English Films Releasing this Friday

San Andreas has grossed $53 Million this weekend and it is expected to do a business of at least $500 million. Pitch Perfect 2 is slowing down at box office and made $14 million in its third week. George Clooney’s Tomorrowland was expected to be a blockbuster but the film has only crossed $13 million in its second week (overall $63 million).

The sequel of Avengers is still moving towards the title of highest grossing film of the year and it made $10 million this week. Cameron Crowe’s Aloha was criticized by critics and fan and it has turned out to be a huge flop.
