Many reviewers have skewered The Internship — starring Vaughn and Wilson as washed-up salesmen who become interns at Google — for being an advertisement for the giant tech company. Audiences were more generous, giving the comedy a B+ CinemaScore. The Internship is in a close race with Universal’s Fast and Furious 6 — which will jump the $200 million mark over the weekend in North America — and Now You See Me and could come in No. 4 if beat by the two holdovers.

From writer-director James DeMonaco, The Purge — costing a mere $3 million to make and already making its budget back — is set in a future where one night a year all crime is legal. The film received a C CinemaScore, not unusual for the genre.


UPDATED: Box Office Shocker: ‘The Purge’ Tops Friday With $16.7 Mil, Headed for $38 Mil Weekend.. The $3 million pic is vastly overperforming, while Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson comedy struggles as it eyes $19 million weekend; Joss Whedon’s “Much Ado About Nothing” scores at specialty box office.
