“The Longest Ride” can’t take down “Furious 7” from top of the box office

There was only one new movie that came out this week but it wasn’t able to take the top from Furious 7.

Furious 7 once again finds itself at the top of the box office for the second straight week, bringing in an estimated $60.5 million. The movie now surpasses the $200 million mark and is dangerously close to the $1 billion mark. The movie should hit it by the end of next week.

Home is staying strong in the number two spot with an estimated $19 million over the weekend. With the movie being the only family friendly film, it’s going to remain to do well. The movie should surpass their budget next week, but it’s no where near where they were expected to be at.


The only new movie is the latest adaptation from Nicholas Sparks, The Longest Ride. The movie brings in an estimated $13.5 million. This is the 6th highest opening for a Sparks’s adaptation. While on the surface it doesn’t mean much considering that the highest grossing film, The Notebook, only premiered at $13.4 million.

Rounding out the top five is Get Hard with an estimated $8.6 million and Cinderella with an estimated $7.2 million.

For the rest of the box office, you can go here.

There are only two major movies coming out this week and they both may find their way to the top five. The thriller based on the novel by Tom Rob Smith, Child 44, is set to release on Friday along with the sequel to yet another movie that didn’t need it, Paul Blart 2. Both movies may find their way into top five, but neither will take the top spot from Furious 7.
