Box Office: 'Spy' Laughs Past Rival Comedy 'Entourage,' Horror Film 'Insidious 3'

Elsewhere, 'San Andreas' continues to rattle the box office for a second-place finish in its sophmore outing.

Insidious: Chapter 3 may have narrowly topped the Friday box office, but Paul Feig's James Bond spoof Spy will have no trouble winning the weekend ahead of the horror threequel and rival R-rated comedy Entourage.

Spy grossed $10.3 million Friday from 3,711 theaters for a projected $32 million weekend. The ensemble title, starring Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne and Jude Law, looks like another win for Feig and McCarthy. From 20th Century Fox, the $65 million comedy has been embraced by critics, while earning a B+ CinemaScore from audiences.

Holdover San Andreas, the earthquake disaster film starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, continues to be a force of nature in its second outing. The movie is tipped to gross $25 million or more for the weekend, putting it at No. 2. Through Sunday, San Andreas will have earned nearly $100 million domestically for Warner Bros. and New Line.

Insidious 3 should follow closely behind at No. 3 with $23 million-$24 million after winning Friday with $10.4 million from 3,002 theaters.

From Blumhouse Productions and Focus Features' Gramercy Pictures label, the $10 million threequel marks the directorial debut of Insidious screenwriter Leigh Whannell and stars Dermot Mulroney, Stefanie Scott, Angus Sampson, Whannell and Lin Shaye. Insidious 3, rated PG-13, likewise earned a B+ CinemaScore.

Entourage is looking at a fourth-place finish. Looking to get some distance from Spy, the fan-driven title opened everywhere Wednesday and is now projected to post a five-day debut of $18 million (it had hoped to clear $20 million).

The movie adaptation of the HBO show reunites creator Doug Ellin with Adrian Grenier, Kevin Connolly, Jeremy Piven, Jerry Ferrara and Kevin Dillon, which picks up the story just a few months after the events at the end of the HBO show. Entourage cost under $30 million to make, and is doing best in Los Angeles and New York.
