WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Furious 7 easily repeats atop the chart with 60.6MM, on a 59 percent drop not uncommon to a summer blockbuster (a bit better than the secnd frame for Toy Story 3, a bit behind The Dark Knight Rises). Home places with 19MM on a 30 percent drop the studo probably likes. The debut of The Longest Ride shows with 13.5M, right about where a Sparks tear-jerker opens. Probably good exposure for Scott Eastwood. Get Hard drops to the fourth slot with 8.6MM and an 84MM worldwidetotal; still some ways to profit against a 40MM budget and likely big ad costs. Cinderella rounds out the Top Five with 7.2MM, and will likely finish over 500MM worldwide.
