‘The Age of Adaline’ barely edged out ‘Furious 7’ on Friday, though the Universal blockbuster should retake first place this weekend to claim its fourth consecutive win. Overseas, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ kicked off its international run with $44.8 million.
Global blockbuster leads newcomers with $29 million in third frame. ‘Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2’ does not embarrass itself despite its terrible reviews. Horror pic ‘Unfriended’ solid in third with $16 million debut.
Big, giant blockbuster gets even bigger and gianter in second week, surpassing previous series high ‘Fast & Furious 6’ in just 10 days. Lone new release ‘The Longest Ride’ meets expectations with $13.5 million debut.
With no competition to speak of, the year’s biggest box office release got even bigger yesterday after taking in another $19.1 million. The Nicholas Sparks’ adaptation ‘The Longest Ride’ opened in third place with an estimated $5.5 million.
The latest installment in the ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise claims a massive $67.3 million on Friday. As expected, ‘Furious 7’ will easily overtake ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ to become the biggest April debut of all time.
