'The Purge: Anarchy' earned the position of no. 2 with 28.4 million dollars, while 'Planes: Fire & Rescue' underwhelms with 18 million dollars; following at no. 4 was Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel's new R-rated comedy, 'Sex Tape' with 15 million dollars and 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' rounded out the top five, grossing 227.2 million dollars in its fourth weekend but Richard Linklater's 'Boyhood' quickly became a hit at the specialty box office.
