After falling out of number one in favor of the newest attempt at a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie to hit the big screen Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy return to the top.
Since I am beyond lazy and do not feel like either repeating myself or waste my precious time on going in on the latest TMNT monstrosity—though, in all honesty, that may come at a later date–I have some links for you. If you have already read them, good for you! You like us and we like you too! If have already read them and you actually want to read them again, you, kind person, get a round of applause because you love us.

As for other movies on the weekend line-up, If I Stay , starring Chloë Grace Moretz and based on the Young Adult novel of the same name, debuted with a commendable $16.35 million despite being compare by many to another movie based on a Young Adult novel, *coughs* The Fault in Our Stars . I have yet to see If I Stay, but I feel that it had to have worked very hard to inch out of the TFIOS’s shadow just to be differentiated as a totally different thing and not just another teen movie.
…Pun possibly intended.
Meanwhile Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, a crime thriller and sequel, debuted at number eight despite predictions. And like we all thought, The Giver is struggling to survive at the box office because it pretty much sh*tted on my favorite childhood book. It clocks in right before Harry Potter; so you already know how I feel about it.
