Friday Box-Office: Guardians Still On Top in Summer’s Deadest Week

Marvel space epic continues to dominate as Summer winds down

The week after Labor Day is traditionally among the weakest in terms of movie attendance in the United States, and 2014 appears no different.

With no major new releases in competition, Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy one again easily held onto the top spot, continuing to display the strong legs that has made the “risky” Disney/Marvel venture the top-grossing film of the year (thus far.) Of the other holdovers, teen weepie If I Stay and bro-comedy Let’s Be Cops wound up tied for second place, though family-heavy matinee sales on Saturday are expected to raise Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles back into that spot for the final weekend numbers.

There still isn’t a major Fall blockbuster on the horizon until The Maze Runner on September 19, some analysts are projecting a stronger-than-expected performance from the Idris Elba home-invasion thriller No Good Deed this Friday.
