This weekend, “Furious 7” conquered the box office for the fourth time in a row, coming in first with $18.2 million. The action blockbuster led a relatively slow weekend, what you may call the calm before the storm—that storm being “The Avengers: Age of Ultron”, which will officially kick off the summer movie season when it opens in the U.S. next weekend. The sequel to the Marvel superhero hit debuted to over $200 million overseas this weekend, so don’t expect “Furious 7” to lead the box office again.
“Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” remained in second with $15.5 million, with “The Age of Adaline” performing the best out of this weekend’s new releases, following in third with $13.3 million. The drama stars Blake Lively as a woman who never ages and lives a solitary life until she finds love. The sci-fi film “Ex Machina” also did well, however, considering that it played in less theaters. The movie which follows a tech genius’s interactions with the world’s first artificial intelligence expanded to nationwide release after two weeks in limited release, and came in sixth with $5.4 million. The weekend’s final new wide release bombed. The dramedy “Little Boy”, which centers around a child who uses his faith to try to bring his father home safe from fighting in World War II, didn’t even crack the top twelve. It came in thirteenth with $2.8 million.
Finally, “The Water Diviner” had a lot of success in limited release this weekend. The war drama that stars Russell Crowe as a man looking for his three sons made $1.2 million in only 320 theaters nationwide.
