Sequels Rule With Latest Box Office

Sequels Rule With Latest Box Office The summer movie season is fully in swing and this weekend provided both expected results and some surprises, which are always welcome. on the expected results side, Mad Max: Fury Road hit its tracking and came in at $44 million, while adding another $65 million overseas for its opening frame in various territories. Though the film has been getting very positive reviews in a way that’s surprising many, it is an R-rated film and that does limit it in general, on top of the last installment coming out around thirty years ago. On the surprise side, Pitch Perfect 2 blew the doors off this weekend with a $70 million take that drew strong audiences after the positive engagement of the first film a few years back. That film connected with a lot of kids at the time that are a few years older now and dragging more people to see it, making for a very big weekend for the film

The other big film of the weekend is Avengers: Age of Ultron in its third frame where it added another $39 million, bringing its domestic total up to $372 million. It’s open in 92 territories now and did another $185 million overseas, bringing its total so far to $1.14 billion since opening earlier this month.
