Weekend Movie Guide: Tranformers 4

 

Transformers: Age of Extinction will own the box office this weekend largely by virtue of being the only movie opening in wide-release this weekend. The Railway Man and Million Dollar Arm are at Keller 8 in South County and Blood Ties may be your best bet at Redbox.

Recapping Last Weekend

 

Think Like A Man Too made back its $24 million budget with $29.2 million in its opening weekend once all of the numbers were counted. 22 Jump Street came in second with $27.4 million in its second weekend. The sequel has now made almost $120 million domestically. 21 Jump Street made $138.5 million during its 15 week theater run in 2012. How to Train Your Dragon 2 came in third with $24.7 million in its third weekend of release. The sequel is slightly ahead of the original’s pace. Jersey Boys came in fourth with a dismal, but not unexpected, $13.4 million in its opening weekend. Maleficent rounded out the top five in its fourth week of release with $12.9 million.

The Fault in Our Stars fell to seventh in its third week, but it has now grossed $102 million domestically on a $12 million budget.

Opening This Weekend

 

Transformers: Age of Extinction

 

The fourth installment in the Transformers franchise gives it a go without Shia Labeouf, but as Mike Ryan points out on Screen Crush, it doesn’t really matter. This latest film was made for $210 million, a decent jump from 2011’s Dark of the Moon. That third movie brought in $1.12 billion worldwide and the movies together have brought in just shy of $2.8 billion combined. The producers took special care with this fourth movie to be sure it will clean up at the Chinese box office. Screen Rant predicts a $96 million opening weekend. If audiences turn out in droves to see Mark Wahlberg instead of Labeouf then it could easily top $100 million.

 

Catch It Before It’s Gone

Keller 8 Cinema welcomes The Railway Man and Jon Hamm’s Million Dollar Arm this weekend. Railway Man stars Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman. It’s based on Eric Lomax’s book about his experiences as a POW in WWII. Eric’s story leaves out a significant portion of his life. Here’s how the book compares to the movie.

 


Make It A Redbox Night

 

Of the movies Redbox welcomes to the bin this week, be careful of Enemy with Jake Gyllenhaal and Isabella Rossellini. Reviewers were not too fond of the ending. Watch at your own risk. Endless Love, on the other hand, got great reviews. Blood Ties with Clive Owen, Billy Crudup, Mila Kunis and James Caan got slightly above-average reviews on the Redbox site.
