Furious 7 is still on top of the box office in its third week in theaters, with the flick starring Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker taking in $29.1 million over the weekend.
The weekend numbers, reported by box officer tracker Rentrak, bring the film’s domestic total earnings to about $300 million. The domestic numbers follow news earlier this weekend that Furious 7 surpassed $1 billion in ticket sales worldwide in just 17 days, the fastest time that figure has been achieved by any film.
Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, the comedy starring Kevin James, earned $24 million to open in second place with a stronger showing than expected. Unfriended, a horror film with a tiny $1 million budget, finished in third with $16 million. Home and The Longest Ride filled out the top 5, taking in $10.3 million and $6.85 million, respectively.
