Universal's Furious 7 took in $1.74 million on Thursday to remain in first place at the daily box office for a 21st consecutive day. The seventh installment of the blockbuster franchise featuring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and the late Paul Walker increased 2 percent over Wednesday and was down a solid 40 percent from last Thursday. Furious 7 led the week with a weekly take of $36.92 million. That represented a 50 percent decline from the previous frame and places the film's three-week total at a massive $302.28 million.

Sony's Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 held steady in second place with $0.991 million. The modestly budgeted Kevin James led comedy was up 4 percent over Wednesday. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 placed in second for the week with a seven-day start of $28.45 million. That was in line with pre-release expectations and places the film 5 percent behind the $30.05 million seven-day start of 2011's Zookeeper.

Unfriended was up one spot over Wednesday to move into third on Thursday with $0.645 million. The ultra low-budget horror film from Universal and Blumhouse Productions was essentially unchanged from Wednesday's performance. Unfriended finished in third for the week with a seven-day start of $18.91 million. That was on the low end of expectations and was 21 percent below the $24.06 million seven-day take of last year's Ouija.

Fox's Home was up one spot and 7 percent over Wednesday to claim fourth with $0.590 million. The successful 3D computer animated film from DreamWorks Animation took fourth place for the week with $13.18 million. That represented a 39 percent decline from the previous frame and brings the film's four-week total to a stronger than expected $145.48 million.

Fellow Fox release The Longest Ride was up one spot from Wednesday to round out Thursday's top five with $0.545 million. The Nicholas Sparks adaptation starring Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood placed in fifth for the week with $9.37 million. The Longest Ride was down 44 percent from its opening week performance and has grossed $26.03 million in two weeks.

Monkey Kingdom was down four spots and a very sharp 35 percent from Wednesday's Earth Day inflated performance to land in seventh with $0.483 million. The nature documentary from Disney's Disneynature label took eighth place for the week with $6.71 million. That was on the low end of the film's modest expectations and was 11 percent softer than the $7.55 million seven-day start of last year's Bears.
