Still at the winners' circle is "Furious 7" earning another 18.3 million and well past 300 mil cume for domestic box office. This will be the last weekend in the #1 spot though with another big movie on the horizon. Holding ground at #2 is "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" with another 15.5 mil and this battery is dying down. New at #3 is "The Age of Adaline" with a debut of 13.4 mil and very close to expectations. Still in the mix at #4 is "Home" earning another 8.3 mil as it passes 150 mil cume but will not reach 200 unfortunately. Rounding off the top 5 is "Unfriended" with 6.2 mil extra and pretty much un-popular.
New movies next week:
Only one wide release this coming weekend and let's be honest, no one is dumb enough to go up against it. On at least 4200 screens (probably more like 7000), is "Avengers: Age of Ultron" to kick-off the Summer! Pre-screenings word-of-mouth have audiences wanting to see it again and again. Also from what I am hearing, they want to see it in non-3D because they felt the experience could have been much better. Will open for early Thursday shows (around 8 PM) and likely to break 175 mil opening weekend, possibly strike 200 mil.
