Box Office Guru Wrapup: Furious 7 First to Four-peat in 3 Years

Sunday, Apr. 26 2015, 01:20 PM

In its fourth and final frame taking pole position, the action juggernaut Furious 7 held onto the top spot vaulting into triple-century territory domestically and joining the elite billion-dollar club overseas. The Universal smash grossed an estimated $18.3M dropping only 37% during a weekend that saw very little competition come its way. Most holdovers in the top ten had small declines. Furious 7 became the first film to spend four straight weeks at number one since 2012's The Hunger Games.
