A trio of newcomers entered the box office arena this weekend, but two battle-hardened and grizzled champions kept them at bay, holding onto the top two spots and making it look easy. Sorry, newbies: This top 10 still belongs to 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy.'

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Conquers Movie Universe

Up until the day it opened, 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was a big question mark at the box office.

Could Marvel Studios continue its winning streak with a movie based on a practically unknown comic series that only has light connections to the rest of the films in their cinematic universe?

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Lucy’ Takes Down Mighty ‘Hercules’

This weekend saw two movies named after their lead characters go head-to-head. In one corner, you have 'Lucy.' In the other, 'Hercules.'

Weekend Box Office Report: ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Tops ‘Tammy’

Major holiday weekends are often huge for the box office, with millions of Americans taking advantage of their extra time off to head out to the movies. But this fourth of July weekend?

Not so much.

Despite three new releases, it was a surprisingly quiet time at the movies these past few days and it's hard to imagine anyone being particularly overjoyed with these numbers.
