Spy Edges Out San Andreas To Win Weekend Box Office
Spy edged out San Andreas to claim the number one spot at the box office this weekend. The critically acclaimed Melissa McCarthy action-comedy made $30 million in ticket sales, beating out the Dwayne Johnson disaster movie, which came in second place and earned $26.4 million. San Andreas, which took the box office crown last weekend, is now just shy of hitting the $100 million mark in total cumulative ticket sales since its release.
Nabbing third place was the horror film Insidious: Chapter 3, which opened strong with $23 million. Entourage, the film adaptation of the popular HBO TV show had a disappointing opening, coming in fourth place with just $10.4 million. The highly anticipated movie has been hampered by poor reviews.
The action-adventure film Max Max: Fury Road also stayed strong, taking home $8 million for fifth place. That was just enough to beat the Anna Kendrick musical comedy Pitch Perfect 2, which secured sixth place with $7.7 million.
George Clooney’s mystery-adventure movie Tomorrowland slipped down to seventh place with $7 million, while Avengers: Age of Ultron came in eighth place, grossing approximately $6.2 million.
Rounding out the top 10 were the Bradley Cooper romantic-comedy Aloha with $3.3 million in ninth place and the horror remake Poltergeist with $2.8 million. What did you see this weekend?
