Tyler Perry’s Boo 2! A Madea Halloween
Tyler Perry is back with Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, in movie theaters this weekend. Boo! A Madea Halloween made $28.5 million during its opening weekend last October.

Only The Brave
Only The Brave, in theaters nationwide this weekend, is based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots. The story of the “specialist wildlife fighter” crew’s fight against the Yarnell Hill Fire in Arizona back in June of 2013 was first told by Sean Flynn in the pages of GQ.
Taylor Kitsch, Jeff Bridges, Miles Teller and Josh Brolin portray firefighters on the big screen. Brolin, who recently completed filming on Deadpool 2 and Sicario sequel Soldado, lost 40 pounds for this role. The role is somewhat familiar to Brolin, who worked as a volunteer firefighter in Arizona before his film career took off.
Jennifer Connelly, Andie MacDowelll and James Badge Dale are also among the cast.
Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $12.3 million for Only The Brave.

Gerard Butler, Jim Sturgess, Abbie Cornish, Andy Garcia and Ed Harris star in Geostorm, in movie theaters nationwide this weekend.
The disaster flick looks at what would happen if satellites orbiting the earth meant to control the weather instead suddenly turned to attacking the planet.
The opening of Geostorm this weekend was supposed to happen 18 months ago. There are reports floating around that aside for the typical production work that a big-budget movie like this requires, reshoots were also done after poor test screenings. Even with the delay, some outlets are openly asking if this may be the worst possible time to release a movie like this.
Backers of the film have attempted to combat these forces working against them with clever marketing like this taxi prank with Krivicka,
