The Divergent series continues to impress as the second feature in the series, “Insurgent” made another big splash in its debut this weekend.
It just seems like safe money to make a film from a teenage novel. Insurgent crushed the box office bringing in $54 million. It came in just shy of the $54.6 million that the first film of the series, “Divergent” brought in on its opening weekend last year, but hey, still pretty damn good enough to take the crown right off of “Cinderella[‘s]“ head who still sits pretty at No. 2 bringing in $34.5 million in its second week.
On the other hand, the opening weekend for “The Gunman” was a complete bust. Not even Idris Elba‘s appearance could save the movie from a horrific fail. The Gunman brought in an embarrassing $5 million which placed them at the No. 4 spot on the box office chart. Even Liam Neeson’s “Run All Night” brought in more money in its second week than The Gunman.
