PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The box office leader remained the same at multiplexes over the weekend.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles made it two weekends in a row as the box office champ as the action-adventure comedy earned an estimated $28-million.

Not far behind was the comic book-inspired fantasy, Guardians Of The Galaxy, with $25-million.

The weekend’s three new attractions rounded out the top five.

The comedy, Let’s Be Cops, which opened on Wednesday, was third with $18-million.

The action-thriller sequel, The Expendables 3, starring Sylvester Stallone, debuted with $16-million.

And the futuristic drama, The Giver, took fifth with $13-million.

Overall, industry-wide totals were ever-so-slightly ahead of last year’s pace.
