Disney's 'Tomorrowland' Wins Slow Memorial Day Weekend Boxoffice

LOS ANGELES - Disney's "Tomorrowland" won the weekend box office with $32.97 million as many stayed away from movie theaters during the Memorial Day weekend.

 

The movie's lackluster showing fell well below expectations despite its high-profile director Brad Bird, who directed Paramount's "Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol," and a cast that included the George Clooney, Hugh Laurie and country singer Tim McGraw.

 

Experts say it's unlikely now that "Tomorrowland" will be able to regroup and become a commercial success as more, high-powered movies will be releasing in the weeks ahead.

 

Even second place Universal comedy "Pitch Perfect" which slipped from the top spot it held last week, dropped by 55 percent from last week with $30.83 million for a 2-week total of $109.60 million. In third place was Warner  Bros.'s "Mad Max: Fury Road" with $24.81 million for a total of $88.25 million in its second week.

 

The rest stacked up this way:

 

4. "Poltergeist" (Fox) $22.60 million, for its opening week

5. "Avengers: Age of Ultron " (Disney) $21.69 million, $404.86 million

6. The Age of Adaline" (Lionsgage) $15.0 million, $39.90 million

7. "Hot Pursuit" (Warner Bros.) $3.61 million, $29.05 million

8. "Furious 7 " (Universal) $2.23 million, $347.12 million

9. "Far from the Madding Crowd" (Fox Searchlight) $2.20 , $5.45 million

10. "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" (Sony) $1.87 million, $65.70 million
