Furious 7 is only in its second weekend, and it’s already made more than any of the other Fast and Furious films made throughout their entire runs. For example: 2013’s Fast & Furious 6 made $238.7 million over 15 weeks. Furious 7 made $252.5 million over two.

Box office preview: Furious 7 races toward No. 1

Comments +

The box office—as well as fans of the Fast and Furious franchise—is about to have a good weekend: Furious 7 is arriving in theaters.

The previous film in the franchise, 2013’s Fast & Furious 6, opened with an impressive $97.4 million—but forecasts for the seventh predict this one will earn even more thanks to increasing buzz and, sadly, the 2013 death of star Paul Walker.

Box office preview: Home faces off against Get Hard

Comments +

While YA release Insurgent ruled the box office last week, this weekend’s biggest battle will be between two new—and completely different—films.

R-rated comedy Get Hard, starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, will go up against Dreamworks’ latest animated film, Home. Both releases are hoping to attract distinctly different audiences, which should make for a tight race as the two fight for box office dominance.

Both major releases are suffering from terrible reviews, and will have to play off their star power and respective demographics to pull ahead. It Follows is also expanding to over 1,000 theaters this weekend, and the horror film, which has played well and earned plenty of buzz so far, may have a chance of sneaking into the top 5. Here’s how the weekend might play out:

Box office preview: Insurgent to usurp Cinderella's throne

Comments +

Cinderella injected some life into the box office last weekend, but she’ll have to step out of the ballroom and onto the battlefield as she goes up against a dystopian heroine this week.

After the first film’s success, The Divergent Series: Insurgent is bound to top the box office despite middling reviews thanks to a dedicated fanbase for Veronica Roth’s young adult book series. Following the continuing adventures of Tris, Insurgent’s other big competition opening this week is the Sean Penn-starring action film The Gunman and the faith-focused Do You Believe?

Both of those films are likely not to give either Insurgent or Cinderella a run for their money, but they, along with Run All Night, will vie in a close race to fill out the top five. Here’s how the weekend might play out:
