Guardians of the Galaxy pushed across the $230 million threshold yesterday with a 46 percent Wednesday-to-Wednesday decline for $2.6 million. The eventual summer box office champion has earned $231.7 million through 20 days of release, or 12 percent more than Captain America: The Winter Soldier and 8 percent more than Transformers: Age of Extinction.

Paramount reports that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles added $2.41 million on Wednesday, down 53 percent from the same day last week. That gives the reboot a 13-day domestic haul of $126.5 million--19 percent ahead of where G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra stood at the same point five years ago.

Fox's Let's Be Cops earned $1.77 million on Wednesday, down 66 percent from its opening day one week ago. The comedy has tallied $32.6 million to date and trails the pace of 2008's Pineapple Express by 36 percent.

The Giver took in $1.12 million on Wednesday, pushing its 6-day haul up to $16.3 million. The young adult adaptation is running 20 percent ahead of the pace of The Host.

Rounding out the top five, The Expendables 3 posted $1.085 million yesterday, giving it a 6-day domestic cume of $19.9 million. Unfortunately, the three-quel trails the pace of its predecessor by 46 percent at the same point in the release cycle.
