Box Office Weekend: Ultron Strikes Again


Another weekend is behind us, which means it’s time to check out the latest movies and their achievements at the box office.

First off, we got “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” This Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel enjoyed another $77 million since the last time we’ve checked, amassing a total of $312 million in the two weeks of showing.

While this might be impressive, it’s still behind the $373 million the first “Avengers” movie earned.

One the other hand, there’s “Hot Pursuit” with its menial $13.3 million. For a comedy movie that stars Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon, we believe it could’ve done a bit better.

“Furious 7” is still keeping the atmosphere hot by earning a total of $338 million so far. “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2,” which we’ve all expected to fail miserably, actually managed to add almost $7 million to its previous earnings, totaling at $58 million.

The most pleasant surprise of them all comes from “Ex Machina,” which acquired another $3 million to its name. This movie is currently sitting at place number 6 with $15.7 million, but we’re expecting even greater things from this sci-fi thriller.
