Avengers: Age of Ultron has 2nd best second weekend ever
1. Avengers: Age of Ultron – $77.2 million [2nd weekend; $312 million] ‘Ultron’s’ success would be gang busters for any other film, but it remains in the shadow of its predecessor, which made box office history with a $103 million second weekend.
We all pretty much considered it a given that ‘Ultron’ would become the new box office standard and could possibly challenge ‘Avatar’ as the all-time champ. Instead, we’re realizing just how impressive ‘The Avengers‘ box office run really as and that it’s going to take a very special movie to beat the $623 million domestic haul of the 2012 hit. In some consolation, ‘Ultron’ is on track to beat the worldwide haul of the original as it’s on track for $1.51 billion putting it behind ‘Avatar’ ($2.8 billion) and ‘Titanic’ ($2.2 billion).
2. Hot Pursuit – $13 million [debut week] Way out in the distance was the Sofia Vergara/Reese Witherspoon collaboration. Its final numbers might change as it could have a better than anticipated Sunday thanks to Mother’s Day crowds.
3. The Age of Adeline – $5.6 million [3rd week; $31.5 million] Blake Lively’s romance drama continues holding down third place and also could reap some benefits from Sunday audiences.
4. Furious 7 – $5.2 million [6th week; $338.4 million] Even in the face of ‘Avengers’ ruling the box office, Vin Diesel and company are still holding their own. Worldwide, the film has hit $1.5 billion.
5. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 – $5.1 million [5th week; $58.1 million] Kevin James’ comedy is plugging along, but now it can’t boast being the No. 1 comedy in the box office anymore.

That AOU had the second best 2nd weekend ever is the second best news i have heard all week. ^_^
What was your first? ?
Just google “Scotland Election 2015”, lol.
The Political party i vote for won 56 of 59 seats in Scotland on friday, following the Thursday General Election in the UK. It’s a momentous time in Scottish History and the beginning of something even larger.
That’s very cool. It’s always a great feeling when your political party is the one with the momentum. Hope it works out well for you all!
Well The entirety of Scotland voted for the Scottish National Party, and we are still being ruled by the Conservatives. But hopefully it will work out.
im ready for the coversatives to be run out my state… but im in red land. Anyway. Jeff finally rented the wedding ringer. It was a good/cute R rated movie. But it was not worth movie admission. Yep pricing is stopping me from paying the extra bucks. From know I will just ask is movie worthy or wait for home to go with your reviews for comedies lol. Yet it was still funny. It will take a lot for hart to fail me. He has a long rope with me. I feel like the script and pacing was weird in that movie. As far the girl from big bang.. she better pull a jennifer aniston, keep getting really ripped for the final act of her hot phase of her career. This movie did nothing for her and it was a weird turn in the final act. I rather see Gad and hart do something like a trading places switch but I guess thats what get hard will be. I think these two are on to something just not all the way on this one. I would love to see another ebony and ivory movie comedy team like pyror and wilder lol. They were great growing up
I liked their chemistry too. Hoping they’ll get another movie together
