WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:Tomorrowland topped the holiday weekend with ~33MM dollars...which ain't great against a 180MM budget.Nevertheless, as long as it doesn't bomb, Disney likely wrings added value out of the advertising for their parks. Pitch Perfect 2 places with 30.8MM on a 55.5 percent drop that ain't bad, considering how front-loaded this sequel might have been. Mad Max: Fury Road shows with 24.8MMon a 45 percent drop, which ain't bad for a violent, R-rated movie. The Poltergeist reboot did alright in the fourth slot with 22.6MM against a reported 35MM budget, despite blah reviews and word-of-mouth. Avengers: Age of Ultron rounds out the Top 5 with another 21.7MM to its already massive pile of moolah. Overall, this holiday weekend fell about 30MM short of last year's take.
