The focus was on a new debut at this weekend’s box office.
Bumping last weekend’s top film, Fifty Shades of Grey, out of the number one spot, was the crime comedy Focus, starring Will Smith as a veteran con artist and Margot Robbie as his attractive young intern. The film earned $19.1 million and is a hit with Tribute readers, holding a 4.5 star rating.
For the third straight week, Kingsman: The Secret Service remained the runner-up at second place. The action thriller earned $11.7 million this time around and currently sits at a 3.6 star rating with Tribute readers.
Also remaining in its previous slot was The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, coming in third for another week. This weekend the family film earned $11.2 million and dropped slightly to 2.9 stars with Tribute readers.
Dropping three spots to number four was last week’s top movie, Fifty Shades of Grey. This week the erotic film earned $10.9 million — a big drop from its debut two weeks ago at $82.6 million — and has a 3 star rating with Tribute readers.
Last, but not least, was the second debut of the weekend. Rounding out the top five at the weekend box office was The Lazarus Effect, starring Olivia Wilde and Mark Duplass. The horror thriller saw a $10.6 million dollar profit at the weekend box office. Tribute readers gave this film a 3 star rating. ~Sandra D. Sukraj
