In the calm before the storm (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Furious 7 continued its dominance over the North American box office, while The Age of Adaline had a respectable debut in third place. The sixth sequel amassed another $18.3 million, getting its best hold yet with a 37% drop. It is the first movie since The Hunger Games in 2012 to top the box office for four straight weekends. Of course, without major new competition before the summer box office begins next weekend, another crowning position on the charts was expected.
The racing behemoth has already surpassed the $320 million mark and generally, it would be a lock to cross the $350 mark at this point. However, with Avengers: Age of Ultron set to assemble massive audiences next weekend – and likely gun for the opening weekend record, beating its predecessor – Furious 7 should lose much of its firepower, along with its IMAX and high format screens. »

Avengers: Age of Ultron hit theaters overseas this weekend and apparently bootleg copies are already hitting the Internet, but that won't stop it from becoming a monster release next Friday, putting an end to the box office domination of Furious 7. However, Furious 7 still had more than enough gas in its tank to take the #1 spot at the box office for the fourth weekend in a row, adding $18.2 million, bringing its domestic cume to $320.5 million while its worldwide total now sits at $1.32 billion. That worldwide total is enough to place Furious 7 in fifth all-time worldwide (and only third film ever to cross $1 billion internationally) just behind Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 ($1.34 billion). However, it has passed the Potter feature in foreign dollars and is now the third highest grossing international release of all-time, behind only Avatar and Titanic. As Forbes' Scott Mendelson puts it, "So yes, »

The mega-grossing sequel took the top spot at the weekend box office with $18.3 million, becoming the first film to come in first for four consecutive weekends since “The Hunger Games” in March of 2012. “Furious 7″ is one of only 29 films to pull off the feat. Its winning streak will almost certainly draw to a close next weekend when “Avengers: Age of Ultron” enjoys what most analysts project will be an opening of more than $200 million. Domestically, “Furious 7″ has earned $320.5 million.
Although it could not elbow “Furious 7″ from its perch atop the box office chart, Lively’s fantasy romance “Age of Adaline” scored a respectable $13.4 million from 2,991 locations. The Lionsgate/Lakeshore release had been projected to pull in $12 million and cost $30 million to produce. The two partners split the costs and any profits evenly between themselves. »

“Furious 7,” Universal’s blockbuster hot car sequel, capped its record-breaking run with a fourth consecutive triumph at the box office this weekend. And in the process, it moved past “Frozen” to become the fifth-highest grossing film globally ever. Lionsgate’s “The Age of Adaline,” a fantasy romance starring Blake Lively and “Game of Thrones” actor Michiel Huisman, opened with $13.3 million and on Friday even finished on top, ahead of “Furious 7.” But the action sequel had a big Saturday that powered an $18.3 million weekend and made it the first movie since 2012’s “The Hunger Games” to stay on top of the box office. »

The Universal action film made an estimated $18.3 million in North American theaters over the weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. The film has had little competition to challenge its juggernaut status throughout April.
The Blake Lively fantasy romance "The Age of Adaline" was the only new wide release of the weekend, and it came in third with $13.4 million. The Sony comedy "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" held up stronger than expected to earn $15.5 million in its second week of release.

Lionsgate released their new romantic/drama film, "The Age of Adaline," into theaters this weekend, and all the reviews have been turned in from the top, major movie critics. It turns out that about half of them liked it, which is better than nothing I guess. It got a mixed 51 score out of a possible 100 across 30 reviews at the Metacritic.com site. The film stars: Harrison Ford, Blake Lively, Ellen Burstyn, Kathy Baker, Amanda Crew and Michiel Huisman. We've supplied blurbs from a couple of the critics,below. Matt Zoller Seitz from RogerEbert.com, gave it a decent 75 grade, stating: " Ford's voice — always deep, lowered an octave by age and one more by William's longing — is even more powerful. This is Ford's best performance since "The Fugitive," maybe since "Witness." Kyle Smith over at the New York Post, gave it a 75 grade ,saying: " The film is as tender and endearing as a lamb, »

Universal’s “Furious 7″ is racing toward its fourth straight victory at the U.S. box office with an estimated $16.5 million weekend.

Blake Lively’s “The Age of Adaline” is giving “Furious 7” a run for the money at the box office this weekend, and “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2” isn’t far behind. The Vin Diesel-Dwayne Johnson hot car blockbuster still has the inside track at being the first movie to win four consecutive weekends since “The Hunger Games” did it in 2012. “Furious 7” rolled to $4.8 million from a market-high 3,808 theaters Friday, which Universal estimates will translate into a roughly $16 million three-day total. That would probably be enough for it to reclaim the No. 1 spot it has held »

Blake Lively's romantic fantasy The Age of Adaline won the Friday box office race with $5 million from 2,991 theaters for a projected North American debut in the $12 million-plus range. Sill, that won't be enough to come in ahead of holdover Furious 7, which will win the sleepy weekend with an estimated $16.3 million from 3,760 theaters as it jumps the $300 million mark domestically. On Friday, the Universal blockbuster came in No. 2 with $4.8 million. Sony's Mall Cop 2 grossed $3.8 million Friday from 3,760 locations for an estimated weekend

Everywhere I look, all I see is Michael Huisman. On Game of Thrones, there he is as Daario Naharis – swashbuckling adventurer and wooer of the queen of dragons. One immensely popular show though does not suffice for Huisman. The Dutch actor, since transitioning to the U.S. from Amsterdam, has appeared in a bevy of shows ranging from Treme to Orphan Black to Nashville. Now Huisman takes the leap into cinemas, costarring opposite Blake Lively in the romance The Age of Adaline. In the picture, Huisman plays the world’s greatest guy: Ellis Jones – a handsome multi-millionaire philanthropist. Nobody else even stands a chance. Typically romances are founded on the dilemma of two competing suitors. Should the male or female lead go off and live ‘happily ever after’ with [Option A] or [Option B]? In The Age of Adaline, there is no [Option B]. Either Lively chooses to be with Huisman or she chooses to be with no one. »

Blake Lively has been extremely busy recently promoting her new movie Age of Adaline. So when the 27-year-old actress had to sit down for an interview with the L.A. Times, the multitasking mom had no choice but to bring baby daughter James with her! In fact, Lively even breastfed her little girl during the one-on-one chat! L.A. Times writer Amy Kaufman writes, "'Hi,' Blake Lively says, extending her free hand. Her other one is occupied, cradling her swaddled newborn, who nurses at her chest. She sits down on a couch, props a pillow on her lap and continues breast-feeding." Can you imagine?! "Lively hoped to conceal her pregnancy until she gave birth but shared the news at seven »
The good, the bad and the Blake Lively. From action-packed promo tours to glamorous red carpet events, Hollywood's hottest starlets stepped out this week in their favorite couture creations. While hot mama Blake looked chic in 10 different looks in 1 day during her "Age of Adaline" press marathon, new mom Hayden Panetierre was not-so-pretty-in-pink when she debuted her post baby bod this week. Kim Kardashian got it right (for once!) in a black eyelet Sophie Theallet gown at the Time 100 Gala, but the usually-stylish Olivia Wilde looked sloppy in sequins at the Tribeca Film Festival. Check out the clip above to see who toofab's Candice Brock, Anna Kachikyan and lifestyle blogger Sormeh Salimpour picked for the best and worst dressed stars, and take a closer look at the week's questionable fashion below!

Now that the Blake Lively parade is on pause, it's time to refocus our attention on two other worthy ladies—we're looking at you, Reese Witherspoon and Sofía Vergara. While promoting their upcoming flick, Hot Pursuit, the comedic pair have incited quite a style storm of their own. Point in case: Their most recent stop at 2015 CinemaCon in Las Vegas. Always a pink fan, Reese slipped into a popping J. Mendel magenta halter dress with punchy paisley embroidery. As for her 42-year-old co-star, Sofía slipped into a sultry white Cushnie et Ochs number with a striking mesh trim. For an appearance on Despierta America, Reese opted for a sweet pink fit-and-flare Shoshanna Eden frock with a subtle »
“Furious 7″ still has plenty of gas in the tank, as the tentpole’s poised to win its fourth straight weekend at the U.S. box office with about $16 million, according to early Friday estimates.
If “Furious 7″ can maintain its lead this weekend, it will become the first film to launch with four consecutive victories at the U.S. box office since Lionsgate’s “The Hunger Games” in 2012. Marvel/Disney’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” had four straight wins last summer domestically but in its fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh weekends in release.

Telling it like it is! Blake Lively opened up about motherhood and her career in a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, and chose not to sugarcoat the experience of welcoming and raising her first child, daughter James, 4 months. "Having a baby is just living in the constant unexpected," the Age of Adaline star, 27, explained. "You never know when you're gonna get crapped on or when you're gonna get a big smile or when that smile immediately turns into hysterics." "It might be like living [...] »
