Weekend Box Office Review For May 8th-10th

By on May 11, 2015 in ArticlesEntertainment

If you didn't make it to the movies this weekend you didn't miss too much. This weekend was mostly for playing catch up on the blockbusters you may have missed like Avengers: Age of Ultron or Furious 7. The new poorly rated film Hot Pursuit finished a distant second to the #1 Avengers. The $13 million Hot Pursuit made this weekend pales in comparison to the $236 million Avengers made last weekend during its opening!
