788 views

PAST WEEKEND BOX OFFICE RANKINGS:

The Avengers: Age of Ultron still stood strong at #1 for the second weekend, not only in Kenya, but East Africa cinemas as a whole.  The ‘similar to Taken franchise’ film The Gunman helmed by Sean Penn debut at #2. Not strong enough to peak at the top spot, but strong enough to push Furious 7 to #3.

Family fun animated release Home from 20th Century Fox moves up to #4 after being #6 the previous week.  Proof that despite the top spots going to action centric releases, there are still pockets out there looking for some good-hearted humours family viewing.

Child 44 is a release worth mentioning if not for the fact that it’s Tom hardy’s second star vehicle releasing this coming weekend. The first is ofcourse the afore mentioned Mad Max: Fury Road.

Pitch Perfect was a surprise hit, a pleasantly surprising hit when it released in 2012.  Some fan love in the form of $$ was enough to bring the cast together again to rehearse for its sequel Pitch Perfect 2 that opens May 15.

Whether or not that sequel hits the right notes this coming weekend will totally be dependent on you 😉 So go on, go to the movies and have fun!
