'Avengers' Keeps Stacking Cash; Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara, Not so Much

Hulk (and the rest of The Avengers) continued to smash all other movies over the weekend, as Age of Ultron brought in another $72 million to win the box office for a second weekend to the surprise of absolutely no one. The movie has now made $875.3 million globally, which is an insane number, but also surprises no one. 

What was sort of surprising was how weak this week's No. 2 was, as Hot Pursuit, a movie about a hot cop who doesn't know how to be hot (Reese Witherspoon) and her hot prisoner who definitely knows how to be hot (Sofia Vergara​), debuted to only $13 million, according to Variety.

At this point, Witherspoon's great Mother's Day monologue on last night's SNL might be a bigger hit. 

Rounding out the top five this week was Age of Adeline ($5.6 million), Furious 7 ($5.2 million) and Paul Blart Mall Cop 2 ($5.2 million).
