‘Furious 7’ Cruises to Fourth Straight Victory at Box Office

Universal’s “Furious 7” is racing toward its fourth straight victory at the U.S. box office with an estimated $16.5 million weekend.

The Vin Diesel-Paul Walker blockbuster, directed by James Wan, recently became the fastest movie to hit $1 billion in ticket sales. On Thursday, it passed the $300 million mark domestically.

In second place, Sony’s “Paul Blart 2” should earn over $13.5 million after grossing $3.8 million on Friday.

Lionsgate’s “The Age of Adaline,” starring Blake Lively, took home $5 million Friday for nearly $12 million on its opening weekend. The romance fantasy is playing in 2,991 locations.

Logging in for the second time, Universal’s cyber-thriller “Unfriended” is looking at an estimated $5.8 million from 2,775 theaters. The Jason Blumhouse-produced feature has grossed nearly $25 million on a $1 million budget.

A24’s “Ex Machina” is performing solidly in its U.S. expansion. The Oscar Isaac sci-fier earned over $1.5 million on Friday for roughly $4.5 million this weekend.

This weekend’s other notables include Russell Crowe’s directorial debut “The Water Diviner,” which looks to earn north of $1 million from 320 theaters for Warner Bros.

Meanwhile, faith-based pic “Little Boy” is on track for a soft $2.5 million from 1,045 locations.

In limited release, Kurt Cobain documentary “Monatage of Heck” earned $35k on Friday for an $81k weekend.
