The weekend box office numbers are in and "Furious 7" is number 1 again for the third weekend in a row.
1)FURIOUS 7 - $29.2 Million
"Furious 7" was the years first real blockbuster, it was off to a huge opening and is still reigning supreme at the top of the Box Office. This weekends impressive $29.2 Million has now pushed the action film over $1 Billion worldwide, making it the seventh highest grossing film of all time and deservedly so, the film faced an unimaginably difficult challenge when lead actor Paul Walker passed away halfway through production, its a miracle that the seventh film in this franchise worked out as well as it did.
2)PAUL BLART: MALL COP 2 - $23.8 Million
Unfortunately this gigantic mess made the TOP 5, the sequel to the soulless and unbearable "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" is even worse than its predecessor and somehow it managed to make number 2 this weekend. "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" is Kevin James' second biggest solo debut, just behind the first Paul Blart film which grossed $31.8 Million on its opening weekend in January 2009. The film currently has a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes and I'd be shocked if it moves from that spot.
3)UNFRIENDED - $15.8 Million
Despite its unintentionally funny trailer and quite odd premise, "Unfriended" opened to some positive reviews, it currently has a 64% on Rotten Tomatoes. "Unfriended" is the largest opening for an original horror film since "The Conjuring" back in 2013. The film isn't expected to make past $40 Million domestically but that doesn't really matter to the studio. "Unfriended" is the latest in a long line of microbudget horror flicks that are made for a quick buck and anything made at the Box Office is seen as success. "Unfriended" is releasing in the UK next week so keep a look out for my review around May 1st.
4)HOME - $10.3 Million
Dreamworks Animation's "HOME" added $10.3 Million to its Box Office returns this weekend to a total of $270 Million worldwide on a $135 Million budget. The film gathered mixed reviews, gaining a 47% on Rotten Tomatoes. I haven't put a review out for the film as I saw it some time after its release, but I'd give it a 5.8/10, its entertaining, funny in parts, but has a really generic and uninteresting story, but its one that keeps children entertained throughout.
5)THE LONGEST RIDE - $7 Million
The latest in Nicolas Sparks' adaptations is "The Longest Ride", the film gained an expected 29% on Rotten Tomatoes and $29 Million Worldwide.
So there you have it guys, there are the weekends TOP 5 at the Domestic Box Office, what stuck out to you? Comment below!
