‘Spy’ Breaks Out The Big Guns For Box Office Debut

By Alyssa Pereira

Melissa McCarthy may play a bumbling secret agent in the newest Paul Feig film SPY, but the funny woman still rules the box office. The well-received film easily took the top spot at the theaters with $30 million.

In second place was the Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson-fronted San Andreas, the earthquake disaster flick, which is now in its second week. Critics believe the film will break $100 million worldwide at some point today.

Entourage, on the other hand, wasn’t so lucky. The film was so horribly-reviewed (some called it “misogynist”) that the film wound up in fourth place with a dismal $17.8 million for its five day cash income.

Aloha also continues to perform poorly, perhaps due in part to the casting decision drama plaguing the film.

1. Spy $30,000,000
