Recapping Last Weekend
San Andreas exceeded expectations in its debut weekend with a final total of $54.588 million in ticket sales. That figure was likely pushed by a healthy dose of 3D showings. Pitch Perfect 2 had a decent third weekend with $14.8 million to push its domestic take thus far close to $150 million. Tomorrowland, which was pretty good by the way, dropped 56.7 percent to $14.3 million in its second weekend. The George Clooney flick is luckily doing well overseas so it won’t be a total failure for Disney. Mad Max: Fury Road (I am still trying to figure out what I saw more than a week later) brought in $14.17 million in its third weekend of release. Avengers: Age of Ultron closed out the top five with $11.4 million
Aloha came in right about where its expectations were for its debut with $9.67 million.
Deadspin calls the Entourage movie the “hate-watching event of the summer”. The Atlantic didn’t really feel like the television series adapted well to the big screen. Kevin Connolly and Sabina Gadecki are “love interests” in the film and in a real-life one as well.
Melissa McCarthy, who recently lost 50 pounds, stars as an unlikely secret spy in Spy. She’s joined by Jude Law, Rose Byrne and others. Rolling Stone gives the film, directed by Paul Feig, 3 and a half stars.
Screen Rant is calling for Spy to bring in about $43 million this weekend.
Insidious: Chapter 3
The first installment in the Insidious trilogy brought in $54 million back in 2011. Chapter 2 improved on that with $83.5 million in 2013. Producers went from $1.5 million to $5 million on the budget between the first film and Chapter 2. No word on what Chapter 3’s budget is. Bottom line is if you want to be scared, go see this movie.
Catch It Before It’s Gone
Keller 8 Cinemas in South County welcomes Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 and Hot Pursuit this weekend. I’ve seen both of these movies and thought both were decent. Neither was expected to win any words and you should know what you’re in for going to see them.
Make It A Redbox Night
Now available to rent at your local Redbox: The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, McFarland USA, Black Sea and Blindsided. The only one of these films I’ve seen is McFarland USA starring Kevin Costner. I thought it was excellent and it really made we want to run home from the theater. Then, I realized how far that actually was and got in my car.
