Weekend Box Office Review For June 5th-7th

By on June 9, 2015 in ArticlesEntertainment

This weekend, new movies took three out of the top four spots at the box office and Spy came out on top. The top three were pretty bunched up and Entourage basically bombed with a disappointing $10 million in 4th place. Mad Max: Fury Road still hasn't made its money back after a month and Tomorrowland is still way short of its $190 million budget. Look for all of these movies to get crushed by Jurassic World next week. Here is a breakdown of the top movie money makers for this past weekend.
