Coming in 2nd place was Dwayne Johnson and San Andreas with $26.4M and a not-unreasonable -52% drop from its hefty $54.5M last weekend. Its domestic cume is perched to break $100M sometime today.
Entourage, which was so buried under negative reviews labeling the film "misogynist" you had to wonder if critics had *seen* the original HBO show, sputtered to a weak $10.5M on 3,100 screens and a disappointing fourth place. Added to its Wednesday and Thursday cash the film has grossed $17.8M domestically for the 5-day period. Perhaps word-of-mouth—it has an A- on CinemaScore—will keep it afloat over the week.
Insidious 3 will likely have another in its series as the film opened well internationally. It made $14.3M in 42 territories including Russia, Malaysia and the Phillipines. It has yet to open in large territories such as Mexico (6/19), Germany (7/2), France (7/8), and South Korea (7/9).
Poor Aloha took it on the chin again, dropping -65% for a $3.3M weekend and 9th place.
Love and Mercy, the Brian Wilson biopic, did well on 483 screens, earning an estimated $2.2M, for a respectable per screen average of $4.6K (much better than Entourage's $3.3K per screen).
Avengers: Age of Ultron with $1.348B passed Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 to become the 5th highest grossing film of all-time, globally. Next up is Furious 7 and its $1.51B worldwide gross. Ultron has yet to open in Japan, which it does on July 4. So far Ultron top territories have been China ($233.6M), Korea ($82.2M), the UK ($72.8M) and Mexico ($50.4M).
That might help Disney feel a little better about the lackluster performance of Tomorrowland which took another -50% drop for a $7.022M weekend and 7th place. That puts the Brad Bird film at $76.2M domestically, with a worldwide cume of $169.7M.
Internationally, the aca-pocalypse battle continued as Mad Max: Fury Road crossed $300M in worldwide box office on Saturday while Pitch Perfect 2 crossed $250M today.
