Entourage Flops & Spy Destroys – Box Office (08/06/2015)
Melissa McCarthy is really proving herself to be quite the leading lady. The Bridesmaids star, 44, had the top movie this week with Spy opening to a $30million weekend, devouring its competition and coming just under her previous hit comedy The Heat (co-starring Sandra Bullock) that scored $39million and the initial tracking that predicted a take in the mid-30 range.
The Rock’s San Andreas finished in the second spot with $26.4million, bringing its North American total gross to $99 million.
Entourage, based on the HBO show, opened to a bad weekend, scoring $17.8million against a $35million budget and predictions (and hopes) of at least $20million.
