Unforgettable, Grow House and Phoenix Forgotten open in theaters around St. Louis this weekend as the only movie opening in wide release. Logan, The Shack and Lion open at Keller 8 Cinema this weekend in South County this weekend. Sing and The Founder are among the movies now available to rent at Redbox.
See Grow House tonight at various theaters around town, including MX Movies. Going In Style and The Fate of the Furious are also playing this weekend at MX Movies in downtown St. Louis.
Recapping Last Weekend
The Fate of the Furious easily topped the weekend box office in its debut last weekend, but just missed clearing the $100 million mark. However, the Fast and Furious movies are massively popular around the world and F8 has already passed $550 million worldwide.
The Boss Baby continued its stellar theater run with $16 million in receipts over its third weekend of release. The animated film has now grossed more than $100 million domestically.
Beauty and the Beast sold $13.7 million worth of tickets in its fifth weekend of release and has now brought in more than $450 million domestically and more than $1 billion worldwide.
Spark: A Space Tail played on just 365 screens across the country and made $117,000 over its debut weekend.
The Lost City of Z was in limited release last weekend, playing on just 4 screens. It averaged a very nice $28,000+ per screen and will expand to 500 screens this weekend.
Opening This Weekend
Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson star in Unforgettable, in theaters this weekend.
Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $12.9 million for Unforgettable.
It probably isn’t a coincidence that a movie about marijuana opens on April 20. Snoop Dogg, DeRay Davis, Malcolm McDowell, Lil Duval and Faizon Love star in this film written and directed by DJ Pooh. Please remember if you are going to see this movie that marijuana, or “The Pot” as I like to call it, is still illegal in Missouri for some asinine reason.

Phoenix Forgotten isn’t a true story, but it is based on events that actually happened. Back in March of 2007, three mysterious lights were seen in the night sky over Phoenix, Arizona. Justin Barber and T.S. Nowlin wrote this screenplay about three teenagers that go looking for the source of the”Phoenix Lights.”
Ridley Scott, Wes Ball and Mark Canton are among those getting producer credits on this film. Those three were also behind Alien, Maze Runner and The Martian, respectively.
Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $3.4 million for Phoenix Forgotten.

Make It A Redbox Night With Sing or The Founder
Sing, The Founder, Live By Night and Isolation are among the movies now availble to rent at your local Redbox.
Live By Night stars Ben Affleck and Isolation starts Dominic Purcell of Prison Break fame.
Michael Keaton has had a pretty good run lately with Birdman and Spotlight. In The Founder, Keaton stars as milkshake machine salesman Ray Kroc. Kroc meets the McDonald brothers when their tiny restaurant in California begins ordering the Prince Castle machines. Kroc visits Dick and Mac McDonald (Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch) and the rest is golden arches history.
