Dreamworks’ cartoon aliens in Home took the top spot at the box office this weekend with a solid debut of $54 million. The Kevin Hart–Will Ferrell comedy Get Hard also had a respectable debut, bringing in $34.6 million. Meanwhile, last week’s big winner, Insurgent, got bumped to third with $22 million. Cinderella continued its dreamy run, adding $17.5 million in its third weekend and bringing its total domestic haul to $150 million. It Follows also expanded into more than 1,200 theaters this weekend to bring in $4 million after a strong word-of-mouth campaign that it’s absolutely terrifying.
