Opening in second place was the Kevin James comedy Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, which gave Furious a good run, but ultimately fell about $5 million short with it’ intake of $24 million. Also opening strongly was the social media-themed horror, Unfriended, which brought in $16 million to take third place. The Rihanna and Jim Parsons voiced feel-good family flick, Home, was good for $10 million this week to land in fourth place.
