No big surprise as the animated Spring Break film "Home" scores big with a hefty 54 million for its debut. Solid reviews all around and did well above all expectations. Look for it to cap around 150 mil plus for domestic box office. New at #2 is "Get Hard" with 34.6 mil, which is spot on for expectations. Holding ground but dropping to #3 is "Divergent: The Insurgent" with another 22 mil as it slowly climbs to reach 100 mil cume. Drop to #4 is "Cinderella" with 17.5 mil but has reached the 150 mil cume as expected. Rounding off the top 5 is "It Follows" with a huge climb from limited release and a 3.8 mil weekend.
New movies next week:
Only one major release next week and rightly so. Opening on over 4000 screens is "Furious 7" with the late Paul Walker. A lot of buzz around this film, mostly centered around Walker and should open to potentially 100 mil for the Easter Weekend. Typically not a huge box office weekend but this could be a big exception.
