Tomorrowland managed to push through for the top spot at the box office this weekend. Unfortunately the sci-fi movie directed by academy-award winner Brad Bird only brought in a disappointing $32.1 million as the movie was tracking north of $40 million last week. The movie opened to mix reception from critics and it was shown this past weekend as the movie wasn’t able to fight off those reviews.
Pitch Perfect 2 dropped to second with a take of $30.8 million which was a decent hold for the comedy which opened last week to incredible reception. The acapella comedy has already reached $109.5 million and should continue to work as counter-programming over the next couple weeks and could pass $200 million domestically by the end of its run.
Mad Max: Fury Road also held well in its second week as the movie brought in $24.8 million to a total of $88.2 million. The George Miller directed action film has been praised by both critics and fans and has been ranked as one of the top movies this year. With a competitive slate of movies set to release over the next weeks, Mad Max: Fury Road could lose part of its audience though it should bring in upwards $160 million domestically and should dominate oversees.
Newcomer, Poltergeist opened at the fourth spot with $22.6 million, the horror film should finish with around $50 million. Avengers: Age of Ultron continued to bring in the fans as the movie brought in $21.7 million in its fourth weekend to a total of $404.8 million. Avengers: Age of Ultron will most likely finish shy of $500 million which would make the sequel bring in $123 million less than its predecessor.
Next weekend, San Andreas & Aloha release. Check out later this week for our box office predictions.
