“Avengers: Age of Ultron” scored the second biggest domestic opening in history this weekend, kicking off summer blockbuster season with a mammoth $187.7 million debut.
Nothing, it seems, and certainly not Blake Lively, can get “Furious 7″ to slam on the brakes.
“Furious 7″ ran laps around the competition, picking up $29.1 million in its third weekend of release, according to studio estimates.
“Furious 7″ raced to the top of the domestic box office, picking up a massive $143.6 million in its opening weekend.
Furious 7 officially hit 12 international markets on Wednesday to pace an average of 60% bigger numbers than Fast & Furious 6 in those same plays.
As it enters its 3rd overseas frame, Lionsgate’s Insurgent has risen to $100.1M at the international box office.
Jeffrey Katzenberg must be breathing a huge sigh of relief after the embattled DreamWorks Animation chief scored a much needed box office win with the release of “Home.”
“Insurgent” topped the weekend box office with $54 million, but its opening will likely fall short of the numbers put up a year ago by the first film in the “Divergent” series.
