The race to Summer is still on as "Furious 7" continues to dominate the box office for a 3rd week in a row earning an extra 29.1 million and just shy of 300 mil cume. No doubt it will have it this Tuesday the latest but after that it will quickly slow down. However it has already claimed the title of biggest movie so far for 2015 till May 1st. New at #2 is "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" with a 24 mil opening and right about expectations. Also new at #3 is "Unfriended" with 16 mil and below industry expectations but pretty much what we expected it to be at. Holding ground at #4 is "Home" earning another 10.3 mil. Rounding off the top 5 is "The Longest Ride" with 6.9 mil and this ride is pretty much over.
New movies that did not make the top 5:
Just one this week but honestly it is right about where it should be. Disneynature series "Monkey Kingdom" earns 4.7 mil and a little below expectations but still that is almost all profit at this point.
New movies next week:
Only one big wide release this week as "The Age of Adaline" opens to almost 3000 screens and might hit around 15 mil. This week is a sort of throw-away with the first big Summer film coming up the week after as Marvel prepares for the Avenger's sequel.
