US Box Office

Again swords and shields reign the box office, ‘cept it’s a different kind at the top spot. TMNT, the CGI follow-up to the eighties, then live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. People were eager enough to shell out a total of $25.5 million to this movie with a host of high profile voices (Sarah Michelle Gellar, the late Mako, Kevin Smith, Patrick Stewart, Laurence Fishburne, Ziyi Zhang).
This means 300 will have to take the runner-up spot, still with an admirable $20.5 million.
At 3, Shooter opens with $14.5 million. Not a spectacular premiere by any standard, but it’s probably to get its mid-budget returned ($60 million) when it ends its run.
Leftovers round out the top 5, with Wild Hogs adding $14.4 million and Premonition adding $10.1 million.
