U.S. Release Date: June 5, 2015
U.S. Box Office: $110,156,495 (as of Aug. 24, 2015)

Why? For the first time since Bridesmaids (2011), the dynamic duo of Paul Feig-Melissa McCarthy scored raves and massive box office.

Why not? Buzz for this one fizzled rather quickly, despite the acclaim. Unless Joy’s a dud, expect that to be Fox’s big pony here.
