FURIOUS 7 1at 3rd

FURIOUS 7 continues to rampage the box office, pushing to $1.15 BILLION with a B worldwide .. it's making serious cash in CHINA, and despite a 51% dropoff since last week in America, it was still the number one film of the weekend..

Newcomers PAUL BLART and horror flick UNFRIENDED were no match for the spirit of Paul Walker. Or the CGI Paul Walker, in this case..

MALL COP 2 did better than some expected, coming in second place with $24 mil--not as good as his $30+  mil opener of the first film.. This movie was hit with horrid reviews. But often those pratfalls make people --not reviewers--last a little. But a full movie of pratfalls only? That doesn't sound great..

UNFRIENDED had a great word of mouth and got good traction from a youthful brigade of horror fans.. it earned $16 mil strong--strong because it was one of the best opening weekends for a horror film since THE CONJURING. Yes it's been that long..

While IT FOLLOWS was hoping for a wider release and good word of mouth, some not so great numbers have been resulting.. The film earned over $800,000 this weekend, but it also dropped 58% since last week. It also dropped 692 theaters .. But earning $13 mil + even though it only cost less than $2 mil to make? Well that's a success. Plus it's doing great and selling out in Australia..
