The Purge Is Number 1 at Box Office! The Internship Bombs


The Purge is a big hit!

The horror movie, starring Ethan Hawke and Lena Headey, came in a strong first place this weekend at the box office with earnings of $34 million!  Very impressive for a movie which only had a $3 million budget. In fact, the movie definitely surpassed its $20 million opening predictions.

Still going strong is the Fast & Furious 6 as it came in second with a $19.6 million gross. In just three weeks since it opened, the movie has now grossed over $200 million, surpassing its $160 million budget.

Now You See Me, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mark RuffaloWoody Harrelson, and Isla Fisher finished third with $19 million.

Fourth place went to The Internship, starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, with earnings of $17.3 million. Safe to say the movie, which cost a reported $58 million to make, bombed.

The animated movie Epic came in fifth with a gross of $11.8 million.
