Furious 7 Dominates Box Office for Second Consecutive Weekend

Posted on April 12, 2015

Furious 7 has dominated the box office for the second consecutive weekend. The action thriller made $60.5 million during its second weekend in theaters. This follows its massive opening weekend take of $143 million. The film has now made $252 million after just two weekends in theaters. That easily makes it the top film of 2015 so far.

Furious 7 is also huge overseas. It set an opening day record in China by making $68.6 million. Deadline reports that Furious 7 should hit $1 billion worldwide by the end of the coming week. It has already made over $800 million worldwide.

Home finished second and made $19 million during its third weekend in theaters. The animated film is also performing well. The film fell just 30% from the previous week and has made nearly $130 million after three weekends. Home was followed by The Longest Ride starring Scott Eastwood, Britt Robertson and Melissa Benoist. It made $13.5 million during its opening weekend with a decent $4,011 per theater average. The Longest Ride has an A CinemaScore.

The Longest Ride was followed by Get Hard, which made $8.6 million during its third weekend in theaters. Get Hard was followed by Cinderella, Insurgent, Woman in Gold and It Follows.

You can view the box office chart for the weekend here. Furious 7 will have to beat Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 and Unfriended in order to stay atop the box office for three consecutive weekends. We think the long awaited Paul Blart sequel should make enough to keep Furious 7 from a three-peat.
