"Furious 7" ran laps around the competition, picking up $29.1 million in its third weekend of release, according to studio estimates.The fast cars sequel withe the gravity-defying stunts is barreling toward the $300 million mark Stateside, having already hurtled past the $1 billion mark globally. Despite "Furious 7's" continued dominance, "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" did better than expected, pulling in a solid $24 million across 3,633 locations.However, "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2" could not match the $31.8 million debut of the first film in the Blart chronicles.The film brought back Kevin James as the hapless shopping center cop, but transplanted the segway shenanigans to Las Vegas.Disney's "The Monkey Kingdom" bowed in seventh place, earning $4.7 million from 2,012 locations, while Fox Searchlight's "True Story" earned $1.9 million from 831 theaters.Along with "Child 44," it demonstrates the difficulty of launching a film geared at adults in the blockbuster era.
