While the full numbers from this weekend's mainland box office are still being tallied, a leader has emerged.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles took the top of the weekend box office in China, kicking the butts out of the competition.

A live-action reboot of the hit American cartoon from the late 80s, Turtles showed at over 4,700 theaters across the mainland and netted 26.5 million U.S. dollars through its opening weekend, bumping its total offshore weekend to roughly 34 million dollars.

"Turtles" went up against fellow Hollywood import "The Maze Runner" and Hong Kong actioner "Kung Fu Jungle," both of which also opened this weekend.

According to Deadline.com, to date, "Turtles" has made over 430 million dollars worldwide.
