Despite starring some of the biggest names in Hollywood, The Expendables 3 could not budge last week’s top two movies – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Guardians of the Galaxy – from their #1 and #2 positions (respectively). Expendables didn’t even take the #3 spot. That went to the new R-rated comedy, Let’s Be Cops, which opened to $17.7 million.
Both Turtles and Guardians have announced that sequels are coming. Look for Turtles 2 in 2016 and Guardians 2 in 2017.
Here is The Top 10 for the weekend of August 15 – 17, 2014:
1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ($28.4M)
