Three new films worth mentioning opened this weekend, the action comedy 'Spy', the supernatural horror sequel 'Insidious 3' and the movie continuation of the highly successful #Television series 'Entourage'.
Eventually 'Spy' bested its competition and opened to a successful $30 million in the United States and in total $86 million worldwide. The action comedy film tells the story of a desk-bound, unfit CIA analyst volunteer, who goes undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent diabolical global disaster.
The movie was written and directed by Paul Feig, who was responsible for comedy hits 'Bridesmaid'  and 'The Heat' . The film stars Melissa McCarthy (who also played in the abovementioned movies, making this the third successful gig for the Feig-McCarthy duo), as well as Jessica Chaffin, Jude Law, and Jason Statham.
Albeit to its segmented reach, the third movie in the successful horror series 'Insidious 3' opened to a decent start at theaters, grossing for $35 million worldwide, already covering its mere $10 million production cost.
The new movie is actually a prequel to the first two episodes, and like before, it was written by Leigh Wannell, who was also responsible for directing the movie this time around (replacing James Wan). The three 'Insidious' films have now reached $300 million in revenue globally.
Even though 'Entourage' was a successful HBO TV series, the continuation of the story as a movie turned out to be a disappointment, with the movie reaching a weak $18 million in its opening weekend.
Meanwhile three movies continued their successful runs: George Miller's post-apocalyptic 'Mad Max' passed the $300 million, 'Pitch Perfect 2' the $250 million, while the newer Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's catastrophe movie 'San Andreas' the $150 million mark.
'Avengers: Age of Ultron' has also climbed to new heights by reaching $1.35 billion revenue worldwide and surpassing 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2' to become the 5th highest grossing film of all-time. #Celebrities #Cinema
