Opening This Weekend
Maze Runner: The Death Cure
The Maze Runner saga comes to a close with the release this weekend of Maze Runner: The Death Cure.
Finally the movie franchise based on the books by James Dashner comes to a close.
Dylan O’Brien’s Thomas and his cohorts last graced screens in 2015’s Scorch Trials. It wasn’t supposed to be this way, however. Death Cure was originally scheduled for a 2017 release, but then O’Brien suffered an injury just three days into filming in 2016.
It would be 11 months until O’Brien returned to the set to finish the film. He almost didn’t return at all.
O’Brien was filming a Death Cure stunt in March 2016 when the injury happened. The young actor got hit and possibly run over by another vehicle while filming the stunt. The failed stunt left the Teen Wolf star with facial injuries, a concussion and brain trauma.
Fans of the Maze Runner franchise like myself can now see Maze Runner: The Death Cure in theaters this weekend, complete with footage from the day star Dylan O’ Brien was injured.
Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $22.8 million for Maze Runner: The Death Cure.

See I, Tonya or Lady Bird at Hi-Pointe Theatre This Weekend
Hi-Pointe Theatre is a hidden gem of St. Louis. The Hi-Pointe Backlot is even more so, hidden behind the main theater on McCausland Avenue. Hi-Pointe has been around since 1922 at the Southwest corner of Forest Park and below the world’s largest Amoco sign.
Hi-Pointe Backlot came on the scene in 2015 on the second floor of a building right behind the main theater. It took three years of rehab before the owners of Hi-Pointe spent 60 straight days putting the final touches on the space. The 48-seat theater has drawn stellar reviews from movie fans.
See Lady Bird this weekend at Hi-Pointe Backlot, while I, Tonya plays at Hi-Pointe Theatre.
