'Furious 7' Speeds to $265.35M in Two Weeks After Leading Thursday with $2.92MApril 17, 2015 12:58 PM

by Daniel Garris

Universal's Furious 7 grossed $2.92 million on Thursday to lead the daily box office for a 14th straight day. The well-received seventh installment of the blockbuster franchise featuring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and the late Paul Walker was essentially unchanged from Wednesday's performance and down a sharp 65 percent from last Thursday. Furious 7 easily led the week with a weekly take $73.42 million. That represented a 62 percent decline from the film's opening week performance and brings the film's two-week total to a massive $265.35 million. Furious 7 is running an extremely impressive 45 percent ahead of the $183.19 million 14-day take of 2013's Fast & Furious 6.

Fox's The Longest Ride rounded out its first week of release with a second place take of $0.822 million. The Nicholas Sparks adaptation starring Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood was up 2 percent over Wednesday, which represented one of the day's better daily percentage holds among wide releases. The Longest Ride placed in third for the week with a seven-day start of $16.66 million. That was on the low end of pre-release expectations. The film is running 29 percent ahead of the $12.93 million seven-day take of last year's The Best of Me and 42 percent behind the $28.60 million seven-day gross of 2012's The Lucky One.

Fellow Fox release Home held steady in third place with $0.712 million. The successful 3D computer animated film from DreamWorks Animation was down 1 percent from Wednesday and down a sharp 77 percent from last Thursday. Home placed in second for the week with $21.76 million. The film was down 49 percent from the previous frame and has grossed a significantly stronger than expected $132.31 million through three weeks of release.

Woman In Gold was up one spot and 2 percent over Wednesday to move into fourth place on Thursday with $0.583 million. The drama from The Weinstein Company starring Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds placed in seventh for the week with $7.90 million. Woman In Gold has grossed a solid $11.36 million in 16 days and will be playing in 2,011 locations this weekend.

Warner's Get Hard was down one spot and 5 percent from Wednesday to round out Thursday's top five with $0.576 million. The R-rated comedy starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart placed in fourth for the week with $10.88 million. That was down 41 percent from the previous frame and brings the film's three-week total to $73.45 million.
