $10.5 million, while the Universal drama As Above, So Below ranked fifth with $10.3 million. Another newcomer, the spy thriller The November Man was clearly no James Bond blockbuster, despite starring Pierce Brosnan, a former Bond. The movie earned just $10 million over the four days.
