'San Andreas' On the Verge of the $60M Mark After Comfortably Leading Monday with $4.82MJune 02, 2015 12:43 PM

by Daniel Garris

Warner's San Andreas took in $4.82 million on Monday to easily lead the daily box office for a fourth consecutive day. The Dwayne Johnson led disaster film was down 70 percent from Sunday's performance, which strongly suggests that San Andreas will be much more of a weekend film. San Andreas continues to significantly outpace pre-release expectations with a strong four-day start of $59.41 million. That places the film 16.5 percent ahead of the $51.01 million four-day take of 2013's G.I. Joe: Retaliation and 20 percent behind the $74.09 million four-day gross of 2013's World War Z.

Fellow Warner Bros. release Mad Max: Fury Road took second place with $1.65 million. The critically acclaimed action film starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron was down 63 percent from Sunday and down 75 percent from last Monday's inflated Memorial Day performance. Mad Max: Fury Road has grossed $118.12 million through 18 days of release. That is on the high end of expectations and places the film 8 percent ahead of the $109.79 million 18-day take of 2012's Prometheus.

Universal's Pitch Perfect 2 claimed third place with $1.43 million. The successful musical comedy sequel starring Anna Kendrick fell 66 percent from Sunday and 81 percent from last Monday. Pitch Perfect 2 has grossed a strong $148.95 million in 18 days and is set to surpass the $150 million mark today. The film is currently running 27.5 percent ahead of the $116.80 million 18-day gross of last year's Neighbors.

Disney's Tomorrowland placed in fourth with $1.30 million. The pricy Brad Bird directed sci-fi film starring George Clooney was down 71 percent from Sunday and down a very sharp 86.5 percent from last Monday. Due in part to significant front-loading so far, Tomorrowland has grossed a softer than expected $64.99 million in eleven days. That places the film 14 percent behind the $75.56 million eleven-day take of 2011's Super 8.

Avengers: Age of Ultron rounded Monday's top five with $1.08 million. The blockbuster superhero sequel from Disney and Marvel declined 70 percent from Sunday and 83 percent from last Monday. The 32-day total for Avengers: Age of Ultron stands at $428.63 million. The film is currently in tenth place on the all-time unadjusted domestic chart and will soon surpass the $435.11 million lifetime gross of 1982's E.T. to move into ninth place.

Poltergeist landed in sixth place with $0.853 million. The PG-13 horror remake from Fox and MGM was down 59 percent from Sunday and down 77 percent from last Monday. Poltergeist has grossed $39.38 million in eleven days and is set to surpass the $40 million mark today. The film is performing on the low end of expectations and is running 7 percent behind the $42.27 million eleven-day gross of 2013's Evil Dead.

Sony's Aloha followed closely behind in seventh with $0.851 million. The Cameron Crowe directed film starring Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams was down 66 percent from Sunday. Aloha continues to perform below its already scaled back expectations with a soft four-day start of $10.52 million. That places Aloha 25 percent behind the $14.06 million four-day take of 2009's All About Steve.
