Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will no doubt be the top film this weekend of the new releases. It may challenge the second week of Guardians of the Galaxy for the number one slot overall, but Guardians word of mouth is strong and the mighty turtles would have to at least get to the mid 40’s. As of now it looks like it could land in the 40’s so the numbers are worth watching.
Step Up: All In continues to expand the mythology of the seemingly never ending Step Up universe. However it is not showing as much overall color as its predecessor Step Up Revolution. It opened to 11.7 Million and finished at about 35.
The Hundred-Foot Journey will probably depend on reviews to propel it to a long life. Few are in thus far and the results are mixed at the moment. It is looking like high single, low teen opening right now, but could get better if critics warm to it.
Into the Storm has interest growing. Last year’s White House Down was looking comparable both overall and in the demos. White House opened against The Heat last year and Into the Storm has competition as well. Something high teens or low 20’s maybe in order.
