Recapping Last Weekend

 

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 took the weekend box office easily in its second weekend. The third movie in the Jennifer Lawrence-led franchise brought in just shy of $57 million in its second weekend. While almost $20 million shy of the second movie’s second weekend, the original Hunger Games brought in $58.5 million in its second weekend. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 has now brought in $231.4 million domestically and $485.8 million worldwide in twelve days of release.

Penguins of Madagascar brought in $25.4 million in its debut to finish second at the box office. Big Hero 6 dropped a paltry 6.5 percent between its third and fourth weekends of release to $18.8 million. Interstellar finished fourth with $15.7 million, which was 2.6 percent better than its previous weekend, despite dropping out of 285 theaters. Horrible Bosses 2 rounded out the top five with $15.5 million in its opening weekend.

Dumb and Dumber To finished outside the top five in its third weekend with $8.3 million. From weekends two to three, the sequel’s receipts dropped 40.6 percent. The film will still be a financial success, as it was made for about $35 million. It has grossed $105.6 million thus far.

 

Opening This Weekend

 

Wild

 

Reese Witherspoon stars as a Cheryl Strayed, who took a 1,100-mile hike alone of the Pacific Crest Trail after dealing with personal struggles that included the passing of her mother. Strayed recently touched on how her life has changed with Cosmopolitan. Witherspoon optioned the book before it was even published.

Wild is only opening in limited released this weekend, but will be expanding soon. STL Cinemas says it is coming soon to the Moolah Theatre.

See Wild tonight at Wehrenberg Ronnies 20 Cine.


The Pyramid

 

Looking for something to tickle your horror movie fancy? The Pyramid will do for this weekend. The team of Alexandre Aja and Grégory Levasseur have previously been behind horror films like The Hills Have Eyes, High Tension and Mirrors.

From IMDb:

“An archaeological team attempts to unlock the secrets of a lost pyramid only to find themselves hunted by an insidious creature.”
