'Ninja Turtles' Sequel Underwhelms, Women Drive 'Me Before you"
Turtle power isn't all that strong the second time around.
"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" opened to $35.3 million, according to comScore estimates Sunday - close to half of what the first film opened to in 2014. It's the latest in a string of underwhelming openings for sequels this summer, including "X-Men: Apocalypse," which fell a hefty 66 percent in its second weekend in theaters, earning $22.3 million for a second-place finish.
On the brighter side, the romantic tearjerker "Me Before You" proved again the might of the female audience. The film opened higher than expected with $18.3 million, putting it squarely in third place.
