Furious slips but holds off new release

Furious slips but holds off new release
[May31-Jun2
]


#1- Fast & Furious 6 slipped by a large 65% ,to make $34.5million on its second weekend.With this F6 has made $480million worldwide ,and is $120million short of overtaking Fast5.

#2- Now You See Me made $28million which was upto studio expectations.The movie stars some of Hollywood's finest actors such as Jesse Eisenberg ,Morgan Freeman,Woody Harrelson,Michael Caine along with others.But even with such talent ,the movie failed to please the critics.The movie scored only 43% ,with critics saying that the director failed to extract anything from the already weak story.
Made from a budget of $75million ,the movie's success now mainly depends on its overseas collection.

#3- After Earth was another example of wasted talent.After Earth flopped hard with just $27million.With a budget of $130million AE is turning out into a big disaster.After Earth panned by critics ,scoring just 12%.This is director Shyamalan's second worst score after his previous attempt ,Airbender (6%) ,while its Will Smith's lowest scoring movie in his almost 30year career.After Earth's main issue seems to be its slow pace and poor direction.

#4- Star Trek Into Darkness suffered another steep fall as it made just $16.4million in its 3rd week.With this the movie has currently made a gross total of $328million which is somewhat par to that of its predecessor.

#5- Epic also made $16.4million.The animated kids adventure movie has so far made $150million thus safely making up its budget of $100million.

2013 Top 5
#5-G.I. Joe: Retaliation -$359million
#4-Fast & Furious 6- $480million
#3-Oz The Great and Powerful -$490million
#2-The Croods -$569million
#1-Iron Man 3 -$1.180 billion (#5 on all time grossing list)

The latest entry into Top 5 was Fast Furious 6 ,which has enough power to boost even further up the list to #3 by this week.

This week we have a comedy and a horror-thriller.Both are uninteresting so not gonna choose any.
1-The Purge-Starring Ethan Hawke ,the movie has a strange concept.The movie is about a day on which everyone can do whatever crime they want to do.The trailer was interesting but the concept is too weak.Initial reviews give it 63%

2-The Internship brings the Wedding Crashers team ,Owen Wilson & Vince Vaughn together.Its about two unemployed guys who compete against each other at an internship.
