Furious 7 pulls no punches, rules the top again

The early box office numbers are in and, no surprise, it was another huge weekend for one film in particular. Here’s what went down:

furious-7-06Furious 7 held onto the top spot at the box office for a second weekend in a row, bringing in $60 million and raising its total to a simply outstanding $252 million. There’s not juice in this franchise’s tank – there’s rocket fuel. So far, Furious 7’s worldwide gross is $497 million, which is literally out of this world. The movie should continue to post huge numbers for the next few weeks until Avengers: Age of Ultron debuts.

As for the rest of the top five, Home came in second with $19.5 million, down just 28% from its previous week. The movie has grossed an excellent $130 million in three weeks. The Longest Ride debut in third place with a decent but spectacular $14 million. Get Hard was in fourth place with $8 million, while Cinderella closed things out in fifth place with $7.4 million.

So, to recap, here were our predictions:

1) Furious 7 – $65 million
2) The Longest Ride – $18 million
3) Home – $17 million
4) Cinderella – $8 million
5) Get Hard – $7 million

And here’s the early estimates:

1) Furious 7 – $60 million
2) Home – $19.5 million
3) The Longest Ride – $14 million
4) Get Hard – $8 million
5) Cinderella – $7 million

Next weekend sees the release of Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. I had a hard time writing that just now. Either way, be sure to come back on Friday to see our predictions.
