Thanks to Donatello, Raphael, Leonardo and Michelangelo – the wise-cracking mutant reptiles from ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ – the summer movie box office saw another weekend boost on the numbers.

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ is one of the biggest August openings so far, pulling in $65 million and leading at the weekend box office. It’s a good thing the return of the turtles was well-received because there’s already news out that ‘Ninja Turtles 2’ is set to come out in 2016.

After ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ brought in $94 million for its weekend debut last week, this week, the film took second place at the weekend box office with $41.5 million. The film remains on track to pull in over $260 million this summer.

In other news on new releases, ‘Into the Storm,’ a twister tale took third place at the weekend box office with $18 million. ‘The Hundred-Foot Journey,’ about dueling restaurants in France, took fourth place at the weekend box office with $11.1 million. And ‘Step Up All In,’ about dancers battling for victory – this time in Las Vegas – took sixth place at the weekend box office with $6.6 million.

Head to the movie theaters now to catch these summer hits and the release of other great summer flicks later in the week!
