Recapping Last Weekend


The Maze Runner took the weekend with $32.5 million, falling $1.5 million short of making back its budget in its first weekend. A Walk Among the Tombstones came in second the $12.8 million and This is Where I Leave You was right on its heels with $11.6 million in receipts. No Good Deed fell almost 60 percent in its second weekend, falling just short of $10 million. Dolphin Tale 2 fell 44 percent to $8.9 million for fifth place.

Guardians of the Galaxy, in its eighth weekend of release, earned $5 million to pass the $310 million mark domestically.


Opening This Weekend


The Equalizer


Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua worked together on Training Day and reunite for The Equalizer. Will Leitch over at Deadspin enjoyed it. Case closed, go see it.

Screen Rant is predicting a $38 million opening.

See The Equalizer tonight at MX Movies at 8 pm before it opens across the country tomorrow.



The Boxtrolls


This is the latest stop-motion flick from Laika, which has previously come out with Coraline and ParaNorman. Reviews from around the web liked The BoxTrolls for its charm and “all things cheesy”. These five things about it are pretty cool too.

The Boxtrolls has already earned $11 million overseas. BoxOffice.com is predicting a $14 million opening here in the States.

Catch It Before It’s Gone


Keller 8 Cinema welcomes Lucy, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For  and The Giver this weekend. Lucy is by far the biggest box office success of the trio, earning $378 million worldwide in its theater run thus far. Sin City has been a dud with just $13.7 million in five weeks of release. The Giver has made $43 million in six weeks on a $25 million budget.

Make It A Redbox Night


Blended comes to Redbox this week. I saw the Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler comedy last night and it’s a good time. It’s definitely worth the $1.20. Is it the best movie of the year? Is it largely predictable? Are there lots of laughs? All yes.


Coming Soon


The Boy Next Door

Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Guzman and Kristin Chenoweth star in this film about a forbidden affair gone very wrong that opens in January next year.  The trailer does not show Ryan Guzman showing any of his sweet dance moves from his Step Up days.

Maps To The Stars

Julianna Moore and Robert Pattinson star in Maps To The Stars, which recently debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film has already been released in several countries, but will be released the the U.S. later this month.

Ryan is a weird dude. He doesn't cook, yet owns a plethora of kitchen gadgets. He rationalized buying a SodaStream while unemployed. He counts Step Up 2: The Streets as one of his favorite movies along with Footloose, Rent, Grease and Paul Blart: Mall Cop. He loves Mizzou but only wants them in the SEC so he can tailgate in Nashville. He owns a ShakeWeight and AbLounger, but still loves him some John Donut and Billie's Fine Foods. You can get more of Ryan at iLoveSoulard.com or just check the stool on the far end of the bar at iTap in Soulard.
