Also, The Other Woman is now available at Redbox.

In movies coming soon, check out Katie Holmes in the trailer for Miss Meadows.

Recapping Last Weekend

Guardians of the Galaxy returned to the top of the box office in its fourth weekend of release with a $17.2 million weekend. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the box office champ the previous two weekends, barely fell to second place with a $16.7 million weekend. If I Stay was the top debuting movie, with $15.8 million. As of this writing, it has earned $18.5 million on an $11 million budget. Let’s Be Cops only took a modest fall in its second weekend, finishing in fourth place with $15. 7 million and When The Game Stands Tall finished in fifth place with a $8.4 million opening.

The Expendables 3 continued its poor performance at the box office with a 59.2% drop to under $6.5 million in receipts in its second weekend. Hercules and its $100 million budget fell to $850,000 in its fifth weekend, barely topping Step Up All In.

Guardians of the Galaxy has now topped $500 million worldwide and is the top-grossing movie of the summer. It is also the seventh highest-grossing film to open in the last 365 days.

 

Opening This Weekend

 

The November Man

It’s been a long time since Pierce Brosnan has been in a legitimate box office hit. This isn’t the 1990s, where Brosnan was James Bond. The November Man opened yesterday in 2,774 theaters across North America and grossed $862,000.  Entertainment Weekly gave this one a “C”. The November Man is loosely based on a novel by the late Bill Granger. Rope of Silicon projects this one to earn about $9 million Friday – Sunday and goes out on a limb to call If I Stay as the box office winner.

 


As Above, So Below

Want to be scared this weekend? As Above, So Below is for you. Perdita Weeks is the female lead in this horror flick. You may have seen her in one of the five miniseries she’s been in. Ben Feldman plays the make lead. He’s had parts in Cloverfield and the 2009 Friday the 13th remake. He’s also been on Mad Men since 2012 and has appeared on two episodes of The Mindy Project. Mike McCahill very well may just not like “found footage” movies and thus called this flick “silly”. Good thing this movie isn’t trying to win an Oscar though. 87% of Rotten Tomatoes users want to see it.

As Above, So Below likely won’t come anywhere close to winning the holiday weekend box office, but it’s predicted to earn around $11.5 million and be the top film debuting this weekend. Considering initial reports had this film’s budget at between $5-10 million, an opening weekend covering that would be great for Legendary Pictures.


Catch It Before It’s Gone

 

Keller 8 Cinema welcomes X-Men: Days of Future Past and Get On Up this weekend. If you haven’t seen the newest X-Men flick yet, take this chance to see it in theaters before it’s gone.


Make It A Redbox Night

The Other Woman and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 are available at your local Redbox this weekend. I failed royally saying you should rent Sabotage so I won’t recommend one, although both of these films have to be better than that.

Coming Soon

Miss Meadows

Starring Katie Holmes


 

Fury

Starring Brad Pitt.
