#BOXOFFICE: “FURIOUS 7” CONTINUES TO DOMINATE BOX OFFICE
For a second straight week, FURIOUS 7 towers over the competition (which have some peculiarly suggestive names) with $62.7 million for Universal Pictures, good enough to surpass already the $250 million mark domestically in just TWO WEEKS! The record for best second Box Office weekend for a Film previously was held by The Hunger Games with $58.5 million and a new mark has been set.
HOME lands in second this weekend, going strong still in its third week out with $19.7 million for 20th Century Fox. Thus far, it has grossed $130 million in its run.
THE LONGEST RIDE starring Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson, opens a respectable third with $13 million for 20th Century Fox. And while Critics failed to be charmed with a 29% on the Tomatometer, Audiences gave it a resounding ‘yes’ with a coveted A CinemaScore which could only help it in coming weeks as word of mouth spreads.
GET HARD finds itself in fourth spot in its third week out with $8.2 million for Warner Bros. In three weeks, it has made $70 million already.
WOMAN IN GOLD is in seventh with $5.7 million, expanding to 1,504 theatres in it second week for eOne Films/The Weinstein Co.
KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE rounds-out the Top Ten with $1.2 million for 20th Century Fox in its ninth week out. To date, it has grossed $125 million.
