'Ant-Man' Dominates Weekend Box Office with $58 Million
Paul Rudd's new film "Ant-Man" became the 12th consecutive film by Marvel to grab the top spot during its opening weekend, grossing a whopping $58 million.
The Marvel film beat "Minions," which earned $50.2 million in its second week.
Amy Schumer's comedy film “Trainwreck" took in $30.2 million, which is $10 million more than originally projected. "Amy Schumer is absolutely a star,” Nick Carpou, Universal's Domestic Distribution Chief, said in a statement. “Based on exit polling, after the humor, she's the second-biggest reason people went out to see the film.”
"Trainwreck" became Judd Apatow's second-biggest opening, behind his 2007 hit film “Knocked Up."
Rounding out the top five at the weekend box office were "Inside Out" and "Jurassic World," which earned $11.7 and $11.4 million respectively.
