"San Andreas" still rocks the charts

Writer: Florey DM


"San Andreas" spends another week on top in M'sia and S'pore

9 Jun – There's no denying Dwayne Johnson's disaster epic, "San Andreas", is still rumbling loud as it once again tops the charts in Malaysia and Singapore, and places second at the U.S. weekend box office chart for 4 to 7 June 2015.

U.S.' new release "Spy" has managed to infiltrate the number one spot on its opening weekend, making a gross of USD29 million. The Melissa McCarthy-starrer also nabbed the top spot straightaway when it was released two weeks earlier in Malaysia and Singapore, and to date has grossed USD85.5 million worldwide.

Disengaged by the espionage spoof, "San Andreas" slides down to number two with its weekend gross of USD25.8 million. However, thanks to its strong debut in the Chinese market, where Variety reports it picked up USD51 million over its first six days, it accumulates a global gross of USD287 million.

Number three on the chart goes to another newcomer, "Insidious: Chapter 3". The third instalment in the "Insidious" series scared up a weekend gross of USD22.7 million and collected USD37 million globally.


"Insidious: Chapter 3" was scary enough to land in the top three.

Still at number one in Malaysia is "San Andreas", despite the earthquake that has recently struck one of its states (a very rare occurrence in the country). Meanwhile, "Insidious: Chapter 3" opened last weekend at number two. "Masss" takes the last spot on the top three, down one rung from its previous position.

"San Andreas" again hung on tight to number one in Singapore. "Insidious: Chapter 3" opened at number two, while the future of "Tomorrowland" looks even dimmer as it went down one more place last weekend to number three.

Also opening in Malaysia last weekend were "Wira Wah", "Maggie", "Darah Panas", "Kaakka Muttai", "Dil Dhadakne Do" and "Love Is".

New movies that opened in Singapore last weekend include "Dil Dhadakne Do", "Kaakka Muttai", "Man Up", "Aloha", "The Road Within" and "Entourage".
