The lackluster 2014 summer season comes to an end this Labor Day weekend with the release of the spy thriller November Man and the found-footage horror pic As Above/So Below. This holiday is always a slow one at theaters, and in all likelihood, Guardians of the Galaxy will once again claim the top spot to bid farewell to a season that is looking like it will net out at an eight-year low.

Here’s how things might play out.

Box office report: 'Guardians of the Galaxy' tops weekend, becomes No. 1 film of the summer

Disney’s Guardians of the Galaxy was the top-grossing film of the weekend, beating out a trio of new releases—and in the process, becoming the No. 3 movie of the year and the highest earner of the summer with nearly $252 million.

The Marvel Studios-produced film—starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Dave Bautista and Lee Pace—has now grossed $251.9 million since its stateside release four weeks ago, outpacing films like Transformers: Age of Extinction ($251 million), Maleficent ($237 million), X-Men: Days of Future Past ($232 million total domestic gross), Godzilla ($201 million) and Neighbors ($150 million).

Guardians has earned nearly $500 million globally, and with upcoming releases in key territories including Japan and China, the film is poised to become Disney’s top film of the year.  READ FULL STORY

Box office report: 'Turtles' reclaim top spot, 'Expendables' misfire

Holdover tent-poles Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Guardians of the Galaxy maintained the top spots at the weekend box office, while the new openers trailed behind. But, while it was expected that Let’s Be Cops and The Giver would open in the teens, the biggest surprise of the weekend was The Expendables 3, a franchise pic which should have easily opened in the $20 to $25 million range, but instead floundered with an estimated $16.2 million.

Box office update: 'Turtles', 'Guardians,' ambush 'Expendables'

The Expendables might have an army of action stars, but the third installment in the testosterone-fueled franchise is looking a little weak, opening behind both Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Guardians of the Galaxy on Friday.

Expendables 3 (Cinema Score: A-) took in an estimated $5.88 million Friday from 3,221 North American locations. A franchise low (Expendables 2 took in $10.5 million on its first Friday, and Expendables earned $13.3 million in 2010), it looks like Sylvester Stallone and his buddies might even miss the modest $20 million goal for the weekend. These early numbers could indicate that the online leak might have impacted the theatrical earnings more than initially expected.

Box office update: 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' rocket to No. 1

It looks like a pizza party may be in order.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles brought in an estimated $25.6 million on its first day in theaters, including $4.6 million from screenings on Thursday night. Though it was widely expected to be in a tight race for No. 1 with Guardians of the Galaxy, TMNT more than doubled the estimated Friday earnings of Marvel’s reigning champ ($12.34 million).

The big opening day puts the $125 million Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies reboot on track to take in around $62 million this weekend, beating analyst and studio estimates of a $40 million start. Audiences were mostly male (61 percent) and age 25 or older (55 percent); they were more receptive to the movie than critics, awarding it a Cinema Score of B, though kids exiting the theaters gave it an A.

Following last weekend’s record-breaking debut of Guardians of the Galaxy, Disney hit the $1 billion mark for domestic box-office returns this week.

The boost lifts the studio to second in domestic market share, beating out Warner Bros. but still trailing 20th Century Fox, which has had a banner year with X-Men: Days of Future PastThe Fault in Our Stars, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Box office preview: 'Ninja Turtles' fights 'Guardians' for No. 1 spot

Nostalgia can be a powerful force in driving audiences to theaters, but this weekend the ’90s heroes in a half shell have to contend with a foe more deviant than Shredder: great buzz. Last weekend’s record-shattering debut of the once obscure Marvel property Guardians of the Galaxy will have a major impact on how Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fares out of the gates, and it might not be the most positive one.

This weekend also sees the debut of The One-Hundred Foot Journey, Into the Storm, and Step Up All In, all of which open in 2,000+ theaters, and limited releases such as What If, The Dog, and James Cameron’s Deepsea Challenge 3D.

Here’s how things might play out across this packed weekend at the theaters.

Under the headline “The Last, Disposable Action Hero,” New York Times writer Alex French posited earlier this year that “There are now more indistinguishable, barrel-chested eight-packed aspiring stars than ever.” To address this problem, Entertainment Weekly gathered some of Hollywood’s best character actors while we were in San Diego for Comic-Con for this important message.

Chris Pratt shows off Star-Lord's spaceship, 'MTV Cribs'-style

One of the great things about Guardians of the Galaxy is its grimy, lived-in set design—it’s an aesthetic that’s cribbed directly from Star Wars, in a good way.

In this Guardians featurette, America’s new best bro Chris Pratt shows off the practical sets for Peter Quill’s spaceship, the Milano, MTV Cribs-style. It’s kind of a mess, but that’s how Star-Lord rolls. At least until Xzibit comes to pimp his ride.
