Box Office: “Spy” close to $32 million, “Insidious 3” $22 — “San Andreas” may reach $100

boxIt’s “Aloha” for “Aloha,” which opened feeble and is fading out of the top ten.

But it didn’t fade enough for “Love & Mercy” to crack the top ten on its opening weekend. On under 500 theaters, the Brian Wilson bio pic, critically acclaimed, is well under $1 million for its opening weekend.

“Spy” of course is the big news, a very good $31-32 million opening weekend, based on a robust Friday night.

“San Andreas” is still making oodles of money and should finish the weekend in the ballpark of $100 million.

“Insidious: Chapter 3” is managing a very solid $21 million+ for its opening weekend. Will it catch the inferior “Poltergeist” any time soon? Maybe. Horror movies have a limited overall take, as a general rule.

“Entourage” opened Wed. and looks to be at $18 million by Sunday night — that’s a $10 million weekend. Movie couldn’t have cost that much.

“Pitch Perfect 2” will be at over $160 for the summer by weekend’s end, “Mad Max” over $130, ““Tomorrowland” is running out of gas and may not reach $100 million.
