'Furious 7' Holds Steady in First on Monday with $1.16M; 'The Age of Adaline' Moves Into Second with $0.91MApril 28, 2015 12:51 PM

by Daniel Garris

Universal's Furious 7 took in $1.16 million on Monday to remain in first place at the daily box office. The seventh installment of the blockbuster franchise featuring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and the late Paul Walker was down 74 percent from Sunday and down 43 percent from last Monday. Furious 7 has grossed a massive $321.24 million in 25 days. That places the film a very impressive 45.5 percent ahead of the $220.80 million 25-day take of 2013's Fast & Furious 6.

Lionsgate's The Age of Adaline claimed second place with $0.91 million. The romantic drama starring Blake Lively declined 68 percent from Sunday's performance. The Age of Adaline has grossed $14.12 million in four days of release. That is on the high end of pre-release expectations and places the film 2 percent ahead of the $13.82 million four-day start of The Longest Ride earlier this month.

Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 placed in third with $0.62 million. Sony's modestly budgeted Kevin James led comedy sequel fell 83 percent from Sunday and a sizable 51 percent from last Monday. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 continues to run in line with expectations with a solid eleven-day take of $43.84 million. That places the film 1 percent behind the $44.23 million eleven-day 2011's Zookeeper.

A24's Ex Machina finished in fourth with an estimated $0.50 million. The critically acclaimed Alex Garland directed sci-fi film was down 64 percent from Sunday. Ex Machina has grossed a promising $7.33 million through 18 days of release. The film is currently running 49 percent head of the recent $4.91 million 18-day gross of It Follows.

Unfriended rounded out Monday's top five with $0.39 million. Universal's ultra low-budget horror film fell 71 percent from Sunday and 53 percent from last Monday. Unfriended has grossed $25.46 million in eleven days. That places the film 28 percent behind the $35.57 million eleven-day take of last year's Ouija.
