Looks like there’s still some life in the old Divergent series yet. The latest flick in the personality test failures opened up with enough of a domestic North American impact to knock Cinderella down to second place, at around $54 million according to estimates. That’s almost on par with the first film, which made $54.6 million on opening weekend with an audience that was 60% female.

Sean Penn’s action flick The Gunman, bombed spectacularly. Making just $5 million on opening weekend, it’c clear that the genre for retired assassins and soldiers is starting to run dry. In terms of box office bombs, The Gunman is sitting pretty with other 2015 duds such as  Mortdecai ($4.2 million), Unfinished Business ($4.8 million) and Hot Tub Time Machine 2 ($5.96 million). Here’s a look at how the rest of the box office did:

  • Insurgent – $54 Million
  • Cinderella – $34.4 Million
  • Run All Night – $5.1 Million
  • The Gunman – $5 Million
  • Kingsman: The Secret Service – $4.6 Million
  • Do You Believe? – $4 Million
  • The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – $3.4 Million
  • Focus – $3.3 Million
  • Chappie – $2.6 Million
  • The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out Of Water – $2.3 Million

Top ten departures this week include McFarland, USA and The DUFF. The latest Kevin Costner sports drama pulled in just over $38 million so far, while American Pie’s spiritual successor The DUFF, made over $32 million from an $8 million budget for some quick cash.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
