Recapping Last Weekend

Avengers: Age of Ultron of course ran away with the weekend box office. It fell short of the opening weekend record, set in 2012 by Marvel’s The Avengers, however. The record of $207.4 million was safe as Age of Ultron topped out at $191.3 million in its opening.

Furious 7 fell out of 503 theaters across the country, but still came in second overall for the weekend at the box office with $6.6 million. The Age of Adaline finished third in its second week of release with $6.2 million. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 brought in $5.88 million and Home brought in $3.47 million to finish out the top five.

Hot Pursuit

Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon star in this action-comedy about a cop (Witherspoon) tasked with transporting a drug dealer’s widow (Vergara) across Texas. Vergara recently spoke with Good Morning America about filming the movie and a lawsuit her ex-fiance filed about embryos the couple froze while together.


Catch It Before It’s Gone

Keller 8 Cinema welcomes Monkey Kingdom and Black or White. Black or White was decent, but nothing to really write home about. I even had high hopes for it with Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer starring. Monkey Kingdom is a nature documentary about a baby monkey and its mother. Tina Fey narrates and Taylor Swift contributes a song, “Safe & Sound”, along with The Civil Wars.


 

Make It A Redbox Night

Redbox welcomes Selma and The Cobbler this week. The Cobbler stars Adam Sandler as, well, a shoe-fixer guy who “stumbles upon a magical heirloom”. There’s a question as whether the film ever actually played in any movie theaters. It doesn’t even have an entry on Box Office Mojo. I rented the movie earlier this week and didn’t find hardly any redeeming qualities. I actually wondered how anyone ever agreed to throw $10 million at this script. The Cobbler is actually getting decent reviews from the Redbox community though. Selma is a movie I think everyone should see, so if you haven’t seen that yet, then rent it from your local Redbox.

Another movie that you may not have heard of is what I’ll be renting tonight. Bad Asses On The Bayou stars Danny Glover, Danny Trejo, Sammi Toibi, John Amos and Loni Love. It’s also know as Bad Ass 3: Bad Asses on the Bayou and is the third film in the Bad Ass series. The original Bad Ass starred Trejo and came out in 2012. The second installment added Danny Glover to the mix. Both films have actually gotten pretty decent reviews on Amazon. Think of this as a B-movie Expendables mixed with Taken.

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.
