Weekend Boxoffice for black cinema US Canada

Brad Pitt latest movie Fury, finally knocked the Ben Affleck/Tyler Perry starrer Gone Girl From the top spot this weekend. Zoe Saldana’s animated movie The book of life did solid numbers, grossing over $17 million on a $50 million budget.

Denzel’s R-rated drama, The Eqaulizer, is still solidly pulling an adult audience, the movie is steadily making its way to the magic $100 million figure – its performing well worldwide too. At final run, The Eqaulizer should gross approximately $195 million worldwide – incredible numbers from a $50 million budgeted R-rated flick (The Eqaulizer 2 is coming for sure).

The Taraji P. Henson and Edris Elba surprise hit flick – No Good Deed – has not posted a weekend figure but the $13 million film has more than outperformed expectations so far grossing more than $53 million worldwide (a sequel is a possibility, No Good Deed 2, maybe).
