Low Budget Means Big Bucks At Box Office
A small scare film continued to show that at the box office, nothing sells better than scripts about bleak prospects.
The movie about an America that goes lawless once a year, “The Purge,” almost doubled Universal Pictures opening estimates for it taking in $36.4 million and gaining an amazing per screen average of $14,353.
“Fast & Furious 6″ continued on pace to be one of the biggest motion pictures of the year by coming in second this weekend with $19.8million, which gives it a grand total of $203 million in domestic release in just three weeks.
“Now You See Me,” the crime caper movie about thieves who are magic, came in third this weekend scoring $19.5 million.
The new comedy starring Own Wilson and Vince Vaughn. “The Internship,” failed badly its opening weekend taking in just $18.1 million. Not a good omen for the future pairing of these two actors in anymore comedies. In fifth spot on the box office list was the animated movie “Epic” with $12.1 million.
