It was a fairy tale weekend with Cinderella taking the top spot, opening with $70 million.
Run All Night fell flat, opening at number two with a dismal $11 million.
After five weeks in release Kingsmen Secret Service climbed up a spot to number three with $6.2 million and a domestic total of $107.3 million. This teen action romp is a certified hit.
Focus had double vision dropping to number four its second week in release with just $5.8 million. Will Smith had better start looking at making Men in Black 4.
Chappie was crappie dropping all the way to number five in its second week of release with $5.8 million ($5K less than Focus).
The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel was less than sexy at number six with $5.7 million. I guess no one wants to pay to see senior citizens get some action.
Looks like SpongeBob won’t dry up anytime soon at number seven after six weeks in release and $4.1 million added to his $154.6 million domestic total.
McFarland USA fell back a lane to number eight with $3.6 million.
American Sniper climbed up two spots to number nine with $2.9 million added to its $341.5 million domestic total making it the highest grossing movie of 2014.
Rounding out the top ten, no pun intended, was The DUFF with $2.9 million.

It’s pretty much a lock that next week Insurgent will take the top spot, but just how much will it make in tickets sales? I’m guessing close to $75 million. Tune in to see if I’m right.
Until then, happy movie going!
