'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' set to win weekend

With the record-breaking domestic opening weekend for “Guardian of the Galaxy” last weekend, many thought it was a foregone conclusion that the film was destined to repeat—well, many were wrong.

Estimates for the Michael Bay produced “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtlesreboot have the action film taking in an impressive $64. 5-$65+ million for the weekend.

The reboot has been shredded to pieces by critics receiving an abysmal 20% on Rotten Tomatoes—however, it’s a hit with moviegoers, more specifically kids, the film has a B on Cinemascore.

If the film does take $65 million for the weekend it’ll be another win for the summer box office, which has been in a historically bad slump until “Guardians of the Galaxy” came out.

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” comes with a $125 million production price tag—so the film has to display some legs and do well overseas to warrant a sequel.

Also, Paramount Pictures, the film’s distributor—is tepid about estimates. It is placing the film at about $62 million for the weekend, less than other studio estimates.

Last weekend’s box office champ “Guardians” is set to take the second spot this weekend with $42 million. Warner Bros.’ “Into the Storm” is doing good business; it is looking at $17 million.
