Recapping Last Weekend
Furious 7 again topped the weekend box office, coming in north of $29 million for the third straight weekend. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 debuted with $23.76 million. Unfriended debuted with $18.4 million to round out the top three. Home pulled in $10.6 million in its fourth weekend of release The Longest Ride brought in $7 million in its second weekend of release.
Furious 7 will likely pass the $300 million domestic mark today and will likely close in on the $1.2 billion mark worldwide by the end of the weekend.
Unfriended beat expectations with its $16 million and left those financially behind the film quite happy, considering its budget of just $1 million.
The Age of Adaline
Blake Lively stars as Adaline Bowman in the romantic fantasy film. Adaline is cursed with the whole not-aging-after-a-certain-point thing. Lively’s character attempts to keep her distance from any potential relationship but because this is a movie, “love finds her”. Variety points out how enjoyable The Age of Adaline is despite having a somewhat ridiculous premise.
Little Boy is set in the World War II era and has drawn some rather unfavorable reviews because of it. Jakob Salvati plays the character whose nickname is also the film’s title. Salvati has made guest appearances in several different television shows, but this is his first major movie role. Kevin James, Michael Rapaport, David Henrie and Emily Watson also star.
The Water Diviner
Russell Crowe directs and stars in The Water Diviner, a “chintzy historical epic” according to A.V. Club. The film has faced protests from groups saying it’s portrayal of the treatment of Greeks and Armenians in the early 1900s is historically inaccurate. Crowe recently spoke to E! Online about the emotional connection he has to The Water Diviner.
Adult Beginners seems a bit like Happy Christmas, just with Nick Kroll playing Anna Kendrick’s role. Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale and Joel McHale are also on the bill. A.V. Club points out what a different role this is for Kroll. Kroll and Joel McHale sat down with ComingSoon.net and talked about Adult Beginners. Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale have been dating in real life since 2012. They previously worked on set together in the Annie remake, where Byrne was excellent. They are also together in Spy along with Melissa McCarthy, which will hit theaters on June 5th.
Adult Beginners will be available to watch tomorrow on VUDU as well as in theaters.
Catch It Before It’s Gone
American Sniper finally makes its way to Keller 8 Cinema this weekend. The Clint Eastwood-directed film opened on Christmas Day at the end of last year and currently sits at just under $348 million domestically at the box office.
