Box Office Report: Furious 7 continues to dominate

Fast-and-Furious-7-970x545

Despite some solid competition, Fast and the Furious 7 continues to mow down everything in its path, earning $4.3 million this week. The 7th installment in the ever popular action franchise is breaking records everywhere and doesn’t look to be slowing down.
The live-action adaptation of Disney classic Cinderella is doing very well for itself, making just over $2 million this week while Dreamworks’ reliable new entry Home earned just under that.
New entry Paul Blart 2 (despite horrific reviews) sits at number 4 having taken $1.5 million in its first week.

Now Fast 7 had it’s time at the top and its time to accept a humble position at number 2. Avengers 2: Age of Ultron opens this week and I doubt anything is going to be able to prevent it from annihilating the box office.
Other releases include documentary on infamous street artist Banksy – Banksy Does New York; World War I drama Testament of Youth; and the story of an orphan who joins a choir Boychoir, starring Dustin Hoffman.
