The mega-grossing sequel took the top spot at this weekend’s box office with $18.2 million. Domestically, Furious 7 has earned $320.5 million. It has become the first film to come in first for four consecutive weekends since The Hunger Games on March 2012. Furious 7 is one of only 29 films to pull off four consecutive weeks at the top. Although, its reign may come to an end when Avengers: Age of Ultron opens next weekend, which most analysts project will be an openong of more than $200 million.
Blake Lively’s Age of Adaline was second at the box office, earning a respectable $13.4 million from 2,991 locations. It was projected to pull in $12 million and had cost $30 million to produce.
Sony’s Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 held up better than analysts expected earning $44 million, topping its $30 million production budget.
Animated hit movie Home scored fourth place this weekend, with $8.4 million, pushing its overall income to $153.8 million.
Thriller flick Unfriended rounded the top five with a $6.2 million finish, driving its domestic total to $25.2 million.
However, all of these films are expected to be overshadowed by the release of the Avengers: Age of Ultron next weekend.
