    Raccoons Vs. Turtles This Weekend As "Guardians of the Galaxy" Tries To Hold Off A Bunch Of Teen Ninjas

    Raccoons battling turtles sounds like "When Nature Attacks" on the Discovery Channel but no, it's what should be a very interesting weekend at the box office. I'd bet the ranch on raccoons in a real life fight and I'm guessing the same will happen on the big screen as well.
