Home took in $3.60 million on Monday to lead the daily box office for a fourth straight day. The 3D computer animated film from Fox and DreamWorks Animation featuring the voices of Jim Parsons and Rihanna was down 75 percent from Sunday. That represented the day's largest daily percentage decline among wide releases and signals that the film is skewing very heavily towards family audiences. Home has grossed a significantly stronger than expected $55.71 million in four days. The film is currently running 62 percent stronger than the $34.44 million four-day start of last year's Mr. Peabody & Sherman and 16.5 percent stronger than the $47.84 million four-day take of 2013's The Croods.

Warner's Get Hard placed in second with $2.59 million. The R-rated comedy starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart was down 67 percent from Sunday. Get Hard continues to perform towards the higher end of pre-release expectations with a healthy four-day start of $36.92 million. The film is running 54 percent ahead of the $24.04 million four-day take of this year's The Wedding Ringer and 9 percent behind the $40.52 million four-day start of 2010's The Other Guys.

Lionsgate's The Divergent Series: Insurgent placed in third with $1.67 million. The second installment of the young adult series starring Shailene Woodley fell 68 percent from Sunday and 47 percent from last Monday. Insurgent has grossed a very solid $87.52 million through eleven days of release. That places the film 9 percent behind the $96.04 million eleven-day gross of last year's Divergent.

Cinderella claimed fourth place with $1.58 million. In the process, Disney's blockbuster fairy tale adaptation surpassed the $150 million domestic mark yesterday. Cinderella was down 66 percent from Sunday and down a solid 37 percent from last Monday. With an 18-day gross of $151.13 million, Cinderella is running 9 percent behind the $165.29 million 18-day take of last year's Maleficent.

It Follows rounded out Monday's top five with $0.367 million. The critically acclaimed horror thriller from RADiUS-TWC was down just 59 percent from Sunday, which was among the day's stronger daily percentage holds for wide releases. It Follows has grossed $4.91 million to date and will hope to hold up well going forward with the aid of strong word of mouth and critical reviews.
