Cartoons at the box office: “Spy” at #1, “San Andreas” drops (not like a rock) to #2

The top film this weekend at the box office was R-rated comedy “Spy,” earning $30 million in its opening weekend.

In second place is “San Andreas,” which earned $26.4 million (-51.6% from last weekend). The Rock’s film has earned to date a rock-solid $92.2 million domestic, $60 million overseas, and $152.2 million globally.

Dropping to fifth place (behind newcomers “Insidious Chapter 3” and “Entourage,” in third and fourth places respectively) is “Mad Max: Fury Road,” which made another $8 million (-43.8%). It’s earned to date $130.8 million domestic, $177 million overseas, and $307.8 million globally.

“Pitch Perfect 2” is in sixth place, having earned another $7.7 million (-48.1%). Its totals now stand at $161 million domestic, $89 million overseas, and $250 million globally.

“Tomorrowland” pulled in another $7 million (-50.9%) for seventh place, earning to date $76.2 million domestic, $93.5 million overseas, and $169.7 million globally.

In eighth place is “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” which earned another $6.2 million (-45.6%). Its totals stand at $438 million domestic and $1.348 billion globally. It’s now the fifth highest grossing film of all time (non-inflation adjusted).

In ninth place is “Aloha.” The pretty-much-a-flop (its budget per Wikipedia is $37 million) has earned another $3.3 million (-65.9%); “Aloha”‘s total box office to date is $16.3 million.

Outside the top 10, “Furious 7” is closing in on the third highest-grossing film spot closely (the original “Avengers”).

Next weekend sees just one big film opening, “Jurassic World,” the still-featherless-dinosaur-laden newest reboot/sequel to all those “Jurassic Park” films from the 90s.
