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.
