"Furious 7" kept the pedal to the metal with a fourth week atop the North American box office. The 7th film in the "Fast and Furious" franchise raked in $18.2 million over the weekend, bringing its worldwide haul to a massive 1.3 billion dollars. In other movie news, "Avengers: Age of Ultron" opened in select international markets and has already taken in 201 million dollars. Its top market was South Korea, where it took in 28.2 million, making it the second highest opening of all time in that country. "Avengers" opens in the U.S. on May 01. Lil Wayne's tour bus was fired upon on Sunday (April 26) after the rap star and his entourage finished a performance in Atlanta. Multiple gunshots were fired at his two tour buses. No one was hurt in the incident and so far police have not arrested any suspects. A new film about the late Amy Winehouse is misleading, this according to the singer's father Mitch Winehouse who is now disassociating himself with the documentary. Winehouse said he was not happy with the way the makers of "AMY" had portrayed him, saying it made him out to be a villain. "AMY" will be screened at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
