Weekend Box Office: “Adaline” neck and neck with no-neck “Furious,” “Ex Machina” opens well

boxofficeLast weekend in April, most of the releases rolled out this weekend are in the tentative territory.

The faith-based fumble “Little Boy” is on over 1,000 theaters, and may barely crack the Top Ten, per Deadline.com.

“Ex Machina”, very smart, very sexy sci-fi, opens wide and looks as if it’ll manage over $5 million. Call that a win for A24.

“The Water Diviner” is getting passable reviews (barely) but not a lot of theaters. The people who will never get over having gotten over Russell Crowe won’t make this much of a hit. Barely over $1 million on a few hundred screens. Pity.

The top spot is too tight to call This Sat. AM, with the romantic “Age of Adaline” a few thousand behind the fourth week of the Dead Paul Walker movie — “Furious 7.” Both look to be $16-17.

“Paul Blart 2” plunged, but didn’t plummet.

    Ex-machina was surprisingly good. I cannot wait to watch it again in bluray.
