The Long, Furious Ride to the Local Multiplex

A book adaptation about young love steering along on a weepy drive was getting some press this weekend on The Longest Ride to the ironically closest movie theater, but the real page turner taking the quickest stride to the box-office finish line ended once again on a poignant but Furious 7 note. Animation was riding that lightning-quick bumper on the way Home, finding fame, fortune and a cozy alienation happily waiting. Not-quite-cozy comedy was also traveling the cinematic circuit, prompting audience members to Get Hard and cut in line at the concession stand. The always-patient Cinderella, of course, was happy to wait her turn, trusting that make-believe history wouldn’t let her down, her prince would finally come and her happy (movie) ending would ultimately occur in the most fashionable, fairy-tale way.

Which of our legendary tales was worth the longest ride to the local multiplex for you this enchanted weekend?

Domestic Box Office Estimates:

  1. Furious 7 $60.6 million.
  2. Home $19 million.
  3. The Longest Ride $13.5 million.
  4. Get Hard $8.6 million.
  5. Cinderella $7.2 million.
