The Broadway hit Jersey Boys comes to the big screen this weekend and Kevin Hart returns in Think Like A Man Too.
Recapping Last Weekend
22 Jump Street topped the weekend with just over $57 million weekend. How To Train Your Dragon 2, made for $145 million, came in second with $49.5 million. Maleficent brought in an additional $18.5 million to push its domestic total to $163 million in three weeks. Edge of Tomorrow dropped 42.5% to $16.5 million and The Fault in Our Stars rounded out the top five with $16.5 million. Stars has now brought in over $80 million in two weeks against its $12 million budget. Tom Cruise has struggled with $57 million domestically in two weeks. Edge of Tomorrow is raking in money overseas, however, to the tune of $181 million.
Opening This Weekend
The Broadway musical about Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons comes to the big screen courtesy of director Clint Eastwood. Joe Williams of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch really didn’t like this film. Mick Lasalle of the San Francisco Gate seemed it like it. Early projections for the film are not good, especially when you consider its $40 million budget.
Think Like A Man Too
The original Think Like A Man brought in $91.5 million domestically during its theater run in 2012, including a $33.6 million opening weekend. Kevin Hart and Gabrielle Union are among those back and Adam Brody is among this who’ve joined the cast. The Guardian liked this sequel, even without much of a plot. Critics on Rotten Tomatoes did not like it, but the people who actually pay to see movies want to see it. This one is projected to win the box office this weekend.
Catch It Before It’s Gone
Keller 8 Cinema welcomes Bears and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 this weekend. Who doesn’t love bears?
Make It A Redbox Night
Two quality movies come to your local Redbox this weekend. Kevin Costner’s 3 Days To Kill should be well worth your money if you liked Taken and Air Force One. Elizabeth Banks of Pitch Perfect fame brings her hilarious flick Walk of Shame to Redbox this week too.
