It has been yet another pretty big weekend at the box office, as we had two movies debuting last week and fighting for viewers' attention. Those two movies were Meg 2: The Trench and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, and now that the weekend is over, we have an idea of how well each film performed.

While Meg 2 was pretty much universally panned by critics, the film has debuted to fairly good reception from fans, raking in just shy of $150 million at the box office since its premiere on August 4.

As for Ninja Turtles, a movie that was generally received quite well by critics, that film has performed significantly worse and only netted just over $50 million at the box office, just over a third of what Meg 2 achieved.

It should be said that neither were the winners of the weekend, as Barbie came out on top once again, and is now a billion dollar earner, as we reported on recently.
