Box Office: Melissa McCarthy takes top spot with $30 Million debut for ‘Spy’
Melissa McCarthy was #1 at the box office over the weekend. Her new movie Spy took in $30 million beating last week’s leader San Andreas which grossed $26.4 million.
Overall it was a third week of disappointed for the summer box office which is performing lower that last year. But things should change next weekend when Jurassic World is predicted to take in $100 million.
I’m still happy for Melissa McCarthy though. She took a movie to #1 on her star power alone. And it looks like Spy may have a good run according to Variety. The film cost $65 million to make and it’s worldwide total is already at $86.5 million.
