'Mad Max: Fury Road' Moves Into First on Tuesday with $3.05M; 'Tomorrowland' Places in Second with $2.91M, 'Pitch Perfect 2' Third with $2.87MMay 27, 2015 01:01 PM

by Daniel Garris

Warner's Mad Max: Fury Road was up two spots from Monday to move into first place on Tuesday with $3.05 million. The critically acclaimed action film starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron was down 54 percent from Monday and down a solid 39.5 percent from last Tuesday. Mad Max: Fury Road has grossed $97.76 million in twelve days and is set to surpass the $100 million domestic mark either today or Thursday. The film is currently running 3.5 percent ahead of the $94.43 million twelve-day take of 2012's Prometheus.

Disney's Tomorrowland was down one spot and 70 percent from Monday to land in second with $2.91 million. Tuesday's sizable percentage decline is further evidence of the film's appeal with family audiences, as Memorial Day grosses are typically inflated for family films. The Brad Bird directed sci-fi film starring George Clooney and Britt Robertson has grossed $45.59 million in five days. While that is on the lower end of expectations, the film is still off to an underwhelming start with its large price tag in mind. Tomorrowland is running a slim 2 percent ahead of the $44.68 million five-day start of 2011's Super 8.

Pitch Perfect 2 was also down one spot from Monday to take third place with $2.87 million. Universal's successful musical comedy sequel starring Anna Kendrick fell 61 percent from Monday and 46 percent from last Tuesday. Pitch Perfect 2 continues to exceed expectations in a big way with a twelve-day take of $128.61 million. That places the film an impressive 34 percent ahead of the $95.66 million twelve-day gross of last year's Neighbors.

Avengers: Age of Ultron held steady in fourth place with $1.95 million. The blockbuster superhero sequel from Disney and Marvel was down 70 percent from Monday and down a very solid 35.5 percent from last Tuesday. Avengers: Age of Ultron has grossed $413.32 million in 26 days. Without adjusting for ticket price inflation, Avengers: Age of Ultron is now the 14th highest grossing film of all time domestically and will soon surpass the $415.00 million final gross of 2010's Toy Story 3 to move into 13th place.

Poltergeist grossed $1.77 million to remain in fifth place on Tuesday. The PG-13 rated horror remake from Fox and MGM was down 52 percent from Monday. That represented the day's strongest daily percentage hold among wide releases, which is some welcome news after the film's initial front-loading over the weekend. Poltergeist has grossed $28.12 million in five days. That is in line with the film's wide ranging expectations and is 4 percent behind the $29.33 million five-day start of 2013's Evil Dead.
