Devil’s Due brought in a dismal $9 million in its opening weekend, although that is still ahead of its $7 million budget. The Wolf of Wall Street brought in $8.4 million in its fourth weekend to move within $8 million of its $100 million budget.
Opening This Weekend
This film has taken the long road to theaters. It was shot in 2012 and previously had two different release dates last year. The Frankenstein character has seen a whole lot of screentime since being introduced by Mary Shelley in 1818. If you like the Underworld movie franchise, you would like this movie since it’s from the same people. Aaron Eckhart plays Adam, the monster created by Dr. Frankenstein. Eckhart previously portrayed Harvey Dent in The Dark Knight and the POTUS in Olympus Has Fallen. It’s an incredibly safe play to bet that Frankenstein won’t come close to their box office totals. Yvonne Strahovski, who played Sarah Walker on Chuck is also in the film.
Inside Llweyn Davis
This project from the Coen brothers tells the story of a fictional folk singer trying to make it in New York in the 1960s. While Llewyn Davis is fictional, the story is inspired by Dave Van Ronk‘s autobiography. If life was fair, this film would be raking in awards. It unfortunately is up for them at a time there are quite a few other contenders. Oscar Issac plays the title character and did his own singing in the film. He has been nominated for a slew of awards for his work. John Goodman, Casey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake also are featured in the film. Check it out at a few theaters around St. Louis.
Catch It Before It’s Gone
Dallas Buyer’s Club will still be playing this weekend at the newly-digital “land of misfit movies”, if you haven’t seen Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto’s performance in that yet. Justin Bieber’s Believe also makes its debut. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is one that you probably need to see in the theater while it is still there. Check out the trailer. Be sure to follow Keller 8 on Facebook for the latest news.
Make It A Redbox Night
Captain Phillips and Blue Jasmine are both available to rent for $1.20 this week. If you’re typically a fan of Woody Allen, you’ll like Jasmine. Instructions Not Included will require you to do some reading, but it is well worth it. It was a surprise hit at the box office. Check out the trailer.
With all of these movies out at Redbox, it’s the perfect time to sign up for the Redbox Mobile Text Club for free movies.
