Box Office: “Guardians” closes in on $300 million as the summer bottoms out

It’s the dead of winter, box office wise, that gloomy stretch when there’s no sign of life, no notion of when things will turn springlike and pop back to life.

So “Guardians of the Galaxy” will manage another $10 million and win the weekend, due to clear $300 by next Friday or Saturday.

“Let’s Be Cops” climbs to #2, “If I Stay” sticks around and climbs to #3, “Turtles” drops to #4 and everything else fades to black.

“The Identical,” a seriously misguided Elvis roman a clef, barely cracked the top ten.

“The Hundred Foot Journey” is about to clear $25 million. Sloooooooowly.”

“When the Game Stands Tall” lingers in the top ten.

And that’s the sum total of it, way down from last weekend, way down from last year, no real light at the end of the tunnel.
