    The Turtles took down the Guardians, showing Marvel Studios is not bullet-proof. From what I’ve learned with the exception of Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel movies took the top spot in their first two weekends. Based on that history’s Guardians should have done the same thing, especially post-Avengers and with critics going hard on TNMT. Marvel’s PR will use the overall box office haul to gloss over that, but it’s doesn’t change the fact a Marvel movie is vulnerable when challenged by another movie of a similar genre.

    @aquarius64: I hate Marvel movies they’re overrated and personaly i think that TNMT is better than all of the other marvel movies combined i don’t know what’s the hype about them !

    I took my niece to see it and enjoyed the time with her, but I dearly wish I could have the two hours, money, and IQ points this movie took from me.

    @aquarius64, the moviegoing audience has gotten used to crap. TMNT is all about nostalgia, not the actual quality of the movie. It doesn’t really matter that it’s a bad movie, people see it for the nostalgia. Even though it beat Guardians, the latter is getting better reviews from the critics and audiences are enjoying it more. It outweighs TNT by a landslide in positive vs. negative reviews from critics and audiences alike. It also has a better cast, though.
