We never thought we’d find a place where we belong. Apparently it’s in the number one spot! 22 Jump Street brought in $60 million its opening weekend.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 can keep its scaly head held high in the number two spot with a $50 million opening. That’s $7 million more than its predecessor.
Maleficent cast a spell over movie goers in the number three spot with $19 million, bringing its worldwide gross to $436 million!
Sadly, Edge of Tomorrow fell to number four with just $16 million. Its saving grace is a worldwide gross of $237 million versus its $178 million budget.
The Fault in our Stars took a nose dive to number five after a smashing opening weekend. However, with a tiny budget of $12 million and a worldwide gross of $120 million that is one healthy profit margin!
X-Men: Days of Future Past came in at number six with $9.5 million and a worldwide gross of $661 million. These mutants certainly have the X factor.
Godzilla grumbled at number seven with $3.1 million and a total domestic gross of $191 million. Foreign grosses should secure a sequel for this pre-historic monster hit.
Seth MacFarlane should hang up his acting hat and stick to voice over. A Million Ways to Die in the West fell to number eight with just $3 million and a total domestic gross of $39 million.
Neighbors got some more laughs at number nine with $2.4 million and a worldwide gross of $228 million minus a small $18 million budget.
Rounding out the top ten and cooking up an Indie hit was Chef with $2.2 million.

It’s time I end this two week losing streak. I’ll go out on a limb and say Jersey Boys will beat out Think Like a Man Too for the win. Being from Jersey and knowing my father grew up with Frankie Valli, I don’t really have much choice. Tune in to see if I’m right.
Until then, happy movie going.
