Recapping Last Weekend
Madea ruled the box office last weekend. Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween brought in $21.2 million to easily take the weekend box office crown. The sequel fell short of the $28.5 million the original took in during its 2016 opening weekend.
The big-budget disaster flick Geostorm was a disaster itself in its debut at the box office, The rumored $120 million spent on production resulted in a $13.7 million opening weekend.
Happy Death Day brought in $9.3 million during its second weekend of release. The film with a production budget of less than $5 million has now brought in more than $40 million in just 12 days of release in theaters as of this writing.
Only The Brave disappointed in its debut weekend, taking in just $6 million against a budget estimated at $38 million. The Snowman brought in less than $3.4 million.
The investors that put up the $35 million it took to make the Michael Fassbender film can’t be happy. Of course when you don’t give your director enough time to actually film the movie, what do you expect?
Same Kind Of Different As Me, the fifth movie making its debut last weekend, made $2.6 million.
Opening This Weekend
Thank You For Your Service
Miles Teller, Haley Bennett and Keisha Castle-Hughes star in Thank You For Your Service, in theaters this weekend.
The film focuses on a group of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq and their struggles coming to terms with returning home.
Thank You For Your Service focuses on a very timely and important topic. Ben Kenigsberg of The New York Times mentions some very good material you should check out as well if you have plans to see this film.
Thank You For Your Service trailer
With a script from the Coen brothers and George Clooney behind the camera, Suburbicon got off on the right foot. Unfortunately, the film starring Matt Damon and Julianne Moore is not in good standing with critics like Peter Travers of Rolling Stone.
Let’s just say that Travers isn’t a fan of the finished product.
It didn’t fare well with Justin Chang of the Los Angeles Times either.
Critics alone shouldn’t stop you from going to see a movie, however. Check our the trailer for Suburbicon below.
Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $7.3 million for Suburbicon, by the way.
Jigsaw, in theaters this weekend, is the 8th film in the Saw franchise to hit theaters.
The film focuses on the infamous Jigsaw killer from the franchise and if you liked the other 7 films, go see this one.
Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $14.8 million for Jigsaw.
See The Exorcist At Keller 8 Cinema This Weekend

Make It A Redbox Night With The Layover
The Emoji Movie is the biggest movie new to Redbox this week. Spider-Man: Homecoming and The House are also sure to be popular picks this weekend after debuting last week.
The Layover might not be available at every Redbox in your area, but it is bound to be at one fairly close. Use the Redbox app or Redbox.com to find it near you.
Alexandra Daddario and Kate Upton star as best friends who board a plane destined for Florida. A hurricane causes them to be rerouted to St. Louis instead. The film also features William H. Macy, Rob Corddry, Kal Penn and Molly Shannon.
Lea Michelle was set to star alongside Upton, but was replaced by Daddario due to her commitments with Scream Queens.
The finished film was panned by critics and scored a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes, leading to a very limited theater release.
The cast — including Upton, Daddario and William H. Macy — were in St. Louis back in 2015 to film scenes for the movie at locations around St. Louis.
Any movie filmed in St. Louis is worth the couple bucks to rent from Redbox, right?
