BOX OFFICE: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Reclaims First & SIN CITY 2 Bombs

What's the lesson from Sin City: A Dame To Kill For? It's probably not a good idea to wait nine years to make a sequel, as interest in it is likely to wane. On a positive note, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is back on top at the North American box office.


The Friday numbers are rolling in from the North American box office and it looks like Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy will reclaim first. It had spent the past few weeks behind Paramount's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The James Gunn-directed comic book movie will finish up the weekend with $17.2M to $17.6M. The previous box office champ, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, is in a dogfight for second place aganst the newcomer, If I Stay.  Both films are expected to finish up somewhere around $15.2M to $16.5M.

Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is having an awful weekend. And that might be putting it nice. The sequel to the 2005 film was initially expected to make at least $15 million in its opening weekend, but after a rough Thursday expectation were taken down to $10 million. Apparently that figure wasn't low enough. It'll finish in sixth place with a meager $6M to $7M. The original had a $29 million weekend and finished up with $74 million. It cost $40 million to make the first film and it cost $60M to $70M to make the sequel. By the way, I know how much Sin City 3 will cost. Answer: nothing! Because there won't be one.
